Roland SH-1000 : Question about the sample & hold

Hello, I have a simple question regarding the Roland SH1000's random generator : When I switch it on, it starts playing by itself (from the G note in the middle of the keyboard). Then I start pressing keys and the tonality change. But when I release the key it doesn' t hold the last note but rather ...

Korg Polysix : American to European voltage

Hello, I'm living in Canada and I'll be flying to France next week. There's someone in France who has shown interest in my Korg Polysix and I'd be interested to bring it in with me to Europe in order to sell him the synth. Now I'm wondering if my Polysix will play fine in Europe with the voltage & f...

Re: Proof that Roland are indeed insane.

Constraints are part of the artistic craftmanship. Roland gives artists a big challenge here by inciting them to create something worthy and original by only using these cheesy sounds. Respect!!!

Re: 8bit osc+Analog filter synth

The Commodore 64 w. Cynthcart has the warmest filter I've ever heard.

Re: Micromoog appreciation thread

I LOVE the sound of the Micromoog! ...I have entertained the idea of selling my Rogue to buy a Micro on multiple occasions...idk if I will actually do that or just keep the Rogue and buy one anyways... Question: how well does the Micro work with a MIDI to CV converter? I have a master MIDI keyboard...

In other words, it's just a suntanned grey sh-101.

Re: Most important synthesisers in evolution of electronic m

The Minimoog has probably been the most important synth in rock history. The VCS3 has probably been the most important synth in 70's electronic music. The DX-7 has probably been the most important synth in 80's electronic music. The TB-303 has probably been the most important synth in 90's electroni...

Re: synths: more with less OR less with more?

Gear aquisition syndrome is a real plague among musicians; synth armadas and walls covered with euro-racks, tons of plug-ins... Does it help us to make better music? I don't think so. Forums such as VSE, MuffWiggler and Gearslutz doesn't help much. From my point of view, electronic music peaked with...

Re: synths: more with less OR less with more?

When I was composing pure synth music, the most efficient way to compose music was by using an all-in-one synth sequenced by an intuitive hardware sequencer, supported by one or two simple analog synths with a raw sound (played manually). In my case it was MC-50 + Korg Z1 + (Minikorg700/sh-101/Juno6...

Re: Micromoog appreciation thread

I would not trade the Micro for a Phatty especially since it seems that you have a Voyager.
Be faithful to your first love. :)

Re: Micromoog appreciation thread

The only Moog I've ever had (would have liked more, but ...) I did this with a Micromoog: http://www.soundcloud.com/mach4/where-would-we-be I appreciate it a fair bit The middle section in waltz time (starting around 2:50) really hit a sweet spot on me. It has a nice W.Carlos touch. Nice music!!

Re: Micromoog appreciation thread

An other µ-Moog user here. From all the monosynths I got over the past 10 years, it's the only one I've kept. It can either be fuzzy, retro, spaced-out, fat, filthy, thin or plain odd; very organic and alive. I like its beautiful non-screaming resonnance. With a Kenton box, I have an extra vibrato a...
