Re: Your latest musical purchase

I wasn't going to buy one of these but they lowered the price so much I couldn't resist. A Behringer Model D from Guitar Center for under $200 with the 15% off coupon code.

Re: Ok synth heads, name that synth from Flatliners

Roland S760's came along a few years later in the 90's. The S770 was very new in 1989 and wasn't widely available until 1990 so the 16-bit Roland S-series is not likely a possibility. If he used anything besides Yamaha, Fairlight, or Synclavier it could be an Emu, Akai, or Roland 12-bit sampler.

Re: Ok synth heads, name that synth from Flatliners

Howard had an association with Yamaha beginning in 1982 so he tended to favor Yamaha products. The only Yamaha sampler available around this time was the TX16W. He also could have had an SY77 or earlier DX/TX series gear. He was a big fan of KX88 MIDI controllers and owned several.

Hum can usually be eliminated by replacing the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

Re: My first Synth

The Roland Go Keys is cheap with high quality sounds. No sound editing but has sampled sounds and some Synth sounds in mono mode. If you want something more versatile check out the Casio XW-P1. It has dedicated Synth, Organ, and Sampled sections all of which can be edited. A bit more money but look ...

Nord Stage 3 Compact. These things are so expensive but I finally got one of these after months of looking for a good deal. Found a perfect condition B-Stock unit for almost twelve hundred dollars less than A-Stock.

Re: SIX-TRAK battery replacement and still presets will not

An experienced tech would have tested the unit to make sure it was working properly. I would take it back to him and have him track down the problem.

Re: Still possible to get a Juno 60 for a good deal?

It seems Juno 6/60's are at about $1200 minimum asking price right now wherever you look. There is this Akai AX60 on CL for $700 and a couple on Reverb for a bit more. It is pretty much functionally equivalent to the Juno 6/60/106 but has VCO's, Split, Mono-Mode and Pitch/Mod Wheels.

Re: Buying First Synthesizer (Under 1500 Euro)

The Kurzweil SP6 has some of the best Piano sounds currently available. It also has the KB3 Tonewheel Organ section which allows you to make your own Organ settings rather than just play fixed Organ samples as on other keyboards. The SP6 has many sounds that you will not find on any other keyboard i...

Re: Synths used in The Psychedelic Furs- Love my way?

Todd Rundgren was interviewed by Songfacts regarding "Love My Way". Here is what he had to say: Songfacts: Todd, "Love My Way." Whose idea was the marimbas? Todd: They had a demo of the song, and I don't remember what the instrument was that they were using. It might've been just a guitar. But I hap...

Re: Looking for 1967-69 record of out of tune Moog

It might be "The Minotaur" by d**k Hyman. It was released as a single edited down from a much longer album version.
