Re: Other 8-bit samplers?

Yep the Jomox stuff is 8-bit. The samples in my Airbase sound gritty and punchy, I like it. Hopefully picking up a Mirage soon, i'll let you know how it goes. Here's a couple of classic Techno related Mirage demos: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=3T1bmvRBcqg&feature=related http://uk.youtube.com/watch...

Re: New Future Retro product coming.

I reckon it will be a sequencer what with the Mobius being discontinued and the XS lacking one. An FR Drum Machine sounds pretty good in my head though! I have a Revo Mk. II and would love to buy an XS but I need to spend money in areas other than synths right now. However if he released a Drum Mach...

Re: New LinnDrum II Design

Definitely still interested in the product although I am a little surprised by the DAW line.

Maybe it would have been better had they stuck with it being "just" a drum machine. I already have one MPC 4000.

Anyway, we shall see what develops. I am thinking this could be one pricy bit of kit! #-o

Re: Roland MKS-70 Questions

Thanks for the Reply Z.

I'm sure the controller thing is possible, the last PG 800 I saw on eBay was going for £275 ($550)!

Anyone sucessfully using a hardware controller (other than the PG 800) with an MKS-70?

Cheers

Roland MKS-70 Questions

I have been looking into the Roland MKS-70 and was hoping you guys could help with a couple of questions. What is the approximate value at the moment? (I'm in the UK) Is it possible to create a map for a hardware controller (e.g. Novation Remote SL which transmits sysex) to replace the PG-800? It is...

Re: Looking for a decent low-end analogue console

I was sadly outbid on eBay in the last ten seconds this afternoon.

The auction was for a used Ghost 32 for a very good price (around 1/10th the cost of a new one!). Pretty gutted :(

Ah well, the search continues......

Re: MFB Kraftzwerg modular

I was thinking of picking up a Synth II but have recently decided to go for one of these. Will keep my eye out for a second hand one in the UK, if not I'll pick one up in Berlin.

Thanks for the review, going to have another read through!

Re: Wonky/fidget basslines

Sounds like LFO modulation of the cutoff as you say. I would try at least two oscillators, the first a deep sine wave for the sub then add in a sawtooth / square or two for the body. The right amount of detune between these should get you nice and wonky. I think these Benga vids may help you, slight...

Re: Looking for a decent low-end analogue console

Thanks for the replies, I'd forgotten about this thread. Now considering a used Soundcraft Ghost. The potential to upgrade components is definitely of interest. I've also been to look at this Allen & Heath Saber http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Allen-Heath-Saber-16-mic-16-line-8-Group-Mixer-USED_W0QQitemZ26027...

Hi madtheory, thanks for your reply. The desk is for studio use only. I am looking to achieve high quality mixes, so while I would like a bit of vintage "warmth" I don't want to end up with a dirty old desk that needs a full re-cap etc. Have been considering modern Soundcraft & Allen & Heath. I need...

Looking for a decent low-end analogue console

Hi there, I am currently looking for a decent second hand console for our studio. The budget is up to £1000 ($2000). I will mainly be summing line level signals (MPC, Synths, Drum Machines etc.) so quality of the pre amps is not too important. I have been offered a Soundcraft 500 for £300 ($600) Als...

I was also interested in that Pulse + (from SOS?).

Would be interesting to hear how you get on with it. Does seem to be great value for money in the current market. I certainly have my eye out for another one.

Thanks for the link to the auction I'll check it out.

From what I have gathered most people are using Notator.

If you need any Atari bits this guy is a specialist in the UK http://www.keychange.co.uk/

I have been talking to him today via email, sound guy.

Cheers man

Can you run MTC to a MIDI input on the front of unit for sync, or would that not work? Unfortunately none of our hardware generates MTC. This would be a way of getting Logic slaved to the hardware though. I have a JL Cooper PPS 100 MIDI/SMPTE Sync generator that I need to experiment with. It may be...
