Re: How would you solve this?

Thanks, and sorry for being impercise! I'm flying in from europe and wanted to save around $1500 in duty. Since we'll be travelling thru the US on a fixed date, a pick up in miami would be the only place possible. Don't know anyone in the area anymore, despite living there for a few years in the pas...

How would you solve this?

Waiting for my easel and should pretty soon be next in line (1210).
I'm going to the Bahamas in April, with a stop in Miami, so the idea is to have BEMI send it somewhere nearby and pick it up there, in a month or two.

How would you solve this?

Cheers!

Re: jupiter 4 filter behavior

Im selling my jp6e atm. Sold the j60, p600 and poly6 over the years.
They were all good sounding synths but nothing like a JP4.

Will NEVER sell the jp4! One of a kind machine that I rate above all my others. Maybe it's just me.

Re: maplin 5600s worth it ?

That is surely a lot I paid. But atleast 3 have actually gone for more and I expect a well made one in good condition to rise quite a lot within some years. One went for £4950 at VEMIA :o How many synts can make sounds like a Maplin 5600s? Not a single one I ever tried, it's a monster and uniq imo.

Re: maplin 5600s worth it ?

I have all the documentation for the 5600s. I'll supply a little demo of mine since there is just about nothing out there about this seriously wicked machine! This is shortly after I got mine and I know very little about modulars and matrixpanels so don't take this to serious :) I paid €3300 for it ...

Re: Random thoughts about synths

Be glad you live in this modern age where you have the possibility to buy cheap. In the old days everything was expensive. Very expensive! Today must be THE BEST TIMES EVER for a electronic musican. Free vst's, cheap digitals, even cheap analogs and most of all the eurorackmodulars can be had very r...

Re: moog Prodigy or moog MG-1 ?

I love to praise the mg-1.
Fattest bassynth around, atleast so is my piece.
To play the polysection on top of a already running monosequence is just lovely.
How many synths can you do that with..

Re: first moog synth...

Never played a micro but I do have a mini and a mg-1. From what johntron says: "I'm looking for the cheapest, but warmest moog synth." what can be warmer then a mg-1.. Not sure about the micro's bass potential but the mg-1 does some seriously wicked bass. I use it way more then the mini (which I har...

Re: Realistic/Moog MG1 vs. Sequential Pro One

More so just for fun than an actual answer. I am interested in any opinions. I was talked out of buying an MG 1 by a friend a few weeks ago so now to see what other people feel. You have a Pro One, but you should have gotten the MG-1 too. I would say that they both provide extremely different sound...

Re: Psychedelic hardsynth

Yes you are right dan, it's the mind behind the machines that controll the outcome of things. Also the "new gen" is very skilled, have great production techniques together with drive and determination, no question of that. I feel I miss a bit of that recently. I uploaded something for you skweeegor....

Re: Psychedelic hardsynth

Problem with trance production, is precisely, that it left its primary intention: being creative and innovative electronic music. If you copycat an innovative producer, you are screwing him and screwing you. 90% of trance tracks, have no traslation into an acoustic melody. I mean, it's almost impos...

Re: Psychedelic hardsynth

I just wanna throw this out there if you're not aware but a lot of psy artists these days have moved to software. Even the big guys like Cosmosis who were all hardware back in the day use mostly vst's and for the price, you could get something much more powerful than in the hardware realm like zebr...

Re: Super vintage kitsch all-in-one synth

Elka x-705 can do it all? :) Following is a review from another happy X-705 owner: "It has full drawbars for top and bottom. It also has a string/cello synth (polyphonic), like the Elka Rhapsody, available on both manuals, as well as a "piano", and "harpsi". There are a few organ presets and synth p...

v-synth can only dream of Neuron's textures. not on the same level imo. Neuron was a truly unique design. one of my favorite digitals of all time. i wished so many times they'd re-instate the company and continue developent of new products based on this technology, alas.. not a likely scenario. any...
