When I had hardware I loved to fed the sound of my drummachines through the filters of my Moog Little Phatty & Korg MS20. Amazing stuff. :)

This looks like something I want big time. But I have a question... The old stringmachines used divide down techology that prevented tones to phase-cancel (right word?). How does this works on the VSM? Can you play octaves and chords in octave without it sounding like thin s**t? I am asking because ...

The JD-800 sure is nice looking. :) My top 5: 1. Yamaha GX-1 (for being a big and white spaceship) 2. Moog Prodigy (for the size, wood and panel) 3. Korg MS20 (for the patchpanel and upright panel) 4. Yamaha CS15 (for the black finish and complex panel - lotsa knobs) 5. EMS VCS3 (for looking like a ...

this is the best demo i've seen on the tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_nYscWhctw The guy who owns the Roth Händle studio (Mattias) really has a thing for Mellotrons (I don't blame him!). Great vids and great machines. This is my favorite Mellotron film. Yeah, Tara is nice as well. ;) http://...

Re: Korg Ms-20 vs Little Phatty

Which of these do you think is more versatile? Korg MS20. Because of the two filters and the patch panel. But I don't think that you can compare these two as they offer you two pretty different palettes of sounds. They make a great pair because of that. I love them both. so many of the Little Phatt...

Reason 4. Redrum is my main weapon. I don't use any of the samples that's built in Reason though.
I sometimes use Ultrabeat in Logic as well. But Reason is better for the CPU.

Yamaha SY-1. Didn't know s**t about synths back then. Loved the creamy sound and the aftertouch.

Of course the Yamaha GX-1 could be the one, but it weighs considerably more and I don't ever think it's possible to buy one, unless you're a big time musician. There was one on e-bay. It wasn't serviced though and it was expensive as h**l. Anyways.. money makes the world go round. If I had that amo...

I can't choose just one synth FFS! That's cruel! :lol: Ok...I guess it'll be the Moog Little Phatty. It's a synth that I've loved from the the first time I tried it. I used to have one. Miss it like h**l. A second synth that I would love to say is my number 1 is the Yamaha GX-1. Everything I've hear...

I've owned LOTS of synths over the past 6 years. Both analog and digital. I've sold them all and lately I have found a great joy in just making music with a laptop and a few softsynths. In fact I haven't been this creative in a long time even though I had some of my dream synths right in front of me...

Re: Every picnic needs a synth, MusicMuseum Stockholm

^ that is a waste of a good Synthi-AKS , it should be getting used not stuck in a glass case Still, it's a chance for mortal ones like me to see one in reality. ;) After all there are more Synthi AKS in Sweden that are in use. I wonder how many GS-1 there are in use... Happy that they never put Ben...
