Sequential Circuits Pro One Sequencer How to...

I love my sci Pro one Sequencer, and I often end up with really need little sequences. The trouble is replicating them later. You have to flick the play/rec switch back and forth to add breaks in the steps, and I always seem to loose track of how many times this has been done. Any advice would help ...

I traded 2 synths for 1, was it a good deal?

I traded a broken Roland Jupiter 4, and a broken Arp omni mk1 for a near mint SCI Pro One. The jupter 4 had been serviced and judged a expensive, complicated repair. The omni had never been to a shop but had a lot of keys that would just flat out sustain. My Pro One works great and I love it. But I ...

Electribe EA-1 and vintage synths

I have a handful of vintage synths, a Dr. Rythym 670, and I just bought a electribe off clist for $100 dollars. I figure its a good deal, considering they will probably be over-hyped and over-valued in about 3 years as the wave of whats considered classic and vintage piles higher. Poor mans tb303?? ...

Not a very inspiring thread considering I'm in the process of purchasing one that has "issues". Operantly mine has problems with the memory functions. Is it a grim situation?

My Realistic MG-1, first off, only $300 bucks (cheap for a Moog), and when you drop out oscillator one and two, and turn up the polyphony/bell tone, you get a totally different sounding synth. The Moogs definetly have that "organic" er unruly filter quality. Also I prefer my Sh101 to the Juno synths...

Skinny puppy

Im not for sure but isn't he referring to a Prophet VS? Not a Prophet 5. It would make sense because vector synths sound so industrial it hurts! Pick up a Yamaha SY-22 if you want cold, metallic, ambient drones. The thing has a preset called industry that sounds like a robot-slave mining operation! ...

Awhile back the second oscillator on my DS1 stopped working, so I opened it up to have a look-see. What I found was exactly what was previously mentioned, well labeled individual PCB's for every stage of the synth that could be individually removed and serviced. I took them all out and inspected the...

I gotta be the front man baby! I love synths and use them to write and record with, but in my band I just sing/scream flipout. I can't be chained to a keytar!

How much do the Spirits go for? Also, does anyone know how rare my DS1 is? It has a really low serial number, like 51 on it. Somebody else posted on sonicstate that this means a very low production number. I can't find hardly any info on it, this site doesn't even mention it! It just skips forward t...

HAHA!!! Thats the truth. I think Ive carried him on my back for long enough. It is hard to find someone to play with though!! The guy we want to play doesnt get back in town for a month. I am getting to the point where I chuck the whole band and bring a multitibral synth/drum machine. Then it will b...

Sound like a good plan, its multi-timbral right? So I could save sequences and just press "play"? That is too simple, DOES NOT COMPUTE!!!!!!!!!! I also cant afford one right now. But I will take this info into serious consideration. Thanks!

KILLER ORGAN!!!

Theres a Crumar T1 on ebay right now for like $300 bucks. They are awesome whacko B3 synths from the 70's. I also had a Roland EP-20 electric piano awhile ago that had great 70's lofi synth tones. I had a a Yamaha Cp-20 too, it was a electric piano but it had a great organ sustain function, and a co...
