Re: snobbish question / best PW

Prophet 5 is good too, you can do cool things with the envelope and the square wave LFO on the mod wheel too, bizarre cascades and echo FX. The MKS80 pwm's nicely too.

Re: Why Aren't More Classic Synths Produced Today?

[quote="Hair"]I don't think the market would be niche at all though, being able to buy a new Moog Model D Reissue would probably be successful comparable to the level of Gibson's Custom Shop Les Paul Reissues quote]

I agree, I heard the EMS re-issues are sold out for years to come, big bucks too.

Beethoven was knowledgable but I wouldn't trust his opinion the Voyager and Model D. :toothy7:

Re: Vintage synth prices to drop dramatically in downturn ?

The MiniMoog's a classic, it's got THE unique Moog sound, it's a great performance instrument and nothing comes close, least of all the Voyager. If you ever get the chance to A-B the pair in the same room you'll know what I mean... and they ain't making anymore Minis! But it says "Minimoog Voyager"...

There is nothing wrong with eBay references but they asked the people here for their experiences with your gear and service.
That was my thinking, to get some more personal hands-on feedback that's all.

Tone Tweakers Vintage Synths

Has anyone ever dealt with these guys? Lots of equipment, no prices though.

Re: Hartmann Nueron VS

Show whatever you think is worth showing! I don't think so, an individual sound is meaningless without a context. The Neuron's good but it's over now, past and gone. I'm keeping an eye out to see what the Hartmann team do next, I gather the guys involved in the Neuron have also done work for Waldor...

Re: Cheapest price for a Minimoog.

I think you'ld be very lucky to find one under £2000, although you may find one over in the US for the equivalant in dollars.

Re: Hartmann Nueron VS

As for the Neuron, do you have any spectacular sounds you can show? And with spectacular I mean: 1) nice/impressive to hear (so, no weird noises, burps, metallic blibs etc.) 2) not really doable with alternative synths, like FM8, some modular, etc. The thing about the Neuron is it makes great sound...

Re: Vintage synth prices to drop dramatically in downturn ?

Frankly, I'm surprised that the Model D is still fetching such inflated prices. I know that it's earned its rightful place in platinumhood, but in the wake of the Voyager and Voyager OS, Id think that its worth would've remained near $1,500 US. I just saw one from the UK in eBay Store going for ove...

Re: what are your favorite digital synths?

PPG Wave 2.3 is my favourite, but that's an analog/digital hybrid. Pure digital synths... the Hartmann Neuron, but that's a computer hiding in a keyboard case so it's more like a giant plug-in! My all time favourite digital synth is the first Nord Lead, then the Waldorf Q, I've not played with the N...

Re: Hartmann Nueron VS

I've always thought of the Neuron as some kinda Roland VP9000: no doubt it's technically interesting, but what do we do with it? When I played a Neuron in a shop I found it a bit boring actually. At first glance I could only make sounds worse. :D It's overkill for acoustic/samplists, it's overkill ...
