Re: my first synth

Seconded on the KS4. It will cover a wide array of sounds, and it's not too bad to edit either (not much menu diving). And it has built in effects. (reverb, delay, chorus, etc.)

I still have mine after many years.

Cheers

Re: Have mini moog - on to sequensers - ?

I am going to go through the whole Automaticgamesay youtube series Be careful. There is an awful lot to get through. ;) I am looking at a sequencer where one could change the pitch (or notes on the fly) like the Beatstep Pro. Word of caution on the original Beatstep - I have one - whilst it is a lo...

Re: Modern poly to complement Jupiter-8?

Yeah, I kinda already wrote Rev2 off in my OP, since I didn't like the 08's character. I'll try it out in the store when I'm trying the others, though. I'd be interested to hear what you think. I found the Rev2 similar to the 08 in person, except the Rev2 seemed less harsh, with more sweet spots (o...

Re: Modern poly to complement Jupiter-8?

Don't forget the Rev2*! My only regret is not getting the 16-voice version.

(*) But aye, the Summit sounds gorgeous too.

Re: Korg vs Behringer Odyssey

The Boog I have doesn't feel or sound cheap; only time will tell on quality. I see that the Bodyssey has FS keys. That said, the Karp mini keys comes with a pretty solid carry case thrown in, which I've really come to appreciate. The build quality is excellent, and it sounds very close to the real t...

Re: Analog synths. Need your advice !

Re: split patches. The Rev2 also has a simple sequencer that you can use to drive either bass or chords on one patch, whilst you play lead on the other split patch. The sequencer can do a lot of other things too, including sequencing just about any parameter on the synth. Particular to drones, you'v...

Re: Synthesizers - Where to start

That's a nice amount of money to start, but imo, spend it incrementally. It's really easy to waste money on things that don't work at all for you in synth world. Start on the low end of things. Balanced advice from Jabs there, although I'd narrow that down a bit further: start on the simpler end of...

Re: Question about hooking up two Arp AXXE synths

There's a huge difference in the filters. Go to a store and try out a Korg ARP Odyssey to hear it. It has a switch to select all three filter versions (including the original 2-pole Odyssey filter that preceded the 4-pole "Moog" filter). Just chipping into to agree. It does change the character of ...

The most Moog for you can get for you money? The one they never made.

Re: PolySix worth buying?

I have multiple friends who have bought DSI Rev2 and have has SOOOOOOO much problems with them straight from the shop. One of them even works in the shop and still couldn't get a new one. Then I rather put my money on the mojo. I have a DSI Rev2. Mine too had problems at the start. But the support ...

Re: PolySix worth buying?

Just a thought. For $1400 or thereabouts, there are several gorgeous-sounding modern polyphonic analogue synths, which have more features than you could shake a PolySix at. (eg. MIDI, USB, extensive mod matrices, etc.) Of course, synth preferences are a very personal thing, but it's worth bearing in...

Re: My first Synth

Sorry CJ, but I'd suggest the OP stays away from FM synths: FM programming is, while very powerful, quite intimidating to the uninitiated. Compose This: I think what you are looking for is called a 'sound module'. These modules are essentially massive patch banks full of predefined sounds, from horn...

Re: ARP Odyssey vs ARP 2600

The Oddy can sound harsh, but the modern KARP Odysseys have three different types of low-pass filter -- this can help soften the sound (if you want to). I would get the Odyssey because it's great synth. For portability, the KARP mini-keyboard edition comes with a sturdy carrying case too, which make...
