Re: Favorite sub-$200 Reverb/Delays (Hardware)

The Minifooger Delay really is superb for the price. It has a really nice character, the drive is a huge plus, and even when you crank the feedback it still sounds almost musical. I'd say you have to pair with an expression pedal to get the full breadth of the pedal.

Re: Rhodes Chroma Polaris vs Roland Juno 60

Own both and have for a long time. The Polaris is definitely the superior instrument by a long shot, two osc per voice and great modulation capabilities, vs. the Juno's One DCO per voice and single LFO. In addition, if you are a more expressive keyboard player, the velocity sensitivity on the filter...

Re: how's your midi studio setup

I really like the Kawai MAV8 for a general MIDI patchbay. The sliders on the front make it really easy to change the setup on the fly and send MIDI to different synths especially if you have instruments that only work in omni mode preventing you from using different channels and daisy chaining. For ...

Re: Remixing a song...royalties,etc.

in short, under fair use, you can hack, mangle, bastardize, remix anything your heart desires. a 'bootleg'. you cannot however, charge or profit from remixing something you dont have the permission of the copyright owner to do so from. an 'authorized' remix. many of the remixes you have prob heard ...

Re: Low frequencies problem on Juno 60

I agree it could be an issue with the HPF slider, try tapping down on it in its lowest position and see if the low end clicks in momentarily. However, if you are using the same unmodified preset it shouldn't be an issue - another way to check is see if te preset is noting that it has been modified a...

Re: best -Juno60- retrofit for today

I had a CHD, worked fine for MIDI I/O, ended up selling it, now I trigger the Juno's Arp with one of the channels on my Vermona DRMII. Advantage with this is I can set the pulse to whatever swing or off-beat pattern I'd like and it stays locked in sync. I'd recommend this method of programming pulse...

Re: MiniBrute vs CS-10/15

I agree with most posts above re: the CS synths. I had the chance to play a Minibrute for a bit, was very impressed by the build quality and the filter. The arppegiator is also pretty fun to tinker with. That being said, it is more reminiscent of a DSI mopho in that the sounds are typically very "sa...

Re: Standalone MIDI-Synced LFO?

Yeah a Mopho could work - run into the Line In, and set the LFO to Sync with the MIDI clock. Anybody have a Mopho they would want to try this on? I have some questions... So say you run, for example, Prophet 600 Audio Out -->Mopho Ext In----->Mopho Audio Out--->Mixer/Amp/Speakers MIDI Clock Signal -...

Standalone MIDI-Synced LFO?

Does anyone know if a product like this exists?

There are modular LFO units, but what I'd like is a standalone unit I can run the audio out signal from a synth through and modulate based on the MIDI Clock - basically it would allow me to add some synchronized wobbles and stabs to any analog synth...

Re: Alesis sr-16 or Roland r8 ?

The R8 is decent, and you can get decent control for rhythms, but not really of the sounds themselves. The onboard sounds are pretty dated, and the cards are expensive. The midi timing is not rock solid when slaving to another sequencer. I personally didn't like the pads that much, but the multi ou...

Re: MIDI Patch Bays and SYSEX Messages in OS X?

your midisport 8x8 can work without computer. search for midisport remote in your spotlight. it's a GREAT patchbay. Only problem is it isn't being recognized at all by the computer (or any computer for that matter). I'm getting some new firmware chips sent to me by M-Audio hopefully this fixes the ...
