Re: MS2000 vs Prophet 08

It's rude when I say it but not when you do? How does that work? It works like this: I haven't insulted anyone personally, I just did a general statement. But you insulted me directly. See how it works? I insulted you personally by suggesting that the MS2000 can sound good with the right programmin...

Re: MS2000 vs Prophet 08

I hate the MS2000 sound...sounds super thin, cold, digital and lifeless... I love my Tetra...whoever says it doesn't sound good, seriously need to learn some programming tips... I'd say you need to learn some programming tips for the MS2000. Really? Well thank you for being so rude... The basic sou...

Re: MS2000 vs Prophet 08

I have played a lot with a MS2000 (we had one at the music school I teach), and I own a Tetra (similar to the P08)... I hate the MS2000 sound...sounds super thin, cold, digital and lifeless... I love my Tetra...whoever says it doesn't sound good, seriously need to learn some programming tips... Bott...

Re: Why having so many analog polysynths ??

I know some people don't like DSI sounds because they're too precise. And they definitely can be very rigid. But add what they call "oscillator slop," a bit of detuning, and a sublte LFO and you can get some very pretty sounds. I can make my Tetra sound very organic using its very sophisticated arc...

Re: To buy or not to buy: Emulator II+

The SSM 2047 is almost identical to the 2045. Read here: http://www.synthtech.com/cem/ssm2047.pdf Any of these 3 differences in my opinion cannot justify the huge difference in KennethA's examples...you can hear for yourself... What´s your opinion, If none of these? Man, I really don't know...that'...

Re: To buy or not to buy: Emulator II+

Emax is not a complete replication of EII. Different sound of them depends on at least three factors: First, the bit resolution on the Emax is 12 bit ADC, 8 bit internal, 12 DAC. EII is 8 bit in all sages (=linear). Second, the Emax has 6 different sampling frequencies to choose from. One of them i...

Re: To buy or not to buy: Emulator II+

Yes, the Emax is the EII on an IC with external analogue filters. A VSE member posted a comparison of the same sound sampled on an Emulator, an EII and if I remember rightly and Emax as well, and if memory serves they all sounded slightly different. That would be me .-) Read and hear it here: http:...

Re: Woo! Picked Up A TX7! Great Little Synth...

I got a TX802 for the same price as a TX7. Was shocked at how close FM7/8 is to the sound. I tried a patch called Superbass which I believe is quite famous, the 802 sounded slightly punchier but more tone in the midrange and metallics at the upper end although you seriously have to put them side by...

Re: To buy or not to buy: Emulator II+

I've always thought that the Emax 1 is essentialy an Emulator II and sounds (almost) identical...anyone can confirm this?

That's cool but you can achieve the same thing with a nice chorus...
