Re: Mono analog synth?

Re: How much to pay for a FR-777?

i think the 777 excels at far more than acid.

i only have a FR XS at the moment but the 777 is very appealing. It has a really unique filter and lots of modulation options that no other 303 clone has

Re: Local repair guy has had my polysix for 4 months

i'd be really paranoid and take pictures of my synth's guts before getting it serviced. i bet there are some who harvest chips and such from other's synths

Re: mono synth advice...

the MC-202 shares most if not all of the sh-101's innards.

food for thought if you're tracking down that liquid roland sound

Re: Modern Analogs That Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

the Future Retro XS is just f**k sick. highly programable and more modulation options than most current analog monosynths. i love it. to get the absolute most of the the XS's abilities though I highly suggest getting some decent FX for it. The XS can do leads and basses and many many sounds that don...

Re: Novation x-station

the sh-201 is very decent for a VA at its price. that said. the build quality disturbed me. nothing broke on my 201, but i disliked the cheap feel. i picked up an X-Station to use as a controller and interface. The build quality is good, much better than the sh201. It has more FX too. the X-station ...

Re: A Universal Editor/Librarian for Hardware?

a librarian wavetable editor for the microwave XT would be awesome. midi-quest is too f**k expensive. i don't want to pay for unsupported software which is probably just a burned disc over ebay(soundiver). looks like i may have to resort to newsgroups to get full functionality out of my microwave xt

Re: Spectral Audio Neptune II or Moog Little Phatty Stage II

i dislike MFB's OSC and build quality. good filters though

the Neptune II and LPII are both very capable synthesizers. patch memory is nice but i love programming so I would go with the Neptune if you have a decent keyboard/controller.
