Re: new stuff

good stuff man - very driving/propelling melodies and beats - I like the mix too, you've got a nice blend of everything.
What kind of gear are you using?

Re: Roland Integra-7 compared to the SC-55/88/880

So basically, you have 4 virtual slots to either load SRX cards (1 slot), SuperNatural Expansion (1 slot), or the updated GM sounds (all slots). So up to 4 SRX cards at once...but if you want 1 sound from that card, you have to load the whole card. For me this is not an issue but for some it might b...

Re: Roland Integra-7 compared to the SC-55/88/880

I don't know a whole lot about the SonicCell, but at a glance looks like a mostly XV/SRX expansion driven sound module - 128 megs total memory for samples. The Integra 7 (a recent purchase) blows it away in all respects except polyphony which they share the same (128 voices). It has every single SRX...

I Basically went through a dozen ebay/craiglist synths (older used ones) because there were *Few new affordable, interesting synt...

Re: 13 song LP on bandcamp: trip hop/IDM/samples/synths

you aren't jaded, that is about how I see the state of things - I thought about spamming it to a few labels; really just to get it heard, I have no delusions of grandeur - but yeah like you said gets old hawking your own stuff then getting like very few listens and/or very little feedback. But hey -...

Re: 13 song LP on bandcamp: trip hop/IDM/samples/synths

Thanks for the reply! I'll try to search out other forums/blogs (don't know exactly where this style falls?) and yes, I agree I'm going to upload these to soundcloud shortly. Basic creative process usually begins with drums/sampling from old movies/vinyl. I use a MV-8800 and Roland SP-555 for sample...

Re: The thread of many (analog) polys

JX3p w/ PG200 - Nice, sounded a little thin, anemic but liked the sequencer. should have kept - fun to mess with, would not want as my only poly though. Juno 106 - Currently own; mine is kind of beat up but gorgeous sounding. It's a little basic in terms of what you can do, and single DCO but really...
