I know Autechre make use of FM synthesis, dunno about specific models though.

Re: Gear Trading Thread

Got a Moog Minitaur here I'd like to trade for a MS-20 Mini. The Minitaur is in great condition and, of course sounds huge.

Also, I have a Yamaha TX7 that is collecting dust. If you're interested and have something of equal or similar value (cheapo synths, FX or whatever), get in touch!

I bought Rhino's JX-3P. Everything went very well, shipping was extremely quick and packing was top notch.

Thanks Rhino!

Re: MiniBrute vs CS-10/15

One thing that baffled me about my CS-15, is that there is no hard sync between the oscillators. I mean, we already have a separate knob that acts like a pitch envelope, called VCO1+2 glide. It's like it was meant for sweeping sync/ringmod effects, but they just left it out. This is bit of an omiss...

Re: Ridiculous eBay 'Buy-it-now' and starting bids.

Thanks for the replies, yeah the price does seem a bit much. Maybe the seller agrees too since the listing has been ended early.

Re: alesis micron & akai miniak

I bought a Miniak on a whim when they reduced the price. It sounds ok I suppose, but it has to be the most poorly designed piece of c**p I ever came across, programming it is a nightmare. I don't mind a bit of menu diving (actually quite like it, on the right synth), but the way things are laid out ...

What would be a good price for a VX-600? They're pretty rare, with a pretty neat looking spec. I'd like one, but I wouldn't want to pay over the going rate (again).

Re: Juno 106 vs Jupiter 4 vs Jupiter 6

the big downside (for me at least) is that i would have to play the keyboard too much, no midi for a poly is a pain for non keyboard heroes. could be different for you. There are a couple of really nice, well priced midi mods available for the the JP4 that are surprisingly easy to fit (I was able t...

Re: Analog synth/sequencer

I think you're right, the 202 won't save patches without batteries (same with the tr-606). There's always this though (I believe it works through the tape interface): http://www.defectiverecords.com/mc202hack/index2.html what is it: a software application that works with your Roland mc-202 synthesiz...

Re: Gear Trading Thread

Looking for a Yamaha cs-30 and an Oberheim Xpander, I have the following to help make it happen:

Korg Mono/Poly
Roland JD-800 (sans keyboard and right panel)
Kurzweil K2000 (comes with a ton of extras)
Korg Z1

Also willing to sell under the right circumstances, so get in touch!

Re: Recommendations for First Synth

It's not for everyone, but might I suggest you take a look at the Alesis Fusion? its got a bunch of different synthesis engines (virtual analog, sampling, rompler, FM, brass modelling), a built in sequencer and multi-track recorder.

The 88 key model really is a beauty IMO, it's my desert synth.

Re: Analog synth/sequencer

Yamaha's CS-30 come's to mind, the sequencer only has 8-steps but there's something magicial about the machine as whole.

For a lot less money, you might want to check out the Roland MC-202, or Sequential's Sixtrak or Max, all three have pretty decent built in sequencers, the MC-202 especially.

Smelly Uncle

Here's something I put together a few weeks back. Please excuse the 10 seconds of silence at the beginning, I should do something about that. This track features the SCI MAX, Korg DW-8000, Mono/Poly and a bunch of samples taken from my old eurorack modular. Drums are ultrabeat. http://soundcloud.com...
