Re: Yamaha SY-77 >>>>>> TX-816

I would also consider the TG77 if you are going for the TX-816 style..as there are multiple outputs.

tonally they are different. I love the sound of the SY 77's FM.

Re: Best Linux software for synth nerds and producers?

Reaper under Wine is officially supported. There is also a native port of Reaper to Linux underway but it is still in the very, very early stages. reaper runs pretty well in wine..but i would love a native port..iv'e used the alpha(?) for the native port and it's pretty cool. I'm interested in tryi...

you should try the Zoom st-224. it has that e-mu sp/emax crunch (it's own' version of that but comprehible). and it samples in stereo..and is super fast to chop on.

Re: Korg Mono/Poly vs SCI Pro One

I find the mono/poly to be very limited for sound design despite it's 4 oscs.

Pro One all the way.

Re: Which JX to complement Alpha Juno?

you can modify the alpha juno to self-osc. but back to the original question...I have an mks50 and a jx3p here (doing that eprom upgrade for a friend)..and jx3p has a much classier more expensive sounding character despite it's limited programmability. even a juno106 sounds WAY sweeter than an alpha...

Re: alpha juno 1 & vs alpha juno 2

i think the 49 key size is really fun.

however the dynamics of the juno2 really brings out the synth architecture.

The keybeds of the juno2 have been known to be problematic but fixable.

Re: Emu Planet Earth vs Roland World Card & JV1080

i have the world card..and it's really nice but i think ive outgrown it. however..if you are genuinely interested in ethnic sounds, I would recommend getting a sampler that reads Akai s1000 discs. There are many amazing libraries in that format. I have a yamaha a4000 and it reads s1000, Roland and E...

Re: Korg DW-8000 vs. EX-8000 (vs MS2000r)

Thanks for the input, everyone! I had forgotten about the terrible buttons on my DW, and that alone is totally worth getting the EX (especially for the stupid low price this guy is asking). I guess the joystick and arpeggiator are no big deal either, as I'd be sending MIDI from another device or ke...

Hi Tomás - Actually - I'm wondering if you know of any legitimate sources of Sound Creatures? It sounds fascinating and I'm keen to acquire it. From searching on the Web it sounds like it’s in Japanese only - do you still find it useful? Cheers, Kevin. it's actually pretty neat. I really like when ...
