Re: SHIOITOR

i honestly don't care if it does sound like an sh-101, good sounding synth's are good sounding synth's. True, I think D16 makes some of the very best plugins hands down. Shioitor sounds good for a softsynth but doesn't replace the real sh101. Maybe for the studio sequencer people but not for keyboa...

Re: SHIOITOR

Then don't buy it. Or maybe you should upgrade those c**p speakers your using. :lol:
I don't buy software synths and you know nothing about my speakers, dude. That Youtube demo is clearly damaging D16's business.

Re: SHIOITOR

I'm sorry but I can't help pronouncing it "Shitor". What an unfortunate name choice :-). While the D16 effect apps sound great, the youtube video of Sh***tor sounds like your average freeware soft synth. I actually think this demo is spot on showing what software synths are about. Even the immortal ...

Re: AN1x demo....finally

So what exactly are synthesizers about? Everyone has to discover it for themselves. It will take a long way to convince me that turd is gold because X or Y did it. I don't think music is infinitely subjective. There are some objective limits that define good music. Common sense and self criticism a...

Re: AN1x demo....finally

I don't intend to be mean or attack you in any way, just honest thoughts that I hope is what you're after. These sounds are not very good, they are harsh and unpleasant to listen to. I can't imagine any enjoyable track based on these patches. There is a possibility that at this moment you don't quit...

Re: Why buy hardware synths?

I suggest you visit my youtube channel, www.youtube.com/mvsmsx I love your videos, but I think FM8 is exceptionally light on CPU. I couldn't run Arturia's JP8 demo without choking on long release sounds. That's when you buy a better computer. Or rather that's when I buy a hardware synth :-) Anyway,...

Re: Why buy hardware synths?

Thanks CS_TBL, that explains a lot. Now, back on topic, what do you do in software if you need to play three keyboard synths, each with its own effect chain in real time? In my experience, the quality software synths and effects that sound awesome would choke the computer in this scenario. You guys ...

Re: Why buy hardware synths?

The reality is that these programs are really lightweight and don't do a thing unless they 1) get updated (chatchannels) or 2) you do something to them, like moving their window. I'm not a programmer but I think these programmes are active all the time, running in loops, constantly sensing whether ...

Re: Why buy hardware synths?

Because hardware synths sound so much better then fake a*s emulators and soft synths. I've played software synths that sounded better than my Yamaha CS2x and this fact shatters your statement into pieces. What you're saying is too general. Some software synths sound better than some hardware. I'd s...

Re: Evolve or stick to it

I think, the mood of the music should remain the same. The exact replica of the sounds isn't that important because there are many ways of expressing the same mood (vibe). For example, take a famous classical piece, Claire de Lune. It has substantially the same impact on me, no matter whether it is ...

Re: Star Trek Synth Question (The Original Series)

I've just recreated the sound on my DX7.

DX7 Heart Monitor http://www.mediafire.com/file/xiyqzzmkm ... onitor.mp3

I'd only need a short delay effect to make it spot on.

Re: Why buy hardware synths?

Why buy hardware? Because I play hardware keyboard synths not soft synths, guitars, turntables, trumpets, drums, and so on. Why doesn't the OP go to a Guitar Forum and ask people why buy hardware guitars?

Re: What Synth?

The bottom one is the DX7. Pretty futuristic in it's own way. At the top tier - Roland D50

Re: Yamaha - enemies of synthsis!

Why would Yamaha make another hardware FM when FM7/FM8 pretty much makes it moot? I know the older synths have the benefit of lower fidelity D/A converters and that sets them apart Is there any reason you think keyboard players should be deprived of their FM keyboards just because someone wrote a c...
