Re: Selling the Phatty for a Mopho?

in my opinion, the "mopho sound" stinks. I know you can do a lot of different things with it (I've owned the module and the keyboard version), but it either sounds murky and soggy or grainy and dirty. Never has the smooth/clean sounds that a Moog has (though I've only owned the Voyager and the Micro...

Re: Wine Country Prophet 5 Repair Costs?

bumping this thread because I just started a repair transaction with Wine Country and it already feels like a rip-off and a mistake.

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

What do people think used Voyager rack mounts are worth? I keep "winning" auctions at around $1,250 only to have the person pull the plug at the last minute or not meet the reserve. Seems everyone thinks they should get $2k for it even when you can grab a used Voyager keyboard version for less than ...

Traveling with sensitive synths

Leaving in a month to tour Europe and we'll be taking an older, and much loved, Micromoog along with us. Last year when we went overseas my guitar needed some spots re-soldiered after the flight, despite being in a hardshell case, and we'd be seriously screwed if the synth was damaged when we arrive...

Re: Micromoog problem/ where to find parts?

Sortof similar Micromoog problem: If I turn up the Release the note dive-bombs in pitch while it's drifting off. It's as if I glided to a much lower note. In fact, it seems to go down to the lowest A. If I have the Release turned all the way down the synth is fine. It did this one day, and then late...

Re: staying in tune

had trouble at my friends' house. must be the synth. bummer. It was kinda weird: let it warm up for 5 minutes or so, had trouble keeping pitch (again, going too sharp), played for 15 minutes in the lowest octave, kept having some trouble, switched to a higher octave and then back down to the lowest ...

Re: staying in tune

Micromoog worked well at the show. Played the 45 minute set without noticing the tuning getting bad.

Any particular power conditioner you would recommend?

Also, when I DO have problems with the tuning, the pitch alwaysseems to drift up/sharper. Does this help with any diagnosis?

Re: staying in tune

Yeah, I sortof doubt the temperature thing has anything to do with it, since we're only talking about the room going from 65 to maybe 80 degrees over the course of a couple hours. I've had an electrician sent out by the landlord (about a year ago) who checked everything out and just said, "Yeah that...

staying in tune

the last couple nights my micromoog has been totally unable to stay in tune for more than a few minutes, and I'm wondering if it might be an outside problem. The house I'm living in is quite old and has some serious electrical problems. My guitars buzz like crazy, and not just the normal hum. Lights...

Re: Small analog synth recommendations?

Thanks for all the awesome suggestions!
How would one start with modules & controllers?
and what's a reasonable price for an SH 01 or 02 or 09?
I realize that patience is pretty key to get something decent on Ebay.

Re: Small analog synth recommendations?

Thanks for all the tips so far.
Definitely looking at the CS 01 as a possible bet. A friend has one I'll borrow and try out.
The SH-101 goes for around $1,000 right now, so...
The bass stations cheap construction might not be a good idea since I'm planning on using it live/on tour.
