Re: NI Maschine Integration?

I traded my Maschine for a Roland MC-808 and I am selling the MC808 to re-buy Maschine. Maschine is pretty much what I need in a sequencer/DAW. I love how fast it is to write songs and grooves.

Re: Blofeld, Radias, or Ion?

You can't go wrong with a MS2000. I sold mine for exactly what I paid for it.

Re: Blofeld, Radias, or Ion?

I object.

Learning synthesis (hands on) is about knob tweaking not menu diving.

If the Radias is too much $$ then go for a Korg MS2000 and sell it when you want something else.

Re: NI Maschine Integration?

Maschine can only send note, pitch & mod wheel info. No CCs. As a midi controller it is fully functional though. Maschine cannot import midi files.

I have a Maschine up for sale BTW

PM me

Nice mod. I'm looking to pick up a CZ-101 as my next buy. Any other mods known?

Re: DUTY fees

It's roughly 10% plus GST & PST for synths. Still not bad considering music gear is 50% more in Canada.

Re: modding/upgrading the ESX

I had the same complaints about my ESX. As I understand it, you'd need to probably rewrite the OS to read the USB & upgraded memory if you could add it. The only mods I've come across online are paint jobs and changing the LED color. I've also seen a a mute switch installed. I ended up selling mine....

Re: difference between ERmk2 and ER...?

The ER-1 has ring modulation and the MK2 replaced that with cross modulation.

Re: MFB MultiFilter, was this thing ever actually produced?

That would have been pretty awesome. I've been thinking about getting the Filterbox but I haven't heard any good demos on youtube of what its capable of.

Re: Programs for converting wav to ESI?

HAHA. Now that I got everything figured out the volume dies. LOL.

Is it worth it to get the volume repaired, upgrade the ram and buy a PCI card? I'm thinking no.

The Roland SP404SX looks like it might fit my needs. Plus it can hold up to 32gb on a SD card and those cards are pretty cheap.
