Yeah, yeah, I see that what I wrote was not so clear again.
I guess I should move on to a French-speaking board where I will not sounds retarded for once.

Re: digital junk

Sudden parameter fluctuation is probably not a mechanical issue unfortunately. Sorry for the gross generalisations from my original post, but I needed to express my frustration for having to ship abroad new material (and that's very costy) for something rather new that will not hold its value. But a...

Re: digital junk

After a 5 years hiatus, I got back into dating and I've met a lot of people over the past few months. I was looking for a man and instead dated a woman, thinking it would be less risky than a genuine man. After 1½ year of sparse use, she started to act weird ; random mood swings, sudden harsh feedb...

Re: digital junk

re : tekkentool I don't say that digital gear is less reliable than analogue gear, but I kinda realised that defective digital gear is pretty much useless, unlike analog. Analog can get fixed easily in mosta cases. And that makes me doubt about the notion of long-term investment with digital gear. A...

Re: digital junk

There was irony on my reply... but what does this blasé-moderator really expects from a vintage-synth-related forum? It reminds me those people on the Boards of Canada forum who are fed up of people speculating about the new album; unavoidable IMO. tallow simply was pointing out how this shouldn't ...

Re: digital junk

I have to stress that neither digital or analog is really better than the other. I've used and had both and they have their advantages and disadvantages over each other. Same for software and hardware. It depends on what you need in an instrument, and what you need to make your music! Reliability i...

digital junk

After a 5 years hiatus, I got back into electronic and I've bought a lot of gear over the past few months. I was looking for was a tape echo and I rather bought an Eventide TimeFactor, thinking it would be less risky than a genuine space echo. After 1½ year of sparsed studio use, it has started to a...

Re: What was your first Moog?

Moog MG-1 Didn't liked the sound and got a Micromoog which has a better tone. To each their own. The micromoog has a lower more subsonic bass tone to be sure, but there are a few feature the MG1 has which it lacks. Like ring mod and two oscs plus the "polyphony" voice. Though teh MG1 lack a pitch o...
