Re: So... Why no love for Jordan Rudess?

Yeah and his product videos aren't even the good kind, they are kind of like the, "get me pumped up like a 12 year old kid, and then show me your killer chops so I want to buy" kind. When I am watching a product demo, I want to see the product, how it works, its potential, and not some guy shredding...

If you are getting weaned off of it, you are the one doing the weaning. I don't think anyone is forcing such matters. :thumbright:

I am in Indiana, purchasing software and hardware as I see fit

Eurorack taught me way more than I have learned from my other synths. I know that my sdiy cgs, mfos, bridechamber modular that I am currently building will take that even further

This.

And also, if having the immediate interface of the bass station isn't a plus, just stick with software IMO

Re: The synth used in Toni Braxton's "You're Makin' Me High"

http://www.u-he.com/cms/tyrelln6 This one is nice. Probably one of the best free ones around. Just use one osc, no unison or anything, and focus on getting the envelope right, and setting up the lfo as you like it. Then slap some delay on it. The delay is key, and it will probably take more tweaking...

Re: The synth used in Toni Braxton's "You're Makin' Me High"

The patch also has a bit of delay on it too. I would totally skip out on the lpf, and make the patch as simple as possible, then just dress it up with a tad of delay.

Re: The synth used in Toni Braxton's "You're Makin' Me High"

I am not going to be much help, but just practice with the vsts, or download some saw lead presets. It should be pretty easy to recreate. It sounds like an lfo is set to modulate the oscs pitch and is probably routed to a modwheel. My advice is to stay away from the lpf, and other than that, it shou...

Re: warming up a mix?

I liked your advice Cruel Hoax. Although I never find myself mixing or mastering, as I enjoy most making new sounds and not necessariy trying to make a song with them, when I try I will remember this.

Re: A modular synth or a Buchla Music Easel?

First of all I don't think you'll get terribly good advice from this forum, as there aren't that many people who have a modular system here. There are a few of us though so you'll get something, check out Muffwiggler for better advice on modular systems though. Well the Easel is a small modular sys...

Re: buying my first set of monitors

I got a pair of m-audio bx5a for $155 used. They are great for a first pair of monitors, which is what they are for me. Someone else may shoot them down, but they don't seem harsh or anything to me. They are one of the few gear purchases I haven't regretted. I don't see the point in spending more fo...
