Re: Maniac sembello mysterious sound

Thanks guys!
When submitting this question my guess was that it had to be the clap, but I guess I just wasn't applying enough FX.
Managed to get something sounding pretty close to it now though :)

Maniac sembello mysterious sound

Ok so this has kind of been nagging me for a while... After I loaded in some linndrum samples on my Electribe ESX I found out I had to do "Maniac", of course. :mrgreen: Now, I'm probably not asking in the right place, (or the right forum, even!) - so If you guys know about some place else to go for ...

Juno D vs Juno Di

My local instruments shop recently put up a Juno Di synth on display (Yeah, we're a bit behind here in Norway...). I saw the price was quite low, but I also noticed that Roland still seems to be selling the Juno D. So if they're selling both I'm guessing there's gotta be some kind of difference betw...

Re: I made another video thingey!

Wow, Trond! Fancy seeing you here! :D Yeah, well I'm the guy who bought your ol' ESX. Not to worry, though! A friend of mine just recently brought it to a rep shop in Oslo for me. It turned out it was only a faulty power supply :) It's gonna take about 1400 Kr to fix it/get a new one, but since I go...

Re: Magnetic fields-esque recordings. How?

Well, to tell you the truth I came across those sound libraries at the studio where I worked during the early 90s. There was quite a collection of SFX from the BBC and from other sources on CD, so I expect they´re available online. Since most are now in the public domain, I think it´s safe to try p...

Re: Magnetic fields-esque recordings. How?

Zoom recently came out with the H1. $99 American. By comparison, a Nagra IV-S was about $5K-$7K (without mics). If you can't scrape up the hundred bucks, well..... Nice, I can probably afford that. But will it be good enough quality-wise? I mean.. I've got this portable voice recorder (olympus vn 6...

Magnetic fields-esque recordings. How?

Not exactly synth related, but couldn't think of anywhere else to post this... Every time I listen to tracks like Jarre's Magnetic fields#3 I just want to grab a microphone, go outside and start finding interesting sounds to record. There is, however, something beautiful with the simplicity of the s...

Re: Advice on 80s drumsynth

http://rapidshare.com/files/381841127/Samples.zip.html Hey, thanks! That sure is a lot of sounds! And there's even linndrum samples as well! Cool :lol: So I guess all I need to do is to load them onto an SD card and use them to make some nice beats on the esx-1... Thanks a lot guys! Maybe I'll buy ...

Re: Advice on 80s drumsynth

I've got a sample set of the DrumTraks, TOM, 606, 808, 909, 505, 707, etc that were under a creative commons license. The 909 set is like 167 different tunings/hits! Sounds nice! I guess those are the kind of samples that you could use with an ESX type of sampler? Then all I would need is some linn...

Re: Advice on 80s drumsynth

Hmm, yeah... I think I have come to realize that I am a poor musician that cannot afford everything he wants. Thus, the korg esx alternative seems like the most attractive option. One thing though... Where do I get the samples? I've seen some on ebay, but uhm... You wouldn't happen to know where I'd...

Re: Advice on 80s drumsynth

Thanks a lot for the feedback guys! I really liked the hi-energy, punchy feel of the Sequential circuits drumtraks synth! The Boss DR seems a bit too modern and hip-hoppish to me. With a machine like that I believe I'd end up wondering why I can't just program the beats on a sequencer on the compute...

Advice on 80s drumsynth

Hello everyone! I'm currently in the market for a drumsynth, but i'm not very particular. All I need is a finger pointing me in a direction as to what I should look for. I would really like to obtain a flexible drumsynth that provides punchy 80s beats. I just thought I'd mention some tracks that I t...
