Amiteque TX81ZT DIY project

I don't believe this has been posted here, but for fans of FM synths, this is an interesting "rebuild" of Yammy's classic 1U FM monster the TX81Z:

I can't find anything else about it, so it might be completely fake, but it's a cool idea.

Re: Casimir's Blake 2010 Album Released - A Space Techno Epi

Cheers Th0mas.

It's all Ableton Live. Some hardware synth sources, and just working hard in arrange view. Session view is for techno producers... :? maybe! I just like to get a good melody going, add some bass, and usually a track grows from there.

Re: Elektron Octatrack

It looks awesome and like a perfect live tool, it's nice elektron really listened what everyone wanted. If only other companies would do that. Can it chromatically sample, like an ESX keyboard part? If not, that makes it useless to compose with. Yeah, but that has nothing to do with what he said......

Re: KORG ESX-1 vs KORG microSAMPLER

Irritatingly the ESX only has 2 "keyboard" parts, I'm getting desperate for an Electribe (or similar) that has multiple sample "synth" parts like that. I have not tried the MicroSampler, but I hear that when you sequence with it, it can only play one melodic / chromatic sample part AT A TIME. If thi...
