What's happening with EMS ?

Their website doesn't look like it's been updated in 13 years. Those prices can't still be viable. It seems like a brand with the potential to come back fighting, since their vintage stuff has so much status among collectors. With outside investment they might emulate Moog's comeback based on their ...

Re: Mopho - am I missing something?

Maybe a simple patch on a vintage does have qualities the Mopho can't replicate but you can't beat the complexity of a DSI product with anything for that price.

Re: whats happened to the new linn drum

On the subjects of noobs. I've posted 43 times and I'm still a noob. I've been checking out this forum regularly for over a year and found only enough conversation matter to post 43 times. Nothing much seems to happen round here unless it's something for elitists to complain about.

Re: lowest prodution run of a major synth manufacturer

Wow that's a lot of money for a VCS3, maybe it's the condition? There weren't many EMS Synthi 100's made, I believe you could count the still-functioning examples on the fingers of one hand - possibly the most valuable synthesisers.

Re: Korg and Roland -- old again

Dewanatron are doing interesting stuff. I think Yamaha should do an FM synth with full hands-on control like an MS2000.

Re: Roland Connect - Countdown!

I'm more interested in the C-200 because it has fortepiano (also because I could probably never afford the new Jupiter). I think digital keyboards being used to emulate acoustic keyboard instruments is a positive thing because of the size and expense of the real instruments. Even some classical orch...

Re: Resurrecting Old Brands

To Cornutt thanks for the information. Otherwise, it's a shame some of you have to be so rude. Do you expect me to bow to your superior knowledge? What a sad culture there is on this forum.

Resurrecting Old Brands

Moog (r.i.p.) and Oberheim have become visible and operational once again, the former in a major capacity. Buchla never went under, and Dave Smith is back in the game (missing the old Sequential name presumably for some legal reason). There's obviously a good market for modern retro music hardware, ...

Re: Korg MICROkorg

The Microkorg was my first synth too but I played piano and arranger keyboard before that. I would say that the Microkorg is a good synth to learn on at least for a compact portable type because the parameters of the editing matrix are printed on the front plate. If you want to learn how to program ...

Re: Roland Gaia

I would recommend it for a beginner because the layout it hands-on, simple and straightforward. I think a good synthesist can make great sounds on anything if you are creative and learn its architecture properly. Im sure a skilled user with a GAIA could blow away a noob with a CS-80.

Re: getting too caught up in tech

Programming and playing synths is just a fun hobby for me. Even if I hardly do anything practical with it this stuff has good resale value anyway. I like designing sounds and jamming around with them, but I have too many other interests to distract me. I know I'll be better off financially if I just...

Re: VSE: Thoughts on the new Atomo Labs product?

I have a Mopho already and I would consider getting one of these anyway. Looks maybe like a future collectable oddity.

Re: Mopho keyboard update

I've got one, I think its strengths are the many sequencers & LFOs, the feedback distortion and the build quality. To be honest I wouldn't swap it for a Little Phatty even though its a cheaper synth.
