Re: Last remaining good value analogue poly synths?

How about something really ghetto like a Crumar Stratus? The last one I saw was around £300.

Re: Jaga Jazzist new album - studio performance video

That did nothing for me. Very boring in my opinion. A poor man's Snarky Puppy at best.

I heard there's a hidden menu setting in this one that transforms the synth into a fully functional C3PO, but it could be a myth.

I want Yamaha to make a digital motorbike. Fed up of the analogue ones.

Re: Either stupid or brilliant keyboard setup...

The Velcro's a good idea.

If you're worried about the paint then an alternative could be a non-slip/rubber mat that you simply lie on the top of the Electro and place the Miniak on top.

Re: Either stupid or brilliant keyboard setup...

That depends on if you call it a tool or an investment. Does a carpenter care if their hammer gets scratched, or is it a tool to get the job done? There's no reason you can't look after your tools. How about something like this? You could make the flat part lie horizontal at it's lowest setting so ...

Re: Roland JD-Xa

Roland says 'I got something cool to show ya' haha

It sounds massive, but I dislike the shiny/gloss front panel.

Re: Modal (Modulus) Goes Insane at Messe: three new synths

The 008 looks phenomenal!

I wonder if they'll release a 007...

Speaking of numbers, have the model numbers been explained? Or is it obvious?

Re: March competition '15: New age-dolphin-crystal-healing s

Does your track have to include the obligatory flute solo which lasts 90% of the piece's duration? Must it include the sounds of light wind, water and chimes? Can I lace my track with a secret binaural beat which causes the listener's chakras to vibrate at the same rate as a hummingbird's wings hove...

Re: Korg R3 and modifying micro-tonal pitch changes

The Novation Supernova 2 (and probably Nova) may be able to help you, although it is not as portable as the R3. The Supernova 2 has a bunch of drum programs where each drum/cymbal hit is a single program assigned to a key within a 'drum map', however you can make your own drum maps by mapping your o...
