Re: Korg Minilogue Polyphonic Analog Synth

Did everyone just give up on this synth in the last couple months? I was expecting more posts.

Guess that synth: Genesis edition

I've always loved this song. I couldn't find much information, so figured I'd ask here. What is the lead synth on the chorus of this song? Thanks.

Re: New analog boxes from Korg?

The drum machine is actually four part analog, then the rest are PCM samples. On Korg's website it lists "analog synthesis" as the synthesizer type for the bass and lead model. It also lists a VCO. So does that mean these things are actually true analog machines for $150? Not a deal-breaker, just c...

Re: Making music on a 25 year old computer

Sorry, I should clarify. The video I posted is not me, it's just a random Youtube of the program I used. Originally (1998 or so) I composed songs on the Macintosh SE. Years later, I transferred them to an emulator on my laptop. The program itself has 4 tracks. If I remember correctly, you had a choi...

Making music on a 25 year old computer

I unearthed my Macintosh SE today. Back in the late 90s I wrote many songs on a program called MusicWorks that came with the computer. Although simple, it was the best I had at the time and was quite fun. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's a sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdQJN...

Juno 106/ HS60 slider repair?

There's a Roland HS60 for sale that I'm interested in. According to the seller everything works fine, but 2 sliders are missing. I'm not sure if the ends are broken off or the whole thing's missing. Anybody have a ballpark figure as to what this type of repair would cost at a shop, or how involved i...

Re: Roland r5: should I keep it?

Ive messed with this thing a bit more and havent resolved the velocity issues yet. Id like to try cleaning the contacts before I give up on it. Has anyone done this, either on the r5 or something similar? Where should i start?

Re: Roland r5: should I keep it?

Tallow: I no longer have the SR16. I'd like to own only one drum machine. The RY30 looks interesting, especially the large assignable pad at the bottom. I also like that it's been used by NIN, apparently. I started messing with the velocity curves for the pads today, and was able to get a setting wh...

Re: Roland r5: should I keep it?

Tallow: I feel that even after cleaning the contacts, I'm still going to have to hit these pads really hard to reach full volume. The "kick" pad is the only one that feels like it's less responsive, but they all take a really hard hit to reach full attack. When using an SR16, I was able to dial down...

Roland r5: should I keep it?

I just recently got a Roland R-5 human rhythm composer. I'd heard alot of good things about the R8 and thought this would be similar enough. The programming seems somewhat convoluted but I'm getting the hang of it. The main thing that's bothering me is the pads. I feel like I have to really hit thes...

Re: Analog alternative to Alesis Ion?

I understand im not gonna find an analog with the complexities of the Ion, and i think thats okay as long as its got most of the things on my list. georgemarauder and Sir Ruff: I agree guys. The Ion sounds pretty great to me and It's got tons of options. The problem seems to be reliability. First, I...

Re: Analog alternative to Alesis Ion?

Thanks for all the suggestions! I think I could do with a 2 osc synth, 3 is cool but I dont think only 2 would be a deal breaker. I was considering a Juno 106 or something similar, but I dont like the fact that it dosent have keyboard velocity. There's a Korg Monopoly in my area that I was thinking ...
