Jupiter 6 for ?

I sold my Juno-106 for a Jupiter-6 a few years ago. After really using the Jupiter I came to the conclusion that it's not my bag, it's too airy? I actually liked my 106 more. I have a DSI P08 and a Univox/Korg 700s and both, though different, are very present. I use them in a rock setting with live ...

Re: Moog Sub 37, finaly a new poliphonic Moog?

I'm so excited. I was very close to buying a Sub Phatty and rehousing it in a larger enclosure with more keys! I'm glad life got in the way of that project. I will be purchasing this bad boy for sure!

AG too bad on the political shenanigans. I always enjoy your thorough synth reviews.

Re: Beatitude - Ric Ocasek

Well after much research and watching the Cars Unlocked DVD for my Cars tribute band I found there were a few staples and some rotating synths in Greg Hawkes career. Early stuff was a Univox MiniKorg 700, Sequential Circuits Prophet 5, Arp Omni, some sort of Yamaha EP, and a Vox Jaguar. I've also se...

Roland Jupiter 6 mod

So I cracked open my jupiter 6 to do mod the resonance to vca level as per this page (mod 3): http://fa.utfs.org/diy/rolandjp6/ Much to my surprise there is already some sort of mod, although it appears to be an attemp at a service note that was done wrong? R82 (33k) was replaced with a 20k and 120k...

Cross Mod, Audio Mod, Ring Mod?

Are cross mod and audio mod the same thing? If they are, is that the same as freq mod? Also are they different from ring mod? I read SoS Synth Secrets, Part 13 and technically understand what is happening, but can't find enough applicable information to discern the 4 types of modulation. All I know ...

Re: VSE - Good trader/seller thread

Purchased my Jupiter 6 from Joshy. Excellent transaction, accurate description, and photos of the item. Would definitely do business again with this gentleman.

Re: TR-909-->Prophet 08

I am pressing and holding a chord. It will only play the first note then hang on both the arpeggiator and sequencer, nor does it play when I latch the arp.

Re: Building a MIDI controller

The folks at Keyparts UK treated me really nicely with my 61-note keybed (with aftertouch) and their keyscanner. The keybed itself is so delightful! http://synthhacker.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-big-polysix-mod-adventure.html Chip I don't want to step on the original thread post, but I was super insp...

Re: TR-909-->Prophet 08

So it appears it must be some type of setting on the P08. I just acquired a MiniBrute and it receives clock from the 909 just fine via midi for the arp. I, for the life of me, can't find any other information in the manual to get this to work.

There is no mode adjustments of that type for the arp.

TR-909-->Prophet 08

I am trying to use the 909 as a master clock for my Prophet 08's sequencer and arp. The P'08 is set to receive external midi clock, but, when I push a key it will trigger only the first note. it does not continue the seq or arp. Am I doing something wrong or is this just a case of wacky midi impleme...

Re: DIY Midi Bass Pedal Project

Nice! Thanks for the link. I've been meaning to do that for a while. I've had the pedals. So... I just purchased a board! (now, to see how long it'll take to build it :-S ) I spent a total of about 5 hours doing the whole deal including planning. It would have gone faster if I'd made an all wood en...

DIY Midi Bass Pedal Project

Here is some photos of a set of Tarus style MIDI bass pedals. I got my organ pedal set on eBay for $25 and ordered the MIDI CPU from Highly Liquid . They provided excellent tech support on their forum for helping me configure the brain. I recommend them very much for anyone looking to make their own...

Re: Mono Synth

As far as vintage is concerned, I'm not too worried about the "prestige" attached, just the knobbage and VCO's. I really do notice a much more distinct character from the 700s vs the two other DCO synths I have. After looking at the suggestions I narrowed it down to the Minibrute or the Sub-Phatty. ...
