Re: Need a Dirty Sounding Poly VCO Synth.

You are right the 80 has DCOs. Sorry. It is the 60 with a single VCO. Also, your imagination is either very limited or you know little about being gay. To think playing Jump on a synth has anything to do with Man-to-man love. Being a man and giving another man head while playing jump on a synth, no...

Re: Need a Dirty Sounding Poly VCO Synth.

Clearly, with your ears, the only solution is for you to build your own synth. That sucks. That's why I have been saying that there needs to be a polyphonic modular synthesizer company. It's a shame that every polyphonic analog synthesizer has to sound bland, cheezy, 80's-ish, and lack any characte...

Re: Need a Dirty Sounding Poly VCO Synth.

I have heard Akai AX-60 or AX-80 forget which one, is the ploy synth of dirty delight. Hopefully, someone who has played both will chime in. Both VCOs. the 80 has 2 VCOs per voice and the 60 has 1. The 80 is missing all the hands on controls of the 60 though. I know that synth but havent heard it. ...

Need a Dirty Sounding Poly VCO Synth.

I feel that I must first preface this by saying, I think 80's music is cheezy. I am not into prince music or anything else remotely 80's. I think playing Van Halen "Jump" on a synth is one of the gayest things you can do. I like dirty nasty sounding synths. I hate the sound of most DCO synths. They ...

Re: What version ARP Odyssey do you have?

FYI - I received my Odyssey 2810 in the mail. It has a very low serial number of 0129, yet it actually has the 4035 filter in it. I don't know if its luck of the draw, as far as which chip the maker grabbed out of the bin when building this synth, but ....yeah, even serial #129 has the 4035 in it. T...

Re: Thoughts on "time envelopes" and this forum

1. People are already making replacement voice chips for the CS-80. Many other non-readily available parts are also already being reproduced. 2. Its analog, besides the chips (which are already being remade), all the other parts are common place and in everything. 3. Some of us out there are already...

Re: Little Phatty Lack of Knobs

I recently had to sell my Moog Prodigy to pay rent (sad times). So I was thinking about someday replacing it with a Little Phatty...but the lack of readily available controls on the Phatty has me concerned. Has this been a problem for people? Or do people not seem to mind? Thanks! There's no advant...

Re: Jupiter 6 Voice Layering

Yes Europa 2.0 beta which I've been testing for a long time has layer mode and the other really cool thing is 5 times the patch memory. The only real problem holding it up is a bug with external arpeggiator timing. AWESOME, if I assume correctly that any regular europa owner will be able to get the...

Jupiter 6 Voice Layering

I was recently blessed with the opportunity to rip off some kid and get his Jupiter 6 for less than half the going rate. I didn't think I would like the super bright, super 80's sound, but it is so unique and powerful that I have fell in love with it. So now I am looking into getting the Europa mod....

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

I think what's special about the Polysix is that in order to fix one (that suffers from battery leakage), you have to be a bit more than capable of simple servicing. I can do some elementary soldering, but I don't think I would be able to fix a whole broken CPU board in a Polysix. In my case that j...

Re: For first analog synth, Moog Prodigy Or Moog Source?

The Prodigy is the perfect choice. It was my first good Analog synth. The micromoog was also a good suggestion (its awesome and more dirty sounding, and it has awesome sample and hold for the moog filter!) The little phatty and source are terrible choices. If you want to get your first taste of anal...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

I sold a new Juno 106 for $1350 last week. I sold a new Polysix for $2150 last week also. That should say a lot. Mostly, it says that people are crazy. Yes, there is something wrong with the world. If you offered me a Juno 106 for $100, I wouldn't buy it... and that was the first synth I ever had. ...

Re: Andromeda

Sir Ruff - do you happen to have an audio example of this phenomenon? I want to hear it! Afraid not - but I probably described it well enough in that thread. It's basically a permanent high frequency LFO modulation of the oscillators (most noticeable in higher octaves) which results in really uneve...

Re: Thinking of Buying First Analog Synth

There is no use in having one $5000 monosynth. I think that only the Arp 2600 can make enough sounds to be worth that. You would WAY better off buying a few different cheaper synths. Buy a model D or a regular voyager and two or three other synths. Obviously being that you are new to the analog synt...
