Kenton Pro Solo vs. SQ-1 combo as Micromoog CV controller

Maybe this should be posted under the Help! section, but I thought it was sexier as a shootout! Uh, for as long as I've been working with synths (a "while"), I'm not that versed in CV connectivity etc. I'd like to get my Micromoog hooked up to something as well. I'm pretty certain the Kenton would d...

You Can Move A Mountain - Prophet 6 vs Juno 6

I posted a Prophet 6 vs P5 track a while back. This is another synth battle, this time using the P6 and a Juno 6. In this case, this final mix features both synths together. If anyone's curious beyond that, the original one-synth-versus-the-other versions are up on my SC page as well. Hope you enjoy...

Re: Synth examples, post them here.

Three synth bass tracks, cycling around. The first is a solid but soft Prophet 6, next is a soft but slightly resonant Prophet 5, then a plonkier, more resonant P6.

Prophet 6 vs Prophet 5

Hey all - I've taken an old song of mine and reworked it twice, once with a Prophet 6 and then with a (rev 3) Prophet 5. I did the P6 track here in Berlin, putting down some MIDI files as I went. The P5 lives in California, so I couldn't do an exact side-by-side match up, but I did try to approximat...

Re: Synths and You (the collection of opinions)

1) The synth that made you want to play music: Minimoog... and Polymoog, and anything else featured on Gary Numan's Cars. Crazy thing is I've ended up recording with the very first Mini that Gary Numan used at a studio in Cambridge. 2) Your first synth: Pro One 3) The synth that has surprised you m...

Re: Simple "waveshape-core" question

Curious! Thanks for the replies. Is there a discernible difference in tone between the different types of oscs?

Simple "waveshape-core" question

What does it mean when an osc is described as "triangle-core?" The original Doepfer Dark Energy contains such. The DE II has a "sawtooth core" osc.
Cheers!

Re: Evolver vs BSII

Yeah - I've been much enjoying the Evolver. Using it in bits and pieces so far, dabbling. Sometimes just reaching for it as analog monosynth, other times tripping out on the freako sequencer, trying to get my head 'round! My attempts at using it as audio input have been cute, uh, at best, so far! I'...

Re: Korg Minilogue vs Yamaha Reface CS

Thanks for the Yamaha tip. She did end up ordering the Minilogue and has been cranking away with it since. She and I are both pretty stuck-in analogue types. I had a DX-7 wayyyy back, then a D-50 and neither of those really did it for me. Saying that, I just acquired a DSI Desktop Evolver and can ha...

Re: Evolver vs BSII

Well, I've gone ahead and ordered an Evolver - thanks for the encouragement. It sounds like a unique creature. I'm looking forward to getting lost!

Re: Evolver vs BSII

That sounds about right - I'm well-covered in analog-land. Of course I'm not much a digi-kid, but I've only heard the best things about the Evolver and I'm open to new (to me) sounds. Maybe it's also that it seems an intriguing and challenging instrument.

Evolver vs BSII

I've been pondering getting a Bass Station II for a while. Not that I need another mono synth, but you know how it is! I have a Pro One, an MS20mini, an MS10, a Dopefer DE, and a Micromoog to that end. Plus, Prophet 6, Juno 6 and access to a P5 and PolySix. The BSII looks great on paper and in demos...

Re: Korg Minilogue vs Yamaha Reface CS

Thanks for the input, guys. I went back to the music store yesterday, had another bash on the Minilogue. I wasn't as keen this time, though I admit I was also simply burned out on looking at/for synths! (Plus, Just Music has the Minilogue set up surrounded by weird/creepy red LEDs, making for a stra...
