Re: Recommendations for First Synth

Just to double-check, what do you mean when you say "can't double as a piano" for some of the synths you considered? I don't know of any synths with both a knob-per-function interface and the ability to create a realistic acoustic piano sound. That said, you could always get an analog / virtual anal...

Re: what is the cheapest/best synth?

Hi mizu, I'm really just a lurker here as I can't comment from experience on a lot of the fun discussions, but on the subject of trying to snag some interesting equipment on the cheap, I think I can help.

Re: Roland JX3P buttons 9-16 are failing

Bumping an older thread since a lot of the info pertains: Anyone figure out any sources for JX3P buttons / switches? I'm sprucing up a friend's JX3P, which apparently suffered a spill at some point, leaving about 4 of the push buttons wonky (some trigger intermittently, one doesn't even "click" anym...

Re: dusty keys

Try pressing some of the non-functional keys harder, wiggling your finger a little bit while pressing, and see if you can get any others to sound. If that works, I think dirty contacts are a fair bet. Sadly I no longer have my beloved Poly 61, but I did clean the contacts a couple of times. You shou...

Re: hello, everybody i need some help

The firewire ports are on the logic [/"mother"] board, which is what it sounds like Apple wants to replace, given the $650 price. Not really anything else you can do to fix them. What firewire devices are you using? Buying a new external usb hard drive (or external hard drive case) to replace a fire...
