Re: Best software synths right now?

What's your budget for an orchestral synth? There are ones that cost thousands of dollars, marketed to composers who are doing movie soundtracks and such. Then there's stuff like IK's Miroslav Philharmonik and Garritan down at the low end. I can't fault Kirk Hunter's Diamond Orchestra. Occasionally...

I always thought it was a shame that it was never Multi-Timbral.

Re: Portamento and Amplitude Modulation synthesis

In addition, there are two other aspects attached to Portamento - Log and Linear glide. Linear portamento has a straight linear speed from one note to the next - The Minimoog and many digital synths use this type of glide. With Log portamento, the glide speed decreases as you reach the target note -...

Re: Your latest musical purchase

Picked up a Behringer Neutron From DV247/Music Store (returned stock £208) - It had an issue with 1V/Oct scaling when used with an external CV input to VCOs 1&2, via MIDI it was fine. Simple fix... Adjusted the trimmers on the back of the PCB for correct scaling, luckily, it doesn't affect the MIDI ...

It sounds like a regular DX Electric Piano with some shimmery chorus.

Re: Polyphony Infographics! Exciting!

Due to the distinct lack of comment, I'm not sure if it's gone over the heads of most casual viewers.

Being a total Nerd, I quite enjoyed reading your fine missive.

Re: Minimoog weirdness

The contact springs and bus-bars under the keybed need cleaning. The springs may also need re-aligning, but be very careful as they're fragile and it's difficult to find replacements :geek: ;)

Just make up two cables like the ones below for the correct CV and Trigger connections ;)

Re: Arturia BSP/Moog Source?

You shouldn't have any problems... Just remember to change the "Gate Out" of the BSP to "S-Trigger" (via the Midi Control Center software) and you'll be good to go.

Re: Komplete 12 announced

I believe K12's available sometime in October, but Massive X is not ready until Feb 2019.

I'll continue with K11U for the time being... not much there that's worth upgrading for, apart from Kontakt 6. I can live with that.

Is it easy (and cheap) to find that IC 404 CMOS digital chip?
IC404 is a simple CMOS CD4013 Dual Flip-Flop (14pin DIP). You can get them very easily for £0.36p/€0.40/$0.50 - Farnell, Mouser, Radio Spares etc.

Re: Korg/ARP Odyssey. LFO Envelope retrig problem.

I gave up trying to reverse engineer the SMT components to sort the problem out... I ended up selling the Keyboard version and got the Module. Everything works fine, but the Square wave pulse width still changes as the frequency is raised - Definitely not a trait of the original Oddy, but it'll do.

Re: Best AU Plugin emulation of LinnDrum?

Although it's not a plug-in, I've been using this EXS24 set for Logic for years... Even produced a few Hi-NRG/Italo releases using it - proper vinyl, none of that MP3 business :lol:

Re: Help with set portamento

I'm afraid you can't adjust the Portamento from the front panel - But you CAN send CC messages from an external MIDI controller to switch Portamento on/off and adjust the time. Send CC5 to adjust time Send CC65 to switch on/off Take a look at the MIDI implementation chart for the JV-1010 to see what...
