Re: Roland SH-2 vs. Moog Little Phatty

this is the video that attracted me to the SH-2. Ah, the japanese guy we all love but don't understand :) This guy is so good, he can make a 20$ casio home keyboard sound like a moog modular ;) To answer your other question: I very much love the phatty sound for both bass and solo sounds. But that'...

Re: Roland SH-2 vs. Moog Little Phatty

i think lp stage i is the only phatty without noise. Well that's not entirely true. The early Tribute Edition without hardware upgrade (like mine) can't have noise as a mod source. All other phattys, and hardware upgraded Tributes can load a newer OS. However, they don't have a dedicated noise genr...

Re: Roland SH-2 vs. Moog Little Phatty

Phatty: pros.....memory, midi cons....no noise generator, lack of dedicated controls, heard on this forum that it needs to warm up for about an hour to really get it firing on all cylinders, haven't been very impressed by the youtube demos i've heard Well, no - it doesn't take an hour to work. But ...

Re: Waldorf Blofeld as a sampler

Hi there :) The sample function is very basic, that means you will have to have cut, looped, whatevered your sample on your computer before you send it to the blofeld. The transfer software is called "Spectre" and can be downloaded here: http://www.waldorfmusic.de/en/blofeld-spectre.html There's als...

That has more LFO options than JP engines.
I've read that the Gaia is sample-based.
Which one is true? :)

Re: Roland V-Synth vs Jupiter 8

Thanks I'll check em out. Yeah it sure is a 'bunch of software in a box' (with some very nice controllers stuck on). I'm trying to find what it gives me (if I'm not that into the 'elastic audio/variphrase' stuff) over modern quality VST from a sound/music POV (not just as a controller). I already h...

Re: Roland V-Synth vs Jupiter 8

Can someone post some really great MUSICAL demos from the VSynth cos I've looked and all i can find is very weak sounding VA (My SY77 sounds warmer/thicker!!!) or lots of discordant sound mangling. I'm looking for that demo that makes me say "Yes I must have a V-Synth" (...) Am not bashing it, just...

Well that really depends on your musical style. For anything squeaky industrial and general brains implosion, yeah, Waldorf.

Re: Roland V-Synth vs Jupiter 8

The Jupiter 8 has no sampler, not built in effects, no mod sequencer, no midi, no D-Beam, no time trip pad, a much more limited architecture, only one LFO as opposed to one LFO for pretty much every parameter. The V-Synth doesn't have rainbow buttons and doesn't sound like a Jupiter 8. I own a V-Sy...

Roland V-Synth vs Jupiter 8

Funny nobody started this shootout before :) I heard a lot of people saying the V-synth can nail down most Jupiter 8 - sounds. Sure, it's a totally different synth, but to me it sure sounds quite vintage-rolandish, if you keep it simple and use the VA part only. (i got some Junos here, as well, so I...

Re: Korg - original value red LED

(...) this is the reason why the context-switching menu used by Access Virus can get a little schizophrenic because it responds temporarily to the current knob that you turn just to show you the value, but then automatically flips back after a couple of seconds to the last menu you had which is kin...

Re: Moog new "Little Secret"

I have just downloaded and installed it - and love it. Toe-tall-y ;) I would instantly buy this in a box with knobs on it for 800 bucks more :D Would you? Do you think this is just a little fun thing or a real synthesizer? Has Moog gone casual? Does anybody else have the impression that it sounds li...

Re: Aggressive synths?

I have a Virus, used to have a Pro~One, and have heard what FM can do, such as the Sega Genesis game soundtrack for The Adventures of Batman and Robin. None of them sound as screamy and growly as my Polivoks: http://67.18.24.4/~murmurbe/music/demos/Pvx-Scream.mp3 MEAOW. What a great Synth, the Poli...
