Re: First time I've been WOWed by a synth's sound on YouTube

Great little review of the Blofeld! I've actually wanted one for a while, but always gave in to the mixed reviews. It does seem like an awesome synth, and one that will probably go down in price some more in the next couple of years. They are indeed affordable as they are right now, but maybe I can ...

Re: First time I've been WOWed by a synth's sound on YouTube

Actually, just had another watch of this Minimoog demo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WY2AeD0Tn4Y&feature=related) by AutomaticGainsay, and I now understand what was mentioned in a previous thread regarding timbre/tone coming through on YouTube videos, regardless of sound quality. No doubt I would ...

First time I've been WOWed by a synth's sound on YouTube

I don't know about you guys, but since I haven't had the pleasure of playing with most vintage synths in person (I was born in the 80s :D ), I'm pretty restricted to watching/listening to YouTube videos and other various sound sources to learn more about some of the late great synths. I came across ...

Re: Why is the 303 the de-facto Acid synth?

How do you know he replaced the 303 with Xox? Just curious, I knew he had a 303, and the guy is picky.

Re: New Moog apparently...

Hey Dustin, I really appreciate the response!

Unfortunately it's not free shipping to Canada. It never is :(. Seriously, you guys in the States have no idea how lucky you have it when it comes to prices.

Re: New Moog apparently...

I just pre-ordered mine from Novamusik. I'm curious, how come you guys are buying from third party distributers rather than ordering directly from Moog? And I guess for anyone out there (LIKE ME!!!) who wants to pre-order one ASAP, what are some of the better companies to buy from? (I'm personally ...

Re: New Moog apparently...

I'm going to get one.

I personally have never really got into the sound of Moog leads or sounds much other than bass. Therefore, my Moog Voyager does not get used for anything besides bass really. So, why do I need it?

Re: Why is the 303 the de-facto Acid synth?

I agree, it started it all, but what if the first acid tracks were made on something else. Say, a Jupiter 8 or an MS20. Both were available before the 303, and both are capable of making the acid sound. So my question is, is Acid only Acid when it comes from the 303, or can it come from other source...

Why is the 303 the de-facto Acid synth?

A bit of a loaded question here, to spur some debate. The 303 will forever be associated with the Acid sound, but it doesn't mean it's the only synth that can do it. I know I can get some pretty serious acid sounds from my Voyager, for example. It's not the same quirky filter as on the 303, but it w...
