Re: Uli Behringer's deeply concerning post

this is an interesting thread intersecting many hot topics in todays economy. behringer is absolutely right tho, moog could make its products cheaper, they would be betraying their legacy as a hand built, american artisan company. i toured their factory and they admitted to only a few of the product...

Re: Roland JX showdown: JX-3P vs JX-8P vs Super JX10

i own all 3. the 3P has its sound, yes more 'raw' and i wont be letting mine go anytime soon even if its on the shelf till then. the 8p and i had kind of a thing going. something uncanny happens out of those weird DACs and crusty chorus noise. the voice stacking and detuning is its own sound. dont c...

Re: How do guitar synthesizers work?

a bit incensed that i went and bought an old GK-2 and GR50 80's rack guitar synthesizer, mostly to drive midi out and use as a controller. then a day or two later, roland goes and releases this unit which doesnt need a special pickup... FFS....

Re: Korg SQ-1 MIDI sync?

So I'm eyeing up this SQ-1 BUT how the h**l would I sync this thing to MIDI clock WITHOUT using the USB socket? My sequencer is a MPC which lacks any USB connectivity so how could I do this? I notice a sync in/out, is that like a trig input? Because if it is I could then send pulses from the MPC's ...

Z wrote:It would be best to use the TR-8 as the Master Clock and run the MIDI OUT of the TR-8 into the MIDI IN of the SH-201. Then set the SH-201's clock to External MIDI sync.

Simple as that.
except that the Sh201's arp and recorder dont sync to external sources, a total pitfall im just now realizing...

Re: MicroBrute - How awesome is it?

so im oddly intruiged by the microbrute and the SQ atm. bummed that the SQ1 doesnt have midi sync. does it sound probable that i could run midi into the micro, then 'clock' out from a synced LFO squarewave into the 'sync in' of the SQ1 for a relatively midi-synced sequence? i could obviously do it f...

Re: MicroBrute - How awesome is it?

trying out the minibrute in store, it sounds really harsh, like distorted internally. idk that i can get down with that sound. but for some reason im drawn to the microbrute atm, esp the SE with the stackable patch matrix. it looks like the env is normalled to the metalizer and there is a envelope l...

Re: Do people really not like the Micromoog?

I got it working. And actually, it's very cool. Took a while to get it all scaled and in tune but I have effectively added a second oscillator to the Micromoog using the FreqBox and the CP-251 for the attenuator. I'll have to post a sound sample soon. Actually made me enjoy playing the thing for on...

Re: Do people really not like the Micromoog?

a micromoog with two oscillators So just this week, I borrowed a FreqBox and a CP-251 to try and duplicate the whole 'add a second oscillator to the micromoog' just for fun, and it hasn't been fun yet :roll: But, I like when these threads grow, because for me they are motivating enough to go try th...

Re: Do people really not like the Micromoog?

The most amazing oscillator I've ever seen is on the Arturia Minibrute. Also by far the biggest oscillator. It has just 1 VCO, but the waveforms can be mangled in various modulations within the VCO. The sawtooth can be turned into a double saw w/ adjustable "chorusing", the square has PWM, the tria...

Re: Do people really not like the Micromoog?

bah humbug, keep it and use it it accrues more 'value' that way anyways ;) perhaps moogs best kept secret? sure the on/off sustain section is a bit annoying but give it up for the variable waveshape, octave doubling, and extensive modulation options. also plays really well with 'foogers and other CV...

Re: Ultimate Cheap Cheesy but programmable digital synth

Hey hey hey... stop! The TG33 (SY22) is a cracking good synth for the money - it is really underrated and has a lot more lurking under the hood that is often realised (even the so called pre-programmed FM synth engine is actually programmable via sysex). Among many digitals I have in the studio are...

Re: External LFO to Modulate Moog Phatty Filter

CP251 rocks. that or the lfo from one of the moogerfoogers would do it too, but yeah youd likely want to attenuate with something like a CP251. also the sample and hold is cool when triggered from your moog's keys. maybe another option would be running the moog off a kenton? i got one recently to dr...
