Re: VP-330 "Human voice" synth recreation?

[...] Is it fair to assume that it's based on a very simple sound source (i.e. a sawtooth as with the strings sound) and like you say, multiple filters after that, to shape it into the end result? Exactly -- the VP-330 is based on some simple waveform like sawtooth or pulse-wave (I don't have the s...

Re: VP-330 "Human voice" synth recreation?

Multiple bandpass filters and a nice-sounding BBD chorus (preferably based around Reticon SAD1024A or Panasonic MN3005).

Re: HELP: Can you identify this FX unit?

Looks a bit home-built, the type of enclosure used -- as well as the sliders and the rotary pots -- resemble the looks of Rehberg stuff. Maybe you should turn to Volker Müller who sort of curates the remaining Stockhausen studio in Cologne? For more info, you can also refer to this thread: https://w...

Re: What is close to ARP PRO SOLOIST sounds.

Thank you everyone, decided on the ARP Odyssey... would the Yamaha HS8 work with this alone, or do i need something else to get up and running? Thanks/ A small mixing desk with some internal or external multi effects device (reverb, delay, chorus, phasing etc.) seems recommended -- you wouldn't wan...

Re: What is close to ARP PRO SOLOIST sounds.

Don't forget to buy him an original Mellotron M-400 with the fabled Eight Choir tapeset, for perfect renditions of Dancing with the moonlit knight ... or a Mk. 2 for some authentic rendition of Watcher of the Skies , for that matter. For some reasons, people seem to believe Pro Soloists or Pro-DGXs ...

It's going to the first preset that comes up in the Behringer CS-80, even before all the Blade Runner patches.
Second in line will be Born In The USA,Blade Runner will be #3.

They sold their arsenal to Uli Behringer -- the entire internet was full of this promotional stunt.

Re: Behringer 2600

[...] The original Arp seems to be going for about 10 G's or more -- even as much as over $13,000. Crazy!

I hadn't thought of that. Seems a bit extreme. Especially with noone biting.
Maybe someone will, eventually.

It's like desperately clutching at straws.

It's existential panic, more like it -- sell now before it's not worth a penny anymore.

Re: Sequential Six Trak: Sell or keep?

Sell it.

Once it breaks, it will cost more to fix it than it's worth, and in terms of sound I've seen better choices.

It was a cheap compromise back in the day -- and a failed attempt at saving Sequential's arse --, and it still shows today.

Re: Roland Strings RS-202 Synth - some keys louder than others

Hi Brett,

do these four keys grow quieter with every octave down? In that case you might want to check the dividers -- had something similiar with a Korg PE 2000 some years ago, and it turned out to be the divider ICs.

Re: What was the synth on Buddy Holly's “love is strange” ?

Norman Petty's wife is known to have played the Celesta on some tracks but that is about as much keyboards as you are likely to find in any of Buddy Holly's original work.

Anything else was added later on to embalm the mortal remains…
