Re: prophet 5 , revisions and year ?

celebutante wrote:Yes, by a large margin - the vast majority of tracks you hear Prophets on are rev 3's. People love to praddle on about how ameeezing rev 2's are and how inferior rev 3's are, but I've played both (and own a rev 3) and the difference isn't that huge.
I agree wholeheartedly.

Either the EII Pompous Choir (I think that's what it was called like) or the Emax factory choir disk.

Re: ARP Odyssey vs ARP 2600

The Korg Odyssey sounds nice but, timbrally, it has nothing to do with the original Mk. 1, with its unstable tracking, funky VCOs, and the way the 4023 responds.

Experimentation is the key.

That's what makes synthesisers such fun.

There's a lot of layering of DX7 with the analogue stuff.
I would have thought TFF were using a Yamaha DX-1 back then.

Re: Cost Effective Synth for messing around with

Even though it's ugly as h**l, the Matrixbrute can do an awful lot, and ist Sound is pretty impressive (I hate to say that as I'm trying to be biased against it but...).

Buying cheap is buying twice.

RMI Harmonic Synthesizer performance

Hi all, I demoed the RMI Harmonic Synthesizer at last week's Dinosauriertreffen in Bocholt/Germany and recorded some bits to document what the instrument is capable of sonically. More info and sounds here: https://doombientmusic.bandcamp.com/album/demoing-the-rmi-harmonic-synthesizer Tracks are free...

Re: The Other Capacitors

I've had tantalum caps failing on me more often than electrolytic ones -- ARP Omnis are full of those dreadful things which render the Omni unplayable until they have all been replaced. Electrolytic caps tend to "puke" as they say, i. e. some substance leaking out. This, or when they bulge -- then i...

Re: Top 20 Most Unreliable Vintage Synths

I've personally found my old CS-50 (and 80) was pretty solid in tuning. Contrary to the myth... same thing with my cs80 (i've heard it depends on the serial number, the later, the better) what? no one mentioned the CS80? the most unreliable synthesizer ever built?? needs a tech working on it 24 hou...

Re: What's a good price to pay for a Jupiter 8 these days?

Realistically, 5,000 to 6,000 Euro, depending on the shape it is in. That's what I'd be willing to pay, if I had the opportunity to buy one.

Some people seem to be willing to fork out twice as much, for some reason.
