Re: Yamaha CS-80 for sale

The factory patches seem to work -- if you want to hear any effect when adjusting the sliders in the upper half, the selector switches need to be set to Panel mode. Setting the Balance lever to centre position between I and II will make both channels audible -- this way you can find out whether any ...

Re: Yamaha CS-80 for sale

Also would it hurt the value if I took the stand to be sandblasted and then redo the chrome plating? Would that even work? Unless it's not crumbling with rust, or the chrome peeling off, I would leave it the way it is. Some people even ask silly prices for the stand alone (have I mentioned the peda...

Re: Yamaha CS-80 for sale

Also what is the stand made of? Is it chrome? I would like to polish that up. Also what should I use to clean the exterior of the cs-80? It's made from welded steel tubing that was chrome-plated -- it's prone to pimples growing underneath the chrome coating. Nevr-Dull should work fine for starters....

Re: Yamaha CS-80 for sale

20k is quite a brave price, honestly -- just from looking at the environment it was stored in (and what the other instruments look like) I feel a wee bit terrified. Since I have no clue who that expert was -- and what exactly makes him an expert -- I'm a bit cautious about his verdict, too. CS80s ar...

Re: How can I produce this Minimoog special sound effect?

A friend of mine used a Boss GT-8 for many years, and if it has to be a synth... there is more choice out there than ever. It should be easy to pick some stuff you like, be it Moog, be it ARP, be it Behringer, be it... whatever.

Re: How can I produce this Minimoog special sound effect?

[…] Is it possible to produce this sound using a synthesizer, passing through an Electric Mistress or MXR 117 box? (+ overdrive module + stereo processor, if not included all in one, I guess…) […] Of course it is, and it does not necessarily have to be a Minimoog. Finding a fuzzbox or an overdrive ...

Yup, flanger. It sounds like an old EHX Electric Mistress
MXR 117 Flanger would have been my guess -- sounds too fierce for an Electric Mistress IMO.

Re: Synth Defects - Ticking Time Bombs

[…] It makes me wonder how many other Yamaha synthesizers of the day have custom chips in them that are getting near impossible to find without a donor unit. Essentially every Yamaha product of that era -- CS polyphonics are full of those dreaded things, and I suppose this is the reason why the cou...

Re: Unfinished album by Jarre?

If it was Jarre, it was unfinished for a very good reason.

But it is not Jarre, but still, it should remain unfinished and unreleased -- it is even more dreadful than anything he has come up with in the past 20 years, and boy, has there been quite some dreadful stuff among it.

Re: my music on Bandcamp (['ramp] and Parsick)

Last entry dates back to April this year -- that's quite some time. At least, I can't be blamed of churning out albums like Ford churns out cars, I suppose… I have made a new digital download-only album available through ['ramp]'s and Parsick's Bandcamp site: https://doombientmusic.bandcamp.com/albu...

That would be the SDX, I suppose. That futuristic-looking contraption with the even more futuristic-looking trolley.
