Re: What is this module or drum machine?

No, I'm sure it's some sort of Dymo device.

Re: Amazing Vintage Synthesizer Documentary!

I dig the EDP Wasp bit.

Which reminds me I should be going to the service more often. Maybe a System 55 will come from above.

Or a complete System 700, for that matter...

Re: Yamaha Releasing Updated CS-80

I'd say hooray if it weren't for 1st April... Stephen Oh sure. Instead of rolling with it, you ruined the ride. :---) :D I'm a notorious party-pooper. You should have posted it on 2nd April. Or 31st March, for that matter. I might have been a little more enthusiastic then, just a matter of bad timi...

Re: Downsizing (which synths can I sell?)

[...] How can you approve of a DX-7 and not a TX-802? […] There is no mention of a TX-802 as the candidate-to-leave in the original post, only a TX81Z -- which I referred to as tinny-sounding and not worth having. I don't approve of the DX-7 (or TX-802, for that matter) either, but they have got a ...

Re: Downsizing (which synths can I sell?)

Keep the keyboard-based instruments and sell off the 19" rackmounts. Personally, I think they are terrible-sounding stuff, and some of them are a PITA to program. Not worth the bother IMHO. I agree that a lot of them are hard to program, but what do you compare them with when you say they sound ter...

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.

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

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...
