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.

Re: Help me recognize a synth

The keyboard on top of the Rhodes appears to be a Solina string ensemble. The other one, I think, is a Yamaha CS-60 polyphonic synthesizer. Could also be a CS50 -- the distinguishing feature (the ribbon controller) is not clearly visible, and neither is the flap with the programmer hidden behind. S...

Something of Italian manufacture, most probably.

Re: Question about hooking up two Arp AXXE synths

Wow, so the new KARP copies the exact same circuit(s) that's in the Oddy/Axxe? [...] That's what they claim to be doing -- I had a feeling they were copying the VCO design of the Mk. III (because of its stability) and combined it with various VCF types from ARP's history (for tonal flexibility). Co...

Re: Question about hooking up two Arp AXXE synths

You could also go for something like a Roland MPU-101 and control the synths by using CV/Gate/Trigger and make them sort of duophonic this way. Bad thing is, the MPU is almost as expensive as an Axxe itself. Filters have a tendency to go bad on ARP synthesisers but it is a matter of half an hour to ...

Re: Calling on all Yamaha SY-1 Owners...can't get certain sound.

[...] I'm pretty certain it's all SY-1 too by looking at period pictures. The synth seems to be played through a Leslie speaker? Maybe even a fuzz Just what I thought -- using fuzz, tape delay, reverb, and Leslie can alter a sound significantly. And since the SY-1 is all-analogue, there might be so...

Re: MXR 185 Drum Machine Sync Information

I think the KMS-30 needs a pre-recorded tape sync signal that it can lock unto when playing back (unless you have got a master device that drives the DIN Sync inputs so that you can tap the clock pulse from the DIN Sync jack). Perhaps there is a way to generate a clock pulse as an audio track in you...

Re: PolySix worth buying?

If you are pondering save investments, you should not go for vintage synthesisers -- the market fluctuates all the time (popular today, discarded tomorrow), and there is always something about to break. If I were you, I'd rather go for some Krügerrand or solid DAX-noted stocks and bonds. A Polysix m...
