Re: Akai AX-60

So I went and checked it out today, tried to stay conscious of what people said about this synth. I ended up loving the chorus sounds, and the zippering seemed pretty easily avoidable for my purposes. Some of the buttons were a little finnicky, you have to press them very fast or they want to go two...

Re: Akai AX-60

I've never gotten to play with a JX-3P but I did own an MKS-50 for a while, which I understand to be much the same as or just similar to the Alpha Juno. I'll say that I was pretty devastated when it was stolen, but when it came time to start replacing my lost setup, I didn't really want to get anoth...

Re: Akai AX-60

I've read a lot of reviews and watched videos of the S612, it seems like a great weird sampler - with some very limited abilities, but limitations breed creative answers - but is there any "consensus" on which of those three is the way to go? (Yes I realize that consensus on the subject of gear is n...

Re: Micromoog appreciation thread

The micromoog was the first synthesizer I ever played 10 years ago. They had one with 2 broken keys and a broken ribbon at the guitar store in my town, and I'd go there as often as I could just to play it until the store would ask me to leave/stop playing. I remember it being way more than I could a...

Re: Akai AX-60

Thanks for the input, for and against. I have read a everywhere that the AX60 has a much more aggressive and "wild" tone than the junos or JX's which was what put me on this path (and the polysix is wildly out of my price range), and the unison mode, PWM available on all wave forms, over-the-top fil...

Akai AX-60

I'm a little nervous about my first post, but: I've been offered an Akai AX60 for 450 dollars and I tried searching the forums for threads or information on it, but didn't find much. I'm mostly interested in making industrial and dark ambient music, some primary influences would be Steve Roach, Lust...
