Re: Moog DFAM

Saw the video and not impressed at all. I hope it does a lot more than they showed, should be selling for $300 new. But I don't think I would pay $100. Actually I wouldn't, not interested.

Re: so Juno 60's are about £1000 now? what the h**l?!

about 6 years ago you could have gotten a Juno for around 300. People with too much money are to blame in my opinion. I got a Roland jx3p instead of a Juno for $160 6 years ago, and I actually got a pg200 for $180 less than a year ago. My opinion the jx3p blows the past the Juno for sure. Unless it ...

Re: Akai AX-60 Custom Firmware (Akai AX60)

my sliders are all little buggy sometimes but its hard to pinpoint when, I will take note next time I notice SO IF MESSING WITH THE ROM TO DOUBLE UP IN SPLIT MODE WE WOULD MAYBE LOOSE AN ORIGINAL FUNCTION WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO CONTAIN MORE DATA?

Re: Akai AX-60 Custom Firmware (Akai AX60)

Okay so I don't know exactly what you are capable of doing with the firmware upgrade. But would it be possible to take the split mode and stack the split on top of eachother to make a dual oscillator 3 voice synth? This synth is by far my favorite and most versatile I've owned out of a jx3p, polysix...

Re: Have synthesizers Improved in 35 years?

It's really hard to say because most of us haven't really heard what most synths are capable of doing. Every synth I own I have gotten sounds I have never heard of out of them. Most people just program the same sounds. and don't know how to program at all anyways ahahhaha there are always those old ...

Re: What synths were used on Dr. Dre Th Chronic?

Try looking up everybody he sampled. You should get to know who Bernie Worrell is. The west coast sound made by dr dre is actually the Bernie Worrell sound. When I first started making music I thought dr dre made everything himself, and it sure boosted my goals. You probly like the track funky worm ...

Re: EDIT* thoughts on AKAI 60

I love the akai ax60. If you like the demos you have heard, you should know that it is capable of a far wider arsenal of sounds than the demos online have covered. The sound is harsh compared to my other synths. The synth can sound thick and thin.because of its harshness it may not fit what you are ...

Re: DSI Announces New REV2 16-Voice Analog Poly Synth!

Just listened to the sound cloud demos and was bored right away. I know those things possess more power than they are displaying, wish they would put more sound design into their demos.

Re: building first diy vco, advice on soldering kits

I have a little bit of soldering experience but not much, just with cable building like xlrs and stuff ahhaah But I am going to experiment with the soldering iron while waiting for the VCO. I figured I could take some junk electronic i got, desolder it, then re solder it back together for practice. ...

building first diy vco, advice on soldering kits

I just ordered my first diy VCO from erica synths!! and am wondering about this soldering kit if anyone has had experience with either of them. Or if you had a better recommendation? http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-IN-1-SOLDERING-IRON-STATION-HOT-AIR-REWORK-853D-WELDER-/272029727647?hash=item3f563c3b9f:g:...

Re: Akai ax60, only 3 of 6 voices playing

It ended up being a midi problem! THANKS GUYS! Not sure if its a damaged cable or not or something else was occupying the other 3 voices, but I unplugged the cable, turned it off then on, and it works fine!!!

Re: Akai ax60, only 3 of 6 voices playing

Yes I know the options of the split mode and I know what unison mode is. But when Unison is not on, and when I am not in split mode I can only play 3 notes at once.

Akai ax60, only 3 of 6 voices playing

So when I play the keys I can only have 3 playing at once. When I hold a fourth it just cancels out the first key I am holding down. In split mode it is capable of playing 1 on the lower level of the split and 3 on the higher level of the split. Any info on what to do will help. Thanks!
