Re: Is it just me, or is the 707 everywhere these days?

The 707 is my favorite, kind of like my drum set. I use it for most songs at this point.

Virus TI uhhhhgg

Dang this thing has been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I like the sound a lot but it is so frustrating. I finally gave up on Ti mode since it didn't work half the time and personally I think it sounds better out of the spif output anyway. I am running it via USB MIDI and it keeps losing the conne...

Re: Ableton Push 2

Everything Ableton is too expensive. I'm considering switching to Bitwig. which is a bit like saying "Everything Apple is too expensive. I'm considering switching to Linux/Android." ...which is alright for some, but nothing I'd consider doing. it's cliche and there are exceptions but often one gets...

should I get a prophet 6?

I like what I'm seeing and hearing with this keyboard. I need another keyboard like a hole in the head but I kind of want it anyway lol. I don't have a lot of room left but I was thinking of replacing my 49 key Arturia keylab with the prophet 6. I don't care much for the feel of the keys on the keyl...

NAVE VST anyone tried it?

I really like the iPad app but the VST is a lot more expensive which is fine but it would be nice to demo it or even hear some examples. I looked around on WAldorf's website and didn't see anything about it. I had problems getting the PPG plug in to work and it was never solved so I'd like to make s...

Re: Synth to Complement Sub 37

I'd go for something like a Dave Smith Prophet 12. To me that would give you a more well rounded pallet of sounds. You've already got a synth that does good bass and those type sounds. It seems dumb to get another mono synth when you are looking to expand your sound pallet. I'd get something way dif...

Re: Looking for a Synth..(Industrial/

I agree that what you need is a sampler. Personally I'd just get a controller and a copy of Ableton Live 9. It's far more advanced and most importantly quick to use compared to any old school akai or whatever type hardware sampler and you can tweak to your hearts desire and save quick and easy. I lo...

Re: Arturia major problems anyone else?

OS 10.9.1 I'm not sure what Firewall, I haven't done anything to change that other than what comes standard on a Mac. I have one iMac machine I use and one laptop machine I use. One iMac is in my living room and is pretty much always on and the studio laptop is usually always on too. I don't know if...

Re: Arturia major problems anyone else?

I was thinking maybe it had to do with it being on two machines but I cleared that with them when I made the purchase and they said no problem. It's really hard to get a specific on it other than to say randomly that it will just say thank you for using demo mode is over on an occasion. Many times i...

Arturia major problems anyone else?

I have the Arturia collection I paid for it downloaded it to my desktop and laptop. I keep getting issues saying that it's running in demo mode, also doing weird glitchy stuff, I had to close live 9 down last time I tried to use it. I don't have issues like this with any other products. Just curious...

Re: NAMM 2015: Elektron Overbridge Progess

I have hung on to my Analog 4 just for this reason. This looks completely awesome to me and if it works good I would probably immediately be on board for getting all the Elektron Boxes. This is the future if they can get it to work and it sounds great. I like the sound of the Elektron stuff I just c...

Re: Saying it's live with a laptop next ....

I don't think it's a problem to have the laptop on stage but when they are literally up there doing nothing and acting like every time a bleep or sweep happens they are making happen is bullcrap. I watched Kiasmos do a live set and they were up really close on them with a camera. They had a Minibrut...

Re: arturia collection V keeps saying demo is over

I think you have to re-authorize it every time you switch PCs, not sure Yes I was wondering if it was something like this. It might be that I have my studio computer on and house computer on at the same time and that is causing the issue. I usually don't shut down Live 9 on either computer. My hous...

arturia collection V keeps saying demo is over

I bought the collection V and it randomly is stopping and saying demo is over. I bought it and authorized it just like they said and randomly it will do this. I had it do it many times for a period with the Jupiter 8 plug, enough that I was not using it much because it was a hassle having to restart...

Re: Stewart Copeland's Fairlight CMIs For Sale.

Holy c**p that would be a heck of a leap of faith buying that. Says that they can't confirm that it even works.
