Re: Synths used in Land of Make Believe and Holiday

I've read that "Holiday" by Madonna used an OB-X... not sure what else... I have a wild guess that there's Minimoog on the bassline. Not familiar with the other song you mentioned.

Re: Roland JP-6 "resonance hacks", MKS-80?

Ah, thanks for that take on it. Well, the MKS is its own thing... I was just wondering what the possibilities were. Perhaps a more feasible MOD would be to get the JP-6 filter modes... Get someone to write a new OS that combines the JP-6 and MKS-80 functionalities... or just don't do anything. Anyon...

Re: Roland JP-6 "resonance hacks", MKS-80?

Hey you're the resonance hack guy aren't you. Yeah I was very curious if anyone already attempted something on the MKS-80 rev.4. I think... I don't really want my MKS-80 to be the first guinea pig ;) I thought... it'd be interesting if there was a little pcb that could be installed between the filte...

Roland JP-6 "resonance hacks", MKS-80?

I just picked up an MKS-80 rev.4 for the lowest amount I've seen in a decade (probably has something to do with all the new stuff out like the Prophet-6) I've owned an MKS-80 before, and a JP-8 at a different time. The resonant character between the two is super different, as most people already kno...

Why does the Roland Synth Plus series exist?

I kind of follow the logic of Juno-106 vs Synth Plus HS-60... speakers on board... ok. I'm more wondering what's the point of the Alpha Junos vs the Synth Plus 10? They're so similar, if not identical, so what's the point?

Re: Favorite use of the Jupiter 8

Philip: I can't tell if you're joking... but... The Jupiter-8 is great for basses, and the envelopes are super fast. Like Shaft said, it's not very saturated. If you're looking for aggressive or the largest sounding basses, mono synths are probably the way to go. The Jupiter-8 is great. It's my favo...

Re: Favorite use of the Synclavier?

^^^^ Hey what sounds are coming from the Synclavier on that song? I believe almost every sound on Construction Time Again is Synclavier... from the sampling to the FM... obvious exceptions are anything that sounds like the usual subtractive analogs...They also had a PPG Wave 2.0 which they used ext...

Re: OB-8 vs. Jupiter 6?

IMO keep the OB8 - you definitely hit the nail on the head with the "core sound" comment

Re: OB-8 vs. Jupiter 6?

i wouldnt really want either of these - but the Jup6 appeals to me slightly more these are the factors i'd be thinking of: -tone (OB8 wins) -interface (Jup6 wins) -reliability (Jup6 wins although i doubt the OB8 is too bad on this) -size / transportability (Jup6 wins) i myself like the Xpander more ...
