Re: Yamaha An1x vs Korg R3 for pads

The Wavestation filters are non-resonant (in the software version they are resonant). Filter sweeping isn't really the high point of the WS :? Filter cutoff can be mapped to mod wheel or aftertouch for real time control. Thank you. The resonant filter is not so necessary for me as cutoff. So I've d...

Re: Yamaha An1x vs Korg R3 for pads

You might think about a Korg WaveStation for massive, evolving pads. Woof. Oh, thank you! One man nearby can sell wavestation ws1 to me for only 220$. I think it's a good deal. But.. I heard that software version is good enough, because Korg engeneers made it, and also I don't know is it possible t...

Yamaha An1x vs Korg R3 for pads

Hello, guys! I'm sorry if there is a similar topic on this forum, but I couldn't find something close, where these two are in a comparison. So, I decided to write here in the hope of your help. I want a synth, that can do really beautiful pads - massive, rich and lush; atmospheric and evolving. I kn...

Re: Jp-8000 vs Blofeld vs An1x vs Elka EK-22

Че это в России блять нет форумов о синтах? Да полно. На Молине бы мог создать тему, мы б тебе набросали ответов)) Anyways,get the ANx1, these are ridiculously cheap for what they are. Во-первых, я не знаю, что такое "Молин" или как там, а во-вторых я не так давно в этой теме, потому что я гитарист...

Re: Jp-8000 vs Blofeld vs An1x vs Elka EK-22

Ah OK, I understand. I personally think it's a good idea to have both analog and digital synths (and even hybrids. I like having all 3 different kinds, it makes for a versatile setup with many different sounds), but I can see why you'd feel that way. And yeah, shipping costs can be a pain in the a*...

Re: Jp-8000 vs Blofeld vs An1x vs Elka EK-22

All of them would be good choices, I think. I say just get what has the right combination of specs/features, editing, and sound for you Thank you for the detailed answer! I'd like to say, that now I'm totally fed up with digital synths, like yamaha dx-7 (which is a beautiful sounding synth, however...

Re: Jp-8000 vs Blofeld vs An1x vs Elka EK-22

In this respect, the AN1x and Blofeld are superior since they have real knobs. Dear meatballfulton! Thank you for the answer. And I have an idea to use EK-22 with Korg Kaoss Pad 2 to control cutoff easy and in a real time, because it has some nice low-pass and high-pass filters. May be it will not ...

Re: Jp-8000 vs Blofeld vs An1x vs Elka EK-22

Matrix6: Very nice sounding synth. The CEM chips are cool as well. Unfortunately, editing it is not very fun at all. You can push button arrows for data entry. The synth is very deep as well. Incredible amount of weird features you don't find on other synths of the 80s. I never liked the Oberheim p...

Jp-8000 vs Blofeld vs An1x vs Elka EK-22

Hello, comrades! I'm from Russia and there are not a lot of professional forums about synths, and, unfortunately, the culture of sound design here is at the very beginning nowadays, as distinct from the Occident and Japan with it's modern technologies, but I believe, that someday it will reach almos...
