Re: 1st Synthesizer advice, am I looking at the right synths?

Moog & Sequential make some really fine instruments. They can be pricey, too! Most of what I buy is used, vintage. So, a lot of my research is in headphones on youtube. What you really don't get from this may be how its going to fit into your workflow. Sometimes, the videos are so few that you don't...

Re: Is the double keyboard stand good or not?

I like the X style stand. I also have the Ultimate style stand. Two important things: 1. it's a quality stand. 2. you can adjust height. you don't want it crashing down with your valuable gear on it. & you need to be able to adjust it for comfort, whether standing or sitting.

Just picked up a K2000rs

What a learning curve! I suppose that's what you get for such a powerful machine. I'm digging in, trying to go through everything methodically. I'm starting to wrap my head around it. I've done a little sampling & some program tweaking. It's an amazing sounding machine. I'm watching instructional Vi...

Re: EPS 16+ how do I make a single key transpose to the entire keyboard

It's a great machine! I understand the fear. I use my old machines quite a bit. Always fear the that one time I'll it the switch & they'll just not work. Fortunately they are rising in value. The cost of repair is not wasted money. That's the Glass Half Full point of view :lol:

Re: EPS 16+ how do I make a single key transpose to the entire keyboard

If I read you right, I'd delete the other sounds in the patch. Reset the keyboard range & save it under a different name. Then yo'll have the full keyboard as that instrument & be able to call it up without destroying the original patch.

Re: How to sample drums?

One of my projects is a punk band. The Drummer & Bass Player/Singer sent me a rehearsal recording. you know, "set your phone on the floor & just let it roll" kind of recording. The drums were completely garbage, distorted. The rest of it was slightly better. I had fun with it, in my old samplers. Ad...

I hadn't thought of that. Seems a bit extreme. Especially with noone biting.

Re: The 2600

I don't know what's going on lately. People have been listing stuff at incredibly high prices. Maybe its the solitary time at home??? I've been looking to buy some accessories for my equipment. In a couple instances people have been listing things for twice the price, sometimes way more, than they w...

Re: New Sequential Prophet-5 Rev. 4

Super Cool! Being that he said he'd never do it, maybe this leads the way for a reboot of the Prophet VS. That would light the world on fire!

Re: Hardware or Software?

Making great music comes from inspiration. Many people find that in the box. Some don't. You really have to go with what inspires you. The M3 is a pretty awesome machine. I have really tight quarters. I still prefer to fire up the old keyboards & wrestle with their character. If you haven't worked i...
