Re: Programmable Synth Modules

Technically, my K1m is a Rompler, I imagine.

Re: Programmable Synth Modules

Ohh, wonderful. Thanks!!

Also, I learnt a new word today - Rompler.
I don't think I like this word.

Programmable Synth Modules

I'm on the hunt for more advice, if you'd be so kind: I'm on the lookout for another synth module or two, but would prefer one I can program myself, rather than just fiddle with presets. That is systems that I can create an Init_Voice , and build a sound from the ground-up, such as DX, CZ, or VZ ser...

Freeware Multitrack Recorders

Any recommendations for the following would be welcome: I am looking for a utility (preferably freeware) that I can record multiple seperate audio onto, and then enables me to mixdown, change relative volume, etc. I basically am looking for something like Audacity, but with the ability to generate a...

Re: Best (or least worst) vintage samplers

Thanks for all your feedback ! I noticed the reference to the Casio SK5, which amused me as the only sampler I ever had was the good old SK1. I never used it in my later stuff as it was reasonably limited, even using the line input. I would go probably head more for the FZ-10M rather than the FZ1, a...

Best (or least worst) vintage samplers

In an attempt to get some sampling hardware, I would welcome suggestions for sample recording/playback kit that 1) is NOT PC-based 2) of 80s-90s vintage 3) does not require another mortgage... The two ranges I remember were the Casio FZs, and the Akai S1000s, et-all. Are either of these worth the ef...

Re: First mixer advice

Apologies. Not really an answer for today's tech, but a bit of a blast from the past, so here goes... This bad boy was bought at the end of the 80s, and is still used by me for when I convert vinyl LPs to mp3. It's simple, has 'proper' VU meters, and RCA and phono inputs. https://s3-us-west-2.amazon...

Re: Literature on synths/electronic music

Bought the following book way back in the 90s when I was doing a lot of patch programming on my DX7s. It's quite a technical read, with much emphasis on the theory of FM sound generation, but some may find it useful. To be honest, I'm suprised it's still available new, that is, if you have about £11...

Re: Universal Freeware Midi-SysEx Utility

- Kawai Q-80 - Yamaha REX-50 1) Small point, the Q-80 doesn't transmit its own data as sysex... 2) The REX-50 has no sysex support... 1) This is not really suprising. When I actually used my equipment in anger, I did use the Q-80 as the recipient and library for SysEx patch dumps. I just included i...

Universal Freeware Midi-SysEx Utility

The title says it all really. I have recently regained possession of my old synths, drum machines and sequencer, but I also now possess a rather porky PC, something I certainly did not possess back in the late 80s to early 90s. I would like to have a utility that accepts SysEx patch / performance du...

Re: Back to the 90s

Thanks hun.xxx

Hopefully, now I've got the remaining kit of mine back, I may redo some other stuff that I didn't consider good enough back then.
After all, I have PC recording / editing now. Yay for progress !!
