Re: Synthesizers for linux

I use Bristol. Nice (low res) renderings of classic synths. But your best option will be the vast collection of (free) VST's that were written for Windows. I use the DAW called LMMS for that (it's in the standard repo's). There's also Ardour, but installing it and learning how to use a Windows VST i...

Re: Songs Using The Alesis HR-16 Drum Machine

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cDLZqe735k A drum computer is clearly used in this "song". However the video shows a drummer, ha ha. P.S. Very curious to hear which commercial songs have the SR-16 on them because that drum computer is still for sale and very cheap! As opposed to the (somewhat limi...

The Sequential Prophet-6.
Might I say that I'm pretty jealous right now? Ha ha. ;) Other than a Minimoog, boy what I wouldn't do for a Prophet. Iconic instrument, cool looking, awesome sounding, versatile and portable enough. Did I mention it also looks ├╝ber cool?

Re: Synths used on Bar Kays songs

I like The early Bar Kays very much (Isaac Hayes etc.), but their 80's Disco stuff... Not so much I'm afraid. Anyway, I believe that they had a Minimoog. They must have had one because it was almost the only "usable" and "affordable" synth in the early seventies.I think they still used the Minimoog ...

Re: Question about this Floyd synth

Same thing goes for "VCS-3 Synthi A" -- two entirely different machines. A VCS-3 is no Synthi A, a Synthi A is no VCS-3, A Synthi AA is no Synthi AKS Pink Floyd could have fooled me on that. They credit using a VCS3 in the credits of "Dark Side of the Moon", however the sequence on 'On the run' fro...

Re: Synths and You (the collection of opinions)

What a nice topic for my first post! 1) The synth that made you want to play music: VCS3 (on Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon' - "On the run"). 2) Your first synth: Virtual: Minimoog, physical: Korg Monotron Delay (well, I don't count that a real synth), Korg Volca Keys. 3) The synth that has sur...
