Re: The obsession for the Analog

Rant on : But why on earth, if you think VSTs are so superior do you spend time on VSE? Very good question indeed. This is excately why I stopped comming here the last time, allways feel like I have to defend why I like my Jupiter-8 insted of just being smart and use software. Us who like vintage, ...

Re: The obsession for the Analog

Now being musicians which we are foremost and not programmers (i hope), What's wrong about programmers...? :blink: The trouble for me is that music and creativity is a left-half brain activity which means that when inspiration comes I need to ride it out and bring it to life without engaging the sy...

That book and a comfy chair sounds like a good idea, most definitely analogue! :)

Re: The obsession for the Analog

consider that not all analog synths have a knob/slider per function and that exclusion doesn't somehow make them a digital synth or any less analog. Analog from the merriam-webster online dictionary: "of, relating to, or being a mechanism in which data is represented by continuously variable physic...

Re: The obsession for the Analog

Since my original post of attempting to contribute something towards this thread there has been only one decent comment and 5 or so negative responses that boils down to nothing other than pitiful hairsplitting over me offering a simile to the the term analogue. I joined this forum way before many o...

Re: The obsession for the Analog

For me analogue means less about the sound generation and more about the interface. A Korg EA1 is more approachable (and therefore analogue) than a mopho IMO. My "analogue" instruments include the piano, TR808, guitar, the electribes, kaosspads, Nord Lead 2, Vermona Drm etc. http://i.imgur.com/prtM...

Re: Daft Punk pre-human after all synths?

Not exactly, while a lot of full track remixing is going on, there's also a lot of instances of using a capellas which you'd be hard pressed to simply "rip off the album". Too Long-Steam Machine only has the vocals from Too Long iirc, and Face to Face has the one Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger li...

The main hook at the beginning sounds like a very MS-20 screaming type of sound. There is also another sound that comes in around 2:30 which sounds like a distorted 303:

I can swear I hear one on a couple of Homework tracks.
There is definitely an MS-20 on Rollin and Scratchin':

Re: Daft Punk pre-human after all synths?

After they released Discovery in 2001, they didn't start playing live again until they discovered Ableton a couple of years back, because it was just too difficult for them to integrate their tracks on Discovery into a live set using hardware. Can you imagine trying to recreate all those vocoded syn...

Re: Electribe Questions

I know this is old but I have to comment on the ESX. This will be hard for me not to come across negative about the ESX but I would be interested to hear if any others have experienced the same... I bought an ES-1 when they first came out and loved it, but there were always some things I wished it h...
