Re: outboard reverb...which?

Since the OP is interested in pedals, I'll second the recommendation of the Behringer RV600. You get a lot of reverb options in one pedal. It's a modeling pedal, so it's not truly spring, but you do have a couple of spring emulations on it. I bought it new off eBay for around $40. The only thing it ...

Re: Cool places to buy effects

i've used http://www.themadape.com before. good prices and +1 on service. More accolades for The Mad Ape here. I usually buy new stuff from Sweetwater, but they don't carry Godlyke. I actually found out about The Mad Ape from your post, gtivr6fan. I bought a Godlyke Power-All basic kit from them. I...

Re: Name ONE favorite pedal (+more)

My favorite pedal has to be the Nova Repeater. I love modulated delays and it's Cocteaus in a box (just need some reverb) when used with my Tele.

I also have a Blue Monster Growler which is a fuzz pedal with a boost function. It's the balls of my pedal collection.

Re: I think I hate my Nord Lead 2??

Since this thread has become more about which effect processor to buy, I'm moving it over to Buyer's Guide. Btw, if you're short on funds, you could pick up an Alesis Wedge for around $50 or less. It's a tabletop unit that could actually sit on top of your Nord and is pretty easy to edit. Just an id...

Sorry. Just did not see the need to create a new thread.
No worries. I should have moved the thread over to Buyer's Guide earlier because the questions are more applicable to Buyer's Guide since it's meant to elicit opinions on the ESQ-1.

Re: Just picked up an Ensoniq ESQ-1...

The ESQ-1 was the first synth I learned to really program and sequence with. It's pretty user-friendly for a synth without knobs/sliders. As far as the sounds go, well you have one right there, correct? If you're looking for free sounds, your best bet is to join a Yahoo Group for ESQ-1 users. Those ...

Re: ESQ-1 help (somebody else)

I don't have an answer for you, but have checked out this website:

http://www.buchty.net/ensoniq/

It shows that there's also a mailing list and additional resources under the section "External Resources".

Best of luck.

Re: Wish For An Analog Synth Magazine

Ned, have tried searching out Peter Forrest's excellent The A-Z of Analogue Synthesizers? It's divided into two volumes and not only talks about the gear, but includes his ratings and who used what.

Re: Synth Suggestions

Agreed w/ Sir Nose about tweaking hardware effects. Just as an example, I was messing around with some drum loops on my sampler and had it going through an old Roland DEP-5 (can be had relatively cheaply and has knobs) and got a lot of variety just by tweaking the reverb and chorus/delay settings. I...

kzreppa, what do you currently have, in terms of effects, aside from the internal effects on your synths?

Re: What Synth(s) Would You Use for Synthetic Drums?

I've achieved decent drum sounds with both an AN1x and MS2000B (no longer own either). It's fun to use distortion on the MS2000B to add a crunch to drum sounds. Agreed about using rhythmic effects to a drum sound. I hooked my VD4000 delay pedal to my JP8K and just futzed around with one of the prese...
