Re: Which synthesizer(s) do you regret getting or selling

Regretted Buying.... Roland MC-202 I bought this thing thinking it would be like a keyboard-less SH-101, which is for the most part true. When I got to the stage of pitch bending, portamento and the like though I could not overcome the CPU-controlled beast within. Yes, I know there are kits- but I ...

Re: What is the Oldest Piece of Gear in Your Studio?

cbjlietuva, that Odyssey needs to see an orthodontist. :) indeed! The whole keyboard's bushings need to be replaced- some of the broken/dried/cracked were causing the keys to stick. @Micke Your word is final in things synth. I know you hear this a lot, but your synth knowledge is astounding. Thanks!

Re: What is the Oldest Piece of Gear in Your Studio?

This little thing wandered into my studio... http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2467/3615436459_68fa6d5ea6_b.jpg as soon as I sell my YC-45d i'll actually own it. it needs some TLC, but I welcome a challenge. Judging by the livery, the lack of CV/Gate ports, this is a late MK I Model 2800. serial 282984...

Re: Voice Stealing

But the Ion unison sounds totally weak and washy compared to the power of the A6 unison. I have compared many times, with the same amount of voices. There is just no competition for VCO unison. Dunno why. On the Ion I get a kind of mushy-like sound, but on A6 it turns nasty and gritty and growly on...

Re: Voice Stealing

If I remember correctly, on the A6 in unison you can actually choose how many voices will sound. Useful incase you want a unison sound but 16 oscillators might be a bit overkill. Also great so that you can have a four oscillators in unison and still play four notes at a time, or something like that...

My Juno 6 does the same thing, and it annoys me to no end. I haven't made a concerted effort to nail it down, but based on my experience i would speculate it has to do with 1) what type of amp, mixer, or interface you are using it with and 2) the output level [the switch on the back] of the synth. a...

As far as using an external controller to 'edit' patch data... I have firsthand experience, and the 6R will freeze, and (on my model anyway) requires you to 'force-feed' patch data back into it. I was using my SQ80 as a controller, and i mistakingly left it in keys/controllers/patchedit mode- i go t...

I thought an AX-60 was VCO, no?
it is- it's just a CEM chip, an IC configuration, similar to the VCOs found in the Prophet 5... no clock, just voltage.

is this a custom rack mounted deal you've got going or is this module in, say, a Doepfer bus powered rack? if so you need to get a power adapter that changes both shape and voltage+amperage from ASys's format to doepfer's they're relatively inexpensive, about 25 USD from analogue haven. http://www.a...

RFM- Read the "damn" manual :) I like the CS's portamento more than the Kenton's That's why the mark 2 has more portamento options- constant time, constant rate etc. I like the mark 1 constant time more than the CS's. maybe you should upgrade to mark 2? i might... do they still offer the firmware u...

Another vote for Kenton. I love my Pro2000 for my sequencing purposes, so the proSolo should be great. Personally i'm not a fan of the CS15's circuit design which overrides the the portamento when you plug into the CV jacks for each VCO, mainly because I like the CS's portamento more than the Kenton...
