Re: Name ONE favorite pedal (+more)

Send me the same clip minus the RT20 and I'll run it through the vent and send it back, then you can compare. This is a little late, but if you're looking for a fake leslie you can do better. I'd steer clear of the RT20. The distortion was horribly digital, more a guitar pedal than a keys pedal in m...

Re: Your Rig---but 20 Years Ago

I got out of it in about 82, but at the time I had a Korg Poly 61, Yamaha CP25, MS-20, MS-10, SQ10, Korg Lambda, Clavinet, Pro-one, Yamaha drum machine (I think it was an RX13?) and an upright piano I stuck thumbtacks in the hammer on to go honkytonk. The band owned the C-3 I kept the MS20 and clavi...

Re: Interesting examples of ring modulation?

Here's my Wurly and ring mod example; the first 20 seconds is clean and the rest is a few different flavors of the ring mod moogerfooger. The clavinet lends itself well to using pedals with the Moogerfooger (I like controlling mix and freq) since it typically occupies both hands. Cool coloration. I...

Re: Interesting examples of ring modulation?

The album Waka Jawaka by Frank Zappa features a bit of ring mod. I personally use the Moog ring mod (usually sans LFO) to harshen the sound of my Wurly, very expressive with CV plugged in! I prefer it at about 25 % wet for texturing, and will only raise the wet mix for FX Do you by any chance have ...

Re: Interesting examples of ring modulation?

a very funny trick with the MS20, the poor man's duophony patch. it's not only useful with ring mod, but particularly funny with it: KBD CV out -> S/H in KBD trig out -> S/H clock S/H out -> VCO2 CV in with this patch, the second osc will always play the note you played before. E.g. if you play a G...

This is a little late, but if you're looking for a fake leslie you can do better. I'd steer clear of the RT20. The distortion was horribly digital, more a guitar pedal than a keys pedal in my opinion. I got it to try and spice up an old model CX3. It was better than the horribly cheezy leslie sim in...

Re: Studio Setup Help

I'm using multiple mixers with multiple soundcards. I literally come down, push the buttons on the mixer for the keys I want to send to the soundcards, and away I go. I also have templates made up in sonar where everything's set up at approximate levels, with what effects I would normally use so I c...

Re: Studio Workhorse: the 2011 thread

Mine would be the same as usual for synths, the JX8P. The only difference is I'm usually "effecting" it in some way instead of using it direct. Lately been in a JX8P->Echoplex->old gibson skylark cranked with an E-609 hanging in front of it mood. As far as other keys go, my Hammond CV is still my go...

Re: SK50D is Ridiculous

In it's day they were the thing. However, any of the parts by their lonesome were pretty weak. The organ was pretty bad (the original Korg CX3 and the crumars beat them by far). The poly synth was weak also. The mono synth was kind of cool, but nowhere near an MS or a yamaha CS, or any number of arp...

Re: Can anyone identify that synth?

I get a kick out of these "studio Vids". I've never met an engineer yet who'd let a vocalist hold a mic on a recording!

Re: getting too caught up in tech

As for instruments, I went practically all electromechanical on my own music. I can't remember the last time I used a synth on anything I wrote for myself. It got me more into focusing on notes than signal paths. I still use my synths on other peoples music when called for, but I use what's here. I ...

Re: Woo! Picked Up A TX7! Great Little Synth...

I think the coolest use for the TX7 is midi'ing it to an analog polysynth, using the TX for percussive sounds over the analog on a more pad or organ sound, really a nice combo.

Re: synths similar to poly61?

I've gotten most of my old sounds I used on the poly 61 out of my JX8P. It seems to have the same sound to it, although of course the JX8P does a lot more, with sync and all of that. They're not interchangeable, but the JX8P will do the 61 sound pretty well. Of course you're missing the arp. I found...

Re: CASIO CZ's

I use my CZ101 live quite a bit, and have tried to work it into some studio stuff, but never ended up keeping what I recorded with it, always ended up using something else. I've found I love using mine at local blues jams, cuts through and gets real nasty. However, everybody else hates the thing and...

Re: Questions for paraphonic strings synth experts

It is possible, because to keep costs down, the lambda shares a lot inside. Because of that there's all kinds of quirks that can be useful. For instance another is set the attack as slow as possible, decay as short as possible, and put on strings and organ.It takes that useless pipe organ sound and ...
