Re: Korg ms10 problem...

The high note priority will make it easier to do pedalling bass lines. Since I'm a hack it helps my playing sound more consistent anyhow.

Re: Influence(s)?

ehhhhh.....making a list is kind of pointless. Sure we all have our various musical influences, but I get more influenced by life experiences(gives meaning to the sounds I create). I see it like this....If I'm living a crazy fu**ed up life(one that I have the power to change), and I do nothing to c...

I'm always on the lookout for artists to check out. Even if I look up one from each of the previous posts, I'll be busy for ages. Keep 'em coming.

Re: Korg MS10 pricing...

I would recommend checking out what they are being sold for on Kijiji, and Craigslist, or other sites that serve your area. I remember them going for $500 USD, 7 or 8 years ago but haven't seen one sell lately. I personally wouldn't pay more than $650-$700 for one without it being in great shape.

Re: Scored a Juno-60

Congratulations. If all else fails, it is worthy to note that Roland will service some of their old products. My Juno 60 had a number of strange issues that turned out to be some broken solder joints and scratchy pots. Didn't cost much at all to get it to 100%. That Switched On place looks cool thou...

Re: What was your first Moog?

Sometime in the early 90's my buddy and I walked into a music store that had a mini model D for sale. Without knowing what it was I messed around with it and had so much fun that I bought it. I sold it about 8 years ago and have since regretted it. It was always so easy to just turn it on and create...

Re: The Dewanatron Novitiate

I dig the demo tune. The laid-back acoustic drums seem to fit well with what you are doing with the synth. I would probably lose the key and end up having to hotwire the thing though.

Seconded. Although I have no experience with the V-Synth, it sounds like a good layout. Also, I'll take chicken head knobs and rocker switches over buttons any day.

Re: Your most reliable vintage synth? ;)

My MS-20 has yet to fail me. It's built solid too. I've whittled down my gear to keep things minimal and the MS-20 has never disappointed.

Re: First Purchases

I bought a Minimoog in 1997. I had never seen anything like it before and had no idea what most of the controls were.
Damn that was a fun year. I wish I had never sold that thing, given what they go for now.

Re: drum machines w/ individual outs

I usually run everything through my mixing board plus whatever I may be triggering to keep things simple. I guess the only drawback is that you are stuck with whatever panning and level choices you make at the outset.

Self repairing synth?

I don't know what I did but my MS-20 works again somehow! For a long time now I have been having a problem with the modulation generator section. I checked everything I possibly could, (thanks so much for your time and advice maschinegeist) but couldn't locate the problem. Now that I have given up a...
