Re: DrumBrute

Good news is that it does NOT reset the sequencer once you release the effect buttons.
My fears are not an issue.
So far, no sound is CRAZY, but it does sound good.

Re: ARTURIA MICROBRUTE

I got this yesterday...and I am utterly confused..... Nothing I program seems to be working as it should. I read the SOS review and it seems the standard architecture has been ...taken to liberty so the knob positions are very exacting...I need to break out the manual and learn the system Arturia ha...

Re: Novation Ultranova is surprisingly cool

Lol. I went to a store with a mini-recorder and recorded a bunch of sounds out of it.
I can agree, it's a nice piece.

Re: DrumBrute

You can make stiff beats if you like, I think all the off-beat stuff was to demonstrate that each drum sound can have its own clock. It's whenever they use the seq effects and 'stutter' or repeat sections of the sequence. When they release the effect, the drums have lost their place. So it seems in...

Re: DrumBrute

Nice. Mine should arrive tomorrow. Yeah, it's strange that I didn't notice the 1/8 outs for the individual parts until this week. Mind you, I've watched the review videos and don't know how I missed that. So It'll be funny to re-hook everything rack-wise back up to run this through it. The last thin...

Re: Which Theremin?

The Theremini looks like the winner.
Thanks for all your help.

Which Theremin?

Looking to buy (another musical instrument) a Theremin. - it's all about those spooky sounds and sliding pitches. I was going to do a synth shootout between the moog Theremini or the Moog wooden Theremin. There's an obvious price jump to consider. BUT! I did some googling (After reading the reviews ...

Re: Make music with the millennium falcon

Wow. I have an old alesis Air FX that used to do those same duties. I wish there was a soundloud or something, but looking at the manual, it's got a ton of drum sounds. I think like 110 kicks....and that for snares and hats. How they possibly fail with it jammed and it's got PCM elements and music t...

Make music with the millennium falcon

Apparently Casio made a Millennium Falcon- looking drum machine/groovebox. http://d3qk4yk8nq0n55.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/casio-xw-pd1-trackformer-photo.jpg and.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ui_nKgw9UdA and Sarah gets down too..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWkwxniOdBw

Re: Quantum String Theory..ambient.funk...I think.

Thank you sir! It's a Line 6 HD500. https://rowbinet.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/line6_pod-hd-500_001.jpg I did nothing special besides tweak some of the extra presets (I think it was a holiday bundle from when it first came out). I used several different 'tones' per song and some are layered. Mixin...

Quantum String Theory..ambient.funk...I think.

Official Notes say: Quantum String Theory Fallout Shelter pin points and plucks strings to interact and gravitate ...

Re: Which synth do you think has the nicest knobs ?

It's not the knob quality- If I remember, it had a covered-in-rubber feel that was pleasing. I'm speaking about many knobs that look so uniform, I'd have to read that little text printing to see what each does. I guess that's not a bad thing, I just don't like too much uniformity in the surface. EMS...

Re: Which synth do you think has the nicest knobs ?

I had the same JD problem....and had the keybed replaced.
And yep, glue dripped down on some other synth.

Moog does use some of the best POTs. The turn tension feels analoggy. lol.
But we should make a pet peeves list too.


I hate anything without an On/Off button/switch.

Bored post of the day... Well, I suggest you/we post a picture- cause my google search found a synth with faders/sliders. Or maybe that number could go to several synths? I dunno. http://www.sequencer.de/pix/yamaha/CS70M.jpg And also, what makes a good....POTS....thing to turn and edit settings for...

I say you create an overall description of the theme. Vague enough for wiggle room and in SPIRIT you remove all the artists/musicians/producers who need their hand held with a million questions of...
