"Can You Feel It" is a Jupiter 6.
...c**p, I can't find the interview with Larry Heard in which he talks about it.

It's either that or a Jupiter 4.

"Ethics" are a matter of personal opinion, not some objective fact. Is the guy selling these an asshole? Sounds like it. Is he Satan? Doubt it. It sounds like he's breaking the law, too bad they can't afford to go after him. f**k lawyers. All they want is money. The law is just there for show. Kill ...

Re: USB/Firewire Mixer and Computer Recording Advice?

Does anyone use the Alesis multimix mixers and have an opinion? I used to; it was decent enough for the price. Worked fine and sounded good enough. What are the advantages of Firewire over USB? Firewire is generally faster...it depends on the version in the device and your computer's ports. The Mul...

Magnetic-based recording is the biggest concern...if none of your synths have it, no problem.

More likely the converse, Sir Wiglaf; nearly everyone who reads VSE buys a synth. And that's no inconsequential number. :roll: There are 4603 people registered at VSE as of this post. We would all have to buy the same synth from the same manufacturer for them to care...and that's not going to happen.

If synth manufacturers knew or cared about how much revenue VSE indirectly brings their way, their donations alone would carry this project eternally. Many of my GAS attacks were encouraged by my readings and/or questions on VSE, and 90% of those cravings were alleviated by making a new synth purch...

Well, I don't like the new skin (I can't tell what the new posts are..the old white b/g skin had nice big orange borders around the new posts, but this silver one doesn't have anything)...but I'm glad as h**l that the forum is back.

There's no such thing as a techno or trance synth. It's all in the programming.

To be honest, looking at your setup, I personally would not use the Virus for minimal techno. h**l, the Machinedrum alone has you covered.

I think the FS1R is more than a FM synth, so it's kind of unfair in this comparison.

FM8 is much easier to use than a DX-series synth. I love it and use it all the time.

So, +1 for FM8. I would like to putz around with a FS1R one day, though, but again, as I understand it, it's more than a FM synth.

let's accept those "Ion demos" of acoustic instruments for what they are: sound samples on the internet. NOTHING more. and if you're looking to buy an Ion in order to emulate those sounds, don't bother. save yourself the disappointment. are you implying that those demos were not made using an Ion T...
