Re: Portable Midi Record and Playback device?

running on batteries would be killer. the program i use to generate midi doesn't output at MID files. so i'm stuck with midi out... that's why i was looking for a "recorder" of some sort. i don't want to have to reprogram the lines into an MMT-8, for instance. i'm looking for an MPC500 manual online...

Re: Portable Midi Record and Playback device?

A midi out is a necessity, as it will be used to control my synths in a live situation.

Portable Midi Record and Playback device?

Is there such a thing? I sometimes use my laptop to create midi sequences. I'd like to use those sequences out live without having to set up and rely on my laptop.

Re: CHINESE SYNTHS?

well, at the risk of over-generalizing, the chinese would have been more likely to imitate where the soviets, like the US at that time, would have been interested in superiority (even if they borrowed ideas). i would think a knock-off chinese synth would be more likely than a chinese polivoks.

Re: somebody here did this song

those padish sounds seemed uncharacteristic of the ms10 (even if multitracked)... i would love to find out the actual details, though...

Re: Bicycle

interesting track. it was great to have playing in the background. the meandering melody and the repetitive elements swirled around and drew me in. very pretty. movie soundtrack material.

Re: Industrial Chiptune?

1. i find it nice when people post direct links to download tracks in the listening lounge. it's easier to right-click and choose save as, rather than having to go to some unknown site while at work, and it's nicer to allow us to download it the track if we like it. we've giving you feedback, so it'...
