Re: The classic Ensoniq sound- best choice?

Esq 1/SQ80 reminds me Emulator 2 very much, especially when I hear em both in a mix. SQ80-is a very powerful synth,but very unreliable(( I had 3 of them, two died,one still remains. BTW, I never thought that TS10/12 has anything common with the VFX. I always thought it sounded very 90s in a bad chee...

Re: Can anyone identify this acid synth? Genaside 2

Why the 303 is so expensive? So small box, and the price is just ridiculous, 2.5-3k

Re: Roland Integra-7 compared to the SC-55/88/880

And don't forget it sounds nowhere near as good as the classic 880-88.

Re: Any nice sounding Jupiter 8 demos?

I'd like to understand what it is famous for, its strong sides. If I get it, I'd like to let go my JU 60\106 stack, coz I don't like to have many synths. Mostly I use 60 as a bass synth and 106 as a pad,synth sounds synth. So I'd like to understand, can I have the same and better from the JP8? OK, ...

Re: Any nice sounding Jupiter 8 demos?

The Jupiter is is prominent on Howard Jones' Human's Lib album (I had HoJo sign an endbell on my JP-8). In fact, search on YouTube for Howard Jones' "Like To Get To Know You W...

Re: Yamaha W5/7 DSP effect processor?

Indeed the W7/W5 are very respectable workstations that slipped by under the radar a bit at the time. Like Yamaha's V50, the W series were an interim development between the SY99 and EX5. Although they were AWM only, Yamaha had its strengths in the S&S department - their tuned percussion instrument...
