Re: John Bowen Solaris mega synth my goodness

I own both. Apples and Oranges. The only thing they have in common is good ergonmics and lots of realtime performance controls. The Neuron is a sampler/ mangler excellent ambient machine, the Solaris is a top of the line performance VA w/ a bunch of additional sound design choices. If I had to chose...

Re: Gear Envy.

The hardest part in owning a larger studio is arranging it in a way that workflow is enhanced, rather than impeded. That huge studio posted above seems efficient in its use of space but I've found that having "walls of synths" doesn't really lend itself to playing those synths. They become decoratio...

Re: Any AKAI VX90 Owners??

One of the few pieces I'm still looking for. They're relatively uncommon here in the states and typically inexpensive. There was one seller on ebay who equated uncommon = lots of $. I'm curious to know if the VX has the DIN input for the Akai samplers. That could be a lot of fun...

Re: Buying a Jupiter 8!! Some Questions

the dcb is a retrofit; when the 14 bit 8as came out they offered an upgrade kit. The clavitron interface doesn't add to the value; most people don't even know what it is, much less have the other hardware to use it.

Re: Is It Just Me?

which is quicker and more intuitive? A sample based setup offers a lot of sonic pallette that analig can't touch but emulating analog? Not even as a punchline to a joke..

Re: Is It Just Me?

In use, of course I would. Do a filter sweep on a Jup while changing the decay level on the vca's envelope. Then increase the lfo rate modulating the VCA. Now, try to do that with your sample based perfomance.

Re: Is It Just Me?

More like you dated Mila for years before she became famous; liked her a lot....more so than the younger, more vapid actresses that have shown up since. You take her to a party and kthere are two guys who just don't seem to get it. Guy #1: Miley Cyrus is so much hotter and is a better actress to boo...

Re: Is It Just Me?

I'd like to also point out that people who've paid exhorbinant amounts for vintage synths are a very small percentage of that synths owners. Jup 8 owners who've paid more than $5K are less than 1% of Jup 8 owners. Same goes for $20k
CS80 owners. most of us purchased our gear at much lower pricing.
