All I know is I'm somewhere in first 100. And yeah, this waiting is killing me .....
It was my understanding that 100 would be built before one was shipped. So I don't think anyone included in the first run will have wait longer than anyone else.

I just had an idea. Tell me if this exists. What about an delay unit that has an LFO that controls delay time. Then you could make all sorts of wacky delay effects. I personally love tweaking the time knob so this seems really neat to me. exist? dicuss... The Yamaha E1010 discussed here has a LFO c...

You should check out Geography their first album from 82. It's my fav.

I was never a fan of their later stuff. I much preferred their earlier sound.

If anyone has any GlovePIE scripts (Wiimote to MIDI related of course), post them here. I've been watching a few Youtube vids and some of the programming involved is really cool.

Having owned a Juno 106 for a long time this sounds nothing like a 106 to my ears. The AX80 sounds way more versatile and aggressive.

Wiimote controlling your gear.

If any of you own a Wii you should seriously try this out ... I've been meaning to try this out for sometime so today I went out and bought a USB Bluetooth adapter for my PC and much to my surprise it actually discovered my Wiimote (for those who don't know this is the bluetooth game controller for ...

One thing you are going to notice about studio monitors is they are very flat sounding. Don't expect any booming bass, which we are accustomed to with regular audio speakers. You'll need a sub to take care of the low end, especially if you intend to use them as your main source of sound.

I'm not sure how far you've taken this amazing synth, but when you start looking at it less as a 303 clone and more a unique and versatile instrument I think you'll find more places for it. Flip that switch to Env instead of Gate and start modulating the h**l out of it. It really is a lot of fun and...

how the h**l do you power this thing? i don't have any interest in using batteries. are you supposed to build your own power supply? What's wrong with batteries? They need to be replaced often (unless you get yourself a few rechargeables and a recharging station). Plus I find they're unnecessarily ...
