Ensoniq Mirage - Soundprocess OS

Okay folks - have had a couple of Mirages for a long time now, am familiar with the basics and MASOS, but have always been intrigued by the alternate Soundprocess OS which according to Syntaur: "turns the Mirage into a digital synthesizer, adds full 16-channel multi-timbral capabilities, gives each ...

Re: Arturia MiniBrute - analog monosynth

If they did a MaxiBrute with 2 VCO's, a bit longer keyboard, and a few extra features, wouldn't it start looking like the Crumar Spirit which is well sought after and sells for a loooot more than we expect this maxibrute to sell for? May I ask where you get the idea that a Crumar Spirit would come ...

Re: Yamaha SY-77 >>>>>> TX-816

I appreciate both your responses. I hadn't done enough research to know that the 77 isn't a vector model and I should've said "SY-22." I've thought of getting a TG-33 instead of any 80's FM model, but I wasn't so thrilled with the idea of putting it in vector mode and going from 32 notes to 8. That...

Re: Yamaha SY-77 >>>>>> TX-816

First, the TX-816 is 8-part multi-timbral since it has 8 TF1 modules in the chassis. It's a TX-216 with two TF1s, a TX-416 with four - you get the picture. Second, the SY-77 isn't a vector synth nor has a joystick. You're thinking of the SY-22 or SY-35 (TG-33 too, but that's a module). If it's those...

Re: Richard Pinhas East West synths

thanks. I was thinking last night that a sequencer might be called a computer. Any idea on the PPG? I was thinking it would be the Wavecomputer 360 but I see there was a 340 - no idea if that was a wavetable one like the 360 though. Yes - 340 A Prozessor, 340 B Generator and 380 Event Generator + t...

Re: Men Without Hats

Thanks for joining this thread, Stefan :) I'm sure you're right about the Prophet 5 being used on your first album because I can hear that synth throughout. Well it's definitely got the P5 thang on Safety Dance . Has to be a dual oscillator analogue, and not a double tracked thing- so not the CS60 ...

Re: Tired of Diving Presets, need help

Well, you've certainly picked one of the best synths for learning on (JU6/JU60) as they're as simple as they get in terms of layout and general functions. They're what I cut my synthesis teeth on when I was a youngster :) Once you master it, then you can easily grow into other, more complex synths. ...

Re: Men Without Hats

rest is Prophet-5 - the lead most certainly is the famous sync preset in unison mode. I didn't know the P5 could sound so nicely "harsh"! You haven't lived until you've heard the P5 in unison - especially if using oscillator sync or filter FM. The latter, when tweaked right and in unison mode, can ...

Re: Men Without Hats

IIRC, the System 100 belonged to the producer. As for the Prophet, I'm not sure how the average, fledgling New Wave band could afford it. I'm assuming they had a record company advance.

Re: Kraftwerk "Home Computer" MidiNES cover by PK!

This is actually mash-up of "Home Computer" and "It's More Fun to Compute" - kind of a hybrid. It has parts from both songs.

Re: What are your thoughts on the Casio HT-6000? (Just got o

Had one for about a week - loved what it could do despite it looking like a home accompaniment keyboard. DCO's didn't seem to go low enough for good bass patches, but IIRC you could use the ring mod to pitch things down an octave. BTW - the ring modulator really helps with creating cool patches on t...
