Re: The sound of the end of an RS-09

to me it sounds like a cold solder or broken audio cable inside that is intermittent. Check the volume knob,does it do this if you turn the knob?

Re: Can anyone help me recreate this saw?

Actually absolutely not poly800, this is a typical Korg DW6000/8000 /slash PPG formant digital sound, you could also have something similar in an access virus or Novation Ks synth. As far as i can hear it could also be a FM synth sound. Poly 800 sound completely different , you can hear the stacked ...

Re: Tiracon 6V

No unfortunately it does not sound great and it has been voted worst synth due to it's annoying limitations that i will talk about later.

Re: Jupiter 6 Vs Proph 08

Definitely go with the Jupiter, The Prophet 8 was the worst synth after the Evolver that i ever got and i got many synths in the past.

It has a very slim sound and is very uninspiring.
