I agree that the V-synth is not a replacement for a JP8 at all. Not even close. But, The V-synth is an incredible synth. I disagree about the VA part being c**p (unless not c**p means analog). I don't think it sounds analog though. It sounds like a v synth and it makes some really mangled sounds. Ho...

good point. I bet Al doesn't know what he used other than heroin and some guitars. I have some old magazines and stuff I can look through to see if I can find anything out....no promises though.

odd / noisy samplers

recently I have decided to get back into sampling (hardware only). I have a vsynth so I know I can make plaenty of strange and noisy stuff with it. now, I have two interests. first, a cheap (under $200) sampler that may be interesting. the EMU trans multilpication function sounds fun. it looks like ...

that is so true. My first one died less than 5 minutes after getting it. After the regulator repair it was fine. They are risky.

it's very easy to do the regulator fix. You will need to get a different "wall wart" power supply. Cheap and easy. If the price is right they're great. you can do a lot with the sound. They really don't soud like anything else. My point being, if you got it and replaced the regulator and wall wart, ...

it sounds excellent. Its not the most convincing analogue emulation I've heard I think this is a good point. Same for a lot of VA synths. So it doesn't sound like a vintage analog. so what, it sounds great. It seems like a lot of reasonable sounding stuff gets beat up on beacuse it's sound isn't de...

I think it's pretty nice. It's really related to the V-synth synth section as I recall. I've played with one and think it's really worth while. Sure if you've got a mini, a jupiter, and a big pile of vintage analogs, you probably don't need it. And, it probably doesn't compare. But, that doesn't mea...

not bad. I listened through my crappy laptop speakers so I can't really comment on the mix. I liked it better than your other tracks. Nothing against your other tracks, it was just more up my alley. Ever check out any of the Ant Zen / Hands / Invasion Wreck Chords stuff? you'd probably like at least...

...Same thing with a SAD bucket-brigade delay line used for chorus (Juno-60) or delay (MF-104z), no emulation is quite there yet. that is true. I keep trying to find a digital that is as good as the analog, but can't... Analog and digital sounds are essential to my music. I couldn't do it with out ...

If I understood you right. you're not doing anything wrong. You're recording each drum part to it's own track, right? Hats on one track, kick on another, snare on anotther and so on? You'll want to record them as stated in the manuals. You want a good hot signal for each one (no clipping though). Af...

the blue and black have identical pads. build quality varies and JS seems to have gotten a good one along with many other people.

your equipment is heavier than you think. Even if you think it's heavy. Build the shelf to be stronger than you think you need it to be.. You don't want to come home one day to find all your stuff piled on the ground.

Sorry, no specific woodworking tips....

its software is considered inferior relative to that of the 1000....anyone? that's somewhat true, but it's still able to do a lot of the same. I think it may depend on expansions too. Although I've never used it. the JJOS looks like it really expands the 1000. I like the 500 except for the screen s...

I think the 2000xl is the best value. I use a 2500 and I do love it, but I think you can get much of the functionality out of the 2000xl for a lot less money. The 1000's pads are less sensative than the others. Also, you may need to replace them in a year or so, even if you don't abuse them. That sa...
