Re: New Korgs

[Spontaneous VSEF appreciation rant: This forum has actually been immensely helpful to me over the past year. This place is at its best when members answer technical questions for noobs like me...and they have been very helpful. Twenty years ago, it would have been a different story. There are a lo...

Re: Arturia MiniBrute - analog monosynth

The aftertouch function reacts a little bit to harsh for the moment. When you press a key a little bit too strong, the aftertouch reach the maximum too fast. The function is much more softer and smoother on a SH2000, for example. But Yves Usson told me that it will be possible to edit the aftertouch...

Re: Your Rig---but 20 Years Ago

In 1992, i had only 2 keyboards:

Fender Rhodes mk1a
Roland D-50

A no picture from then.

Today, i still have the stage piano, but i changed the D-50 for a D-550...and bought a lot of other vintage machines !

Re: DSI Prophet '08 vs. Oberheim OB-8

I know...i was a caustic, when i said a little bit. I know, for the 8 Voices version (Omega8), you pay twice as much as the P08. That's the reallity. Another question could be, is it worth to spend twice the money only for the sound of the Omega8 ? IMHO, yes. For me, it's really the ultimate analog ...

Re: DSI Prophet '08 vs. Oberheim OB-8

If you want to recover that old VCO polyphonic drift with a modern synthesizer, the Prophet 08 is not the first choice...Give a look to Studio Electronics Omega 8/Code. The VCO's are allmost drifting like in the old polyphonic boards from the 80's. But i also know that the price is not the same...a ...

Re: Roland HS-60 VS. Korg DW-8000

I have both...Roland Juno-60 in my home studio, and Korg DW-8000 in my "live set-up". Both are really cool 80's sounding synth. The Roland Juno-60 has a very easy and intuitive user interface, it's really a pleasure to make sound with this synth. Although, it's a little bit limited, and the sound is...

Re: Korg Kronos vs Jupiter 80 (Roland)

A function that was already available in the 90's on the Roland E Series (Keyboard arranger). Cool, but...sounds very "typical" - like these automatic arranger functions.

Re: What was your first Moog?

My first Moog was also a Prodigy, and still have it today ! Very happy with this little Moog. The day i find a Minimoog, i will possibly buy it too...but for the moment, i'm happy with my MosLab modular, a very good clone of the Moog Modular.

Re: Vintage digital reverb suggestions? hardware/plugins?

I have an old Dynacord DRP 16...price paid: about 20$, and perfectly working. Wonderful 80's reverb, can be a little bit metallic on small room setings, but ok on bigger room seting. And very easy to use.

Re: Recording Rhodes

I'm recording my Stage Piano directly from the integrated Suitcase Preamp (Vintagevibe). So i have an onboard EQ, a wonderful LDR Tremolo (stereo). You can choose between the classic "Peterson" Preamp Style and a F.E.T preamp sound, a little bit "warmer". Result, a lot of punch, no hiss, no noise, r...

Re: audio interface and analog mixers

For multitrack recording, you better take an analog mixer with direct outs. Soundcraft FX-16 is an example of mixer that have 16 direct outs. So, if you have an audio interface with 16 inputs, you can record 16 channel at the same time. Another solution would be to buy the new Mackie Onyx 1640i with...

Re: which delay?

In the analog domain, i love my Maxon AD200, a delay rack from the early 80's. It's a BBD delay, that adds a very warm and delicate colour to the sound. And yes...the Space Echo is also very cool sounding. In the digital domain, don't look further than Eventide. Time Factor or Eclipse are absolutely...
