Re: Why having so many analog polysynths ??

Yes...Correct. I made the same discovery there is 2 years ago about a record (i don't know the name of the artist...sorry) that came out in 1974, full of polyphonics big chords/brass sounds, always thought it was Oberheim Polyphonic Synthesizers (FVS or something so) that where used, and somebody s...

Re: Why having so many analog polysynths ??

The horrible discovery I made (and have posted about SO frequently here) is that when you multitrack monosynths, you get a much more pleasing, exciting, beautiful, and functional sound than when you play most polysynths... especially those from the 80s. +1 There are many good examples out there of t...

Re: MemoryMoog Or OBXa ????

Oberheim = reliable :?: :?: :?: I don't know...It's about the same like a Prophet 5. Compared with the Roland polyphonic synths (like Jupiter 8 and 6), the japanese one are much more reliable, has better build quality. But, i still prefer the sound of the Oberheim over the Roland... The only reliabl...

Re: Vangelis "The Bounty" re-recording..?

No comparison...The original was recorded with the gear that where mentioned before (CS-80, VP-330, CP-70, etc.) and these analog and electro-mechanical instruments are adding some of the sweetness in sound. But it's also probably due to the recording technic. I presume that a Studer A800 or any kin...

Re: String Synth Battle Royale: Yamaha SK vs Roland RS vs ??

A made a little audio clip yesterday with two of my string machines.

Here it is :



Both are lovely stringers...one with a very round and full bass fundament.

Re: What was the Deepest Synth you ever bought?

Yep...my OB-X is not bad too...56 cm deep (something like 22'')

And in therm of programmability, i think that my TG77 and EX5 are enough deep. I'm happy to have the manual...

Re: Yamaha CS70M price check

Crazy prices when you think that they are full of Yamaha proprietary circuits (IG 00153 for the VCO, IG00156 for the VCF, IG00159 for the EG, IG00159 for the WP, YM615 for the keyboard assign...), in other words...the day when your CS70M has a technical problem, the only solution is to find another ...

Re: Swap SH-101 for SH-2 ??

Funky lines...the portamento is really nice on the SH-2, and the filter sounds very "liquid". For basses, i prefer the Moog...it has a little bit more "body", more fat than the SH-2.

Re: Swap SH-101 for SH-2 ??

http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/5558/houseroy01.jpg That was my set-up yesterday evening for a Nu-Jazz Session. Even with a Minimoog (in bad shape...), the SH-2 still has his place, and i was using it more than the Mini. Sounds totally different too... It's so fast to prepare a sound, modify the...

Re: Poll: What's your favorite 2-pole, -12db/oct. filter?

SEM and OB-X (with the LPF limitation...). But the sound is so full, clear and at the same time so 70's sounding. I heard Weather Report heavy weather album again last week. The sound of the EVS is pure heaven!

Re: Korg Polyphonic Ensemble P

Another solution would be to buy an Eminent 310 U...mostly the price tag is under the Solina price! But people are afraid because of the size and weight of the beast! Ok...sonicaly, it's also not exactly the solina string ensemble. But it's near. Listen to some François de Roubaix for nice exemple, ...

Re: Korg Polyphonic Ensemble P

I can't remember what I sold my Solina for... the price may still be on this forum somewhere... but as I recall it was at least $700. Wow... :!: I get mine for much less than 700$...My RS-505 Paraphonic was 250$. Directly from Japan. I would pay maximum 400$ for a Solina. As you can have a good clo...
