Someday, I'll put my grandfather's name on my Minimoog Voyager, since most of what I paid for it came to me after he left us.

Eh, if there's no filter I'd say you're nothing but out $50. Plus, it's not even blue . Oh well...maybe you'll have a better find later in the week. Holy s**t, am I joking. That find is second only to Tutenkhamen (with him holding an un-opened, cold beer). :o Right! And, he can always get ahold of ...

If I hadn't read the post, I'd ask you if it was an E-Mu you got your hands on. It sorta looks like one, at first glance. Congratulations.

Made any music with it, as of yet?

And, did you ask about that Nine Inch Nails "decal" hat I spotted down by the pedals?

Why should it have to be able to run on batteries? Do you wish to play it while you're driving? :lol: That being said, can't the Yamaha TX816 be programmed so that each 16-voice section can produce a seperate sound? If that's not 8-part multitimbral, I don't know what is. And, you can hardly go wron...

If I did want a Minimoog Model D, that'd be the instance in which I'd get a MiniMax.

Virtual drum kits that can be used with Cubase SE 3

I've only been attempting to make music with Cubase SE 3 for just over a year, now. So, in effect, I'm still used to working with live sound, rather than SoftSynths. What I'd like is for someone to point me to any software drum kit with full editability of sounds that can be read by Cubase. I like t...

Killer demo! You have to send that to Sonicore. Thanks. I won't send it to Soniccore because I most likely won't get an answer from them. ...but my heart wants a Voyager. Not a bad choice at all :wink: If you send the demo in, you've got nothing to lose. If you don't send it in, you've got nothing ...

Yes, all Prodyssey. FX as well, only some reverb on one of the tracks.
I'm glad to know that the Prodyssey's only been out for so long, and it's already being used by musicians in their work.

Many things. First, I heard TOTO IV at the age of three. Then came the synthpop explosion of the greater part of the 80's; I don't need to go into the bands. Then came my exposure to the offerings of the 0's and 70's. When I started gaining an increased interest in the things, I was told I should ta...

Well, CreamWare definitely have a lock on look and texture. That became evident when I first got my hands on the MiniMax.

Now, if it had a vocoder in it, I'd put my money down on that one.

Can the same expression pedal used for controlling Moogerfoggers be used for controlling the Voyager or Little Phatty? Or, is there a pedal designed for working with those two synths?

I wish the Realizer had made it to mass production. Just a drag that VSE won't relate it to anything else, other than the Fairlight and the Synclavier.

It's pretty likely - but not confirmed here - that the Alesis R&D staff decided to stuff the ION with lots of features, including the presance of the Modulation Matrix. It's highly possible that they were focusing too much on stuffing the chasis and not enough on "functionality." One reason I'd cons...

They may not be "true blue," but they look it from a distance. The pinstripes seem to blur, as the looker backs...

Boss MetalZone

Out of curiosity, do any of you run your gear through a Boss MetalZone? I must say, I wish that was one of the emulations in my Line6 set-up. One of the best stompbox distortion generators I've had the pleasure to use. What about some of you?
