Just for the sake of completeness, my MiniMax soundexamples again: http://www.trippler.net/music/MiniMax_ASB/minimax_asb.html For those who own one, there is a bank with some 170 sounds on the page too. It seems as if you prefer using the MiniMax in solo mode muchmore than in polymode. The bulk of ...

Fourier Analysis Software

This isn't specifically a Software Synth question, but I figured I'd post it here, anyway. Half a decade ago, I went to what I called an "exhibit of the Senses" in the gallery of the college I attended. One of the booths was ased on sound generation. It included a number of acoustic/mechanical instr...

I hope the Prodyssey comes to Sam Ash or Guitar Center in Indianapolis, soon. If it and I are both there at the same time, I' plan to spend a pretty amount of time with it to see how close it comes to the classic.

Any ReBirth users?

Do any of you use Propellarhead ReBirth? If so, there's something I'd like to know. If i interfaced with Cubase, is it possible to control the individual 303, 808 and 909 simulations from external controllers? ReBirth is no longer manufactured by Propellarhead, but you can freely download the softwa...

M first synth was the QS6. It was baught for me as a gift in February of '97, near the end of its production run. Looking back, I wish I'd chosen the Korg X5D, or one of the Roland synths of that time. In looking for a digital synth of a certain caliber, the QS6 did pay more attention to the quantit...

Not sure. Perhaps, a properly organized demo of triggerd drums, pianos, organs, clavinets, leads, pads or human voice being run through the KP2's audio in's. I'm also told that the thing can be made to "function like a Theremin" and that it contains its own synth engine. I guess, those are the kinds...

Very informative. However, I'd be luck to even get to toy with the Vave 2.3, or the EVU, let alone the PRK FD. I'll have to settle for other master keyboards.

Another note to Waveterm: as your name would suggest, you appear to own plenty of PPG gear. Tell us a litle about the PRK keyboard. Is it really meant for anymore than a weird electronic piano keyboard? I bet you'd know more about it than I would.

Yamaha CS-01, man! You can also sling that around your neck, like a MIDI controller, or the Moog Liberation and Roland SH-101.

To Waveterm and dougt, I definitely know the value of the synths you both own, but I can't begin to fathom either of your rigs. I'd take a leaf out of either of your books, when it comes to your stands. But, I'm willing to settle for 3 tiers. Just like to know where to get the additional parts for a...

3-tier keyboard stand - longer than 48 inches in length

Hello out there. I'm interested in finding a keyboard rack system like the one in this link. But, I'd like it to be longer than 48 inches, so it can at least sit on top of a Fender Rhodes, or a CP70. Is there such a thing in the universe? I know that the 2-tier stands do it, but I'd like a 3-tier st...

A rompler is a keyboard that is playing back samples of waveforms recorded into rom memory, instead of generating waveforms via circuitry as in an analog or a virtual analog. Some people do not consider romplers synthesizers in the pure sense of the word. Romplers are better at sounding like acoust...
