I think you (and your friend) have a nice grasp of how to make "it" sound polished. Nice, tight, compositions. The only thing I would say is you sound a little reserved, sort of always staying in musically and aesthetically safe zones. You clearly have some skills, why not try and take it a little f...

Yeah, don't fret yet. The Q has a pretty easy power supply - it's a computer switching supply like used for digital camcorders, laptops and printers. It's bolted on the inside and the connector is just glued to the PCB where you have some more power circuitry - a rectifier, IIRC some resistors and s...

I know you started this thread about a different song, but it led me to "Feedbag" which I have to say is brilliant

Synth Tech is reliable. I've ordered CEMs from him before. Senso is reported to be reliable, too, although I personally haven't ordered from him (yet).

Don't forget all of the velocity settings and other things you set via MIDI - those will vastly affect the sound depending on how you have it set up. FWIW, I changed the priority to last note and disabled dynamic filter, AT to cutoff, and filter velocity. That way the parameter changes respond in th...

UPS tried to ruin a transaction between myself and Malik but were unable to topple the Will of the Great Whale Village. Malik's cool, calm and collected demeanor under the circumstances was and is inspiring. Mark me - business with this fellow is business worth doing.

The "survival kit" is a good suggestion...a DAC and processor are on my shopping list along with a few pots and what-have-you. I thought a guy like you always put together survival kits. I certainly do! Good luck finding a CPU - it's a custom mask, and DS says he doesn't have the code (or was it he...

Did you install a MIDI kit while you had it all apart? I love those cabs and the DSI mod wheels. OTOH I wish I didn't get rid of my Pro One, it was all MIDI'd up and perfect - but OTOH GAS has its way with a person. If those cabs were available back then I may have kept it. Make sure you get a spare...

As I state on the webpage, I'm using the Deoxit Faderlube (formerly Calilube MCL) from Caig. I'm using the 5% stuff so as not to "gum up the works" with residue. The regular Deoxit shouldn't be used as it can damage some pots.
I told you the Calilube would work. Just follow the instructions, no?

Uh-on! The last time someone bought something on my recommendation (partially, at least, I realize there are other people recommending it, too, still...) it didn't work out so well. I WARN you right now - it will probably disappoint you at first. You have to get used to it - the filter and the filte...
