I got mine from Nova. Haven't looked, but when I got mine it was $50 less than AH. AFAIK all of their units went to the tech to have the one outstanding issue repaired (MIDI tracking). Mine works fine.

Are you watching that one on Ebay? Is there a hurry? I'd have to run and turn on the studio computer if that's the case. It can defnitely do bass of the three oscillator meaty sort - you're not going to think it can do it when you first start twiddling with it, but once you get used to it the Neptun...

I have one. I put a demo up in the listening lounge months ago: http://www.vintagesynth.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=35111&highlight=&sid=ef35a6fced4bcbd6535346250a21c48a Great synth. It's in this track, too. http://www.vintagesynth.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=36985 I used it for bass on something - fo...

IMHO the MKS-50 is BY FAR the best of the Junos, and, to me, bests the JPxX engines. The only other Roland analog aside from the MKS80 that I think is better is a MKS-30 with the PG200. I recently made a PG300 emulation for the BCR2000 - totally opens up the Alpha Juno engine. There's nothing like a...

But im looking at toning down the distortion on the vocals, and actually make my work a bit more melodic. I guess the best descripton of my new stuff would be Industrial Trip Hop. I'll go back and figure out which of the songs were, as I said, an excellent blend of a Skinny Puppy/NIN aesthetic. Bur...

Holy c**p - now here's a Roland synth in which I can believe the hype. That thing sounds good!

I love the entire download package - very nice and professional. You have those Skinny Puppy-esque vocals down that's for sure. I think on some of the tracks the vocal performance is downright excellent. Bury Me Alive for whatever reason stuck out as having a little of that something special. I don'...

Thanks, gents! Yes, Carey, that is indeed a Wurli from an Electro. And yes, there is Neptune, it's part of one of the first melody lines, it sort of blends with the PEK - the Neptune I think is doing the root notes and the PEK is doing the complimentary notes in that line. I used a lot of reverb on ...

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you are a bassist first. The bass line is fabulous. Really nice bass work.

You need to re-mix this. The drums over-power everything else. It's a nice enough piece but I mostly heard drums and the bass.

This is really good. "Soundtrack" is the ideal word, too, it conjures up an atmosphere you can't help but daydream in. Nice work!

mo' muzak

I haven't posted new music in a while, so here's one...

Clover part 7

Warning: it's inspired by the likes Sigur Rós and compositions like The Court Of The Crimson King so it may seem a little repetitive if you're not into that kind of muzak.

One of my favorite compositions entirely done on a Minimoog would have to be Amin Bhatia's Flight Beyond the Stars demo from 1981 though. You can listen to this track on Bhatia's website (scroll down and click on the green image under the Minimoog): http://www.interstellarsuite.com/hear.html All th...

A Six Trak would give you not one, but SIX monos with patch memory. It could be polyphonic, and it could be mono. Great little synth.

You guys who have a JP6 collecting dust, if you're into shipping it and can wait a few while funds are put together, shoot me a PM.
