kayvon, let me answer your PM here if I may so it's on the record. Actually, and I don't know if these comments come up in a search like my former comments, but I completely revised my impressions of the Bass Station when I got my second unit. I am torn between selling the one I have, but I'm not th...

Bravo, VSE'ers!

Sorry Mods if this is not the appropriate place to post this thread, but it seems appropriate to me. I just want to say that I listen to A LOT of other folks' music and while I don't comment on every one, VSE has far and away the most interesting and talented collection of posters on the forums and ...

I love your music! The CS demo is nice, but the stuff at your MySpace site is wicked good. Good job!

If you look at the other videos under my name at You Tube you'll also see us do "Have a Cigar" and "Cymbaline".

If you're interested I'll tell you more about my setup.

Fusion & Electro play Pink Floyd live

We played this gig about two weeks ago. I love that joint - great ambient sound.

Us and Them/Any Colour You Like

Careful with that Axe Eugene

Welcome to the Machine

All of the samples are playing off the Fusion, as well as all piano, synth, and Farfisa organ sounds. The Nord is good, too.

Ok, im not sure I know what that means - no one can go into the details right now? All I can gather is that the analog side of evolver/Prophet 08 is much the same as the Andromeda.....one chip which has ocilator, vca and filter (x8) agreed? DS I honestly don't know whether the details can be attain...

I don't know why people on the AH list and elsewhere are chasing this. Here is what DB said on 8/17/06 in regards to the CEM3396 question on the MP forums: "They are, in fact, based on the chips used in the Marion synth, but they have been modified to meet Dave's specifications, so you could pretty ...

Topic: What exactly makes a VA synth?
Replies: 36
Views: 3852

I think the real distinguishing trait for VAs is that they are designed to sound and 'feel' as much as a true RA as possible. The Roland D series may have some digital synthesizing facilities on board (besides the PCM stuff) that might make it possible to get a 'warm analog sound' but that was not ...

My main point was to clarify a misconception: Bucket Brigades (like the old SAD chips) are pure analog, not digital. Differences between the two are readily heard, especially with digital...The lower the bit rate the rougher the sound - plus you get aliasing, decidedly not analog. at all ;) Thats n...

I had inquired about the clipping only because I had heard this could be an an issue with the Evolvers and was wondering if the '08 had inherited this issue as well. That's a conversation Jame, Stefan, perhaps Ski a little, and myself have been having pubickly since the P'08 announcement. You have ...

There's no clipping. Unless maybe about 5 seconds in for just a moment. The filter is being driven very heavily with FM into distortion and you're hearing the overtones being swept...Its very close to one of my favorite patches on my Prophet 600 used as a "bed" in this tune: http://carbon111.com/mu...

I'm really learning you can't please everybody. A lot of folks over on KSS really hate these demos...especially the third one with the filter FM. Tsk, James. Focus on the positives, will you? I think a lot of us over there were grateful. Only a few were pricks. I heard the clipping, too. Which I me...

Yeah, nice sounds BTW OJ. I especially liked that bell sound. Isn't it neat how the P6 can get sounds like that with such a limited architecture? I think what is really special about this synth is that while it does have its limits, it has such a unique sound. The only other instrument that has this...
