Re: What's the worst synth ever made?

Everyone talks about the greatest.... but what do you think is the worst synth ever made? Least reliable? Least versitile? And especially, the Hardest to program? (Without sysex) Hmmm. When I consider all of the above only one synth comes to mind: RedSoundSystems DarkStar XPII, an "improvement" ove...

i bought an es-1 a while ago. its a good little machine, and i really like the step sequencer on it. its fun and easy to work with, and it sounds good enough for my drum needs. enjoy it!

possibly not the best way to introduce yourself to a forum...!

i find my akai s3k quite easy to sample on, tho its a bit of a pain trying to store stuff. need to get the scsi card thing working on my pc or one of those hdd's. i think they did a massive keyboard version of one of the akai's.

yeah that would probably work ok. but if you have stuff that uses wall warts then you can just buy another adaptor over here to kick out 12v whatever, wont damage your gear. i would use a mix of the two. take the power strip with the converter for some stuff and buy a few multi-adaptors just to cove...

220v - 240v. some things say 220, some say 240. a few things even say 230. just get a erm. step down converter for your kit. that will kick out 110 for you.

when/where is it?

the synth at the start of "done with the scene" by kid 606. its a big fat square wave kind of sound that goes up the octaves over the course of the track. i think its a jupiter 8 from reading a review somewhere but i have no way of backing it up, but it might well be. i can get the bottom octave sou...

is that the x electrical up there? i buy a fair amount of stuff from the one in kingston. they aren't a complety c**p chain, they have pretty good gear but the pricing is either real high or real low.

yeah i was thinking that checking the chips are firmly in place would be the way to go, but its come back after a couple of turn off/on's. phew.... i will open it up tomorrow if i get the chance and have a look inside. i'm pretty sure its a CEM based synth, so its one voice per chip.

can you damage inputs?

lately all my recordings have been really quiet and sounding a bit c**p. i have been fairly abusive to the inputs on my desk over the years, so im just wondering if you can destroy/damage the inputs or wether its something else making everything lame. quite possibly me.
