Re: The noisy side of the Waldorf Blofeld

Well, for it was a synth demo originally all sounds were unprocessed, no additional FX, no mixing at all. I made a (hopefully) more transparent version with some EQing and compressing to leave more room for the vocals: http://www.trippler.net/files/blob/blovessel2.mp3 Not sure though if I should mak...

Re: Why do presets universally suck?

The P08 is in the same ballpark for me - not sound wise but some presets I quite like, some I have tweaked and many sent into hibernation on my hd. So did I, though I programmed around 30% of the factory presets ;) As mentioned before, manufacturers like to show variety in the factory presets. So t...

The noisy side of the Waldorf Blofeld

Re: Why do presets universally suck?

I nearly exclusively use presets. My own presets, that is. They are presets because I usually don't program them for a specific song. I have my sound programming days when I program and store sounds, then I have days when I try to make a little track with these sounds. Not using presets means that y...

Re: Why do presets universally suck?

As for preset-bashing, I see it like this... One either likes a preset or not. If so, then use it. If not, then replace it. It's all a matter of preference. That's true of course and I couldn't express it better. What bothers me a little though is that people tend to say "suck" instead of "I didn't...

Re: Why do presets universally suck?

I've always wondered I think it's mainly because most manufacturers can't pay an ingenious sound programmer like you :wink: What are presets actually ? Imho they are just sounds that some people programmed in a way they liked. If you rarely find presets that you like, it demonstrates that your tast...

No, it hasn't, and therefore editing from the frontpanel will drive you crazy.

Re: prodigy

I did always play with the oscillator sync switched on. If for some reason my pitch wheel was a glitch or a modification it was one of the best glitches ever. I love that effect. Your pitchwheel worked flawless then. You might however discover just a few interesting capabilities of your Prodigy if ...

The pitch wheel in normal Prodigies acts like standard pitch wheel as well. Except when oscillator sync is on, then the pitch wheel only affects the pitch of the slave oscillator, what may occasionally sound like the filter amount were changed.
Did you eventually have a customized Prodigy ?

I personally would rather have the Voyager than a vintage Mini.

Velocity sensitivity alone adds so much to expressiveness and playability.

Hi DoC This is your Old School? Unfortunately not. I have it only for 2 or 3 weeks for a review. UPS will pick it up again on Monday :cry: What are you using to control it? Filter etc etc.... I played it partly via MIDI-CV inteface to correct my bad timing. Modulations were however applied exactly ...
