Good idea. I would like to see more interface options. Like the touch pad, the d-beam, or the electribe arpeggiator. Some sequencer options would be nice too. And I don't just mean sequencing notes. For example, polyrhythmic step sequencers for patch parameters. Getting away from subtractive and FM ...

Actually, your Ion would not love it. It is a CV sequencer. But, if you get some analog gear, I would highly recommend the sequencer.

I was thinking that too. You could use it to trigger the hats in your patch and give you some nice hard swing sixteenths.

1 Poly I suppose the ultimate for me would be the PEK. But the Nord Wave and Stromberg look interesting. The Q+ could be a contender too. 2 Mono I guess I would pick a Voyager, but only cause you said modulars are not allowed and I would need something to replace it. There are a plethora of fine mon...

Awesome. I have a CZ-1, which I love. The CZ series have a very unique sound. They are always compared to the DX, but I don't think they sound anything alike. Have fun!!

Moogerfooger CP-251

There was a discussion about the CP-251 in this therad. I have seen other discussions where people seen to misunderstand what the box actually does. I made a video to illustrate how I use it with my modular. Anyway, have a look.

Excellent work. I watched it twice. :) Many thanks for making these. I was thinking of selling my MS2000 until I saw the first video. lol Please, please, please for the love of God make it a tutorial on FM. If there's one type of synthesis that fazes me (and many others I'm sure!) the most that's pr...

Quasimidi Question?

What is the difference in sound engines between the 309, Polymorph and Sirus? Do they have the same character?

The info on different websites is somewhat contradictory. Can you use the HP and LP filters at the same time?

Portable Dance Music Setup

What would put in a portable dance music setup? Something to take to parties or Burning Man or whatever. Let's say it all has to fit in a suitcase. It can be for acid, trance, hip-hop; anything that gets people moving.

Get one of each. And don't sell either. Ever.

No, seriously. Don't.

I may be a little late to the party, but if we are talking about subtractive synthesis, wouldn't that mean the filter is the most important part?

Anyway, I vote for the interface.

All synth filters are active. They have to be to buffer the stages. Typically they are either 2 or 4 pole. The big exception is the TB-303. It is 3 pole and the stages are not really buffered. Also, the poles are in different places. The MS-20 is perhaps my favorite filter. piRoN is correct about is...
