maybe [it'll] loose the attitude, but i can have the complexity in the sound im looking for, even though the sound is not coming from a modular synth, it may sound like one, am i correct? I think so. But just to be clear. Based upon a modular built up of your typical components (VCOs,LFOs,EGs,VCAs,...

I own a poly evolver & a modular. They are completely different animals. I find them to be complements more so than substitutes. The way I look at it is.... either you really want a modular or you don't - typically it's about the $$$ they cost & the physical space they consume more than anything els...

yes, relocate! don't sell your gear till you get to the other part of the country that you speak of :D It's pretty much going to happen. Sometime between 3 months and the end of the year - all depends on what happens at my office within the next two months. or just sell me your 777 and 888 now... l...

If your set on a UW for its sample playback capabilities and its pecular sound, I don't think the 888 would satiate your desires. I had a regular MD for a while and the sounds are completely different than the jomox stuff, of course (I also had a jazbase). Also, where I think the sample playback on ...

I was mulling over this very subject myself, today, as I'm contemplating pulling my roots and transplanting across the country. No matter what direction my logic took me initially, I always ended up at the same spot - I think I'd rather get rid of my desktop stuff over my keys (except the modular of...

I'll work on some more samples over the weekend. I'm still trying to catch up from my trip to stumptown. All work and no play makes Jim a dull boy.

If anyone is interested, I can do a similar demo with the other analog sounds similar to what I did with the kick.

Speak up!

I found a host organism for my demo. Hopefully it will be posted shortly. I'm going to be traveling to Portland this weekend Thursday so I don't think I'll be able to get to the other demos until I return.

I just wish somebody in the space time continuum would post some demos actually showing the different sounds of the 888 rather than a repeating single pattern/kit. Ok ok fine fine! I'm sorry this has taken soooo long :oops: I just demo'ed the kick. I need someone to host it though. It is a 66MB wav...

Personally, I prefer the reverbs on the DP2 over the DP4(+). The DP4+ is better for overall sound mangling, however. Stab mentioned the MOneXL. I can vouch for that one as well. I think the DP2 is "warmer" than the M1XL, however the M1XL has a more defined sound to it. As for spring reverbs, I have ...

I will post a couple songs once I get a little free time (read, songs not demos). This will take some time as I have a week's worth of work, and c...
