Re: Heldon

Richard Pinhas's East West is one of my top 3 records since I got it after it came out. Not so much a fan of the recent stuff - I haven't head much Heldon. Thanks for these.

Re: Richard Pinhas East West synths

thanks.

I was thinking last night that a sequencer might be called a computer.

Any idea on the PPG? I was thinking it would be the Wavecomputer 360 but I see there was a 340 - no idea if that was a wavetable one like the 360 though.

Richard Pinhas East West synths

Maybe someone knows the answer to this. In the gear listing for this album it says "PPG Computer" - does anyone know if that is the PPG 360 wave computer? Also intrigueingly it mentions "E-mu Computer" any ideas what that is? thanks

Re: Anyone have a bad luck Synth?

I think for me it was the Matrix 6R also. I got one in an aution - got it here - auditioned the presets and found something weird on one of the voices..but then it was different voices..but only particular notes. took hours to understand exactly how to reproduce the fault - and then it took 2 techs ...

Re: electrix warp factory vocoder

I'm not sure what you are asking - but if it is as I suspect about controlling the onboard oscillator via MIDI I don't think you can. It seems obvious it should but I don't think I found it.

Re: Pre '60s electronic music ?

Most of the BBC radiophonic stuff is I think in the 60s. Daphne Oram started there the end of the 50s(?). Her "Oramics" is well worth a listen, she had a system that used film to control stuff. There was something I saw about trying to restore her set up. I think the Raymond Scott album I would reco...

Re: Modular duophony + analog keyboard splitting

I'm going from memory here because I'm currently not in front of it - but it was very simple. Each channel on the Kenton Pro has note assignment - so I set one to low, one to high. Each channel has CV and Gate out - it does have other outs but I just used those. Connected one CV and Gate to one patc...

Re: Modular duophony + analog keyboard splitting

I've set up an arrangement like this myself. I had a polyphonic keyboard (Roland U20 - they are very cheap now) and Kenton Pro 2000. I assigned low note priority it channel A on the Kenton, high note to Channel B - then routed the A and B CVs and gates to the modular.

Re: what are the coolest/strangest modular hardware sounds?

Do you know if Franke still uses his modular for soundtracks? I'm wondering exactly what say Zimmer used modulars for on the more recent soundtracks. Maybe it was spot FX? Then I could understand why he'd go to the bother of patching up a big modular. I saw a film of him showing off the modular etc ...

Re: VP-330 Vocal Section

Perhaps the Korg DVP-1? It's digital but has a set our choir waves. If you go to http://share.ovi.com/media/ChamomileShark.public/ChamomileShark.10021 about 3 mins in I go through the waves part. I've noticed there is vibrato on it - on a track where I took the vibrato out one of those waves with th...

Re: what are the coolest/strangest modular hardware sounds?

as a side thought on the control and tone thing - I always wondered why the likes of Hans Zimmer had modulars - i thought he could not possibly have the time to set stuff up - I still wonder what it's used for - I know Zappa had an EMU modular for working out polyphonic brass patches, but then he di...
