Re: Rush 2112 Intro Sound

How did they do that? What synth? They travelled into the future and sampled Rush 2112 :lol: Sounds like oscillators off, filter resonance all the way up, noodling with the filter frequency. It's definitely running into a delay as well. You could achieve that sound with pretty much any synth that h...

Re: New Elektron box--Analog Four

Nice demo. If this thing had MIDI tracks I'd own one already. Sounds great, this is a good display of its workflow. Can you do the push+turn trick to speed up knob changes like on the Monomachine?

Re: Closest synth to an Arp Odyssey for under $200 (don't la

A used Alesis Micron. It's the only thing that will come close, primarily because of it's mod matrix. But you will be hard pressed to easily stumble on good sounds like you will with an Odyssey. So while in that price range the Micron is your best bet for being able to produce similar sounds, you wo...

Re: Mini-synth

Those both look wonderful! The only thing holding me back is the price. I'm a guitar pedal fanboy by trade but I'm absolutely clueless when it comes to synthesizers. Can both of those synths work with eurorack moduals? Malekko is right here in Portland so I may buy some of those someday They can if...

Re: Mini-synth

I wouldn't recommend any of these synths as a first synth, unless you only plan to play preset sounds with minimal adjustment. All three of them use editing matrices, which means you really have to know what you want to change before you change it. It doesn't lend itself well to finding your way aro...

Re: My (and Your) Favorite Minimoog Solos

Probably not the most synthtacular solo, but super entertaining. I especially love the look of nonchalance on Ben's face as he's ripping it up on that poor Model D. Solo is at 3:38.

Re: Synth to buy as an incentive to not buy synths

A good laptop, a good controller surface, a good sound card, some good VSTs and a good keyboard. That's what keeps me from buying hardware. I keep a good 1-2 hardware pieces lying around for inspiration and fun, but every time I get the urge to buy too much stuff I just think of all the variety I al...

Re: Alternative of buying an ER1 and EA1 for 300 dollars...?

You could always save up another $100 and get an iPad 2 and Tabletop or Rhythm Studio. (or any host of other apps. iElectribe, iMS-20, Animoog, etc.) When you have a little more cash, get the Alesis IODock so you can have more audio/midi options. Every time I look at a hardware module I find myself ...

Re: New Indie / Dreampop Album with lots of keys and noises.

I also love the understated synth/keys bits.....i always wish indie rock had more synths/electronica vibes......but then again those parts are hard to write. either way, good job! :) I did have to practice some restraint to avoid going too synthy, but I did find room to nerd out a bit here and ther...

New Indie / Dreampop Album with lots of keys and noises....

HI, Folks - I've gone and made a record with some pals here in the Midwest and I'd love for you to check it out. We did this ourselves mostly, though it was mastered at The Mystery Room here in Milwaukee. It's ten songs mostly written by my pal Jeremy who I've always known was a friggin' genius. Onl...

Re: Best Linux software for synth nerds and producers?

Try Sunvox. It's a cross platform tracker/modular sound lab kind of thing. I love it. Does not support Jack, but you can use the Win32 version via Wine with WineASIO if you need Jack.

It's free, but not OSS. http://www.warmplace.ru/soft/sunvox/

Re: Blofeld, Radias, or Ion?

I'm looking for my first hardware synth. Definitely avoid the Radias, it's pretty high on the learning curve. I have one and it's definitely overwhelming if you just want to fire it up and play. I feel more like a programmer than a musician when I use it, though it definitely has some serious firep...
