Can't wait. I've left reminders up all over my house. Most exciting thing to come on tv for a looooong time. I noticed in the TV Guide it mentioned how Tristram Cary wrote the Dr Who theme. They didn't forget old Delia did they? Tristram Cary did the incidental music, not the theme. That was Ron Gr...

Or, if you can live with the slightly limited academic version (I've never had occasions to use the unsupported plug-ins that they mention; it's fully functional otherwise) you can get this: http://www.academicsuperstore.com/market/marketdisp.html?PartNo=791020 for $150. All you need is a jpeg of a ...

The new prophet design leans more in the right direction color wise. I Love the Bauhaus font! Keep that please! +1 Where is there Bauhaus on the P-08? All I see is a slightly updated version of the old celtic-style Prophet font, and the Dave Smith signature logo. It's hard to beat the old Sequentia...

Although, if that is it, be forewarned, they seem to have gotten trendy and sell for more than they ought to (i.e. upwards of $100). What else is new, right?

I dont know what value of pot would be best, but I do know that the log pot on the behringer is annoying as h**l as you hardly hear any change in cutoff for much of the sweep of the pedal and then a lot in the last fraction of the sweep. Okay, so a linear pot would be the way to go. Thanks. I *thin...

What about the behringer fcv-100? can anyone find cv specs on this one? I wouldn`t reccomend it. I can`t get mine to output CV on it`s own and when used with an external CV signal it`s logarithmic taper is unsuitable. What I would do is get an ordinary volume pedal and get a quarter inch plug that ...

Footpedal with 0-10V output?

Does anyone know of a currently available footpedal that outputs 0-10V? I'm looking to use it for the Filter CV on my P-600.

Apparently the Moog expression pedals are 0-5V, and I can't find specs on anything else.

I'm still trying to figure this out. I found this: http://www.rhodeselectrics.com/korgcvpedal.htm which looks cool and like it would definitely work, but is quite a bit more money than I want to spend just to be able to do filter sweeps with my foot. The problem is none of the expression pedals I ca...

Here's another analogy, for those of us who are bit hazy on what Linux kernels are.

My admittedly non-expert ¢2: Most copyright/patent infringement cases tend to focus on whether or not, and the extent to which, the infringer is hindering the copyright/patent holder's ability to make money off of the legitimate product. That's why - to use an example from this thread - you couldn't...

Re: Whats a good drum machine for triggering drum synths?

I vaguely recall some Yamaha drum machine that has alot of outputs and is cheap for this purpose. Probably the RX5, they have 12 individual outputs, and you can find them quite cheap (under $100) on Ebay. Haven't tried it myself, but I've read numerous references to people using the RX5 to trigger ...

only thing the manual say is this: 1-8 Filter CV IN This jack accepts a 0-10 Vdc contol voltage (CV) which raises programmed filter frequnecy settings. This enables remote and spontaneous increace (but not decrease) of brightness. The CV is usally provided by an accessory voltage pedal. which is mo...
