Not necessarily! The Moog LP has Auto-Tune and VCOs (i.e. a CV summer and expo circuit).

Re: Korg Monotribe ?

Looks like there are some onboard effects as I can read flang. I'm thinking it says Range (part of the sequencer section?) but it's all just speculation at this point. Whatever it is I just think it's great that Korg's flirting with Analog! What really takes the cake is that the picture shows the t...

Re: Synth sounds for the Nord Electro 2

Yes, you can get some decent synth sounds when using the Modulation and Effects sections. Try adding some ring mod to one of the Piano sounds and experiment with flanging or phasing.

Re: Modular duophony + analog keyboard splitting

Would it be possible to run the cv from a mono keyboard into a splitter and then put a variable resistor on one of the outputs to reduce the voltage to the desired octave? This seems like it should be possible.. You could send the keyboard CV out into a comparator and use a specific voltage point t...

Re: Modular duophony + analog keyboard splitting

Ugh... looks really expensive. Maybe the easiest way to do it is just use two mini monophonic keyboards side by side that send to two separate modular sets. Yeah, this is the best way to go for what you're interested in! You can rout each keybard's CV and Gate out to the particular modular setup fo...

Re: Modular duophony + analog keyboard splitting

I could be wrong but I believe the only thing available to give you what you're looking for is: http://www.cluboftheknobs.com/polyclavier.html If you're doing this via MIDI you'd need a keyboard which can be split to two separate MIDI channels and then somethings like this: http://bigcitymusic.com/i...

Re: Slim Phatty

In general the name is quite well known amongst non synth people. http://images.wherearesueandmike.com/uploaded_images/P1000585-745722.JPG I'm just being silly but Moog is very well known as a control engineering company outside of the synth/music world! They make amazing products in their field as...

No new synths. I still think they're brewing a new killer. This is just a way to continue the guitar technology.

Re: Good electrical engineering books on synthesizers

A great book about OP amps, filters, oscillators and such which can be applied to the understanding of synths from a solid math standpoint is: http://www.mhhe.com/engcs/electrical/franco3/ Anyhow, Electronotes and the Chamberlin book are great references and there is some great stuff to be found at:...

the monorocket cases can't handle metasonix stuff because the power supplies aren't as good as the newer doepfer or tiptop power supplies i have a doepfer a100g6 right now, but when I get another case I'm going with gorilla box, or something with a tiptop supply, i'd rather pay more to have things ...
