Re: Your thoughts about rompler synthesis

Ah ROMplers. I read all this thread last night, bit of a brain melter. I agree with the person who said they look at ROMplers as being like Mellotrons, they have their own appeal and their lack of authentic emulation of real instruments is what's great about them. If the Kawai K1 could be considered...

Re: Novation DrumStation & BassStation Demos

Nice! Up until now I thought that there was a problem getting all of the drums sound channels to play without cutting each other out in the mix. Atleast thats what the person on the VSE homepage Drumstation Demo page said..... But I hear that BD doing the 4 on the Floor thing with the other drum so...

Re: Bluesynths developer needs synth community help...

I think the problem with Gearslutz is they're a forum, and view you publicising your new project (a forum with knobs on) as trying to siphon off their users to it. Arguably you're doing the same thing here but it looks like the mods don't mind (I wonder if that includes Mr VSE!). I think the trick w...

Re: my friend is giving me an asr-10

I started off with an EPS16+ (very similar to the ASR10), then bought an ASR-X then sold it after a few years and went back to the EPS. The EPS/ASR10 are slightly easier to understand than the ASR-X, which has a confusing way of organising 'normal' sounds and drumkits. There are more buttons on the ...

Can't go wrong at that price. On their own they'd be a bit limiting but they are a nice add-on.

Re: Matrix 6 vs Prophet 08

I'm happy with my Matrix 1000. I'm willing to wait a few years and pick up a P08 rack when everyone's bored with them and onto the next new toy.

Re: Matrix 6 vs Prophet 08

I don't think the chip failures are that common really, nowhere near as bad as say the Juno 106 ones.

I know I'm being a pain in the rear asking this, but is this definitely the case? The two sequences can loop at different lengths?

Re: MC-202 question

can the sequences be different lengths? like say a four bar sequence playing at the same time as a 7-note loop sequence? Yes, you program them completely independant of one another. Are you 100% sure about this? I've been looking at the manual and can't work out if it can or can't. I asked on AH a ...

Re: Battle of the lower-priced 'hybrid' synths.

i feel like the esq-1 gets a little over rated. it's really good for clangy detuned bells (think japan or ryuichi sakamoto's merry christmas mr lawrence soundtrack) and woozy strings, and that's about it. basses are way too muddy for my tastes, and the envelopes are really mellow. most of the sampl...

Waldorf Pulse has 3 DCOs. I've still yet to hear a Poly-Pulse, anyone got one?

Re: yamaha TG-33?

does £150 for one of these sound like a good deal? also, are there any reliability or build issues i need to consider? thanks You'd get one for well under 100 quid on Ebay, maybe about 50 if you're lucky. They're a Yamaha so will be pretty reliable unless someone has been really careless with it. A...
