Re: Tangerine Dream - what synth is this?

like this?

the sounds are different but the sequencing is as close to identical as you're ever going to get:

Re: I Dream of Wires

Eurorack is the most forward thinking of the Modular world. All of the 5u guys are mostly trying to still be Moog like, right down to the looks. i actually need to take issue with this. i am the only Moog-format modular maker who goes out of his way to look as much like RA Moog period modular gear ...

Re: Wavetable vs Transwave Synthesis

I may well catch h**l from FIZMO owners, but I suggest you try an Ensoniq VFX, or SD. you'll catch no h**l from me. i traded my FIZZMO for a broken XTK and didn't look back. then i sold the XTK, bought a Blofeld Keyboard and a few expensive nights out, and didn't look back again. the VFX is somethi...

Re: Restarting the Fizmo Project

The Fizmo has a whole bunch of parameters that you can't edit from the panel. For example, the three envelopes appear to be ordinary ADSRs, but they're actually 5-segment envelopes. The filter appears to be just an LPF, but it's actually multimode with a number of selectable pole configurations. th...

Re: Korg Radias price drop to $699

Re: 909, 808, 303 - Worth it?

It's just weird for me that somehow in the last ten years or so, the 909 has been elevated from "a poor man's 808" to "one of the most important drum machines an electronic musician can have." The 909 has become a "classic" in a very short time the TR-909 has held the same price for like 10+ years,...

Re: 909, 808, 303 - Worth it?

the amazing stuff BT does these days, that's what I meant by how production has improved, I mean could you imagine "This Binary Universe" being programmed on an 808 - I for one sure can't ;) some people would say "why would you want to?" just because productions have become more complicated does no...

Re: 909, 808, 303 - Worth it?

yes, though i'll say i'm happy with the x0xb0x instead of the 303. but it might not be for you. the 808 and 909 are right there along with the Minimoog and Hammond for me, among some other gear. some gear i own because i like the way it makes sound or the way it sounds. some gear i like because of h...

Re: is smoking in a room bad for the output of a synth

if you do smoke in your studio, FFS please make sure there's routine exchange of air and proper ventilation. both of my TR-x0xen were from obvious smoking studios. however, one of them it was only obvious because of some mild decolouring of the switch caps. the other one though looked like it had be...

Re: Deadmau5 live setup

i like how he says you can play great dance music live for 15 minutes or crappy dance music for hours, because great dance music has lots of plugins and compression, apparently.

and yeah, that was interesting.
