Re: TX81z control with a standard midi controller

I'm pretty sure you need to control the TX81Z with sys-ex messages, so you'd need a controller that can send those.
I think Novation and Edirol can send sys-ex, but not sure which other ones can.

Re: Access Virus TI 2 - pricing clarification needed...

Well, since they've made a design change, they won't be making any more of the older style design. They'll have to sell the existing stock of the first TI style first though. The TI2 only has 25% more dsp power, so there'll probably be another dual update or two.

Re: Alesis A6 owners / buying it in 2009

... i just brought home an '04 A6 today...1900 USD w/ anvilcase it's perfect - looks, feels and smells brand new =P~ Hope you're enjoying it. I'm sure the vast majority of A6's are just fine. I got one a few years ago, and it had a few problems, so I exchanged it, and thing's have been just fine wi...

Re: Alesis A6 owners / buying it in 2009

If you can swing the price difference, I'd definitely recommend getting a new one. It's a pretty complicated synth with a multitude of things to check and that could possibly be, or go wrong. Nothing like having a warranty to fall back on. Barring that, download the manual, and familiarize yourself ...

You sure about the price on the EWI?

Re: List of synthesizers capable of additive synthesis

I think the definition of 'additive synth' needs to be firmed up some - so join in. Here's what I think: what defines an additive synth is the ability to change individual partial's amplitudes over time. This can be done with envelopes, lfo's, and other mod sources. If you can set the amplitude of t...

Re: I've sold my Micron and regret it!

...Is the Micron that unique do you think? The Micron's pretty unique. I wouldn't have sold it. But it's the least expensive of the 3 you mentioned, so you could try doing without it for a while, and if you find you still want one, it shouldn't be too difficult to get another one. I've got a TI and...

The non-resonant filters on my EPS weren't much better than a bass/treble control on a radio.

Well - not really, because you could still mod them with envelopes/lfo's and such.

If you've already got the expansion board, I'd probably say to get a Z1 first. You'll have 2 forms of VL then (Z1 and Fusion). You'll have 3 forms of VA then too (AN1X, Fusion, and Z1). Your SY and Fusion have FM, which the EX5 doesn't have. So the only thing you'd be gaining really is the FDSP. I g...
