Re: Prophet five rev 2

Re: The Korg MS-20 vs. The Yamaha CS-15

How are the envelopes on the CS-15? I've heard the CS-10's are better, but I want to know if they are snappy enough for ya AG?

I might be wrong but, the Origin doesn't even contain the full softsynths right? I really don't see the point, especially at that price. #-o

Just got mine, it's a brilliant piece of kit! I've been playing with it on and off all day. I seem to keep making rump shake'n acid, for the most part; I got a sweet string sound by setting both synth parts proper, then I edited the drum synth as well, added delay to the drums, then chorus to every...

Very intresting. To my suprise I prefered the oscillators of the MS-20 and 2600, I thought the mini had the best square though. I assumed the mini was going to take it all. :lol:

Sonic Core System 1200

Didn't see a post on this yet, but I have a buddy that rants and raves about the Creamware boxes; so, while looking into their Pro-12 I came across this: http://www.sonic-core.net/en/products/system1200.html It's a Pro-12 and a Minimax in one sweet lookin set-up, a bit out of my price range though.
