Re: A track to usher in October

A little fun with the MEK, P'08 and Motif 8.

Re: Synths in the City

East village music has a decent selection of used synthesizers and drum machines. Main drag music in Williamsburg has used stuff as well as new Moog equipment. east village is a crook and main drag are a bunch of pricks. rogue music is good, there's also EARS. Armen's is pretty nuts but he's a croo...

Re: Korg Radias price drop to $699

The MS2000 always struck me as a toy synth, not to be taken seriously. Not directed at you personally, but I never quite get what people mean by this, you can make good music with just about anything. And you don't have to take music or an instrument seriously to make good music either. I personall...

Re: Rant: No more microkeyboards!!

oo The main keysynths in my studio are a CASIO MT-70 and a KORG MicroKorg, which I play manually (and, I hope, well). Take a listen: http://soundcloud.com/swegmanhattan My sought-after vintage synths are a YAMAHA CS-01, DX-100, and CASIO CZ-101 My wife and I share a 250 square foot Manhattan co-op. ...

Re: Hardware Arpeggiator Recommendations?

Hi. I would suggest the original microKorg . . . $400 gets you a hardware Arpeggiator with UP, DOWN, UP/DOWN, RANDOM, and TRIGGER, plus you can turn the eight steps on and off in any combination you want, using the program buttons, giving the patterns a step sequencer feel.

Re: Mopho keyboard shipping?

oo The Tetra can stand on its own well, yes, yet in every way the instrument appears to me to have been designed as a voice-expansion module . . . for a future keysynth . . . and that future keysynth is now - the MoPho. I have desired a MEK for a long while, but marriage and moving to Manhattan came...

Re: Spandau Ballet: Guess the synth!

oo Hi. I'll go on the record with ROLAND ProMars "Compuphonic" as well . . . btw: the video you posted lead me back to "Instinction" - which I have not seen since I was, like, 15. There is a fleeting glimpse of an OBERHEIM OB-Xa in that video. "Instinction" remains one of the strangest pop songs I h...

Re: Lead sound in "The Party's Over" by Talk Talk

oo I saw Talk Talk open for Elvis Costello in 1983, or I should say I went to see Talk Talk with Elvis Costello closing . . . On stage there was a ROLAND RS-09, an OBERHEIM OB-Xa, and a YAMAHA CP-70 electric grand, and that live trio of keys covered all the sounds heard on the recording. I still thi...

Re: What got you into synths?

Re: What makes a good synth player?

Your synths must have wood panels. oo I agree completely . . . side wood is GOOD!

This new synth looks a lot like my CASIO MT-70 (circa 1982) . . .

. . . and this new synth is probably just as sonically powerful!
