The plates can eazely be removed with 2 screws.

I do think it's probably a stolen Juno. But how do you find the rightfull owner, it's impossible. So don't worry about it, there's nothing you can do.

Re: Here's a big System 100m I played with...

Cool stuff! The owner has a few other modulars too- he says the Doepfer stuff sounds just as good as this Roland, and with a wider choice of modules. However, he said his System 700 sounds even better... I played with a complete System 700 once, those VCO's are monsterous. P.S. There's a Doepfer wit...

Moog will never make a poly.

You can run both the little phatty and voyager in poly mode, you just have to buy more of them.

So get a great master keyboard and 16 RME's, that will do the job.

Re: Do you leave your gear on all the time?

Modern hardware is reliable as all h**l, the worst thing you do to it is: 1. powercycle it, (check) If the designer has put enough cooling stuff on the equipment, it does not get warm. Hence it does not go into a powercycle. And turning it on/off will not affect sound. Making sure equipment stay's ...

does it not say what verison it is on the EEPROM? No it does not. Holding down the track Track Write button while powering on the 909 DOES work. But as soon as you let go of the button, the 909's lights will revert back to normal (which is what I was probably doing before). I see button 1(bassdrum1...

The second VCO on the 700s can't be detuned ether, it can just have (sub)harmonics of the master vco. Only the 770 has 2 fully ajustable vco's. The 800DV has 2 fully ajustable vco's and 2 extra (sub)harmonic vco's. Erm, my 700s has a detune for the second osc. It's only a saw wave though, and it's ...

Some analog drums use selfoscillating filters, e.g. the 808, 606 minipops ect. If we're being honest, 808 used a "Bridged T" oscillator, it didn't go to the complication of a filter. An (almost) selfoscillating filter is the same thing as a bridged T oscillator. The name comes from bridged T filter...

What is the a-165 useful for? I read about it but can't yet imagine a practical scenario The A-165 is a trigger modifier. It is essential if you want to use the S&H circuit of the A-155. This is because the S&H holds when a negative value is at the S&H control input. If there's a positive value at ...

Re: Doepfer A-100 Sequencer

What are the advantages to using the Doepfer seq as opposed to using an external seq to control it? Real analog sequensers have handson control. So you can ajust everything in real time. Analog sequensers are very very limited, but they have something that other sequensers don't have. It's so much ...

Just played with the P08 in a store. Its small! Pitch and modulation weels are in the wrong place. Rest of the layout is ok. Lots of modulation possibilities, Sequenser, arpeggiator. Build quality is not its strong point. Basic sound: Very clean and brite. It reminded me a bit of the Alphajuno-2, bu...
