Hear my Minimoog, Jupiter 8 and Motif XS in this video

I did a remix of Saul Williams "Banged and Blown through". I layered all of the music you hear, on top of his voice. I did the Drums on the Mpc 2500. The main synth riff is the Motif XS. The bass is Minimoog doubled with the Motif. The lead synth that comes in on the second verse is the Jupiter 8. E...

I recently downloaded the wav files from this drum machine and many other classics to load into my MPC. It probably adds functions that weren't on the original, like tuning the sounds etc...

Hey John,
Any luck contacting the guy at dg audio repair ? This is a forum dedicated to all things Kurzweil. Someone over there may be able to assist.

great collection of posters you get o' this site - the synth's designer himself on this time, the keyboardist from "billy jean " on the other thread, half the staff of DSI plus the original Andromeda techs earlier the year....;) Yes this is quite a community of synth enthusiasts and professionals. ...

It sounds like the Solaris will be getting a makeover. The olive could possibly be off-white or creme and the anthracite may end up being closer to black than blue. Sounds good to me! Not only will they sound sexy, but will look the part as well :P

A Z1 XY style pad above the wheels, which would be below the vector joystick would have been cool to. from John Bowen Synth Design: Vector Mixers - these are simple quad mixers that also have 4 inputs. Again, the inputs can be any of the sources in the Solaris. The built-in joystick (not shown in t...

I know suggestions for a ribbon controller have come up before. How about an optional ribbon controller similar to the one that is used by the Kurzweil k2661? The 600mm ribbon controller is programmable in three distinct zones or one long zone. There is an input for it right next to the pedal inputs...

I'm looking at this as a great SYNTH, not as a device that's going to emulate something else. thanks droolmaster0, I couldn't have said it better! I once owned the V-Synth and thought it was great, but for me it was limiting. I played the V-Synth GT and it's definitely steps above the original, but...

Selling the K2661 for the Solaris ? ehm ... I really can't understand... If you need a real analog, well the solaris is not the solution... Buy a P08 or an A6... weell... you have it !!! If you need a great digital synth... the K2661 is the right choice... so really I can't understand this choice.....

I'm really looking forward to this synth! Unfortunately I must sacrifice another piece of gear to justify my indulgence. I've decided to let go of my Kurzweil K2661. It's a really cool machine, but there's others that get more affection from me. I have a feeling that Solaris won't have that problem....

I recently sampled a several drum kits off of my Asr 10 into the Mpc 2500. They sound incredible. The Mpc sequencer is#1 and it's just so fun to put things together with this machine. I find it alot better for building tracks with my analog gear, than when I just used my Motif and Cubase. The Asr ha...

I finally got to lay my hands on the Prophet 08. It sounds awesome! I don't think I'll sell my Rev 2 to get one. The knobs are tiny,but plentiful. It has a very familiar interface. I once owned the Poly Evolver Keyboard. I would definitely buy the Prophet 08 over the Evolver if I had to pick one. I ...

It sounds like you need an Akai MPC 2500. For tweakability and 10 outs this will get the job done. Contrary to popular belief it's not just for hip hop. This machine is for every kind music.
