Re: Synthesizers and their (true) sound

So then when we talk about the specs of any given synth, shouldn't we talk about the *whole* processing line, from beginning to end? Generally this doesn't happen. There's talk about filters, waves, modulation, etc. But what if it's the reverb or some other "non-synth-specific" element that's makin...

Re: Synthesizers and their (true) sound

As filters , equalizers, delays, chorus, flangers, phasers and schroeder-reverbs all rely on delay-lines, there's no point in assuming that some are "legal effects" and others aren't. I'd say that all these effects are welcome parts of any synthesizers. So there's no reason to be snobby about having...

luckily that song/loop (which plays on until the end) is totally not annoying... :mrgreen: :facepalm:

Re: eurorack/lunchbox questions

I knew I had a potential zombie thread laying around here, to prevent me from making a new thread. Another question for the modular users: Am I right in thinking that the audiosignal (say, a sawtooth) as generated by an oscillator module has the same voltage 'loudness' as any controlling signal, suc...

Re: General views of synthesizers when they were introduced?

I might want to add that synthesizers with basic sound shaping implementations didn't do much to make sounds very human. They were quite static in their dynamic flow as well as their sound character. FM changed this somewhat, at least when it came down to tonal variation (the fact that operator phas...

Re: Roland Boutique

I think it'll be like a MicroBrute, possibly with some plug-out implementation.

Re: Korg Might Be Up To Something.

Having heard the Liverpool @ youtube and soundcloud, it sounds like dull 90's MIDI-files. :(

Re: Yamaha Reface

Point is, it would make perfect sense. You've got the analog-type Reface, the FM-type, the organs, the pianos, and now the VL-type. With that, all the synthesis models ever used by Yamaha would be available as a reface. Also, considering they've got those VL expansion boards anyway, they only need t...

Re: Looking for these two sounds, pulling my hair out!

For a Fantasia, a 4-op FM synth would do. 1->2 for the bell, 3->4 for the pad. And not to forget: a chorus and some reverb!

Wasn't there this book, called Synth Farm, in which all synths are the same, except some synths are better than others? :-D

Re: Yamaha Reface

Hard to say, it's overshadowed by: - keys just being smaller, so somewhat impractical for blind playing for seasoned players - the key-down travel is obviously shorter so it's less easy to pinpoint a specific velocity compared to regular keys - I'd wish for more octaves.. Well, maybe it's not about ...
