Re: Why are organs so easy to synthesize?

The playing method is typically the same as well. guitars/violins/horns/etc have a very accidental interface, whereas keyboards are very deliberate.

Re: Making A Rompler Rancid

An overdriven ART tube mp is a cheap solution that actually sounds good! I have three of them and they all give a nice high frequency rolloff, and a mild breakup

do any of you jam with other synth guys?

I know we are relatively few in number, comparatively speaking, but do any of you ever jam with another synth player?
Do some collective midi clocking, and go to it like guitar, bass and drummers would? In my area its rare, but super every time i've done it!

Re: Roland JX3P and PWM

How to author timbre remains a great way to say it! I will stand by my earlier statement. If I alter the partials by adjusting the pulse width, whether by hand, lfo or envelope, then I am certainly authoring timbre. AG, are you using the minimoog as a line in the timeline sand? As if to say "nothing...

Re: Roland JX3P and PWM

We all love PWM because it's a cool sound. But it's an effect, not a synthesis too. Lots of synths don't have it. Many vintage synths only had it as an apology for single oscillators.
