You're right, but in Poland we use it when English speaking people would use "f**k", "s**t" or similar word ;-)

Back on topic:

Radek said, that there may be bad pot (not dirty, but just worn out) and suggested replacing pots. Jexus didn't like the idea ;-)

If you are looking for workstation-sounds, the MM6 features a handsome collection of sounds taken from the Motif series. I haven't owned one, and can't comment on how programmable it is (I don't think it is to any great depth), but it has a few knobs for controlling the most commonly-used parameter...

It may be joke. "Traumton" would mean in German "sound from a dream" or sth similar ;-)

Great track :-) Reminds me of Amiga modules from early 90's.

Good job :D

No, but AFAIK there are some utilities for converting DX patches to SY-readable format.

The XP-10 is good- OK, it's a cheap case with a nasty keyboard, but the synthesis is... well, it's a JV1080, innit?
It isn't. Keyboard version of JV1080 was XP-50 (adding sequencer). AFAIK XP-10 is something more like JV-35.

I started from home keyboards , but my first 'true' synth was SIEL DK-80 in 1999 - I was 15 then. Unfortunately it died year later and I bought Yamaha CS1x.

It's one of GEM home keyboards from mid '90s. ( I saw it in the store around 1996, but ended buying Yamaha PSR-520 )

That's the case with unregulated power supplies.

Anybody got one of those xenyx models with the built-in FX? I need something cheap that can apply a bit of reverb and delay to my synths. Just for fooling around at home. Is the xenyx fx-series what I want? For playing at home it's OK. Reverb is nice. Chorus too. Main drawback is, tha you cannot ad...
