I always wondered when someone would make a guitar with individual outs for each string? If someone does, please tell me who. It would be so much fun running each string through a different effect or a different delay note division.... As I recall Kramer made one in the 80's, I want to say it was c...

Yawn. Moog should stick to synths. This appears to be an updated version of the Sustainiac guitar. Back in the '80's you could buy a Westone Sustainiac for about $350 that did pretty much the same thing. I'll admit that it appears that Moog has refined the concept a little but as an ex-guitarist (pl...

Minty Polysix - $40. Wasn't working properly at the time, just needed to be calibrated.

The Audioframe 1000 by Waveframe was also used by Fred Myrow and Malcolm Seagrave (on the soundtracks to 'Phantasm II & III', 1988/1994), Peter Gabriel ('The Last Temptation of Christ', 1988), and Herbie Hancock. Micke Cool! I didn't know about Herbie. Do you happen to know which album? Waveframe i...

It still works but I moved my music room so it is in pieces as I haven't to set it back up yet. Sampling and sample editing is dead easy. The pattern sequencer is actually a version of Roger Powell's Texture that runs on the hardware and is simple to use. There's also a linear sequencer (the "event ...

If you've got wood for an '80's megabuck sampler the Waveframe 1000 might fit the bill. Sampling, sequencing, mixing, 24 bit recording, dsp/effects. Built to compete with the Synclavier and the Fairlight Series III. They're hard to find but they sound great and when you do find one you can usually p...

+1 on the Emulator. Look for the keyboard magazine article "Cyberpunk" from the earlier 90's.

I have what some would call a "tin ear". High end chirps and squeeks really bug me ... I hear this character in all the DSI products I've heard. Some find it edgy .. I don't. I'm the same way and most of the Evolver factory presets really grate on my nerves but it's pretty easy to tame and it has b...

exactly. its just too flexible, and not in a 'sort of good at everything' way, but in a 'bad a*s at everything you try' way. remember, skuppy, severed heads, and lots of other industrial users/some of the greatest sample users of all time used that 'vinage c**p' the modern stuff is nice, but not ne...

Is there some specific reason that your looking at ancient Emu's? You might want to go for something a bit more modern if you're looking for ease of use or if you're new to this kind of thing. Sampling time is really limited on the EII and EMAX's and while the interface is better than the Mirage it'...

I'd suggest an Akai S5000 if you don't need builtin effects. The Yamaha A4000 if you need effects.
