Re: Multitimbral Analog?

The MKS-50 happens to be the only MKS that's controllable from a computer based editor. Pretty sure the MKS-70 can be controlled via MIDI/computer based editor as well. (But not its keyboard-based cousin, JX-10). Oh how I wish that were true, but the MKS-70 has a 6 pin din socket for the controller...

Re: Juno 60/106 DCO differences

I used to have a Juno 106, and have played many Juno 60s. The differences in sound are subtle. The infamous filter in the 106, the 80017 chip, is actually the VCF and VCA chips of the 60 combined in one chip. DCOs on both are identical.

Re: Multitimbral Analog?

The MKS-50 is a great place to start with analog. It's the most reliable and most plentiful of the MKS series. It can be set to any midi channel, and it's fairly easy to navigate the menus. Sysex is excellent. If you get one, don't worry about the PG-300 controller. The MKS-50 happens to be the only...

Jazzy Chords and Synth Pop

Work in progress - something I worked out on Band in a Box last night. The chords are Band in a Box saved as midi and reopened in Cakewalk. I then sent it to my Roland MKS-70 on a patch called PolyBrass 1. The bass (first part only so far) is my MKS-50. Drums are loops. I haven't done anything jazzy...

Re: Random Analog Transmissions... 8 tracks & counting...

Good recording (Monopoly SH2.) I have trouble getting all the analog punch when converting wav files to mp3. Still, it's the only way to share music online. The whistling filter sounds remind me of something I did with my old Juno 106 (before it died.) I'll revisit and listen to your other tracks so...

Re: syndae - podcast on fine electronic music

Huge thanks. I quite like podcasts - especially about music. I'll download and listen in a few minutes.

Re: Sands Of Time, a Fairlight song

Very nice. That so 80s sounding (which, btw, I miss dearly.) Where'd you get the samples?

Thanks

Re: KORG DW-8000 users

Hey all, long time no post. Anyway, I just found out that Goodwill has an online auction site. The only synth currently listed is a Korg DW-8000. However, it's local pickup only - Indianapolis, IN. http://www.shopgoodwill.com/viewItem.asp?ItemID=4395558 Maybe someone near Indianopolis will get it.

Re: End of production for KORG OASYS?

The OASYS will always be a great synth, but it served mainly as an R&D platform for synths to follow. Korg has been on a roll with all kinds of interesting products, most of which can trace their technology to the OASYS. And Korg must certainly know how hard it is to sell an $8000 synth during a rec...

I listened to the whole song, and I think it sounds really cool. However, why is it called Linus and Lucy? Or is that the name of your band? Not much info on the music hosting site.

A Short, TD-ish Song

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_so ... ID=6705472

Trying to sound Tangerine Dreamish. Main sequence is Roland MKS-30, phased synth is Akai AX73 running through a Sony DPS-V55, and percussive sounds are from a Yamaha TX802.

I have an AX73. It's definitely VCO, very musical, but needs a good 10 minutes of warm up before it's in tune (even with the auto tune.) Nice pads, excellent basses, and wild sounds only VCOs can produce. Compared to a PolySix, the AX73 is brighter on top, and not as warm in the mids. Bjork used an ...

Re: Synths the Big 3 should release ^.^ (photoshoppers welco

so nothing really excites me from the big 3 at the moment.. Can't one of them just drop the analog bomb and get this party started? DSI has the PolyEvolver hybrid and the P'08 analog. Moog owns the analog monophonic world. Boutique makers have all kinds of cool stuff. At least Alesis took a chance ...
