The ping ponging is most likely a delay line. If you listen carefully to songs from that era, you'll hear direct synth in one channel and delyed signal in the other. "Jump" has a short delay line that fattens up the sound. Many Oberheim synths have the ability to pan each voice either with hardware...

What's wrong with M-Audio MIDI keyboards? I think the Axiom series keyboards are quite good.

Re: Talk Box?

I'm about to buy a talk box to do some Daft Punk style vocals. What do you guys recommend as a synth sound to do the vocals through? My main synth is a Nord Lead 2x. I believe they used a vocoder. You can maybe buy a MicroKorg for a vocoder? I think I saw a guy using the MicroKorg vocoder to replic...

Very nice sound and demo. I like it. I saw a CS-60 for pretty cheap on eBay a few weeks ago, but I was rather hesitant to buy one because I hear their spare parts are pretty rare.

Roland Polyphonic Keyboard w/ Oberheim OB-1?

Hey guys. I am wondering if the Roland 100m 184 4v Polyphonic Keyboard Controller can connect to the Oberheim OB-1 via CV (does the OB-1 have the same CV input as the keyboard's CV output)? I mean, I know it can connect, but is the OB-1 compatible with the keyboard? It'd be sweet to make the OB-1 in...

Oh, you're one of the bluesynth guys! I've spent many hours browsing through those reviews when I was bored :) Thanks for doing what you do, I know of no other review site that has so many unique samples and pictures aswell. I always refer to BS when ppl ask about some synth. Hope it'll be updated ...

Awesome. I kind of want an A6, personally. Demos I have heard from various members makes me drool over one, but I dunno if I want to spend my money on one...

Thanks for the replies. I was wondering because it's so difficult to find an OB-X and I see a lot more OB-1s and I was wondering if I can just multitrack the OB-1 to get OB-X-like pads. I might just jump on the OB-1 if I can find one at a decent price...

Oberheim OB-1 = actual monophonic version of an OB-X?

I hear about the OB-X a lot, but not much about the OB-1. Is it actually a monophonic version of the OB-X, or is it a different sounding synth? Thanks.
