Re: Pro One or Prodigy?

I have both. The Pro-One is more versatile and aggressive, but I use my Prodigy just as much because it is very easy to get a good sound out of it. A lot cheaper too!

Re: Pro-One

In 2008. I bought one on eBay for $700. In Sweden, they usually sell for $1200-1600

Re: MiniBrute vs CS-10/15

The MiniBrute is capable of some really aggressive sounds. The CS-15 is not as capable in that arena, but has such a vast array of functionality that that should be taken into consideration. Despite having similar filters, they're really quite different. The CS-15 is more powerful, but not as edgy....

Re: The great thread of electronic/synthesizer soundtracks

I've been following this thread for a while. Lots of my favorite composers mentioned and some EXCELLENT info from Micke. Thanks for that. I do kind of a similar thing with my synths if you wanna check it out http://soundcloud.com/forced-opinion http://matthewakers.bandcamp.com My LP that I finished...

Re: MiniBrute vs CS-10/15

I loved my CS-15, but judging from the demos the minibrute shares more character with the MS-20 rather than the CS series, especially in filter character.

Re: Korg Mono/Poly vs SCI Pro One

Question is...if you own a P5(like myself), would you need a Pro-One? I'm WTB a MP currently, thinking I had the Prophet sound covered, perhaps I've missed something. I use them both together a lot. With different mod sections and no patch memory you end up doing completely different sounds. And ev...

Re: The great official thread of the Prophet-5

Does anyone know the market value of P5 atm? How much do they fetch?

Re: Korg Mono/Poly vs SCI Pro One

Yesterday I got my Pro-One back from service with new keyboard bushings. It is a joy to play once again and no other mono synth is so mix-cutting and THICK (apart from the Minimoog)

Re: Anyone have the real Korg-Polysix?!

I've had mine for at least five years. Changed the battery and the bushings. Works great, doesn't need MIDI.
Has more of a 70's sound than the typical 80's synth vibe.

Re: New Oberheim Xpander/Matrix-12 real time editor

But the Xpander and Matrix-12 already have hands on control, so what's the use of this?

Re: Your Arturia secrets please...

The Jupiter-8V is suprisingly close to the real thing. And with a good MIDI controller it's very fun to create sounds with.
Aside from buying Spark pretty soon, I'm really keen on the Yamaha CS-80V, to get those soft late 70's poly brass sounds...

Re: NI FM7 or FM8

With my new Roland A-500 Pro MIDI controller, the FM8 is my favorite softsynth along with Arturia JP-8V.
To be able to tweak FM sounds with a hardware controller, based on patches from the DX-7 and FM7 library and other downloadable famous FM sounds has made FM synthesis much more fun!
