Hey Breitt, Mind sharing more of your thoughts on the 999 vs the MD? Thx The Machinedrum has the most meticulous interface of any drum machine made. Its push-button encoders control animated knobs and allow one to mold nearly every aspect of drum modelling conceivable. The parameter lock capabiliti...

Don't tell my fellow GASoholic sponsor, JSRockit, but I broke down and (re)purchased an Xbase 999. Just got it thumping again last night, and this is definitely my best repurchase of all time. I'm getting ready to sell my tr-909, which I still love, but its lack of tweakability ultimately bored me. ...

The Moog Voyager is an excellent example of a synth that demands to be manufactured in both formats. I would have never spent $3100.00 on ANY keyboard synth, particularly since I don't play keyboards. However, the Rack Mount Edition "only" set me back $1800.00. Aside from the price, however, the int...

Nord Lead 2X Out Mode settings question

I posted this question on one of the Clavia forums, but only received an invitation to a gay biker rally, so I thought I'd have better luck here. I had previously used Out Mode 3.Ab on my 2x so I would always have stereo sounds. I liked this for awhile, but eventually the alternating speaker effects...

I`m in need of a MIDI sequencer, mostly for live use with my MB33 (and of course other synths to)... Been thinking about "Doepfer MAQ16/3" and the "Future Retro Mobius"... Need general tips on which one that is best for "on the fly" editing... I was in the same quandary about a month ago. I almost ...

i just thought that was how they display funds in the EU... using commas where the US uses periods, and vice-versa.... but i only guessed that from seeing it out there so much. and i've never had a problem with it during any of my german transactions. those sneakers for 3,75? they ended up costing ...

Invoice from US to Germany not appearing correctly

I live in the U.S. and the winning bidder of an item I was selling lives in Germany. After he won the bid at $1,875.00, he sent me directly an e-mail requesting that I send him an invoice with the total amount including the $35.00 shipping and the optional $20.00 insurance. Ebay also sent me a reque...

I currently have a tr-909, which is the best of what I've used so far (Jomox 09, Elektron MD and Jomox 999). The Jomox 999 is far more capable than the tr-909 in terms of possibility and sonic adventurism, but I'm far more comfortable with the simple interface and realtime playability of the 909. No...
