Re: Prophet 6

Another superb video, Marc. I think the unison mode sounds brilliant. It is the way an analog synth's unison mode is "supposed" to sound. The phase-locked thunk of the Juno-106 has its musical place, but it's a very artificial sounding. The P6 is one of the best sounding synths I've heard in a long ...

Re: New Elka Synthex?

If they are indeed using original parts, I wonder if they have tested them? What are the defect rates? That seems like an awfully risky approach. I have no interest in paying $3k for a synth made up of components that have been sitting in a warehouse for 30 years.

Re: Greetings From Yamaha USA Pro Music Customer Support

I'd like to see a knobby FM 'board. I was digging on the concept art from a year ago of 3 new synths from Yammy (FM, VA and Phys Mod), but would prefer to have at least 4 octaves, not 3. Same here. Something like the DX200 in 3 or 4 octave keyboard format (Without the sequencer and drums to save on...

No need to get all butthurt over it :D Most of this is just good-natured ribbing from cynical synth nerds.

Enjoy the laughs and take it easy. 8-)

Re: 808 State - In Your Face

Zoinks! I was being silly but thanks anyway for the background on the vocal sample. Didn't know that was where it was from... Never saw any of Cooke's shows but I've read some interesting pieces about him.

Re: 808 State - In Your Face

Great tune. Excellent album.

The anti-American sentiment of "In Your Face" offends me though.

Re: Programming TB3 from daw

Program a pattern then play it into your DAW and study the data in the editor. Is there legato? Controller data?

MIDI Quest is unbelievably buggy. I avoid that software at all costs, but occasionally its a necessary evil.

Re: Footswitch for Korg Volca series

Volcas do not support pattern change via midi. A serious shortcoming.
