I guess it depends what kind of sound I want on that moment... I want a really dark and deep pad, I go for my DW-8000. I know it's not a very high profile synth (like Jupiters and OB-Xs), but the sound is just warm and larger than most other synths I have or had . Clean an earie pads go to the Waves...

Memories... I got my first synth in 1983. Was a Korg Polysix.
Must have kept it for about 3 years.

I don't have it anymore. I almost bought one lately, but i'm putting my cash on a Prophet 600 instead (which i'm waiting for).

For sure i'm going to get another Polysix one day. With MIDI of course...

Of course, while in there check the battery. Below 2.5V change it (3V CR2032). The A/D Converter could be at fault. I'd check around and test capacitors and transistors while at it. I'll test the battery. I'm going to leave the capacitor resistance thing to pros like you. I have a few synths to hav...

Muted TX81Z...

Hi, I have this TX81Z that just stopped producing any sound. I can see it receives MIDI signals and all buttons are fine. Of course, the output is at max (in case someone asks...). It just stopped. Does anyone have any ideas? I know some synths and computers can do some strange things when the inter...

Re: my first hardware multitracked recording

Hey oscilik, got a question. I've been thinking for a while to record with a hardware multitracker instead of a computer. I was wondering how you find the experience, and if you had experience with a computer DAW, how do you compare? Thanks hey everyone. since i got my Yamaha AW4416 a couple of week...

How about organizing a road trip to Sherbrooke for a few guys with synths to repair? We would save a bunch on shipping...

I have a Windstar I could take 3 guy/gal and several pieces.

Could be amusing

Do you that to repair a TV, you only need a Professional High School Diploma? And that the so called synth techs have a college degree and many side studies. Also, that a synth tech is more apt to pin out a synth problem than a TV repair guy or the general electronics guy. Trust me on this, a bunch...

Thanks. I haven't found any around Montreal. I've been messaging with xonox, he mentioned you. But Sherbrooke is a little far. I live in Brossard, South-shore of Montreal. I have nothing to ship it with, and i'd rather go drop it off myself... I might contact you anyways if i don't find any solution...

Montreal/South-shore area tech needed for Wavestation EX

Hi, I'm looking for a tech that could do a good keyboard re-lubricating job as the keys are sort of ruff. According to what i found on the net, it's a very typical problem. This Wavestation has been used... and some buttons are also stubborn. I also have a few other keyboards that i will want to hav...

My main synth is a E-mu E64. And i mean synth. I don't play with loops and stuff. I program my own sounds and the synth engine in these machines is just amazing. Why use a hardware sampler? Because i'ts an instrument that i can put my hands on and touch. To me, using software synths is like having v...
