Where's the video of the 700 on Youtube??? I've only seen Buchla RocknRoll and some bloke and his Music Easel.

I've got an mp3 of some radio show where Don runs through the 400. That sounds pretty incredible, I imagine the 700 would be more so.

That's the impression I got from the hundreds of reviews I've been reading. Also looks incredibly sexy! Damn it though, wish I actually had a chance to play any of these synths before buying. Would be mighty annoying saving up all that moolah to get it and hate it. Doubt that would happen though wit...

Yeah, I've allways been tempted by the Devo but I keep telling myself I should save up for the MEK as I'm sure to get more fun out of it with the more knobs and whatnot.
Though I'm sure chaos can still ensue quite easily with the desktop.

Cheers,

This is what I suspected.

Thanks for the info, so you'd reccomend just getting both? :D

Haha yeah. I just realised I basically didn't ask anything in particular. :) It was more just about which one is capable of more sonic madness. I know the Monomachine is leaning more towards beat-driven styles but it seems to have some pretty incredible potential in the ambient and noise department....

Just bumping this thread to ask how y'all would compare the Monomachine with the Evolver line?
Seeming as they both appear designed to make noises of all odd sorts than just your usual "phat" basses and whatnot.

Any pros and cons worth mentioning between the two?

Oops. :oops: Sorry about that.

What's a better one to use?

Latest development is I'm thinking about getting new wood ends made for the beast as these old ones are pretty chipped. Shouldn't be too hard I imagine.

I don't have a camera at the moment so I've only got the photos that the bloke selling it had. She is one big beast though, 25 kg of modular love! http://img442.imageshack.us/img442/6683/7c2712ce3.th.jpg http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/2152/8d7812jl8.th.jpg Yeah, I'm in Launceston actually.

So from what I've read (and probably forgotten) the P2500 has super-dooper filters plus a whole lot more. But just wondering about, probably applies to the Kurz as well, are ring-mod and/or bitcrush type effects at all possible? Also just nasty digital noise (in a good way)? I imagine that sort of t...

Arggh! Looks like my grand plan for one do-it-all digital synth isn't going to work!
I could just get the rack models and pretend that I don't have a room full of synths. :(

You know, I had a sneaking suspicion about that, write after I posted it. :( Maybe I'll just have to scrap the sampling idea. I just read the SOS review of the P2500 and they made it out to be quite awesome too. Also listening to those samples you put up over and over. Sounds pretty darn impressive!...

And apparently if you have an Ultra Sampler, you can load in your own samples. Hmmm, sounding interesting.

Cool. Thanks again. So the big question is, which is more tedious to use. The Kurzweils or the Protei? Those examples sound incredible though. I think I'd see a PC editor as a bit beside the point as the main reason I'm looking at digital hardware is their interfaces, to get away from this damn comp...

OK. Just wondering if you have any mp3's of the P2500 doing what it does best?

As I said I don't mind menu-diving as long as it's worth it!
