This thread certainly does make ya do some thinkin'. My current space only allows for 3-4 synths in use at one time, so I can relate. My current and attainable goal for PRIMARY gear: Acces Virus B (have) Nord Lead (hunting) Alesis Ion (shipping early spring, no late spring, no early fall, wait no, l...

Re: Novation K Station

But although it is bought, i'd like to hear what this forum thinks about the KS, in order to get more excited for the arrival :D I've got a KS4 that I'm rebuilding and from my experience so far, I think Novation makes some great stuff. I am actually considering one of the 25 key units they make as ...

Have a CompAct10 & swear by it. It'll take anything you can throw at it.

I'll have to agree with one of the Novations, as well. I haven't got much for comparison, but I love the KS4, and the X-Station is supposedly built on that concept. Between the synth engine and the keyboard, that gets my vote. I'm actually considering the X-Station 25 for my mobile ops. That and a c...

I've never used any mini keys other than on toys, and when it comes to playing, It's not for me. I can stumble through, but it's not something I'd want to play regularly.

I've got pretty big fingers/hands, so I double-key a lot on minis. I can, however reach across 1+ octaves on an standard board.

vast majority of my percussion is single-hit samples i've found online dropped directly into a sonar audio track and cut/copy/pasted into a beat. usually layered and processed to the point it sounds little like the original samples. so... none of the above? This is pretty much what I'm looking at r...

Question for a KS4/5 Owner

I'm currently rebuilding my KS4, and in the process of replacing the power switch, I didn't take note of which way the old one came out. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me which way "On" is. If you are standing in front of the keyboard and turn the unit on, does go right or left. I think it's right...

I'm telling you...the closest thing, without sampling and all in one box, is the EMX-1. Thanks for the input JS. I wasn't sweeping your post aside the first time you mentioned it. Just didn't see any way (from pictures) that there would be any fast way to access a specific part. Umm, either hold th...

Sounds good Jambo. Really has a similar sound to Frampton's. 8)

I like the concept. I'll have some tinkering to do this weekend, I guess. :)

Uh, P2500? I got nuthin'. :? Is that Proteus? If so, I'll have to do some learnin'. Plus, they're just out of my range (going by the 'winning means more than getting a good deal' eBay pricing). So far, I think the closest things I've found are the MC-505 & the Quasimidi 309. Granted, they are non-sa...

The NEKO looks like fun, indeed. But my target price range is $200-400, not $2,000-4,000. :shock: Besides, I'm looking for the hands-on control. I like to noodle with the software, but I'd rather have the knobs & sliders at my fingertips. I actually have a Virus B, so getting the capabilitites of th...

Thanks for all of the input so far. Sampling isn't much of a requirement for me if I can edit the dynamics of even a small library of preprogrammed drum sounds. I forgot that the Redrum even had the ability to load samples, actually. I'm at work and am just going on memory. It's the interface that r...

I'm actually not looking for an all-in-one solution. Just individual MIDI components that have interfaces like those in reason. i.e. Subtractor = MS2000, Radius, KS Rack or JP-8080. I'm specifically looking for a drum machine at this point, but any other items that people can note would be interesti...
