its not that i want/need to upgrade. its a GREAT price for a MPC1000 and i figured i would look into what it can do for me that the 2000 cant. it would mean an end to SCSI and ZIP drives, and i would get digi outs and USB connections (pros), but i have seen on here that the pads just are not the sam...

MPC 1000/2000

i own a MPC2000 (original) and its the greatest piece of gear i own. its the center of my MIDI studio and i know it inside and out. i found a great deal on an MPC1000. i could not sell my 2000 and still have a good deal on the 1000. i have never had the chance to use the 1000, but its my understandi...

copying on the korg ea-1 and er-1

so i bought these little gems and i totally dig em. super easy...super fun...and, while i own better sounding synths, they inspire me cause i dont have to work so hard... that said, i feel like an idiot. there is a copy function to copy parts from one pattern to another, but for the life of me i can...

thanks all...i bought both and i like them. very simple and VERY easy. i am sure i will have fun with them, but until they prove themselves, they will most likely not be in the starting lineup. i do like the fact that the EA is a modelled VCO-VCF-VCA type deal. much more fun then the MC303. thanks f...

electribes

i read a lot of good things about the electribes on this forum, but there are bad points being made, too. i have found both the EA1 and the ER1 for $200 ($100 each). i know thats a good price, but are they worth it as solid synths or just kick-around gear? i am sure i will get them, but i dont want ...

the best part about sampling is that there are no rules. i have sampled ice getting crushed with a rolling pin for snare hits and loose change hitting the countertop for hats. whatever you can think of can be done. i often record to my minidisc and then import it to the PC for editing (or right into...

AX60 / SQ80

so i just picked up an akai AX60 and ensoniq SQ80 for cheap. i really could not be happier as i have been looking for an AX60 or AX80 for a few years now. both are in good condition and sound great. i read of a factory reset for the SQ80, and found it online, but i cant figure out if the reset wipes...

$250 seems a bit high for a BSR. i bought mine about three months ago for $100. just sayin... i have never played the SBS, but my BSR takes over most bass duties now. i also use it for some nice leads. most of my gear is VA or digital/hybrid, so the analog sound of the BSR adds alot to what i do. it...

i also find the hardware, any hardware, to be more "plug and play". i plug in the MIDI cables, set the channel, and GO. none of this trying to find the interface and set the channel and waiting for the PC to stop locking up bullshit. damn i hate my PC. and the mac aint much better...

i was using the MMT8 for a while in the early 90s. switched over to cakewalk 3.0, which was (is) great. after that i went from software to software looking for what the MMT8 and cakewalk could do, ie: rock solid sequencing with no fluff. didnt find it. logic, cubase, even my atari st...nothing did i...

felis is right. i have both the micron and the microQ and together they make a great pair. the Q is a bit darker and richer and the pads and bass are great. the micron is a brighter synth, IMO. they are both easy to program, and alot of fun. i grew up learning programing on the DX series and a D10. ...
