Thanks for your reply, and I can see your point but you can get them - Live, for instance, does do it but unfortunately has a bug and does it horribly. Cubase VST can act as sync slave whilst outputting midi to other synths and following song position, but again it's pretty ropey. So ideally I'm wa...

Is the sequencer from the original MPC60 pretty much the same as in the other MPC's?

I personally found Reason as a complete studio often more intuitive and efficient to use than any groovebox workstation or hardware set up but the synths sounds were sadly not upto scratch. I then originally redesigned my studio to be a dedicated softsynth set up after hearing the Arturia Moog Modul...

I can tell the difference with softsynths in 24bit 44.1khz and its very noticable in 96khz on Sonar especially in the high end but this also depends on what you’re listening with. There’s lots of technical jive about the real world deficiency’s of 16bit sound like being slightley flat in the lower d...

I own a Regalwerk which has a similar engine to a Schaltwerk but is limited to simple note, length and velocity but I would also like to know how exactly things are implemented on the Schalt as you have access to all the steps in all 8 rows at once. The Regal is more a production tool but the Schalt...

Replies: 63
Views: 24448

I’ve been tempted with the Ion in the past but the opinions regarding the sounds have been mixed, some say it’s the best VA around with a huge programming potential and some say only the Moog filter sounds half decent and it has cheap sounding DA converters. I think for the price they’re very good f...

If you're after somthing fun and easy with an on board ananlogue step sequencer then a cheap MS2000. If you want something with a little depth then an Ion. If you want something easy thats multitimbral with FX for a complete arrangements then a maybe a Nova. If you want something cheap that sounds g...

I think its quite amazing that you can now pretty much get a nice little recrding setup just using your home PC a half decent soundcard and public domain software. Its only a matter of time before someone makes a classic album using free software alone. 10yrs ago I was saving my all pennies to get a...

If its the KVR site you've looked at then there is a lot of trashy Synth Edit freebies which have a similar look but little to do with in sound regarding what they try to be. Arturia's Moog Modular has a very close sound to a real Moog (especially the filter) and I found the Gmeida Oddity sounded ve...

I use simple home made oxygen free cables with cable and jacks from Maplins with no hiss from the cables whatsoever and that includes a pair of 4m stereo line cables from my AN1X so the problem must be interference from a nearby source (PC perhaps) or dodgy equipment. I think you’re money will be wa...
