Re: Midi interface/Patchbay

Too bad M-audio has no intention of supporting XP x64 and seems to have problems getting out drivers for vista/7 64-bit too.

Midi interface/Patchbay

I want a midi interface with standalone patchbay functionality (mainly merging) as well. I don't really need a full 8 i/o device, something like 4-5 would suffice. However, it needs to have XP x64 drivers, and windows 7 drivers would be a nice bonus as well. What are my options? Motu micro express? ...

Re: I need help figuring out the synths this guy uses

Yamaha RS7000, EMU Command Stations, Akai MPCs, Elektron Monomachine and the Alesis MMT8 are usually the most recommended hardware sequencers around here.

Re: Novation SuperNova II vs KS

The KS series was improved over the K-station, it has a multimode filter, more waveforms and it's multitimbral.

Re: Novation SuperNova II vs KS

The oscillators on the Supernovas are more flexible than they appear; even though it only have saw and square/pulse waveforms, it has the "hardness" (Or was it softness?) parameter that is like an individual low pass filter for each oscillator, and each oscillator also have it's own slave oscillator...

Re: What good 61 keys synth under 5/6 kg ?

Novation X-station 61 and Yamaha AN1X are both around 7.5kg.

Also worth noting the Yamaha CS1X and CS2X at just 5.7kg.

Re: Would it be possible to mod the RS7000?

If one could somehow make patch memory separate of pattern memory, that would be a nice addition too.

Re: Your synths and their function/place within your setup

RS7000: Sequencing, pads, drums, sequences, any synth sounds I might need to fill out a track.
Sirius: Basses, leads, pads, drums
DX200: Basses, E-pianos, bells, leads, plucked string type sounds
CZ5000: Bells, leads... this synth needs further exploration...

Re: mono or poly evolver?

MEK+PER seems ideal if you want a PEK but is short on space. Although I think the PER has been discontinued?

Re: GAS --- Just bought 2 new pieces... POLYMORPH & SIDSTATION

I love my Sirius, but I believe the Polymorph is a step up in synthesis options? I'd love to try one!
