Re: Modular synth question (powering a single and few modules)

choose a format- each format has its big companies. browse muffwiggler , lots of discussion about all things modular there. i'd avoid a simple midi-to-cv module, stuff like Kenton makes has tuning & scaling adjustments on the CV end of things so you wont have to adjust the synth itself for optimum t...

im looking for something that's all-in-one- a software sampler that samples. i think Mach 5 has the same non-sampling abilities of Kontakt.

Re: software sampler for the mac that actually samples?

IMHO for serious sampling, you need to do computer based editing with something like Bias Peak, or Sound Forge or WHY. EQ, topping tailing, looping etc. i definitely intend to use software, just hoping for something with a one-stop workflow. right now i'm sampling into Digital Performer & exporting...

software sampler for the mac that actually samples?

are there any worthwhile software samplers for the mac that actually sample? i use Kontakt but- like most popular soft "samplers" i'm familiar with- it can't sample. so i'm looking for an all-in-one solution if a good one exists.

Re: LinnDrum or Yamaha RX5?

i've got a LinnDrum & an RX17. if you don't plan to circuit-bend them for better control, i'd just buy a Korg ESX & find samples of them on the internets. i'd love to do the crazy tuning mod to the LinnDrum- it's a great way to make it sound like old school Prince (LM-1 style).

Re: Pricing for a Jupiter 6 with Europa kit & Moog Prodigy?

i sold my J6 w/Europa on eBay for about $1400 earlier this year. the last one to sell on eBay went for about $1300 without Europa. from what i've seen, the Europa upgrade does not increase the value very much, particularly considering how much Europa costs. with the Prodigy, i'd say condition plays ...

Re: Your Synth Setup is now Extinct!

oh, this is a good one. i'm really content with where i'm at right now but here's some realistic choices: minimoog model d's -> arp 2600s Xpander -> Matrix 12 (well, that's cheating... how about the Andromeda) Buchla 200e -> Modcan Series B. or Wiard. or Serge. Prophet VS -> PPG Wave 2.3 Radias -> I...
