Re: Ditch the presonus interface or ??

I guess it depends what you do with your computer, if youre into all the ridiculously heavy duty mastering plugins and huge sample libraries etc you might want a newer computer, but if you just use a set of plugins that doesnt cost the earth in CPU use then something like an 07/08 macbook would do t...

Re: Alternative of buying an ER1 and EA1 for 300 dollars...?

the mkII is worth getting by the way, it gives you cross mod instead of ring mod... which opens up a whole new pallet of sounds.

Re: recording my ER-1

what i recommend doing is just making a soudn using the er-1 then sampling it into the computer as an individual hit. You can't multitrack into the computer because it only has a stereo pair of outputs - you could pan say the bassdrum all the way left and the rest all the way right though, or solo o...

Re: Australian Music Gear Prices (Revisited..)

are you including import duty in your calculations? There's no import duty on items below $1000, and often things that are over that come through without any either. There are quite a few places in Australia where you can get things at competitive prices to the US, equinoxoz for example sells modul...

Re: Emu Xtreme Lead

I would wait until you get it before buying any extra roms - often times you will find there is actually an extra rom already installed in emu gear.

Re: Print your own parts for the OP-1

I am really hoping they come up with some kind of printable conductive material - that would really revolutionise DIY circuit printing and such..

This is a good start though!

Re: How to get sounds like this? Link included.

it will take time to learn, like anything, but the electribes are somewhat simpler than alot of things, so a good starting point. Before you buy the ER-1 you should consider the ES-1 too. The ER-1 makes sounds through synthesis (except the hihats, crash and clap which are recordings of real sounds) ...

Re: Australian Music Gear Prices (Revisited..)

yeah, I guess it is the wholesalers... I suppose there are probably still alot of people that do buy from local retail, for the convenience or just habit or whatever.. but to someone like me who's grown up with ebay/etc, it just seems crazy!

Re: gear on or off?

I would say turn them off. It shouldn't happen mostly, but in one of my cheapo sketch keyboards it died after i accidentally left it on for a week, just because it wasnt designed well.

Australian Music Gear Prices (Revisited..)

OK, Given the current exchange rate, right now I could buy a single synth from a retail outlet in america, import it to australia, and then sell it for less than retailers sell for here and still make a profit - and this is not a sudden spike in the currency value, its been steady for a long time no...

Re: Analog Drum Machine Question

spark isn't analog, or even standalone hardware for that matter - its a controller for a computer

Do you want to be able to alter the sounds? Or is a fixed tone drumkit OK?
