Re: Ugliest Synths?

How could you include the microwave xtk? It's beautiful! And the ARP quadra? Only three synths in this update I consider ugly, MAX, DK-80 and TQ-5, and only the TQ-5 is ugly in a bad way. That one is really ugly though. I've got a MAX, and while I love that lil' underrated bastard, completely agree...

Re: Ugliest Synths?

Hmm, dunno if I particularly agree w/ any of those, except for whatever version of the MoPho that is .. a prototype perhaps, but a fun read nevertheless. Never quite understood the aesthetic appeal (if any) of the CS-40m and 70m's, but to each their own. And I'd say the majority of Casio CTK's fill ...

Re: What synth have you bought more than once?

Ah yes, 1999, when people were claiming vintage prices were already too high. Come back $1200 JP-8.... Anyway, if you ever do a complete inventory of your "Polymoog Philharmonic," make sure you share please! Your collection alone will either validate or destroy the "Polymoogs break down if you look ...

Re: What synth have you bought more than once?

* Can't resist buying 707 and 727's when I see 'em decently priced. Cue the intervention ... * Recently bought a K3m in order to ditch the K3 board. Not convinced I really need either, though. * Synthasound x 2. Still unsure how that happened. * DDD-1 x 3. The cards, man. THE CARDS. * S-612 / MD280 ...

Re: Cheap alternatives to VOX or FARFISA?

As others said, you can likely get close w/ the DX-7. The trick to fake organs is just as much in the processing ... record it through an amp, give it air, add spring reverb, a dab of distortion, EQ to taste, etc. Props on sacrificing your other boards for starting a label, BTW. An underrated (and s...

Re: Midi knob box for Six Trak?

Yeah, the Behringer wouldn't be a bad choice. FWIW, I use a Peavey PC-1600x w/ my Max.
