The XS looks nice. There is only one thing bothering me, the 12db filter. I hope it's going to be an awesome sounding 12db filter. i would have prefered more pole selection. Like the ability to swith to a 2, 3 and 4 db filter. But it may to much asking anyway. There are like 600 examples up at the ...

I just went through most of my recently-acquired Prophecy's presets tonight. A good 80% of them had something to offer. I might need a Z1 just to get the poly. Fantastic little synth.

A loud, angry example This patch is feeding back from about three different locations, is being run through distortion, and is being furthur distorted by clipping the converters. I could have trashed it even more if I had turned the output hack on. I could have trashed it even more than that by tur...

I think the JP-8080 took me less time than any other synth to know that I liked it. First time running I loaded up a preset, started tweaking at random to test functionality, and every change I made took it in a new direction that still sounded great. A particularly stupid monkey could whip up a gre...

Thanks! I was looking for that G1 notch filter patch the other day, but I had forgotten what it was called so I didn't get very far.

Busted ribbon controller on a Prophecy

Picked up a Prophecy for over the weekend and found out the ribbon controller only works some of the time after I got it home. Seems like moving the log controller up and down jostles the ribbon into and out of working condition. I'm wondering if I should bring it in to a tech or return it. Any idea...

All of the Ion's features coming in at the Ion's price point is a major feat. The Ion hit the sweet spot in price/performance, price/interface and price/bells&whistles.
