I also could not get the mp3 link to work in the original post, can anyone else get it to work?

It looks like the string filter is the grandfather of the current Moog Murf pedal!

Moog's expertise is in discrete circuits, not in the "synth in a chip" are that Dave Smith has pioneered. This means that the Moog would definitely cost much more than the P08. I am not familiar with the Andromeda architecture to comment on the Moog cost vs Alesis, but offshore labor does help to ke...

If you want something that has the real deal vintage analog sound, the ARP Pro-Solosit and Pro DGX come to mind, as they are analog and have presets, but very limited filer control (just cutoff frequency). They are also pre-midi, and I do not think that you can easily add midi to these boards. Somet...

this is my first Moog, and now, my favorite analog. My ARP Solus is now neglected. I also have a Solus, and I love the fact that I can instantly change any parameter by adjusting a slider. Having only one knob per synth section seems like a big limitation, but not as large as the 80's and 90's synt...

The only Pitch to CV stuff I've seen are for modulars. There are Pitch to CV synths such as the Korg X911, Roland SPV355 and the Moogerfooger pedal. Which Moogerfooger pedal? The Freqbox does not turn pitch into a control voltage, but will sync the frequency of the internal oscillator to the frquen...

Pitch to CV

Has anyone found a way to successfully convert pitch to Control Voltage (CV). Specifically, I want soemthing that I can plug my bass guitar into and control my ARP Solus or another older mono synth. I know that there is the Analogue Systems R-35 External Source Processor Module available, but how we...

Thanks for the info, I finally read the manual and realized that I needed to move the filter cutoff slider to the bottom. I found that I could use my Roland EV-5 and Moog EP-1 Expression pedals, but I found the EV-5 more useful, as it has a knob on the side to set the bottom of the range. I also had...

ARP Solus Footpedal

Hi, I am the new owner of an ARP Solus and I would like to know what footpedal can be used to control the filter frequency, especially as this slider does not seem to be working the best on my keyboard. Also, has anyone used the Moogerfooger CP-251 with this keyboard? It looks like the CP-251 could ...
