Re: The synthesisers used on Kanye Wests new album

Man... tough crowd. Let's hope none of us get really famous so we don't undergo the same type of scorn. After all, a lot of people are "talentless" relatively. Kanye could look at us knob-turning individuals and say we're not even playing the keyboard... and we can look at him sample digging and bea...

Re: The Triton moss board questions

Moss board is worth it imho. The Z1 is great, but I find editing much easier on the Moss Board in the Triton. I have both the Z1 and the Moss and I can't tell the sound difference at all, other than the difference in polyphony. I've got a Moss in my Extreme and rack... they're just that useful. The ...

It's just people living in the past who want to be Wakeman/Numan/Eno/Lemmy that think otherwise. I would like to any synth new or old try and hold a candle to the MS-20. I thin...

Re: DSI MoPho

Sounds very drony like the Evolver, which is a good and bad thing. Good because you get the suboscillator which gives it more low end, bad because it won't exactly replace the monosynths that we'd hope to replace it with, which aren't very drony at all.

Yeah... I still have both my R3 and MicroKorg. I bought the R3 to replace the MK, but realized they both sound different. The R3 is cleaner and smoother, but I don't love the sound nearly as much as the MK. However, the R3, in general is just a well laid out synth. Korg did a really good job with it...

R3 does everything better than the MicroKorg. The R3 actually has a 16 band vocoder and is every bit as equal to the intelligibility of the Korg Radias (which has one of the better vocoders on the market right now). Note that the vocoder on the R3 doesn't steal any polyphony as well (useful for biti...

Both are good.. but it depends on what you want. SH201 is good if you want the SuperSaw function as well as being able to customize your own Arps with arp editor for your computer. X-Station is good if you also want to double up as an audio interface. Although I heard the SH201 has an audio interfac...

It also has a decent Audio Interface with very little lag for being purely USB based. It's great for live use with a laptop because you don't have to bring your external Firewire or USB box anymore. Just use the audio interface. I feel its the best deal between the Xiosynth, Micron, and MicroKorg......

Noticed my locak GC was running Fusions at lower prices than usual at one point. Are they are any particular ones to get? Like any way to tell you got a newer version rather than an older version?

The GC rep said they were prone to failure.. hence the cheaper price. But I still want one.

Maybe those strings and voice patches were just poorly programmed. Do you have the original roms? If not, you can use a midi connection and upload the factory patches to your DX7 from MANY sites on the internet. Just google it. Then check to see if the factory patches do the same thing. The modulati...

Nice. Got everything to work by just superglueing the broken pieces of the keys that I found inside the chassis. The volume slider is a lot better now that I cleaned it but there's still a small bit of scratch in it. I ordered some cailube to fix it. I also got the DX100. It works perfectly. The onl...

Yeah. The MK1 has a noticeable hiss to it, but the DX7-II is much cleaner. However, some say the MK1 has a lot more bite to it... while the DX7-II is cleaner in sound.

Depends what kind of sound you're going for.

Both are excellent instruments, congratulations (word to the wise, though--a DX100 will not come close to replacing the DX7). I can't help you with those particular sounds as I'm not familiar with the songs, although I strongly recommend you spend some time here . By the way... thanks for the link....

Yeah I know. The DX7 was a great instrument. But I really only used like three sounds from it... as our band actually has two keyboardists in it. One handling all the samples/synth parts... and one handling all the real instruments parts (piano, strings, etc.). I kind of go in between playing actual...

You're right. That's why I'm selling my DX-7. I only really used the DX-7 for my talkbox. But I found a DX-100 to replace it with. The Micron is really awesome. But it's tedious having to switch in between all settings via one knob. I'm a newb... so I paid newb prices for both of my first synths. Bu...
