Re: Synth prices and inflation

I thought for years, analog mono synthesizers were undervalued. Almost like they were put in the same catagory as consumer electronics. It's old, and obsolete, so it shouldn't be worth much attitude. This actually started back when the DX-7 was introduced. When working musicians went to sell their o...

Re: I Dream of Wires

The director of IDOW, Robert Fantinatto, seems like an interesting fellow. Here are a few quotes about his views on IDOW from the net: The “dedicated and obsessive subculture” of modular synth fanatics across the world formed the inspiration for I Dream of Wires, said director Robert Fantinatto. Fan...

This thread needs more RA Moog modules.

Re: I Dream of Wires

Greetings from "that guy" in the 2nd trailer. Since it's hard to get a "feel" of my background and perspective from an 8 second clip, here is a brief rundown.. Paul, I thought the IDOW trailer was really laim. I would be pissed if I gave my time for a full interview about an instrument or modular, ...

Re: I Dream of Wires

Wow, you guys learning to play Moog 15's and 22 oscillator Moogs are making me feel like I'm a little slooooow. :D Seriously, it took me several months just to begin to learn the little subtleties in the Moog CP-3 mixer. Let alone all the other functions and various patching schemes, like patching t...

Re: Korg MS-20 Mini: Exclusive Revied by CreateDigitalMusic

Nice review, but I have to admit, I have never heard of a Hertz per Octave oscillator. "The MS-20 mini uses Hertz-per-octave analog control voltage." :lol: Guess they ment to write Hertz per volt. They might want to edit that review. Anyway, the mini MS-20 seems like Korg did a nice job of re-creati...

Re: What makes the Minimoog sound so good?

So I guess I can't just buy a couple oscillators, ADSR, VCA, and a ladder filter and hope it sounds like a Minimoog... Would be the other way around. If you had the right oscillators, ADSR, VCA and ladder filter, you would have what the minimoog was designed as a more affordable "mini" copy of. :lo...

Re: Synclavier in the wild!!!

They have some nice equipment there. A $12K Synclavier and a $40K Moog 2C. Nice to know the Synclavier still works. Guess the 9600 was the tapeless sytem? I still have my less expensive Synclavier II, with not nearly the amount of functions the 9600 had. Though it would have cost about $25K new, and...

Re: New Korgs

Not all keys are created equal, mini or regular sized. I've played crappy full size keyboards, and crappy mini keys. But Korg has gone the extra mile to improve mini keys on a few of their newer models. Got the chance to play a Korg MicroStation, and those mini keys were very nicely weighted with a ...

Re: The obsession for the Analog

Those are nice digital Synthesizer/Guitars, but I have to admit I like the analog ones built in the 60's/70's for nostalgic reasons. Must be the wood?Image

Try:
Moog Prodigy cap at Syntaur


I purchased an extra set and painted them to match the Minimoog colors. :lol:

Re: Arturia MiniBrute - analog monosynth

I just got my replacement. Only had it for a few mins, not as good as AGs vid but here: Thanks for posting. When I first watched that video, I thought the envelopes were broken. But after trying myself, I can repeat the same locked condition too. Had mine for several weeks and never noticed, but yo...

Re: Arturia MiniBrute - analog monosynth

P.S. Also: CZ, I'm glad you're still around. :) Yep, still around. Still have that PS-3100 too, thanks to someone's video demonstrating how cool it was. Remember seeing an add for those Korgs back in the late 70's with Kerry Livgren of Kansas asking "Where's the portamento". I didn't get the inside...

Re: Arturia MiniBrute - analog monosynth

Minibrute = Instant Classic!
If it wasn't for the MIDI and USB jacks on the back, this could have been made 30 years ago. ;)
