In a brief moment of insanity while cleaning out a bunch of stuff in the basement I took my CZ-101 and donated it to the Salvation Army, still regret it too. I can only hope it might've made a difference in somebody's life who might not have had the opportunity otherwise. Back in the 80's I composed...

My first experience with midi was in 1985 with a Casio CZ101 so no I'm not expecting audio to go through midi. Believe it or not I've never used an Editor before.I guess I expected the keys on the editor to play just as an VSTi would although I know it hasn't it's own sound engine. :roll: I did rech...

Yamaha AN1X editor help

I just got a mint Yamaha AN1X off ebay and I recently installed the editor for it. My problem is I'm unable to get the midi to work as well as any sound from the small bank of patches already on it. I've checked my midi out and it works fine on my VSTi's in Tracktion and Cubase 4. I've set the midi ...

the real bass part is played by Louis Johnson. This is all I've been able to find so far: Credits Written, arranged and composed by Michael Jackson Produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson Lead and background vocals by Michael Jackson Drums by Leon "Ndugu" Chancler Bass by Louis Johnson Guitar b...

Did someone say beer and synths? two of my favorite things besides my lovely wifey who has been so patient over the years with my gear addiction. :D Good to see you back James. The content of your post made me think you had other things going on outside of here. I'm trying to figure out a way of dro...

mao I think part of the interest in the Solaris is because of the man behind it's creation. Anytime you get one of the Masters of synthesizer design coming out with a new synthesizer people get excited. It is because of the reputation of Bob Moog, Dave Smith and John Bowden synth players are ready t...

Dr Evil is a satirical portryal of Blofeld the villian in such movies as You only live twice. There were 3 Blofelds, Donald Pleasence to me is the one Dr Evil is the most like. Following with the James Bond theme Waldorf also has a new synth called Stromberg. Stromberg was the villian in the Spy Who...

Anybody else think the Bloefeld front page is lame? No I don't find it lame. I think it's refreshing they are taking a humorous approach in their initial marketing of the Blofeld. I think they're proud of this little baby and having fun with it, not bad for a company that was presumed dead. To me i...

I for once am excited over the re-emergence of Waldorf and it's release of new products. For many dark months it looked like the only way one would ever be able to get the Waldorf sound would be through the purchase of second hand gear. The idea of having Wave and XT wavetables at one's disposal in ...

Well just in case you never get any feedback I thought I'd let you know.

I wound up selling the XTK to Scott the sound design guy over on KvR.
Damn I miss that little orange beast.

Thanks guys I appreciate you clarifying that. I guess I was having flashbacks of the XTK voice expansion update. Whenever I see the words up to in a manufacturer's literature I start to read the fine print a bit closer. At any rate I miss my XTK and it's unique sound. This looks like it could fill t...

Did anyone catch the part where it says UP TO 25 VOICES?
I take that to mean to get 25 voices you will have to pay more to expand it. :(

Re: Help me figure out what VA synth to get

Here are some that I'm considering that are in my price range: Roland JP-8000 Korg MS2000 Korg Prophecy Roland SH-201 First I would suggest searching audio demos of any synth you are considering, this will help you decide if the sound of any particular synth will help you obtain the overall sound y...
