Re: Best electric pianos

Scarbee's are my favorites via Receptor.
I can then add whatever overlay or flavor of the day I like.
Here's the Rhodes w/ Sine Oscillators from Solaris.

Re: any good softsynth clonewheels?(hammond emulator)

Creamware B4000 ASB, or B2003. I would highly reccomend a Motion-Sound Pro3t Rotary to complete the emulation though.

Re: Keith Emerson 2008 synths?

Awesome, Glad to hear he's gigging again. Maybe he'll make it to the USA. He's responsible for my Modular sickness, and countless months of woodshedding 3 Fates, Tarkus, Trilogy, Take A Pebble, etc. Saw him when I had to have my mom drop us off back in '72. They sounded incredible. Sadly I saw them ...

Re: Ribbon controllers

That's a really nice looking CV ribbon. I wish there was a longer ribbon strip, I would buy it. I used the CS80's ribbon and really enjoyed it's length, that's history as I now use the ancient Expressionmate, not the new generic one, but the older model. It works great for my analogs as well as DSP ...

They are excellent VA's. I use their B4000 and a Motion-Sound Pro 3t. It sounds great, and when I played my old B3 and Leslie the only difference was the lack of wattage, which is easily reproducable by using the built in mics and direct outs. Creamware / SonicCore also has John Bowens creations in ...

Or any Oberheim 4 that matter. I have played a CS-80 for decades. It is not " FAT " by any stretch of the imagination, but it's Super BPF allows it to sit in a mix very well, and the PAT is superb and unique. But it wouldn't cut it in a live show where guitars are present. That's why I chose the Obe...

All In The Box Synth & Samplers

Sure, I could be more tasteful and use less of the PCM91 on Scarbee's Rhodes sample, but after paying a couple large 4 it back in the '90's, I prefer bathing in the greens I spent, and deep blue sound it is known 4. Bowen Synth Design has provided the soft synths. LSAD for the drum samples. Scope DS...

You won't cut through the power of the Guitar sounds w/ those cute little digital synths, monophonically speaking that is. I suggest a Studio Electronics SE-1X used. Why let the guitarists have all of the fun. That's the biggest sound for the budget constraints you face, and the strings and piano ca...

One thing we sometimes overlook is quality of the I/O's. First off, the demos posted here at the Z are the software variant using what many consider to be " Old " souncards, which are wav's converted to mp3. I can only imagine how much more powerful this synth will sound when the hardware is release...

Oberheim XPander is a tough customer to beat, but Solaris 5.0.6 BETA has added analog performance features that make it sound like a real FAT BASTARD. :lol:

Brotha' Man Crystalmsc, Were you reffering to the PlanetZ demo? If so, that is only the old software version I used which is in V5 BETA. I have used Solaris for a few years, since JBowen's DSP synths are very analog sounding. I can tell you this, everything I ever mentioned that I would like to see ...

Multi-timbrality 4 way is more than I will use. I will definately be using this like it was an OB-Xa. V5 of the software has really added some great features that can even fool some analog guys such as myself. But this ain't no one trick pony. I have custom made WAV's of the unique textures of the K...

Too many soft synths !! :lol: Wiard Mods are some FAT BASTARDS, Hat's Off 2U. On the reliability issue of the old guys, I agree, When I detune my cards they are quite stable as long as I don't add the Portamento amounts in excess. The beauty about Solaris's new V5 software is that it's takes the old...
