I know what you mean. Some have captured the sound somewhat, but the Clavinets are definately in a class of their own. I have a physically modelled variant in DSP, and 2 sample libraries, and 2 VSTi's and they all fall short. I believe that to sample that instrument a real Clavinet technique is need...

Multi-Timbral Beast

http://www.spacef-devices.com/dacore/in ... &Itemid=43

Check out my newest acquisition.

This requires the Scope DSP Platform.

I can run this right along side of my VSTi's like FM8.

GVI's, K2's, and VSTi's + Scope and Bidule = Synth Heaven.

Solderman is right on about his description. I own a few FAT BASTARDS and have used them for years. Only use 2 analogs live these days, unless I go back out with somebody worthy, and of course, w/ a road crew. :lol: I recently heard the emulation on a friends DAW, and it was done well. It however wi...

How about that nifty pitch bend that K.C.and the Sunshine band used? :roll: It was definately unique. I had the D6 way back when and still can't get a decent VSTi's to replace that. I have been told that the release envelopes are important. Sure, as long as there are 240 of them or so. The way you c...

GMedia's MTron

GMedia's MTron was suppose to put my ancient Gigastudio samples of Melotrons to rest. Sonic Implants did a great job but the MTron has much more content and options. My problem is that I can't get my VST host to recognise it. I am using Forte and Bidule, but prefer using Bidule until I get a better ...

VSTi's Galore

Thought I'd brag a little about my hardware upgrade. I have always used Scope DSP based cards so my CPU power was never that important. But when Gigastudio 3 came out I needed some extra juice for VST FX, and Gigapulse. So I got a Supermicro P4SCT+II / 3.4EE Northwood and it worked great. Then came ...

Damn You're Right, It's In Color. Since I have been using the Scope Platform I have applied their amazing routing scenarios into everyday life, and obviously had too much Jager after the gig. Since it's cold outside now 35 degrees F in Las Vegas, I simply re routed my windshield washer line from my ...

Congradulations, Having an OB-X my only suggestion is to buy a spare battery, Curtis chipset, and voice card if possible. Then you can play it for years. I can emulate the polyphonic sounds of vintage synths on my Scope DAW's quite easily thanks to Creamware, and certain 3rd party developers like Jo...

I live in Lake Tahoe and actually make my greens down here in LV, but up on the slopes we have a drink called the Chip Shot. It's a big mug of coffee, w/ Bailey's, Tuaca, and a s**t load of whip cream w/ acherry on top. By the time the drinks done, you bite the booze soaked cherry, get back on the s...

XPander's are going for a couple large, and 12's are around 3 to 4 large depending on their condition and serial number. Mine are in those heavy a*s Anvils, from when I had a road crew and management. I really gained alot of respect for those guys when I started moving my own rig around. :roll: Actu...

Just think of it as your future. Nice job Carbon111, thanks for helping out John @ NAMM. :lol: If it helps out here, I have used Solaris in it's DSP form for a few years, and it's a very FAT BASTARD. One can make this beast do whatever is in your head. Think of the old Russian movie Solaris ( Black ...

I can say to the gent asking about analog Oscillators w/ Wave Oscillators. I have used Solaris for a few years now and it is the finest synth ever made in the virtual world. 900 + parameters. I have several presets where Wave and CEM's are combined that are truly unique sounding. Kind of like evolvi...

Well if these synths make people happy, they'll really like John Bowens Solaris.

I am sure anyone who hears, sees, or plays it will beg, borrow, or steal to get one.

I expect a few days from now the threads here will come alive with remarks on it.

The FM8 finally has the sound to replace a TX816 on stage. FM7 was your basic thin " CPU conservative " VSTi. Somebody at NI fixed that so I will be purchasing it now. FM7 was just too thin and tinny for my taste. In all honesty VSTi's are starting to approach DSP quality, and even certain hardware ...
