I don't gig or anything like that, but cases are, in my opinion, essential to have. Why? It's like having an expensive suit without covering over it to keep the moths away. I currently have no cases, but I'd like to get 2 hard cases soon. If I ever move to a different house or just need to store my ...

Seconded, or should I say thirded?

If it was me, I'd probably go with the Roland Axis, though. :P Congrats on the purchase!

Michael Iceberg Equipment?

I've always wondered what equipment Michael Iceberg brings on stage with him. Can anyone here point out some of it? I really can only make out the Prophet 5 and maybe that's a Yamaha below it. The whole concert is on Youtube. http://youtube.com/watch?v=YOaXgrdhwjw The drum machine sound I like.. pos...

Synth Ads

Just thought I'd show these here for others to see. I take a digital publishing class and sometimes I just feel like making an ad for a synth I like. The two I made so far are the two main ones that I own, a Juno-6 and D-50. They're not high quality ads by today's standards, but I like them. The D-5...

When I was playing that I had my Juno in mono mode, but it's a little finicky. You just power it up holding key transpose while the arpeggiator is set to up. That let's you use all 6 voices. The frequency was set about mid-range, anything less was getting to be almost not heard. Added some delay alo...

Okay, I tried what was suggested and made a quick recording of what I came up with.

It gets there, but something seems missing?

Creamy Lead

What synths can really create a creamy/smooth sounding lead? I've always wondered but never really knew of any besides the Minimoog.

That song has the kind of lead I'm talking about if anyone doesn't quite understand.

Why convert? Why not just keep both analogue and digital synths? They complement eachother in an awesome way. I think maybe a few people misunderstood me. :P I'm not saying this in the sense that I got a D-50 and I'm getting rid of my Juno-6. Far from it, just the D-50 is my first jump into actual ...

I know what you mean, I went from a SH-101 to a Micron. Well, not strictly true as there was a lot of other stuff in between. But the Micron was the first keyboard I've had where I have only just scratched the surface. Oh, BTW I could never afford the DX-7 back in the day, so I went from the 101 to...

One I could have bid on started at $99, and one was at $69. As I remember, they didn't go for much beyond those prices. There used to be someone who had one for sale in an eBay shop that had his marked for $199 if I remember correctly. Those prices were all back in about 2004 or so, though... when ...

I know where quite a bit is on my D-50, just the editing of it kills me. I love real time tweaking. And so far using the menu's I can't figure out how to do anything other than a basic saw wave. I will admit though, it's easier than I originally thought. Before I got it I had imagined it being like ...

Converting over to digital?

Wow, it must seem odd for someone like me to say this, but digital synths are confusing. I'm 19 now, I got my first synth when I was 16, and it was a Juno-6. So fun and easy to edit around with it. I just bought a D-50 not long ago and I was rather stunned by the leap! I've read and read the manual,...
