Re: looping tools for jamming

I recently got an electro Harmonix 2880 looper and it's great for exactly what you're describing. It can sync to midi as well so you could sync it up with a drum machine which is a lot of fun. It's also just great as impromptu 4 track recorder.

Re: Anyone here burned out on modern analog?

I guess I'm spoiled by being used to an instrument i can wear and feel make the sound acoustically through my whole body...wheras in comparison synths are almost always some disconnect between going plink-plink on a plastic key and hearing the result "over there" (=wherever the speaker is). So a ti...

Re: Buchla LEM4 Snoopy

It's a buchla, if you care whether it's analogue or digital maybe you should get something else. :roll: C'mon man.. Maybe its not a deal breaker and the guy just wants to be clear on it? Muhammed it looks like it uses the 261e Complex oscillator, which from what I can gather is digital but with ana...

Re: What is the sexiest looking synth of all time?

The wave looks busy to me , and almost has the look of a cheap running shoe. Nailed it . I also personally cant find any synth with a screen/display aesthetically appealing. The X/Y pad on the Moog Voyager is really unsightly too, like an ugly screen that also doesnt work any more :lol: I see a cou...

Granted, my RE201 is currently out of commission...but when it works its totally worth it!
I've got both too, but really, really like my RE-20. Not a 201, but a great delay nonetheless.

The roland sh-2 has it, it's great for strong bass when you have a square or saw on Osc 2. A sine is also good for osc>filter modulation which the Vermona has correct?

Re: Which Odyssey color?

Prior to Kubricks film 'Odyssey' would elicit images of Greek city states and dudes in togas hunting sheepskins. Haha true, the first time I heard the word odyssey was at a farm when I was 6 and got taken for a ride in an ATV/dune buggy called a Honda Odyssey, it was so much fun that my imagination...

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

I dont dig the black/orange, but strangely like it on the Arp Axxe, and would take it over the mk.1 Axxe.

The white Odyssey looks like it should be in 2001: A Space Odyssey :giveheart: ...In fact I always wondered if they designed it and thought the same, hence the name.

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

Agreed, I'd love a 2600. I've snagged a white one on Pre-order My friend sent me a pic from Namm of the included case, its pretty cool and retro looking. What's with this drive circuit ? Flick the switch and plays a duophonic demo of that Cars song. 8-) I dont think adding drive circuit was a necess...
