I would just connect the tape in/out to your soundcard i would do that, only this new mixer it isn't "tape" in/out it's "record" in/out. so i can't monitor AND record at the same time, because what i'm monitoring (from the computer) goes straight into the recording mix, back into the computer. but ...

I don't think that everyone who buys synths nessisarily wants to make recordings with them, or even music - but I don't really see that as something wrong or any kind of misconception true.. true.. it's just something that drives me nuts. i mean. it's similar to something like spending a small fort...

F'N YES! i cant believe how torn the reviews are for this thing. but really. i'm a little more sick of t...

definitely not my worst... they've all been pretty bad! but this was the first song i ever did a number of years ago, using my korg DW-8000, and overdrive/reverb pedals... oh and i believe the drums may be from an alesis sr-16? http://www.oftheoak.net/m/allivegot.mp3 i think i've only sang on a song...

oh oh. i think you're just hearing the sound of a truck backing up maybe. i believe there's something like that in there. i got my zoom rfx-1000 for 40 $US. but on ebay... i think they got for around that same price range. there's the zoom rfx 2200 for... maybe 2-3x the price. they're decent .. but ...

thanks for listening! i appreciate it very much! as for your questions: not sure which song you're referring to about the "bass sound", but i can say it's probably just the Ion. any field recorded sounds are relatively obvious to pick out, and for those four songs up all i've used it the Ion. actual...

Don't turn into one of those people who ends up with a room full of synths they don't fully understand how to use and don't have any tracks to show for it. i second this. exactly the reason i am selling/sold my older synths.

it doesn't take much

my recent musical project is all drone/ambient based... the gypsy moth project and pretty much... all i use is: zoom rfx-1000 (multi-fx unit) alesis ion korg dw-8000 and an akai ax-80 (and lots of field recordings) i already sold my dw, but the akai is on ebay right now. personally, the Ion kicks a*...
