Re: What synth do you think has the 'best' string sounds?

Since we're discussing string sounds--Gianni, I have a JD-990 and you can hear the aliasing in the "real string" patches, and I don't particularly like it. Is the Strings waveform card worth getting? Well, if you want "real strings", then yes. The Strings card is usually the hardest to find. I neve...

Re: Winter NAMM 09 flood begins

I don't think anyone has mentioned it so far, but there is a V-Piano: http://www.rolandus.com/products/produc ... arentId=72

And some demos of the AX-Synth are around the web, and it sounds ... well, it could still work as a controller. :wink:

Re: On board effects

It depends on the synth's effects' quality I think. At least for me it does. Sometimes I want a gritty powerful lead for guitar-oriented songs, but let's say I try with an X-Station chain of effects, it will never sound as good as a couple of NL + analog pedals or even Korg Triton's effects.

Re: Progressive Rock track

Elves and wizards? :lol: Guitars were are actually recorded by my guitarist. We looked hard for a singer, but even though my guitarist is studying in Spain and I don't live all year in Peru, we're settled in Peru, the Land Without Singers.... of any kind. So we decided to go instrumental. :D Tomorro...
