I remember having a borrowed ESQ-1, sounds so 80s yet so versatile at times.

Re: 1u or 2u synth/rompler to fill the space

For around $400 you could get a Triton rack, and when you get another $400 you can add the EXB-MOSS to make it a real interesting machine.

Re: Will the Waldorf Stromberg ever emerge into the daylight ?

It would be better if Waldorf finished the issues with the Blofeld [which have kept many of us from buying it] and then consider the Stromberg, Zarenbourg, etc. If they release another produce before fixing th blofeld, I think I'm going to swear to never buy waldorf again, and tell all my friends t...

Re: Why can't anyone release a small VA with analog filters ?

the quasimidi sirius was a v/a with analog filters.. im not sure about the polymorph though, if it does too like the sirius, then theres a lil synth (rackmount.. similar in design to jp8080 and ms2k) :) I thought too the Sirius had analog filters because I heard it that way. But recently it was men...

Re: What is a good keytar?

Usually keytars make you look dumb to a lot of people.
KX5 makes you look funky!



Like Chick Corea:

Sawtooth. You can't go wrong witn a sawtooth, again for the rich harmonic content. Deep basses, warm pads, brasses, strings, juicy leads and FX.

Re: Dumbest thing you've ever heard someone say about synths

Whats with all the idiotic metal heads knocking synths? Aren't there plenty of metal bands that integrate synths into their sound? I did metal with synthesizers for years, and trust me, synths do not get all the respect they should in that world. It's all about shredding and being shiny. Luckily I ...

Re: Yamaha are not really making any synths anymore

Well, I'm very much a fan of the latest Motif XS and really think it's the best workstation right now. Oasys was never really just a workstation... too much of a thing to compete with anyway. The sampled sounds in stock with the basic ROM are very good, and synth sounds can be very convincing, espec...

Re: Dumbest thing you've ever heard someone say about synths

2 days ago: "Hey Gianni, listen to this... Is this a guitar, a bass or a piano?" Apparently, none. It was an Evolver.

And endless stories of "Why would you buy another one?", "Piano = Organ = Synthesizer" and "What's synthesis?"

Exactly. As much as I love Yamaha synthesizers, be careful if you dare to use this live. Or do as I have learned is the best way... don't use it live!

Winds can't be romplered. Simple as that. That's why we use physical modelling. :D

Re: What is the stupidest accident you've had with you gear?

I've never drunk anything near any synthesizer, but during the time I used a laptop, I was doing a backup of my patches at home before leaving and someone called, when I reached for the phone, I spilled beer all over the keyboard and speakers, which then filtered to beneath the keys and was uncleana...

Re: The Curse of Jupiter (JP8000 problems, need owners' help)

Just checked ebay 'completed items' on the v-synth and the only thing I found was a rack module for about $1600. Please, if you find a V-synth for about $800, please, please let us know. I would like one at that price. a new GT, yeah...but the original can be had for less than $800 these days, and ...
