Re: Swing on tr707 maximum

Well...when I listen to house music I hear a hi hat very close to the kick drum in about 90% of house music...back in the day people only had the tr707 and I guess they relied heavily on this swing to get the speed of a track vibing along. I guess now we tend to use a Daw to draw the hi hats in and ...

Swing on tr707 maximum

Hi guys...would you say that the roland swing setting of a maximum of 5 is good enough to get the hi hat as close to the kick drum for dance music / house....it sounds pretty close and it can't be bettered I guess if using hardware.
But is having a DAW a lot better.

Best casio keyboard for PCM

I'm looking for a synth relatively cheap that will give out basic instrument sounds that can be modulated in some way...example being CT 470 Casio comes close but is there anything better out there that I'm missing..

I really don't want to sample..

Re: Tr707 programming into Atari

I get two little indicators that bounce up and down when I play my notes from a synth to tell me that it's hearing the notes...when I link it in the same way to my 707 these do not move anymore.

I can't understand as I have a casio rz1 and I have no problem with that mapping my notes...

Tr707 programming into Atari

Hi All...I have a Tr707 and I wish my Atari with an early version of cubase to sequence all my drum sounds from the 707..... It seems that when I go to midi it up in the same way for a synth with simple in out midi cables to and from..the Atari sequencer does not hear them.....the I/O levels do not ...

Re: Opinions on upcoming TR-808 and SH-101 Boutiques

Think they've made a right pigs ear of the SH,what a mess. However I do like the TR08 and it will sit well with my TR09 and I lack space anyway so for me ideal. I agree with the last post in I think that roland want to give us a hardware experience in a software form. I think that because a lot of V...

Re: Which synth should i get

I would second the waldorf unit as me nearest thing available. I saw an Arp omni 1 for spares or repair for real cheap and got it back to new again...it's a fantastic synth and I believe that the earliest albums were done on the 1 and not the 2...they have a very sad sound to them. I had to have all...

Algorithms in general DX reface

I'm rather new to this FM stuff...but am trying at least...I'm currently using a yamaha DX reface which has 12 algorithms available...I seen to find that the higher the algo the thinner the sound seems to get. I'm playing around with the synth and depending what preset I start off with I'm ending up...

roland Tr09 battery time query

Hi All....has anyone else found that the stated 4 hours of battery play seems to actually be 2 hours max...there is no way I've hit 4 hours before the thing flashes and wants more batteries fed into it...bloody nightmare.

Could I possibly feed it off of a roland sbx1 into the micro of the Tr09.

Atari notes move when hardware sync

Hi All....Weird one....if I use my Atari with my Poly 800 all is well...midi cable in to the out etc...I play in a 9 note sequence by hand and tighten it up a little with using a 64 th quantise and snap. I now wish to use my hardware TR707 to trigger the Atari with the help of sync function. So that...

Re: Korg poly 800 sequencer question

Thank you for your very helpful replys and even the manual download....I love using this site even though I post silly questions I know.
