Re: Best synth buys you've made

$900 for my Pro One.....the sound, oh the sound. $1800 for my Andromeda...mmm tasty In what way is $900 a good deal for a Pro-One? The title is "best synth buys you've made" not the "best deals you've gotten." My best synth buys were the Pro One and the Andromeda. s**t, the Pro One's sound, to ME i...

Re: Lead sound in "The Party's Over" by Talk Talk

Man, I love this band. Got progressively more claustrophobic and intense over time...sweet. Fewer synths though.

Re: What got you into synths?

The big three: Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk and Space . "I Feel Love" by Donna Summer is really ground zero. Then Giorgio's "From Here To Eternity", Kraftwerk's "Trans Europe Express" and Space's "Magic Fly" set me on go about synth music...Like a kid watching a magic show. When synth-pop hit in the e...

Re: Sequencer Talk

I'd love to see how the specs of the Sequentix Cirklon compare to the Genoqs Nemo . . . anyone have some inside info? Didja try the Sequentix website? http://www.sequentix.com/cirklon.htm They give the main specs. If it's more detail you want, try e-mailing them. They responded to my e-mail back in...

Re: TR-606 - How long before I need to check the batteries?

You could save up for an AC adapter...just plug it in before you change the batteries. Let's see that's a DC 9V right? So the electribe AC Adapter wouldn't work....right? Googling this phrase: "tr-606 power adapter" turns up this adapter as the proper one: Boss aca120 . Find someplace that sells th...

Re: Help me choose... Pro One, Odyssey, or Source?

i'm going to ignore your entire question and just suggest an entirely different synth. each of those vintage synths are awesome and worthy items to own. my only problem with vintage is if you aren't after a very specific sound then your money would, in my opinion, be better spent with one of the co...

Help me choose... Pro One, Odyssey, or Source?

I have an Andromeda plus a few other synths, but am looking into a vintage monosynth. I can't decide between these three which I should pursue. What do you think? One thing I won't need it for is drum sounds, and <grin> pads. Please disregard the price differential too. Thanks! Craig Disregard all s...

Re: Spectralis twooooo

indeed, hang on to what you have because it will be several months, at least, until the Spec will do what you want, the way you expect it to. once you get over the looooong learning curve then yeah - it's ace. i'm not even close to being there yet after 100-120 hrs of pretty intense study. with thi...

Re: End of the line for the ASB ?

I have a Minimax and it sure is a great Moog emulator. I can't find a Prodyssey anywhere...even used.

I guess I'll have to look at the Scope platform again.

Re: Thinking about changing my rig...

Completely theoretical... If I were to sell my OB-8, ARP Omni-2 and Moog Micromoog and get a Prophet 5 and ARP Odyssey as a replacement rig, you think it would be a good choice? Those are two pieces I've always wanted... just want opinions from the outside.. You know how it goes when you get used t...
