Re: Traditional Analog sounds for SY77 SY99

BTW, see this post for an mp3 of some analog sounds I was working on before getting sidetracked.

Re: Traditional Analog sounds for SY77 SY99

Short answer: Yes.

Re: Synth prices and inflation

So how long can we go on this one before being threatened with banishment for allowing a discussion to evolve naturally?

Re: I Dream of Wires

You uppity kids. Get off my virtual lawn! Back in my day you actually had to mortgage your house to be able to afford a modular! And you could only play Bach cantatas on it! And I mean PLAY. No fancy sequencers for us, you actually had to have technical ability! Computers!?!? PAH! We did everything ...

Re: Boxing all of Yamaha?

A Motif ES rack is your answer for everything but the FM. For that I suggest an FS1r.

Re: Ever been tempted to sell everything and buy a Korg Kron

It is interesting to note that on the recent 25th Anniversary Tour of So by Peter Gabriel, both Gabriel and David Sancious had a Kronos. I think it's a fantastic board for the touring musician, especially someone who is performing music that requires a wide spectrum of sounds because it can do them ...

Re: DSI announces Prophet 12!

According to a friend who spoke with the DSI guys at the booth today:
The oscillators are virtual, produced by a total of six SHARC chips. Output is then converted to analog to go to filters and VCAs. The chips also handle effects.
I don't care. It still sounds amazing.

Does it have individual outs for all 12 voices?

Zebra is an amazing synth. I made the mistake of downloading the demo of Diva tonight. Damn.

Re: How many people still use an ATARI ST setup?

^^ What's your point? I get more done when the machine I compose on is not the machine I websurf/play games/check email/distract myself on. This isn't a one-size-fits-all solution, but it's how I operate. I'm sure I'm not the only one. That's all fine and good but it doesn't necessarily prove that ...

Re: How many people still use an ATARI ST setup?

Nostalgia is fun and I myself have toyed with the idea of getting an Amiga (just because I always wanted one as a kid) but there is nothing that machine does which a modern DAW cannot do. And in every case I can imagine off the top of my head, a modern DAW would do it better and easier. I disagree ...

Re: Looking for Alchemy Users---got some Qs

One of my absolute favorite synths, hardware or software. Incredibly powerful yet simple to use. It's inspiring. The MSEQs are really useful for manipulating the sound. I assume you've read this: http://www.camelaudio.com/alchemymanual/mod/xy-mseg/ And check out the YouTube tutorials by the wonderfu...

Re: Thoughts on Buying a Used PCAudioLabs Computer?

The price isn't terrible. What is the brandname of the PSU? Most people skimp on the PSU and it is the most critical part of any computer, imo. Bad/cheap PSU = all sorts of issues that can be a bear to try to figure out. In regards to building your own, long gone are the days of DIP switches and dri...
