It is impossible to recreate the Dr Who bass on anything but the BBC radiophonics workshop!

Sorry bad joke...

Of course you can.

... In all fairness, there is one aspect about modular synthesis that software can't get you prepared for.... ...the technical side of building/expanding them. Get it wrong and you've a puff of smoke. Seems more confusing than building your own computer, at least it was for me. Blew through fuses i...

OK, this is his reply The mark is there before you turn the unit on, then when you turn the unit on, the mark is still there unchanged, when the unit is turned on everything displays as normal, which makes the unit 100% operational. Judging by this, do you think the would the mark be inside the gla...

Depends if the part is in stock. On the Roland MC 505 the lcd is basically four screws and a snap on ribbon (replacement should be around $60 - $80). However. the part was no longer made for the MC 505 (despite it being a common problem with the MC 505), so the techs had to customized another one wh...

Personally, I think it looks okay (except where the pegs are, but so what? it's minor and beauty is in the eye of the beholder anyway). I like the brown type colours but the other colours make it look cheap and plasticky to me (green, blue, etc). It's an interesting idea - but I concur, about the pr...

File editing on Zoom H2 question

When I try to edit a file, i seems to take a long long time. (Original file is 72 mins long). Why? Also, is there a rule of thumb as to how long it would take? Also, any recommendations on using a a car adapter (for doing edits) to save battery power...? Any help? Any suggestions? http://www.oreilly...

That and I'd hardly consider the Silver Apples a popular Pop/Rock band. :) True, but they were 'out there'. They were pioneers in using some form of electronica in pop music. They may not have had the same following as say the Beach Boys, but I wanted to give them credit where credit was due. Maybe...

Daily Nightly by the Monkees .., featured what is arguably the earliest synth appearance on a pop/rock record. The blips and gurgles from the Moog Modular held quite a fascination for me.. nope, you need to check this group out (Silver Apples 1967-1970). [img]ttp://www.urbanhonking.com/greatestband...

As a child, I loved such theme tunes as,-'' CAPTAIN SCARLET,'' '' LOST IN SPACE,'' ''DOCTOR WHO,'' Later on I was influenced by,- GARY NUMAN,'' ( boy what a sound ), and, ''J M JARRE,'' OXEGENE,'' act. I love Ron Grainer's work in the early Doctor Whos, but also check out his fine instrumental soun...

Wait...they remade Model Ds in 1998!?
The famous Welsh Mini Moog when even Robert had a hard time saying his last name.

They're quite collectible aren't they? I mean compared to the American version.

I have a CS-40m along with a big heavy Anvil road case. Something fried on the board on it a few years ago. It's in Pennsylvania at my parent's house. I have the original service manual as well. Anybody want it? All you have to do is get it. I would like to see it go to someone who can fix it and l...
