Re: Is It Just Me?

I agree with the original poster that the difference in the sound between a classic analog synth and its software emulation should not be worth thousands of dollars. If you were to judge it by the standards of the society on a larger scale that is almost absurd. But... People don't seem to have prob...

Re: layering drums

Couldn't access your soundcloud page, because it required me to have an account. I recognize this problem from the days I did pop / rock type of music with the aid of a computer (early days for DAWs around 1999-2001). In my case it was due to the mixes being just too full of different elements, so t...

Re: Chromeo Patches

Yes, I'm a fan. I can't comment on the exact patches, but I'll offer something that may or not be of help to you. Your setups seems like something that could be very suitable for electro-funk. I'd be inclined to think that the LP is your best bet (I find the new Moogs to be very suitable for the lat...

Re: Microphone purchase.

Why would I bother baiting a troll anymore than I already have? I've been using the internet for 15+ years and this is the first time I've been called a "troll", but it's not necessarily surprising when coming from you. In my post, I gave a considerate reply where I stated what type of experience a...

Re: Microphone purchase.

Then address my "semi-trollish posts" on a thread where you think it is appropriate. Being called out for such a thing when defending Shure microphones for studio use is a bit thick, I have to say. I'm hardly the only one that thinks they are better for a lot of things than many cheap condenser micr...

Re: Slim Phatty

If I didn't have the Voyager myself, I'd probably get the LP. Like stated, VCOs over DCOs (or whatever the current DSI synths really use). However, I've been considering getting the Tetra so that I could play chords with my left hand while playing leads on something else. The presets could be also u...

Re: Slim Phatty

Oh, you can tune the LP yourself just by using the OS, right? That's a good thing. You're supposed to send the Voyager to a "certified Moog technician", or some s**t like that, for a tune-up.

Re: Slim Phatty

Did you mean to imply the Voyager doesn't have the switchable 1-4 filter poles? It does. You can do that by using the OS. Also, the Voyager is a stereo synth. That gets seldom mentioned in these discussions. I'm not sure what type of LFO routing options the LP has, but I'm under the impression they ...

Re: Microphone purchase.

There are some nice dynamics for vocals like the SM7B, RE-20 and others, but the SM58 really sounds like absolute s**t. You must have a really weird voice or strange tastes if you preferred the 58 to any cheap condenser. The NT1A is a bit peaky but it's much better than a 58, the AT2020 is pretty g...

Re: Microphone purchase.

On vocals, I've preferred the SM58 over any cheap condenser microphone I've auditioned (I haven't tried out anything released in the last couple of years, though). Of course, It's a bit different thing with acoustic guitars. I'm not sure if my comment helps you at all, but I just wanted to say that ...

Re: Most physically attractive synths

I've always thought they look like the hardware counterparts of the typical freeware / synthedit VSTi's.

Re: Well, so much for the BCR

That's just been the case with Behringer for ages. A certain percentage of their units work just fine and the rest typically have all kinds of problems. Buying Behringer is like buying a lottery ticket.

Re: Moog Lap Steel

One thing that I’m sure about is that if it is something close to the Moog Guitar then the experimental musicians are going to be happy! A synth lap steel would be a great invention for those who like to create sound textures, and ambiant music with a slide! Because yes a lap steel is a great instr...
