Re: Any need for VA gear still??

?

What would that have to with what Shreddie argued about the variances produced by all the parts of an analog synth?

Not that I'd myself consider the "slight variations" to be the only factor that contributes to the observed differences mentioned in the typical analog vs. digital debates.

Re: Any need for VA gear still??

Oh, c'mon. That comment was just a joke. I better state that out loud before it has the typical effects of trolling, though. But, yeah, I prefer FM and sample based digital keyboard instruments over VA's myself. However, I'm not sure about that "programming" argument that gets thrown around a lot he...

No, there's no need for VA's. They're s**t.

Re: how does the look of a synth affect your perception

I don't want to spend a lot of money on something that I don't find physically appealing as well. I got my own share of units that are a bit sore to the eye, but they tend to be the cheaper ones. I think it's more about the shape of the design and the overall colour scheme that I am partial to, I co...

Re: what's the ugliest synth you can come up with?

Is it really as "ergonomic" to use as the description insists? The controls are placed too far away from the keyboard, so I think it could be terrible to use while sitting. That's why I don't like stacking racks behind a midi controller either.

Re: Slim Phatty

I'm pretty sure it's entirely possible to "have a Moog" even in a country where the taxes are higher. VAT has been 20-25%.in this country for ages. Yet it didn't stop me from getting a Moog.

Re: Slim Phatty

Hah, I just realized the "artist's impression" on the Gearjunkies site would be at least twice as wide as a rack unit could be. No wonder something looked really odd about it.

Re: Slim Phatty

Integrating 4-6 of those things within the same enclosure would cut down the costs too. Although I suspect Moog won't even consider putting out a Poly until they've made their money off this thing. Hopefully, I'm wrong about that part though. Actually, why the h**l should I care. I don't even want a...

Re: Slim Phatty

There are no CV inputs or outputs on the Voyager RME (rack version). You will have to buy the CV I/O boxes separately for that. So it's very well possible that this one here won't have them either in order to cut down costs. The Voyager RME is polychainable. Just haven't seen too many people actuall...

"thats all fun in games if you want a toy synthisier but real modulaters only use DC 90. frequency processors (the model before used the N1 Photon I believe) a real modulator like a doepfer or even korg has nearly 7x the amount of tri-conversions per cycle second and it would be nearly impossible f...

Re: Looking for a cheaper Retro-Sounding Synth

if youre on a budget, you might want to consider virtual analogs cause theyre generally cheaper. some nice options are things like the korg ms2000, novation k station, roland jp-8080 and waldorf micro Q. weve got a k-station if youre interested. all of these should be fairly easy to find, shouldnt ...
