Untouchable, thanks for your input.

Your opinion clarifies what I suspected. Softsynths are only capable of producing certain types of synth sound.

I guess I'd better start saving up (again)!! :wink:

Do I suck at synth programming? Or is it the softsynths?

Guys, I'm trying to program Imagination's 'Music & Lights' synth bass patch. This bass sound is not the same as the 'Just an Illusion' patch. The latter is smoother with less grit/bite than the sound I'm going for. I'm no expert (hence this post), but I think the Music & Lights patch comprises 3 wav...

Well, I think it could be a combination of bad slider(s) and the transpose switch - like I said in the original post, one of the problems is that it transposes itself. I'll follow the advice and try thoroughly exercising the sliders (and transpose switch) to see if that helps. I luckily found anothe...

Mooger5 and Alyerpal - thanks for the input. I desperately hope I can solve this problem myself because I've just been badly let down - it looks like there's no-one here that can help me. :( I had been advised that there was an ex-Roland employee here in Bangkok that could fix vintage gear. I was to...

Thanks altitude. Unfortunately the problem is now much, much worse; it's happening several times per second. The sonic consequences of which have rendered her unusable. :cry: I'm reluctant to be separated from her but I've no choice. I'll have to take her to the engineer to get this sorted out. The ...

Kenton Pro DCB Mk3 aux out to control Moogerfooger LPF freq?

Hi guys,

I'm considering buying a MIDI-DCB converter for my Juno 60, I'm also considering a Moogerfooger LPF.

Would it be possible to modulate the Moogerfooger's cutoff frequency with the Pro DCB Mk3 aux out?

Many thanks in advance!

Are you in the UK? No, I'm not in the UK, but the mains AC voltage where I am is 230. It might be that there's a voltage switch inside though - I'm not sure about this particular unit. No, there isn't a switch on the back of the MSQ-700 to select voltage. Many thanks for clearing that up for me!

MSQ-700: Replacing lithium battery & AC 117 volts questi

Sorry for another lithium battery post - but my query is a little more specific than ditabeardmemo's. I need to replace the battery in my recently acquired MSQ-700. I found a post on Analogue Heaven stating that the Roland part number is 12569140 - EP-6 lithium battery. Can I just replace it with an...

After a Casio CT403 (shitty home keyboard) my first proper synth was a DX9 purchased in '84. I soon realised it wasn't capable of making the sounds I wanted and bought a Poly 800 very soon afterwards.

Veteran seeks new module for late 70's/early 80's sounds

Hi guys, I've been into synths for over 20 years. I've owned a Midimini, Pro-One, Microwave I & XT, Wavestation, various Juno's, JP8, JD800, JP8080, 202, 808, 909, ASQ10... the list is endless. BUT, I had my most productive musical period with quite a modest setup: Atari 1040, Roland Juno2 & PG300, ...

1982. I was 13 years old. It was my first experiment with psychoactive substances and my first time hearing TD. My friend borrowed Force Majeure from his elder brother and we listened to side 1 over and over again all night. Life changing stuff!

Many thanks for the info and pics guys! Does anyone know what reverb unit(s) Manuel was using at that time? As an aside, I remember reading a review of E2-E4 in one of the electronic music mags back in '83. The reviewer just didn't get it, he said it was an overtly repetitive 2nd rate TD backing tra...

AFAIK TD never used the EKO Computerhythm, but JMJ did. The only photo I'd previously seen of it (until today) is on the back cover of Blackouts. Anyway, back to the original subject of the thread... not sure what is making the metallic bottle sound (but it is a ring-mod sound) Thanks for the input,...
