Re: tetra or possible alternatives?

The voice architecture is identical to a single voice of the Prophet '08, but with a couple of unique twists to distinguish it from its award-winning sibling. So while the MoPho/Tetr4 do have some more features than the P'08, I believe they will have the same basic sound, no? If so, it seems like t...

Re: Which studio monitors should I buy?

I like the MSP5s better than the HS50s, but the HS80s more than the MSP7s. The KRKs are great for their price range though, I've also heard cool things about the Tascam VL-A4 and A5. What I did when picking out monitors was brought a CD of familiar music to my local Sam Ash/Guitar Center type place,...

Re: Multiple Sounds from one synth

Step 1. If you're playing your synth by hand, set a MIDI track to record the MIDI output of your SH-201, or just create a MIDI sequence in the DAW some other way. The key is to have a MIDI track of the notes you want your synth to play, one way or another. Step 2. Send the output of the MIDI track y...

Re: Microkorg or Minibrute

MS2000 has the same sound engine as the MicroKorg but is way more fun to play/program. R3 has a little more of a clean sound engine (some like it better, some don't - I do, personally) and while it isn't as knobby as the MS2000, it's still way more fun to program than a Micron or MicroKorg imo. Also...

Re: Beastie Boys Samplers

Not sure on Licened to Ill, but from the mouth of one of the Dust Brothers via Sound on Sound.. "...We did all of Paul's Boutique on an Emax HD, which was mono and 12-bit and had a 22kHz sampling rate. So we had plenty of experience of the primitive domain of early sampling: low bit rate and low sam...

Re: Analogish Dirt with Software?

tape saturation emu plugs are nice for this, I also like the free Camel Crusher and Rough Rider compressors - both can do over the top destruction in spades, but if used carefully are nice for subtle stuff too. I especially like the Rough Rider on a return for NY comp duties.

Re: Help creating a specific sound

really? I thought it sounded like more of a resonant low pass filter but yeah, the important part is the filter, the chords themselves could be a copy of the piano sound, or a simple synth sound also, while on the topic of beatmania, help IDing this synth plz [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

This is the biggest issue, I believe the Dark Time has no memory whatsoever - what you see is what gets played back, so in that regard it's intuitive, but won't do what you want.

Re: Do you align keys on your keyboards on multi-tier stands

I do, but only because it happens to be convenient and looks snazzy - I don't think I'd mind if they weren't lined up, though I do like how it feels like a giant badass organ of synthesizers. Another question would be, if not lined up - do you ever actually play more than one synth at once? I find t...

Re: Which Kaoss Pad should I get?

the miniKP is a great deal these days, I have one and I love it - the big boys are cool with the sampling and MIDI and all, but the mini is a blast and I think it'd go great with a Monotribe

to be fair though, if I were in your position I'd be drooling over an MFB 522 as a Monotribe buddy
