Re: New Moog apparently...

How does the Minitaur do with quick staccato sequences? In the video around say.. 0:46 it seems like the attack might be a little soft? Also if the external in goes through the VCA (which I imagine it does) - for a noise source just find a radio or an old CRT with an audio out and set it to one of t...

Re: a synth to boost enthusiasm ($1500 or more)

I'd say lose the idea of a super-knobby poly that can also serve as a sequencer - instead go with a super-knobby poly + an MPC1000/2500 w/ JJos, the MPCs really do seem like the most intuitive (while powerful!) sequencer, and it's easy as piss to get them cooperating with a synth. The most of the Vi...

Re: vermona mono lancet ,user opinions/best patches

Well the Mono Lancet has a pretty classic subtractive synth architechture - so open your search criteria to search for subtractive monosynth patches (or patches for classic simple subtractive synths.. Moog Rogue, SH-101, SEM etc - even the Minimoog) and see how close you can get/what you can adapt t...

Re: Moog LP expression control for filter

I don't think he wants to put electric bass through the LP, just he's used electrib bass + MF-101 + expression in the past, liked it, and wants to have similar foot control for synth basses? If that's the case, yeah all you need is an expression pedal, and the synths envelopes can be tweaked to prod...

Re: 1st Mooger?

Wanted to revive this thread as I just purchased an LP. I'm primarily using my LP for bass, although I do some lead stuff with it as well. I think the primary thing I want to do is be able to control filter cutoff with my foot. I've used the fooger LPF previously as an effect for an electric bass b...

Re: Portable Poly Synth (suggestions?)

I actually like the R3's interface because the LED screens+rings show you what each knob is doing at a given time, but that may be better if you already know what you're doing - I feel like a lot of the first steps in learning synthesis are "ooh what does this knob do" moments, in which case the K-s...

i mentioned that earlier in this thread. & i'm in the US. long as it isn't discontinued / out of stock there, it's actually a better deal to buy direct, too, despite international shipment.

Re: Sticking a toe in the modular (Euro) waters

One thought is that anything that can be controlled via expression pedal can be controlled via CV, info on how to do it safely here: http://www.analogindustries.com/blog/entry.php?blogid=1319321991586 I really want to start a eurorack modular as well, but I don't have the funds currently.

Re: Interesting examples of ring modulation?

Jan Hammer uses a ring mod on his Rhodes all over the first Mahavishnu Orchestra album



His solo on this tune starts at 2:20, ring mod comes in very shortly after.. listen to the whole song though because it's disgusting.

Re: Paper Diamond - Can we go up (Stephen Forsyth Fidget Rem

Sounds tight man, only thing that's slightly eating at me is the synth release trail coming out of the the.. 8th bar of the main bit? First happens around 1:19, I think I want to hear it straight up cut to the next sound that comes in instead of having them kind of crossfade over each other? I also ...

Re: What affordable analogue poly synths are out there?

Take a look at what the Kiwitechnics Patch Editor is compatible with, any of those plus the PE (or even a BCR-2000 really) would probably be sweet, I personally have been lusting towards an MKS-70 and a PE. On a similar note, JX-3P + Kiwitechnics upgrade seems insane. No one ever really talks about ...
