Re: I need your input. Possibly stolen SH-7

DNA on a synth? Even if he'd had sex on it ( :shock: ) the DNA wouldn't have lasted this long. I'm not going to tell you how many other things are wrong with that argument :lol: .

Good answer though, made me laugh!

^^Good story. Highlights the use of the police report, which the OP unfortunately lacks.

Re: I need your input. Possibly stolen SH-7

recorded phone calls don't hold up in court Indeed - too easy to misrepresent etc. (we should know, as people who use software capable of doing so). I have to say though, that I don't understand why the OP didn't file a report or SOMETHING, at least to demonstrate at the time, that he owned this sy...

Re: I need your input. Possibly stolen SH-7

Don't email, call him directly. Maybe tell him you're interested in buying an SH-7 and ask him if he has one and, if so, if you could see some photos. Might be worth setting up another email account and getting him to send you them there, rather than the original correspondance email, as he may stil...

Re: Bandpass Filter Frequencies for Formant Synthesis

Awesome Ian, I've looked on SOS and Wiki for something like this. Mind if I ask where you got them from (are they your own results?)?

Re: I need your input. Possibly stolen SH-7

Well, considering that you gave it to him three years ago, I would say it was DEFINITELY stolen. I'd contact the police and give them everything that you know. You know the address that you sent it to, was somewhere that he could be reached. The police will be able to track down who was actually liv...

Re: External Multi-Effects (Eventide, TC Electronic etc)

I have the M350. I don't use the compressors on it, but the reverbs are good - nice and smooth; the delays are also interesting and provide a clean, versatile alternative to my Copicat. Two limitations: -the reverb always has to come after the multi-effect -the digital I/O only support sampling rate...

Re: Should I be worried?

I think it has to go back! Then there's your answer. :wink: it's definitely less of a bargain given that I'm still smelling the previous owners stinking habit, but it looks sweet I'd probably just open it up and leave it somewhere cool and dry, and put a fan over it. Leave it for a bit and it shoul...

Re: Pedal Steel Guitar on Synths

I don't see how it's possibly really: making it actually sound like a pedal steel would involve being able to change the pitch of each 'string' independently of the others, which is a bit tricky...but if you're just looking for that kind of shimmering sound, I'd probably start either with FM or wave...

Re: Should I be worried?

It looks to me - as others have mentioned - that something abrasive (most likely the interior of a cheap gig bag or something - a dirty cloth?) has rubbed against the keys; to me, it's understandable that the seller wouldn't really notice this, though a bit unfair to describe its condition as 'perfe...

Re: Good distortion pedal for Korg MS-20

The Crowther Hot Cake is a great SS unit which ranges from a clean boost all the way through to fuzz, with a very powerful tone control. I recommended it to a guy here a couple of months ago, can't remember who - maybe he'll chime in. I reckon you'd be best off with some sort of valve saturation - h...
