Re: EPS16+ Transwave

No, I did try to buy some on an ebay auction, but didn't "win" them, only to discover they were copies anyway. It seems the guy does this a lot. I gather an important part of the deal is the printed manual that comes with them and the ebay auction made no mention of one. So I'm not clear where to bu...

My guess is that pitch bent lead line is a DX7. But I could be wrong. Hate to admit, I could probably recite all the lyrics from memory. As you say a great pop song.

This to me is no big deal when everything is taken into consideration. Any box of delicate old electronics is likely to suffer damage in transit be it in a 747 or bicycle. Also the auction system is not perfect, I have bought what has been described as a genuine artical only to find there is some na...

Dig out MirageEd it's free, written on Win95, unrestricted and will free you of button pressing and show you what controls what. The GUI you really wanted for the Mirage.

If I may add.. I started with an Atari ST, yup fine. Now use a PC but know the timing is poo, but it allows me to be technical in many ways, but not groovy. It is easy to become mesmerised by the passing colourful displays before your eyes rather than feeling the funk. I've only just started trying ...

OK I see the ebay piks for that nice System 700 have been added in another post, so I gather many of us are having a private drool. :roll: As there were only around 40 build, clearly a first attempt by the manufacturer, I would think the modules can be easily duplicated by some of the moden modular ...

:shock: wow! one on ebay, indeed there is!! What a coincidence. Good to see the photos, a closer view might be good fun. "Only 40 built" - is this true??

Roland system 700

Anyone got info on how this synth sounded? I can find lots of stuff on the System 100 but there seems next to nothing on this beast. I don't want one or even aspire to owning one but would like to know what it sounded like and what it was good for.
