Dead Andromeda. Great...

So a couple of years ago I bought a used Andromeda off my friend for an ok price locally. I would never have the guts to ship one in. He took a little less than the going rate because it was missing a knob and because he said that program changes froze it up sometimes but it was ok if you used the s...

Re: Which was the first production duophonic synth?

Maybe the EML 100 from 70/71 for the earliest ones?

Re: How many hardware synths do you own?

About 25 plus a large modular. I'd love to sell about half of the hardware synths but online you have to watch for scammers and locally everyone wants things for next to nothing. Laughable lowballs. I have to really not like a synth to sell it because I just find it a lot of hassle. Everything I hav...

Re: Anyone here burned out on modern analog?

There still aren't many polyphonic modern analogues, so I would definitely say no! I am not interested in DSI unfortunately so there aren't many options for me to choose from, let alone get burnt out on. Furthermore, I'd say there aren't too many smooth sounding monophonic synths out there either. ...

Re: Anyone here burned out on modern analog?

I'm not trying to criticize anyone's personal preferences, but after seeing countless people trash virtual analogs and other digital synths, I'm curious if any other digital fans like myself are still unconvinced of analog supposed superiority. Oh, a digital vs analog thread. Got it! Anyone truly i...

Re: review of repair work - Three Wave Music

I hear ya 8bit, your story happens to a lot of people once. Happened to me about 8 years ago. I bought a "perfectly working" Octave Cat SRM off Ebay for $500. When it got here the 2nd osc wouldnt sound although it would still FM. Some sliders were scratchy and some pots were irritating. First, I too...

Re: Price discrepancies?

It's easy to blame Ebay but there are way, way more people into gear now than before and competition for gear drives prices up. Being a DJ isn't cool anymore, everyone wants to be a producer, and using all softsynths isn't cool anymore so hardware gear is popular again. Or at least having some hardw...

Re: Boss PC-2 Sweep Effect

I'm sure it's just a AR transient acting as a pitch envelope with an inverter for negative sweeps. Neat pedal. My favorite memory of it is finding one for $30 and then selling it for $300 when they were really hard to find and before there were a million percussion synths out there in order to buy o...

Re: hidden cost of using ebay

Kids today... Is Ebay a bit of a hassle? Yes. Did Ebay used to be a lot better 5 years ago? Yes. Fees-wise and customer protection-wise. A few years ago all online retial and auction sites realized that without buyers there aren't fees. So they do everything possible for the buyer and to attract buy...

Re: Ebay scam risk?

Yep I only sell small, cheap, easy to ship and low risk of damage items on Ebay now. The chances of getting scammed are very low, especially if you research the buyer before shipping, but they still exist at a high enough rate that I would never sell a high ticket item through them. When researching...

Re: Synths that didn't impress you

And the Nord Modular. Only tried a V1 keys but already had (and still have) Creamware Scope Modular which I like much better. if you want to wow yourself go buy a cheap Creamware Scope card, get the latest version of Scope and Modular. For an old softsynth, still sounds decent and the latest Scope i...
