Re: Synth in "Relax" by Frankie goes to Hollywood?

IMHO the best electronic track that have hitted the charts in the history of modern music. The explosive white noise sound is a Jupiter. But there's something on the voice of this track that makes my flesh crawl, the effect on the voice is incredible, is like chorused, makes me remember the voice of...

Re: What has happend to Yamaha and synthesizers?

nothing beats a real instrument in your hands. x2 =D> Aren't synthesizers real instruments???? Is a Minimoog trying to "emulate" a real instrument or is a real instrument by itself? I think that even a modern rompler or even workstations can be considered real instruments. Maybe the issue is how fa...

Re: Akai and the joy of lo-fi sampling

I have been looking for one of those, since I have an AKAI AX 80 analog synthesizer. It belongs to the days of the Roland Juno series, and it has as Minidin entrance to hook up an Akai lo fi sampler.

I haven't been able to get one of those, in order to process samplers throught real analog filters.

Re: What has happend to Yamaha and synthesizers?

Ifell I owe some loyalty to Yamaha, since I started to love music composition using the arranger keyboards PSR when I was a child... I like the high detailed level of synthesis and variations of parameters that you can control on a Yamaha synth. They put a lot of concern on having multiple parameter...

Re: What has happend to Yamaha and synthesizers?

However - since the AN1x and the EX5 and it's FDSP - they have abandoned all synthesizer developed completely and have absolutely nothing new apart from Motif. That's ten years without absolutely no synthesizer development! Cheers, Kevin. EX5.... the most complicated digital synth I ever owned. Sam...

There are no "patches" samples are not editable, no LFO, no filter, amp attack or decay, etc. There is no romp...

In contrary to those gbyte sampling, I am now addicted to hardware sampling using the RS7k, MC-909 down to the SU10.
