Re: waldorf micro Q info, patch and compatibility ?

I have a MICRO Q screaming yellow. Got it for $50!!!! It has the same engine than the Q, but the Q has more poly and more knobs to manipulate parameters. So the position of the extra knobs on the presets, is what makes the difference mentioned by DoCT, but they are almost the same instrument. If you...

Re: odd little question...what're you letting master your setup?

I always compose music thinking on the live performance. So I say: If I spend time like a DJ, mixing the audio output, you know, playing with the low, mid and high gains for each channel, monitoring this synth with headphones, etc.... I won't be able to tweak my synths!!! So on each sound, on each w...

Re: Are people still using Hardare Samplers?

I only work with hardware. On live setups, hardware samplers are very affordable. Besides, the combination of several samplers from different labels, made on different years, with different technologies, gives you a more heterogeneous audio spectrum, besides the mixture of these gear creates synergy...
