Re: Mopho keyboard shipping?

Set up looks good! Without trying it out yet I would sayyou need it set up like this. Mokey MIDI out into Mpc MIDI in. Mpc MIDI out a into mokey MIDI in. Mpc MIDI out b into tetra. Make sure that MPc has the MIDI through function set to as track. Ensure local on is off on the mokey. Ensure multimod...

Re: Mopho keyboard shipping?

Yeah lets switch some links over PM later on, once I get the hang of it :mrgreen: Anyways... TA DA! The gear arrived today... all except for the new monitors (bought those slightly later, so they might take a few more days). http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y37/aquatek/SANY0226.jpg http://i2.photobu...

Re: Mopho keyboard shipping?

Ha – I’ll report back too ;-) And with the tetra, mopho keyboard and my MPC we’ve got pretty damn similar set-ups N8-r! ;-) What kind of stuff do you make? Electro, techno and acid-y stuff this end.. pretty much the same thing. Electro, mostly. House. Some techno. The occasional throwback acid / ja...

Re: I upgraded mpc 1000 to 5000

My roommate went from a 2500 to a 5000 and has been regretting it ever since. The 5000 has given him a plethora of problems. He's had to send it to Akai for repairs already once, and he needs to send it for a second time, because the thing literally started SMOKING while he was using it, then the sc...

Re: Using Tetra with Mopho KB / Prophet 08 / Mono Evolver KB

OK, so I emailed DSI later that day, and am pasting their reply (which came very quickly! hooray for reliable support) here: Thank you for your interest in the MoPho Keyboard and the Tetra! Basically, you're right about poly chain- look at it as creating one 5-voice synth. It is used for playing a p...

Re: Mopho keyboard shipping?

Thanks geoff for that deep explanation! Useful info there for sure. A few days ago, after my last post, I also contacted DSI with my doubts (might as well ask them too. Very speedy reply... within a few minutes!) and this is what they said. ... You can also have a "5 part multitimbral synth" of sort...

Re: looking to buy a groovebox

You may want to know that, unlike "grooveboxes", the MPC usually doesn't have a preset sound / sample bank. You need to load your own, or if you're lucky, you'll find someone selling the MPC with a bunch of sample disks or a stocked hard drive (if that model does have a hard drive installed). Still,...

Re: What are these drumsynths worth nowadays?

After doing a lot of reading, thinking, and scouring the nets, I decided that an MPC is actually a more convenient solution.

Found a great deal on an MPC 2000XL with 8 outputs and full RAM. I won the auction at $305. Hooray ebay!

Re: What are these drumsynths worth nowadays?

I actually used to do this. I have sample folders for a lot of these old school drum machines and used to run them in an MPC 1000... which I sold after some time. I do kind of want a dedicated drum machine, as opposed to just playing samples of it, cause I really do like drum machines, much in the s...

Re: Mopho keyboard shipping?

Yeah I figured. At first I was unsure about poly chain's abilities, but now I know for sure it just turns the tetra into a voice expander, so I know it would only work with mopo / p08. Thanks! Still interested in learning about the integration between mopho / p08 and tetra, especially how to run a 5...

Re: Using Tetra with Mopho KB / Prophet 08 / Mono Evolver KB

Figured as much, thanks.

Any accounts of the tetra working with a mopho, though? Still interested in that combo.

Using Tetra with Mopho KB / Prophet 08 / Mono Evolver KB

Asked about this in the mopho keyboard thread, but I figured it wasn't a good idea to ask on a new thread. has anyone already tried any of these combos? I found the P08 to sound GREAT, but the mopho + tetra combo, or evolver + tetra combo, look a little more versatile (I prefer 5 mono parts to a sin...

Re: Mopho keyboard shipping?

has anyone already tried this mopho keyboard together with a Tetra? I found the P08 to sound GREAT, but the mopho + tetra combo looks a little more versatile (I prefer 5 mono parts to a single or at most, two poly parts). I've read that, through poly chain, the tetra simply acts as a voice expander ...
