Re: Buying a Commodore 64

Since the sound comes out with the video, your signal to noise ratio will be a bit high. You can filter out the noise if it bothers you or I recommend modifying the audio output. If you don't mind a little noise, then a female to female RCA adapter will work as well. Then you can plug a single male ...

Re: Korg Polysix vs. Roland Juno 106

Now, I've been offered a Korg Polysix in perfect working condition, though the battery have never been replaced, for approx. 873€/$1073USD and a Korg Juno 106 with a bad chip for 336€/$413USD. IMHO< I think the Juno 106 is the better deal. Juno 106 Pro: Midi, Excellent Bass, Strings, FX, Filter, an...

Re: Roland JD800 key issue

Good news! :D
Roland informs me that they`re going to replace the entire keyboard assembly free of charge.
I just pay for labour and shipping ($120) :dancer:

Fairlight review was pretty interesting

Thought this Fairlight review was pretty interesting, but what was that synth he was playing?

New music (Dj Nameless)

https://soundcloud.com/dj-nameless

Lot's of old analog gear on these tracks. However, with the advance of technology, it's getting easier to compose with a basic controller and software. I've always felt more comfortable around keyboards and flashing leds than softsynths.

Re: Roland JD800 key issue

I`ve given the JD800 to the Roland repair team. It`s costing more than I hoped, but at least it will be fixed properly.

Re: Roland JD800 key issue

Well, the keys still look really good. I hope the contact strips do the job.

Roland JD800 key issue

Well, I have a very nice Roland JD800, but many of the keys were not working. I've had some success at repairs and opened it, which is a labourous task. Inside, the key felt was fine, but glue had melted around the contract strips, probably causing contact failure. I called Roland and they say it wi...

Re: Drumulator vs. Drumatix vs. KPR-77

Yeah, the TR-606 is a great instrument and I like the ability to add and subtract parts on the fly. Still, the TR-606 is limited to something like 7 sounds, whereas the Drumulator has 12 sounds. I'm able to store something like 66 patches on the Drumulator and program some pretty serious sequences. ...

^^Hi, how's it going?
I'm going to second this idea. I think the Juno 106 is a perfect learning synth.

Drumulator vs. Drumatix vs. KPR-77

After checking em out, I feel an affinity towards the Emu Drumulator.
I like that the Emulator looks like a cash register, sounds like early hip-hop and has (12) 8bit sounds. The TR-606 and KPR-77 kinda make it up by being analog, portable, and better sequencers.

Re: Roland SH01

Roland had a chance to do something really cool with this synth. Instead it looks like they went for the quick buck and re-designed the SH-201 with a few more bells and whistles. If they had only implemented a real analog filter and added a drum machine, they might have a success. It's really sad th...

Re: Yamaha CS01 vs Novation BassStation

The BassStation is much better than the CS-01. The BassStation has MIDI, more controls, a faster envelope, a proper ADSR, better keys, etc. Both are fun to play.
