Re: Cheap Groovebox for Synthpop/EBM

You're not the first person to suggest the RM1x, so I think that's what I'll be going with. Thanks a lot for the help.

Cheap Groovebox for Synthpop/EBM

A friend of mine is quite literally a starving artist, and wants to get into music, so I made a deal with him to buy him a cheap groovebox in return for a painting. He is looking to make something that incorporates EBM, synthpop, and industrial along the lines of Alien Sex Fiend, And One, and Clan o...

Re: Synthesizer for Industrial?

Without starting the EBM vs Industrial debate, Industrial has come to mean a lot of different things, and it would help if you were more specific as to what style you're referring to. Are you set on a true analog, or do you just want subtractive synthesis to make analog-type sounds? While analog syn...

Re: Ridiculous eBay 'Buy-it-now' and starting bids.



Yamaha DX-5 for $1895 BIN.

An extra octave and twice the polyphony of the DX7-II, but twice the weight, no performances, and nearly 6 times the price.

Dual-Osc Polysynth on a Budget

I'm thinking about getting a dual-oscillator polysynth to add to my rig. I want to use it for interesting pads and leads, and maybe some evolving atmospheric sounds. I'm no master of subtractive synthesis, so something that is easy to program would be ideal. I also own a DSI Evolver, Akai AX-60, Yam...

Re: How to make analog synthesizer sounds like C64?

But does the C64 have any audio output? How would you record it? Or send the sound to a mixer? Can't remember it having any audio outs back when I had a C64..but then again, I only ever used it for games. No audio outs per se, but there are options. 1. Run the RF output into an RF modulator and con...

Re: How to make analog synthesizer sounds like C64?

I thought about building one for a while, but decided to just get a C64, MSSIAH, and an extra SID chip. It's cheaper. You can control it with MIDI, and there's an on-board sequencer, drum-machine, and multitrack program. For live performances, you don't necessarily need the screen. Once you get fami...
