Re: What was the cheapest Synth you ever bought?

AAgh, I was able to buy a Moog Source for $475 a few days ago, claimed to be in pristine condition. I was the first person to call but the seller was about 60 miles away and I wasnt able to drive out until the weekend (obviously didnt want it bad enough..) He offered to deliver it for a small fee wh...

Re: Cars "Hello again" classic sync sound

See attachment. Sync VCO 2 to VCO 1. Make VCO 2 a square wave. Set both VCOs to 16'. Modulate pitch of OSC 2 with Env 1 (.75 or so). Set Envelopes accordingly. Filter is wide open in the picture but you may want to cut high frequencies a little. Awesome!! Thanks. So it looks like the part that was ...

Re: Cars "Hello again" classic sync sound

Whoops.. I picked the first video I saw but I KNOW ive seen one with him playing that on the JP8. Ill see if I can find the other.. :oops: Regardless, its the same sound No Doubt uses in Just a Girl and at one point their keyboardist was using a Jupiter 8 live for that sound, so I know its possible....

DX7 vs TX7?

Ive been wanting to pick up an FM synth for a while now and with its popularity in the 80s/90s the DX7 seemed like the obvious choice. Im pretty picky on condition and most DX7s I see are beat up pretty badly. I also dont know if I can find room for one, as im pretty happy with my current setup. I s...

Re: Recession, what recession?

I think prices have definitely gone down. Jupiter 8s are now selling for about $3300 average when a few months ago they were selling for about $4000 to $4500. Prophet 5s have been selling for about $2000 average, when a few months ago they were selling for $2800 to $3500. Minimoogs are now selling f...

Re: Great VSTs for Mac?

U-NO-62! Its a Juno 60 emulation. I liked it so much I decided I had to go buy an actual Juno 6 :)

Juno 6 LFO trig button

Ive been wanting a Juno 6 or 60 for a while ever since I sold my 106 a few years ago. A Juno 6 showed up locally and I decided to snag it. :mrgreen: Cosmetically it is perfect, but the LFO trig button doesnt work. Seller didnt know too much about it and I got some $$ knocked off because of it. I was...

Re: PRICES : the most heated yet absent debate

Conversely there are lots of synths that are cheaper than they deserve to be. Buy those. A few years ago I passed up many Jupiter 8s in classifieds and on ebay. Some for $1500 or $2000 in pristine condition. I thought they were at the peak of the market (and I didnt necessarily have the cash then) ...
