Re: Xanadu movie (yeah, the 1980's with Olivia Newton-John)

I never cared much for the movie but I always liked the soundtrack. Great ELO songs and ONJ at her peak. I still have the vinyl and there's a great shot of the Arp2600 in the ineer sleeve pictures...The girls aren't bad looking either :)

Re: 1u rack pad synth

The Ensoniq MR Rack can make great pads. You could also look into the Alesis S4 or for a bit more $$, the E-mu Morpheus.

Re: TX-81z vs FB-01 more similar than different or not?

Program Change is much slower on the TX81z and I like how simpler it is to setup splits, layers or assign voices to midi channels from the front buttons of the FB.

It's always been that way. Nothing new under the sun.

Re: Which synth do you think has the nicest knobs ?

Those Kobol knobs are huge!!

And while I never played one, the clear Gleeman Pentaphonic sports the oddest looking knobs ever.

Re: so Juno 60's are about £1000 now? what the h**l?!

There are two Juno-60s on Kijiji right now. One with DCB/Midi converter for 2000$ and another one for 1900$. :shock: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-piano-keyboard/city-of-toronto/roland-juno-60-with-roland-md-8-midi-dcb-interface/1213696053?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true http://www.kijiji.ca/v-piano-keyboa...

Re: Synth for 8/16 bit sounds.

It's already more usable than the MidiNES which has no envelope. I didn't keep mine for that reason alone.

Re: Synth for 8/16 bit sounds.

Any synthesizer with a set of basic waveforms (square, saw, pulse) will do. FM can also do square-wave types well.

Best bet would be a PSS-480/680. It has midi, is multitimbral and makes a great controller.

Re: Why are patches missing on my Proteus 2?

These midi/usb cables work fine and are very affordable.

Re: Why are patches missing on my Proteus 2?

Do you have a midi interface for using between the computer and the module? You'll need that and also a program to load the files and send them to the Proteus.

Re: Some synth noise for your enjoyment (or not)

That's what your music on soundcloud put together reminded me of. I haven't heard that album in a long time though.
