Re: Questions about Linn LM-2 LinnDrum

The standard Linn toms are 1a and 1b. The standard congas are 2a and 2b. This is based on the original bin files available in the Linndrum yahoo group. Send me your email and I'll give them to you. Electrongate can burn you these chips for 10$ each, Forat does it for 20$. You can do it yourself with...

Re: Fair Price for Jupiter-4?

I've seen some go for as much as 2500$ us in the last year on eBay. 1500$ us is the least I've seen them go. They're not rare but they're also discrete polyphonic synths used in many classic recordings, so they are desirable. In this economy I've sold gear for record prices, not everyone is hit by t...

Re: MIDI Retrofit kits for Linn LM-2 LinnDrum & Roland CR-78

I have one with the Jl Cooper kit, the notes are assignable but you can't store the modifications. It always starts up on the default mapping.

Re: Yamaha DX7 for Juno 106?

In terms of monetary value I'd say the Dx7 is worth about half of a Juno 106.

Re: Sample Electric Triggers?



Yes it's possible.

You can also sample sync tones from old drum machines and sync them with it.

Re: Do your synth desires ever get the better of you?

Buying synths is a really fun hobby, you get to try out many great instruments!
Im my case I buy at bargain price, keep the keepers, and sell the rest.

to do this :

A : you have to have lots of disposable income.
B : you have to buy low.

Re: live gig in a sandpitt, how to make the gears survive?

Congrats on making the effort, I'm terribly nervous myself and haven't performed since 2001.
Weed doesn't help for me, it makes it worse, way worse.

Re: Which Synth had the best Chorus?

The rhapsody 610 and 490 both have internal choruses.

I should add the Elka X-705 to my list as well since it uses Rhapsdy boards as I recall, i had one for a short while.

Re: Synths midi reaction time constant?

You mean triggering the drums by Live sequence, not internal. Like how the internal can lay the kick/snare right on top of each other, midi will trigger them more in succession. Right? Yes, when MIDI notes are sent from Ableton it's sloppier and more and more so when adding notes. It's very conveni...

Re: Synths midi reaction time constant?

I can totally let it go but for me slop starts at 1ms ;) Maybe the very small difference in numbers we observed is due to the interface, I use an Echo Layla's sole MIDI outstraight into the Expressionist, could be software too, tests were done in Live 7. To define more clearly what I mean by the dif...

Re: Synths midi reaction time constant?

In my experience the Expressionnist takes about 11-13ms to process MIDI to CV, If I recall correctly it varies for trigger types or CV/gate vs Hz/v. The jitter is under 3ms when sending only monophonic note info. MIDI slop can be a good thing sometimes, drum patterns with my MIDI Linndrum have a dif...
