Re: 909 or 808 for under $1,000????

don't hold your breath, they're not coming down in prices anytime soon.

An 808 has sold for 3000$ on eBay recently, and none have sold for less than 1200$.

The 909 goes for at least 1000$, usually 1200+.

Re: Do people get addicted to flipping synths?

I've learned to deal with lowballers, i always send a super pc answer like thanks for your interest etc etc. Some people just can't themselves, even on this forum. Oftentimes I'll put stuff at the highest price it can sell and people write to tell me I'm way off and that they'll buy it for this more...

Thanks Micke, it makes sense.

Do you know the secret to the Korg s/n too?

Re: What is the Oldest Piece of Gear in Your Studio?

Unless it's a very low serial number it was most likely built in 1983 or later. If the two first digits of the s/n are lower than *26* it was built in late '82. Here is the info I found on AH from Mike Kent concerning Roland s/n : "From November of 1980 to February of 1989 the months were shown in ...

Re: elka raphsody

Yes the Rhapsody is great, be it the 490 or 610.
The 610 seems more common, it varies in prices but is more commonly seen in the 300$ price range.

Good point, you have to love synths to know enough to flip, or hate them I guess.

Re: Do people get addicted to flipping synths?

I think there's no shame in flipping synths and I admit in doing it as often as I can! People that actually use synths are glad to pay the price for the one they want rather than the one they happen to find. They are also happy to pay for a synth that's been tested and serviced rather than take a ch...

Way to moderate, maybe you should give people a little more credit.

Re: Polivoks+ JP8000 for Prophet 08?

If i were in your situation I'd do a partial trade for the P08 with the JP8000 and some cash.
I'd keep the Polivoks.
Or maybe trade the JP8000 and Juno 106.

Re: The Official 'Secrets of the Studio' Thread!

I agree with you except about monitors.

Studio monitors don't need to be high-end, but they need to be somewhat neutral and you need to know their sound so you can make mixes that sound good on most equipment.

Re: Batle of the dual filter: CS-30 vs. CS-40m vs. Korg DV-800

I had the CS-40m and CS-20m and really didn't like them either, sure they have a bunch of features but the sound is not up to par with most other synths. The sine wave mixed in at the end was probably made to compensate for the lack of balls of the oscillators, the ring mod doesn't track from the ke...

Re: Classic Roland TR-808 beats on Youtube

Great work, funny as the Linndrum and 808 are my two only drum machines and I never thought in replicating those patterns, it was fun to see. I agree with Z that the 808 has an extra something that's unique to it, but the Linndrum patterns were pretty authentic keep up the good work! what's next DMX...
