Re: TR-707 vs TR-626

the 707 sounds way better. the interface is A LOT better. the mixer is really good to have and did I mention the sounds are way WAY better? the 626 is a cheap piece of c**p and isn't worth more than 30-40 bucks. the 626 has no dinsync out. no mixer (which basically makes it useless for jamming, unle...

Re: REVERB AND TAPE ECHOS.

I keep using Abletons built in Reverb for everything. either that or my Roland RV-100 spring reverb, which was 150 bucks and sounds amazing.

Re: I guess I’m just not a big fan of DCO’s

I was wondering though Otto, any suggestions for a mono VCO synth? (vintage or new). New ones: I have already spotted the Spectral Audio Neptune II, the Tom Oberheim SEM and the Future Retro XS...they are all VCOs! Anyone might know which one sounds more "vintage"? you can't go wrong with an SH-101.

Re: NEW DSI Tetr4 -4 voices of Mopho In a Box!

I'd love the editor to work as a VST and do automations in my fav DAW.

Or can it do this? If not, why the heck not? That would make it like an analog VST, almost.

EDIT: Anyone who know of any analog gear at all that can be automated as a VST in a DAW?

Re: laptop suggestions for mixing

if you have a chance on trying OSX first, I'd do that before putting that much money into a MacBook. I bought a Mac Mini mainly as a media center for my tv, and have found to dislike OSX over the time I've spent using it. Windows 7 is really hard to beat these days. no point in buying a MacBook to r...
