Proper cables for Monotron and Microbrute connectivity

Ok so I have some 3.5mm cables for connecting my Monotron Duo and Delay together, but when I would do that and plug headphones into the output synth, I would only hear sound in one ear. Wondering if there is a specific sort of 3.5mm cable I will need. Also, I picked up a pair of Korg Volcas (Bass an...

Re: Saying it's live with a laptop next ....

You are aware that some of their instruments may be entirely software based right? Like they could be using Thor or Dune as a synth, playing it live, but it runs on the laptop. Bands like Nine Inch Nails make heavy use of the MainStage program on their Macs to help control everything from the lights...

Re: Moog Sub 37 Vs Moog Sub Phatty

I watched the Sub 37 Modulation and Sequencing video last night and I hadn't realized how deep that synth was. Holy c**p did they pack a lot into it. I wonder if they will ever offer additional CV IN/OUT mods like they did for the Lil Phatty. Seems like it would be worth the price difference.

Re: Stacking oscillators on the Minibrute

It won't be polyphonic (multiple notes)...still monophonic (single note), just all the synths triggering together. In AG's video, he sets the note priority for the Minibrute to lower and the Microbrute to higher and uses the pairing as a duophonic synth. That was what I was referring to more than a...

Re: Stacking oscillators on the Minibrute

I don't have any of the synths you mentioned, but I'll share my experience with CV. I assume the synths mentioned each have CV/gate in AND out. Hopefully this will help. *SNIP* You can at least try it that way before spending cash on a CP-251. I'm not so sure about the Volca Beats. Old Korgs used H...

Stacking oscillators on the Minibrute

So I'm considering both a Mini and a Microbrute and I'm watching AG's video of syncing the 2 together. I already have a Minitaur and was already considering using CV to run the Minitaur from whatever is going on in the Minibrute. I also have a Freqbox and I know it's possible to link them up to have...

Re: New Novation Bass Station?

But why won't roland rerelease the 303? I know that x0xb0x's are functionally identical but for some reason I just really need that roland logo you know? Does anyone sell Roland logos you can put on gear? People sell Fender stickers so you can build a Jazzmaster w/parts and have the right sticker i...

Re: What will Korg release next?

Funny. I love the look of the new Volca line. I need a spare $150 or 2. or 3 :) I'm using things like the Monotrons to entice my 2 young daughters (5 and 7 1/2) into a world of musical fun. Plus my guitars and such of course. Awesome when my youngest spent a good chunk of the last year walking over ...

Re: New Novation Bass Station?

Watching this video fro Future Music about the Bass Station II. When I first saw it I thought it reminded me of something, besides it's original version. From the initial angle of this video, this looks like a much smaller JP 8000 to me :)

Re: Minibrute Meet The MS-20 Mini

I finally got to play a Minibrute yesterday. Guitar Center in Louisville has one to mess with after all this time. REALLY enjoyed myself, came up w/a nasty distorted arpeggio that sounded fun. I was glad that I was the only person in teh keybaord room when I would sweep the noise mix up tho heh. The...

Oh well, i'm not going to pry.
He doesnt' work for Moog Music, the company producing keyboards. He works for the Moog Foundation, the non-profit organization. http://moogfoundation.org/

Re: Korg Mini MS-20

Wonder why Korg didnt do a mini MS10 first. It would be cheaper to make (less oscs etc). But it would surely sell just as well. Maybe they will do both if they sell enough MS20? It would be fun to patch both boxes together! B/c if they had done the MS-10, people would have whined and complained "Wh...

Re: Which monosynth should I get?

Someone was trying to claim the Foundation wasn't a good value I think both here and over on GS last year. Someone was dead wrong. I thought it was you smacking them down actually, but I could be wrong :) It looks pretty great. I'm curious about the new Cell 48 and 90 setups. Not that I have the mo...

Re: Korg Mini MS-20

They wouldn't move one cent on the Minibrute, but they didn't need to either. If you never get a product shipped to you to sell, you never have to budge on price :) Nah, the Moog phattys do nothing for me anymore. I'm done with simple 2-vco monosynths. It has to be something different like the MS-2...
