Re: Roland Boutique

But then when you consider that the minimum wage here is about three times higher than in the US, we can visit the doctor for free when we're sick etc. things don't seem so bad. :D [OT] Australia seems a lovely place; the Australians I've met have been good folk, and the country is definitely on my...

Re: First mixer advice

I thought, that more than 10 years of using it at home studio and live was enough to offer an advice. Of course I didn't make AB comparitions - I'm not proffesional reviewer. I heard other mixers and yes, there are differences in sound, but OP asked for advice on cheap first mixer - I think Behring...

What is digital bite? Is it like analogue bite, but less discrete?

Re: Tracks featuring Matrix-12 and Pittsburgh + SH-101

I like these, a lot. The sounds are fantastic, and the writing is good. The only criticism I have is that it feels like you've overcompressed the mix: the individual tracks feel like they're too hot, and competing for headroom. Aside from that, really really good. Totally jealous of your kit! Cheers

Re: Rhodes House #2

I love that initial bass, the arp part and the lead. Fantastic sound design and arrangement. I really don't like the drums though, to me they don't sit comfortably in the mix with the rest. Perhaps they're too dry or perhaps they're not the right drum sounds? I'm no expert on four to the floor styl...

Rhodes House #2

Good evening fellow VSE'rs, I finally got to grip with Ableton Live, and after a family-free hour messing around with the Minibrute, the MS-20, and the Arturia Beatstep, I came up with this. It's been a lot of fun. Live has been painless to use, and I find myself writing.. dance? with the Beatstep. ...

Re: Monthly Patching Workout 2015

These are rather good, Pflosi. I particularly enjoyed the percussive track: modulars (in the right hands!) clearly have great potential for creating interesting variations in rhythm tracks.

Re: Korg Might Be Up To Something.

Have any of you actually PLAYED an original MS-20? I've owned three. The knobs were s**t... they offered no resistance whatsoever, and felt like the crappiest things ever compared to their contemporaries. Yes, Mini knobs feel like they could tolerate less abuse, but at least they offer resistance. ...

Re: BeatStep Pro

Thanks for the mini-review, loungedumore. I have the original Beatstep, and whilst I love its simplicity, it was a bit annoying that the CV/trig wouldn't work with my MS-20. Good to hear that works now.

Re: Yamaha Reface

Yeah that's how I do it too. Great minds and all that. :) Got a perfect example of this, actually. Here's version 1 of a track, just a Nord Lead with few effects and a drum beat: http://www.clubbedtodeath.net/download.php?seed.mp3 And here's version 2, heavily processed through a Line 6 filter Pro,...

Re: Yamaha Reface

Another way to avoid the "sound design" distraction is to make sounds in your downtime and throw them in a sampler. You still have the ability to modify if needed, but the essential palette is there. Good suggestion, although I sort of do it the other way around. I sometimes record the basic chord ...

Re: Yamaha Reface

mm yes, seems to me they're too expensive/solidly built to be toys and too limited to be professional tools, so being kinda in between means a limited market surely? :? Too limiting to some perhaps, but then something like the YC or the CP I could see myself having a fantastic time with. They won't...
