Re: Guess that string/brass synth

Tassman ? Excellent guess, but It's not modular: you'll have to be more systematic in your reasoning. Also, it's not anything by Arturia, hard or soft. I can tell you one of the recent guesses is pretty close, at least geographically. Although If no-one guesses soon, it'll be me getting that foot r...

Re: Guess that string/brass synth

If it's American, all I can off the top of my head are the Multivox ones. MX-3000? Not sure what you mean by "unison" here though. It's not a Multivox. And by unison, I mean proper unison - notes doubled up with additional oscillators, slightly detuned. I can't set the detune amount, though, only t...

Re: Guess that string/brass synth

Not a Korg, Synthex or Roland.

Some more hints: it's North American in origin. It has two oscillators per note, and a maximum of 32-note polyphony.

A bit of applied thinking might find the answer..!

Re: Best DAW on PC?

Cakewalk Sonar. Plug-in delay compensation that works flawlessly, pattern sequencer, full effects envelope control, and lots of nice mastering plugins. If the producer version's too much, you can always opt for the much cheaper studio version, although you might want to buy the Sonitus:FX effects su...

Re: Guess that string/brass synth

whatever it is, it sounds great! i'd love to hear some dry, unlayered tracks! Thanks! Here's the strings minus reverb and delay: http://www.clubbedtodeath.net/mp3/mystery-strings-dry.mp3 Mystery Strings - dry (mp3) To clarify further, it's not a Yamaha, or an ARP, or an Oberheim. It does have a uni...

Re: Guess that string/brass synth

Thanks James! Good first guess, but sadly miles off the mark.

It's:
- not any kind of Nord
- not a modular synth

Guess that string/brass synth

Morning all, Having spent a few days playing with my recent acquisition, I thought I'd treat you all to a listen, and entreat you to guess what synth it is. The only external effects used were delay and reverb, after a touch of compression. It's a multitrack recording, one track for the strings and ...

Re: Are the old Electribes getting more expensive/respected?

I know that the EA-1 isn't going to stand up to my MS2000R Sure, but then you're not even aiming for the same thing when you go for an EA-1 instead of an MS2000. After reading this thread, I tried hard to think about what precisely I liked about the EA-1. It's got to be the filter and the brute-for...

Re: Are the old Electribes getting more expensive/respected?

I would've kept my ER-1, if it had had better kick and snare. Very easy to program.

The EA-1 though, that was sweet. If ever there was a VA that should've been made analogue, that was it. Loved that thing, but it had to give way to a Fender Rhodes Stage 73 Mk I. :D

Re: Real analog or VA?

You'd better record that oboe on tape, otherwise you lose that real analogue oboe feel. Oboe tape compression, that's where it's at.

Re: first thing you do when getting a new synth.

Put it in the exact place of the other synth that I have just sold.

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

But how about VAs versus DCO synths though? I've just heard something on the grapevine: rumour has it that Roland may be working on a DCO version of the SH-201 - with potentiometer controls too, not encoders. And discrete components with a real analogue signal path! Can you imagine??
