It has two DCOs and two wavetable oscillators.

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

I own two synths with DCOs - an Evolver and an Oberheim Matrix 6. Certainly, the Evolver has a certain sharpness to it, but it can do dead on a Pro One when pushed, and I can testify to the Matrix 6's well-deserved reputation for warm, buttery pads. I don't completely disagree with Otto, but I think...

Re: Roland SH201 killed me

I'm also a bit shocked that a Moderator would call the participants in a thread "Lame" You get flustered quite easily old chap. I suggest a nice cup of camomile tea and a biscuit, before you get an attack of the vapours. Boy am I tempted to try out one of these SH201s -- I might even sell my Nord t...

That'd be pretty easy patch to recreate, I'd imagine.

Re: How do you make your rhythm tracks?

I kind of write the drum tracks alongside the rest of the tune, starting with a regular kick/snare to get things going. Usually I play some drum sounds from a sampler, or chop up samples and paste them part-by-part in Sonar until I have a phrase. This is usually done across 3 tracks, along for filte...

You could try saving up for an MS-20, depending on your budget.

Re: Nord Lead 1 vs 2

With the Nord Lead 2 or Rack 2, you'll need to get a battery-backed PCMCIA SRAM card if you want to store edits to drum patches. I had to get one of these, and it wasn't cheap - about £60!

Just something to bear in mind...

Re: over-consumerism

I say BUY BUY BUY until you've found the thing that seems to suit most of your needs, and then SELL SELL SELL until you just have that (or those) which suits (suit) your needs. Don't let price define what works for you. I would rather have this JX than an MS-20. I'll spank your MiniMoog with my MS-...

Re: How in the WORLD do you get THIS Waveform??

Zamise - that last one looks like a square wave on OSC1 and a sawtooth on OSC2, modulated by an LFO. There's some flanger or chorus in there too, spitting out some higher frequencies.

:shock:

Buy a spade, trowel, and fork and a barrow - and do it yourself for a fraction of the price. Become buff from all the exercise, score with hot chick and have money left over to buy more synths.

Sorted.

Re: The right AC Adapter for Roland SH 101?

As I understand it, the synth will only draw the current in requires - so as long as there's enough amps being supplied by the adapter, you'll be okay.

The key thing is to make sure the adapter voltage is the same as the specs - a 12v supply connected to a 9v synth could fry circuitry.

Re: Arturia Origin Keyboard - Wow!

I'll add that I cannot understand such rampant negativity When someone extolls the virtues of a piece of software they confess to not owning, and of the company that works tirelessly to provide it -- it does raise suspicions of a public relations exercise.
