Re: Any forums for the Novation KS series?

And I still can't find any good reasons not to do all programming in performance mode ;) Remember, although you can build performance patches out of the basic monotimbral patches, any changes you make to chose individual parts are recorded with the performance patch -- leaving the original monotimb...

Re: Any forums for the Novation KS series?

Great info there, Angus, much appreciated. This would mean - if I'm not totally confused - that the lfo's can act as envelopes themselves...? Sort of -- you can make LFOs 'One shot' (see LFO section), which means they only cycle once upon key press. Think of them as a limited, repeatable envelope. ...

Re: Any forums for the Novation KS series?

Great, Dano, thanks for the input. I was flipping through the manual and couldn't find any mention of the oscillators having dedicated envelopes. I would really like this to be the case. The interface is quite intuitive, but quite a bit is hidden in menus so I'll have to do more research. Any other...

Re: Any forums for the Novation KS series?

Hi Hugo Like several here, I'm a Novation KS owner. I bought the KS4, the 4 octave keyboard version, a few years ago. It's a great synth - never going to get rid of it. I strongly suggest you download and print out the manual, which you can find here: http://www.novationmusic.com/support/ks_rack/ Th...

Looks like I'll have do this tune proper at some point then, with an extra-sprinkling of funk.

Re: A CS80 in action.....2009.

i dont mean this as any sort of shameless plug or anything. im posting this cause i figured that folks might want to hear a CS80 outside of it's "usual context", i.e. strictly electronic music. Quite a departure from the stuff of yours I already have! Good stuff, Mr D2. Nice to see you're a fan of ...

Re: AN1x demo....finally

-->ryryoftokyo, I have nothing against sounds that are unusual, but I would really like to hear what they really sound like instead of on some website that compresses it to h**l. Maybe if you recorded a audio-only clip and put up for download, we could get a better idea. Seconded. It sounds like th...

Vocode it then, or do something similar; voice parts don't translate easily to instruments, precisely because of the extra layers of texture you lose.

Re: Switched On Rutter: Blow, blow thou winter wind

It sure is a lot harder than you'd think I wouldn't have picked that, that's for sure! Vocal textures to synth? Complicated. J.S. Bach works far better . You could also try adding aftertouch to your patches, to give them more expression. Orchestration is a demanding task at the best of times, but w...

Re: "Old Creek On The Witch Mountain" Part 1 & 2

Oh, this is good! Reminds me of Tim Blake's best stuff. If I may, to echo other comments - you need to add a bit of depth to the mix. ie. panning parts left, right to position them, perhaps with some of the non-musical parts further away (quieter, reverb with long reverb times). On the delayed arp (...
