Re: One synth songs

Just go back and look at what we did in the other thread, and make the new competition identical to that one

Re: One synth songs

Exactly: name the account "one synth comp 2017," then when people are ready to submit their songs, they send you an email, and once the deadline hits, they get the pasword. After a few days, voting is closed and someone wins! OR We do that thing they do in sports where they start off with a lot of c...

Re: so Juno 60's are about £1000 now? what the h**l?!

I actually lost money selling my second one out of shipping ignorance. I hope the buyer loves that synth! I should have held in to it as an investment... Although they are bulky

Re: One synth songs

In the past we've just made a SoundCloud account for the competition, and gave the participants the password so they can submit their song, then posted the embedded links in the competition post.

Sometimes we don't get enough participants to separate them into categories

Re: Drum sampler recommendation

The electrons have a dedicated following, but they are certainly pricy. What about the Volca sample? You also have electribes, boss SP samplers, and of course the classic MPC series, which may be the perfect tool for the job.

Re: SD memory class/speed difference with Korg or other gear

The DP32SD is picky about some SD cards. If you use a card that's not supported, like I'm doing with one of mine, you occasionally get recording errors and have to do the take again. Could be a nightmare if you're trying to capture a performance! I have no idea if the issue is related to the card's ...

If you host a one synth, I'll do a new song for it.

Re: Why You post music? AND to Youtube mainly? Out of curios

https://youtu.be/GBN4qbbNGpw Check our how many times the same melody changes in this Astral Projection / Trilithon collaboration. Each time they play what is essentially the same melody again harmonized to a different chord, it sounds like a whole new part, and the same phrase stays interesting th...

Re: Why You post music? AND to Youtube mainly? Out of curios

What I try to achieve is something out of the most common pop/rock music intro-verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus-chorus, but while still well listenable catchy melodies. But if I take that verse-chorus-verse-chorus structure as a "template" to follow for my tunes, and some strict rules, then ...

Re: One synth songs

Can the drums come from a different source or is that cheating? Cheating! For my 1 synth competition entry, I used the JX-8P to create every drum sound from scratch. The only non JX-8P equipment was the effects processer doing basic reverb/ delay, the sequencer playing it, and the Akai s2000 I used...

Re: First Synth: Korg MS-20 Mini vs Roland Boutique Synth

+1 for the JP-08. You can do so much more with the addition of chords, pads, and other polyphonic synth sounds than you would be able to do starting out with a mono synth. The JP-08 really gives you a nice combination of versatility and quality in a small affordable package. It very well could be th...

Re: noob's gear setup

Slaving the SQ-1 to things is a bear, since it doesn't have midi in. I've had mixed experiences using it with the USB connection as well, and if you're sending a trigger from a drum machine or sequencer to sync it, make sure the tempo is playing for at least one bar before pressing play, or it will ...

Re: Sound Engineering Techniques for Dance Music

So taking all this in account how did Orbital manage to get away with recording Chime on their dad's cassette deck? It was a different era then, with different expectations for how a finished product should sound, and / or, proper use of texture. The move towards clean, separated, hi fi sounding da...
