Re: Evolve or stick to it

Hmm, I dont know. Its certainly a subjective sort of matter involving taste thats for sure. What may sound "dated" to one, may be "brilliance" to another. Ideally, Good music is good music no matter when the music in question happened to come out. Some things are just better left untouched. Certain ...

Re: Restructuring my setup

Just curious what exactly are you trying to accomplish musically? Concerning the ES-1, I can understand being displeased with only 1 effects processor. But have you tryed resampling? The ES has the ability to resample a sound infinetly with effects applied, with ZERO quality loss. This opens up an e...

Re: The first thing you sampled

One of the first, if not the first, was an answering machine message from the neighbor calling in a noise complaint about our band - "this is your back door neighbor, and if you don't stop that, I'm going to call the police." Of course we used it in a song. He really did call the police, too. :shoc...

Re: So my buddies and I are starting a band...

No Microkorg or Microkorg XL? I havent used many vocoders, but the one on the OG microkorg kicks some a*s if used properly.

Re: What is my best option after Electribe esx-1?

Why not just buy another ESX? I dont think your going to get all the real time controls and sound manipulation possibilities that the ESX has on any other machine currently out there on the market (with the exception of course of the MachineDrum UW, but you might find the 20 seconds of sample time l...

Re: Do anyone have the "Akai old-school drum kits" archive?

Hmm not sure which one your talking about. But when I bought my 2000XL back in 01' it came with a few disks. One of them ( a zip) comes with all kinds of vintage sounds. 808's, 909's, 606's dmx, linn, mpc-60, mpc-3000 etc...
It comes in handy from time to time :mrgreen:

Re: Will the Linn drum ll be released?

I think the Beat Wang went belly up to tell you the truth. All kinds of people on the MPC-forums got scammed buying some buggy Kang software, they never got their money back either.

I do hope the Linn drum still drops. Judging from the specs thus far it could be an MPC killer :mrgreen:

Re: Yamaha - enemies of synthsis!

Sometimes I forget that Yamaha Owned part of Korg for about a good span of 7 years or so? Wonder how Korg would of turned out had they never bought back their stock from Yamaha in 1993.

Re: Why do U like the Electribe ESX1 so much?? TIPS

If you happen to have a turntable lying around, you can always sample in 45RPM speed, and than pitch the samples back down in the ESX, to get more out of the 4 minutes+ sample time limitation.

Re: One is not enough!

I have the Microkorg, but I want the newer XL(for the piano patch, split timbre feature, new sounds etc..) and the microsampler, just to round out my collection :lol: I also wouldnt mind having an MS-2000 (gotta love all the knobs), I'll be lucky if I ever get around to actually getting an Emulator ...

Re: Editing on MicroKorg vs MicroKorg XL

Im currently debating whether or not to get the XL myself. My main reason for wanting the XL is the piano patch they added to the list of programs. But Im unsure like you, how the layout is configured in comparison to the OG microkorg.

Re: Rant about the lack of modern hardware samplers.

I agree with you on the sample CD's Balma =D> The "hunt" or the quest, as I like to call it, is atleast 75% of the fun when it comes to hunting down sample material particularly on vinyl. Its like a rush or a state of euphoria when you find that beat or break on a unsuspecting looking record that yo...
