Re: Alpha Juno Owners and the Decisions We Have to Make

For those of you out there who have the PG 300.. Does it make the Juno 2 just as attractive as a 106? I have an Alpha Juno 1 and a Juno 106 but no PG300. For me that would be a no even with the PG300. Even though the Alpha can do things the 106 can't (envelope/waveforms) I just think the 106 just s...

Re: G. Numan drops wise words - old vs new - blahblah

He was saying similar things about the JD-800 20 years ago, that he'd rather have it over a Minimoog or other analog synth, that he could recreate any of the old sounds with it. Clearly he's not nostalgic about the old gear. To each their own, I get where he's coming from though. As for the rest of ...

Axxe vs CS-5

I have the yamaha. Is it worth getting the ARP too or do they cover too much of the same ground? Any thoughts?

cheap hardware sequencer

Hi I'm thinking about getting a simple hardware sequencer, just as sketchpad. I'll still use Logic for putting tracks together properly, so it doesn't have to be too high end. Ideally I'd like it to have drums (or the facility to sample). I'm not so concerned about built in synthesis (though it woul...

vintage mono to complement Voyager OS

Hi, I've been thinking about getting a vintage mono lately. I have a Voyager OS, so ideally something that would complement that. Also I'm talking about the lower end of the price scale. MS10, CS5/10/15, stuff like that. Has anyone got a Voyager and any of those lower end monos or similar, and if so...

Rogue Music NYC - international orders

Hi I'm just wondering if anyone from outside the USA has bought from Rogue Music in New York. If so was did the synth arrive promptly and well packaged and was there any problems? I know about VAT and duty, so no need to mention that. I've used the search function here, but the comments all relate t...

Re: Would you swap a Polysix + SH-101 for a Jupiter 6?

The SH covers a monosynth sound, the Polysix covers an 80s poly sound with VCOs. Of course, neither are as pretty or BRIMMING WITH STATUS as the Jupiter 6, but with them you cover more bases. If I had £1600 and the choice, I think I'd go for the poly/sh for the reason stated above, but I'd be torn ...

Re: PG-1000 or new PC to run D-50 editor?

netbook? Parallels? Thanks for the suggestions, I hadn't heard of parallels, though it does sound like virtual PC from back in the day, hopefully it works better! As far as I can gather, I would need to buy windows and Snow leopard as well, which puts the total price at €260, a netbook would cost a...

PG-1000 or new PC to run D-50 editor?

Hi I'd like to make programming my D-50 easier. I know the options, PG-1000 and various software editors. The problem I have is that all the dedicated editors I can find online are PC based and I use a Mac. A PG-1000 (€250-€300) is going to cost me almost as much as a basic PC laptop (€350). I know ...

Re: What Synth is Right For Me?

If you have 4 grand just get a virus TI and a moog little phatty. Problem solved. I agree with that, the virus ti covers a lot of ground, and is to some degree, the big thing at present, surely used on a lot of today's recordings. Another alternative would be workstation type keyboard, Fantom, Moti...

Re: Juno 106... good or bad?

As Jexus states it is very similar to the Nord in that it is an easy to use synth that gets results and is not overly deep or off putting which makes such synths very appealing to a huge number of people who really do not care about deep synthesis and who only want to make music. The Juno strings a...
