Re: Kurzweil ID

Looks like a piano + has power cord = is electric piano in some people's minds. That's it, no manual available online unfortunately but I figured things out enough for the performance. Couldn't work out how to select patches for any midi channels past 1 without just sending random program change me...

Re: Korg R3 v xiosynth

i personally would not go for a xiosynth. i've got a friend on youtube who's gone through 6 broken xio's. he loves the sound he just hates the package. so for me the xio is a no go area. x-station or nothing.

Re: New Roland Juno-Di

4/5 years seems pretty decent to me.

Re: New Roland Juno-Di

the conspiracy is that if there is an anlogue modeling card for the fantom G, roland thinks no-one will buy a v-synth. the conspiracy is roland is just trying to protect the v-synth.

Re: New Roland Juno-Di

not to mention the control surface upgrades, the sliders and the screen! i don't know yet if they do not want to sell a VA ARX card, or whether or not they can't. there is a big conspiracy theory among everyone (yes everyone ever) that roland doesn't want to release a VA arx card so people have to b...

Re: Yamaha are not really making any synths anymore

i think the reason is just most likely price.

Re: New Roland Juno-Di

they're marketing it as a "mobile synthesizer" so i have a weak hope it might be built nicely, the top looks metal which is cool, but what you see on the outside isn't everything either, they're saying it's very light which is just unsettling me :S it's the microkorg all over again in a way for me, ...

Re: New Roland Juno-Di

ITs probably 'casio' level... but I'm sur e they will sell a million of them because they are taking the Fantom hardware down past the "prosumer" gear level... like the MicroKorg did. that's one of the main things that turns me away from a ton of gear. Tactility is important. Big turn off for the x...

Re: Yamaha are not really making any synths anymore

Get this: RS14000 is coming soon!... In my dreams. They've had some severely under appreciated synths and groove gear in the years past. Its probably hard to wait 5 or 10 years for the market to realize it so they've moved on to what has worked for them more immediately, and not us synth gurus. Mig...

Re: New Roland Juno-Di

Roland seem to lack any forward progression these days. This keyboard will probably end in up in bargain bins soon. How on earth do you take a company that rolls out something like the V-Synth and say they aren't forward thinking. and just how many versions of the Fantom were rolled out, how many v...

Re: Do you aknowledge the importance of dance music

without getting off topic, h**l yes i acknowledge the importance of dance music as a whole, funnily enough EDM brought me into the world of synthesizers, and then my interests in music switched over from EDM to prog/metal. i still dabble into it and respect it, but it's definitely not my scene anymo...
