Right now, it's in vogue in an ironic vapor-wave kind of way. Get around it.

Re: Most abused synths/tones

yes - sidechaining has become even worse than autotune or any other recent bandwagon-atrocity you care to mention i say HAS BECOME since it has always been known as ducking, and is readily patchable on many modular synths and old compressors as-is. the thing is people used to use it with restraint,...

[...] "Blade Runner CS-80" lead [...] Nothing wrong with that. Gorgeous sound. What´s pathetic is all those wanna-be CS80 impersonations executed on cheapo keyboards, like "it doesn´t take a CS80 to do this..." Give me a break...

In this decade, it's got to be Modern Talking.

Re: Yamaha CS-80 video demonstration

AG went into a rage upon hearing language insinuating he might not be the best as he has already demonstrated a CS-50 (and believes that if people wanted a demo of the cs-80 they should just listen to his demo twice) and threatened them with making a synth demo that consists entirely of him talking ...

Re: Mode Machines SID

I'm never quite sure what the point of these SID things ever is, it's like taking the sound of a harp and controlling it using a harmonica.

Apparently the first 300 units will have SID chips and after that they'd be swapping over to emulation.

Re: more 8-bit shhhhhtuff.

The delay thing is just programming one of the voices to be a slapback echo for the other one. So it's not really a delay you just program in delay trails manually.

Re: First attempt: Gameboy advance chiptune

Also promod should increase the output quality of the GBA. :lol: I think that the appeal is that it sounds rough and distorted. Can't beat shitty outputs for warm distortion The appeal of chiptunes is overcoming limitations to create a lot from very, very little. I think that modifying the internal...

Re: First attempt: Gameboy advance chiptune

seems like you're going to a lot of effort for a result not adding up to it. If you really want to sequence externally why not swap to a software/sample based solution? Also promod should increase the output quality of the GBA.

Also go for LSDJ not nanoloop IMO.
