Re: New Roland and/or Korg synths using REAL analog filters?

Nice Monotron demo.... At least! I'm gonna be able to emulate that incredible riff at 3:21: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUdCpWlAIo8 And I ARE SERIOUS.... Wow, I've read about the way Madonna stays relevant by paying the latest hot producer to make her an album that represents whatever's popular ...

Re: New Roland and/or Korg synths using REAL analog filters?

Would have been nice if they added at least cv/gate jacks - should be an easy mod though.

Re: I wonder...

Get a x0xb0x if you're not willing to shell out for a 303. To my ears, and the ears of many others it sounds the same and has an easier to work with sequencer + MIDI.

Re: Best way to touch-up Vinyl recordings in Audacity?

They have protection that prevents you from just copying the tracks straight off the cd, but you can get a program that will copy the digital information and convert it to mp3 on the fly. Technically, yes the quality can be lower if you're converting to mp3, but that's a bit of an exaggeration as wi...

Re: MFB Nanozwerg, Urzwerg, Microzwerg & Megazwerg

I recently bought a Synth II and I don't have any issues with tuning. After about 15 minutes or so it's very stable. As far as build quality, I think it's fine for studio use - you can tell the pots are really cheap though because some of them have a weird feel as if they're too loose. Not something...

Re: School me on Sequencers

You are wrong. ;) The default value for the first of three programmable sequences is Pitch. I haven't figured out an easy way to do rests though - best I could manage was setting the 2nd sequence to "Amp Level" and setting that to -63 for a rest. This means the amp level has to be set at 63 for this...

Re: Windows 7 / USB Audio interface?

Must be shitty drivers. I'm using an M-Audio Delta 44 (not USB, but still not a very new interface)and the native drivers work great. Then again, if both interfaces had the same issue, it could be your PC's chipset drivers. Very few people ever install updated ones.

Re: Alpha Juno Aftertouch

Pretty sure that's normal.

There's a great editor for the Alpha Juno that can be loaded as a VST within your DAW, and this way you can automate all the parameters.

I don't think the noisy chorus is a defect.

Re: Overheated Equipment

If there are no vents on the bottom I can't imagine it making a difference - if it's the Duet that gets hot, I'd be more worried about the towel catching fire.

Re: Kawai K1m: What Do you Think?

I have a K1-II and I hate it. Boring to program, boring to play - just an all around uninspiring synth. I've tried to go back and find some use it for but I always wonder why I bother afterwards when I could have used Cameleon 5000 through a bitcrusher or 12 bit sampler to make something way cooler ...

Best part is when they're tweaking the cutoff: "This is the popular knob." :lol:
