Re: Anyone remember Music Technology magazine?

Love the older issues of "The Music Technology Magazine" ... which, thankfully, quickly dropped the "The" and "Magazine" parts :) There was just so much tech info packed into those mags. One of my favs is the September 86 (Volume 1, #2) issue and I still remember opening it for the first time (a lon...

Re: Moog Modular Ownet Manual

Howdy, Sorry for the late reply, but I have some info that may interest you. My Moog included a nice guide tucked into a box called "Setting up your Moog Synthesizer - A guide to Installation and Operation of Synthesizers I, II and III." 16 pages, 1970, published by R.A. Moog Inc., it contains secti...

Re: Organizing your synths

Sorry for the delay - I've put up a few photos of some of my slatwall installation in a new blog post. It didn't really fit my Retro Synth Ads blog, so I started a new blog - Retro Synth Labs. (See what I did there :lol: ) While writing the post, I came across the realization that I should have done...

Dude... pictures...

I have yet to see any slatwall-ed synth action that's NOT in guitar center.
Actually, that's a great idea for a blog post... give me a week to take a few good photos.

Re: Organizing your synths

Ha. I was going to quote that same bit of advice. Yeah, at some point I realized I wasn't building a studio; I was collecting synthesizers. It was getting to the point of being uncomfortable to work and difficult to connect everything at once or remember HOW everything was hooked up- even with my p...

Re: Finding inspiration by changing the setup

If you are going to buy a new synth, I agree with the two previous posts... the Evolver will definitely start getting the creative juices flowing for electronic music.

Re: Information needed for my Kawai K5000s please.

Hadn't pushed the power button on my K5000r in ages until I read your post. :D According to the start-up screen, mine is version 4.00. I took a look online and found an old K5000 page that pulled together some info, including version 4 features/fixes - hopefully this is a start for you... http://bel...

Re: Moog DSC Digital Sequential Controller ?

After posting the ad on my blog, I've had a few people ask for more information on the DSC - but no one has offered any new information yet.

I've sent questions to a few friends and am scanning some more old mags to see what turns up. Will see... :(
