Set your compressor up with a threshold of around 15dB, a ratio of about 5:1 and VERY short attack and release times - say 2mS and 4mS respectively. Boosting the output may or may not be necessary, but you can work that out as required. Hope this helps..! :) Right, the trick for setting up the atta...
I used to use headphones a lot for mixing. Then I have read you should never use headphones to mix.....to only use them for checking to make sure nothing funky is going on. My monitors are KRK RP-8s and they definitely do what they are supposed to do.

How synthesizers seduced me......it was a time when MTV was getting started, they used to actually show music videos all the time. Anyway, my family had an upright piano...nobody played it ever. But when I came home from school alone I would noodle around. The piano was a pretext for what would seal...

Jup-6: This is one tricky synth to take apart and work on. Try to contact the guys that run synthcom.com, the trusted maker of the Europa mod - they...

Mike is cool. Before one of the shows at a local brewery he was wearing a ballcap and appeared stage side to feel out the crowd. Nobody knew who he was without sporting "the hair" but I nonchalantly walked over, introduced myself, passed a complement, and then shook his hand....one of my favorite mo...
My guess would be one or more bad filter ic's. For each of the six voices there is a filter that operates in tandem. Another possibility is the slider has lost communication with the filter ic somehow. I'm not an electronics expert by far....but if it were me (and I love my Juno so very much) the ne...

It seemed to me that Moog always designed things in accordance with being pleasing to the ear, not necessarily what was the easiest or most cost-effective thing to do. The ladder filter is an excellent example of this since it is actually what would be considered a flawed design that introduces some...

For synth work I need to have instant access to physical sliders, knobs and buttons. The mouse doesn't get me off....I would need to buy keyboard controllers for the softsynths anyway.... Now, that said, it is very interesting to note I am relying very heavily on software for my sampling needs - it ...
