Re: Recommend rack tube pre's

I think its probably been touched on before, but how do the Paia tube pres sound? Such as the tubehead rack, I was interested in what they had to say about tube technology and what it can do for sound but I dont know enough about it to know if its worth checking out or not?

Synth studio recording setup

For some time now Ive been trying to find a setup that works for me and my piles of gear. I like live jamming with lots of pieces of gear going at the same time, which makes me think I need just about everything hooked up to a mixer at the same time. But then when I feel like doing some recording, b...

Re: My new Roland Juno-6. WARNING: SYNTH p**n AHEAD

No I think it just looks that way in the picture because I have them angled differently. They're the same size.

Re: Roland DEP-5

I don't think it sounds bad at all, im not sure what sampling rate it uses and it is definitely early so I agree its probably not hi-fi but it really doesn't sound bad for how cheap you can get one. I think I paid $50 for mine and if it broke id definitely get another one.

Re: Roland DEP-5

Ive got one too, it sounds very good for a digital unit. The chorus seems to have a very wide range and the reverbs just sound great. Get IT!

Re: JP8000 or D50 ?

Kind of out of my price range, although I recently added up the cost of all my gear and often wonder what modern gear I could have gotten that would be just as capable and not take up as much space...

JP8000 or D50 ?

Ive got a JP8000 in really clean condition, but Ive never felt any connection to it and therefore don't use it as much as I would like. I feel like its a very capable synth but maybe not for the type of sounds im looking for? Maybe I just dont know how to program it but im beginning to think id rath...

Re: Micromoog: bypass problem

Ive got a service manual here in front of me and it looks like your problem would lay in the bypass switch itself or the contour generator. Id probably test the switch first, you should have continuity between pins 1/4 and 2/5 when in the off position, or pins 2/5 and 3/6 in the on position. From th...

Re: Roland Juno 6/60 assistance.

Yea I start bolts by hand daily being a lexus tech, but for some reason these are especially hard to line up. I guess because of the play in the top hinges and there is a slight gap between the keybed and top panel that you have to get right, in order to find the hole..

Re: Roland Juno 6/60 assistance.

Wow thanks for the quick reply, ill probably open it up Friday and see what I find. Do you have any tips for aligning the side screws that go into the top panel when going back together? Thats the only thing I don't like about flipping the top on this thing, I don't want to cross thread those holes....

Roland Juno 6/60 assistance.

Hello all, Ive got a Juno 6 that I just recently realized is acting up. The PWM slider has no effect on the pulse width, nor does the LFO switch. So im stuck with whatever pulse width it got stuck at, now because both the slider and lfo have no effect im assuming that its not just a problem with the...
