Re: Filter Boxes

2 MAM Warp 9s if you can find them. They go for less than $200 each, and they have MIDI triggering of env for VCA or VCF, an LFO, lots of weird LFO/ENV routing modes, and sound rad to me. They aren't terribly expensive, but they are fairly rare. I'm bidding on one on ebay right now (I've always want...

Re: What's your "must have" synth?

You should definately look into the SY77/99. These synths gave me an idea that Yamaha should implement the FM engine from FS1r in their next generation Motif, however, not in the form of a plugin card with crippled editing. Instead they should utilise the big touchscreen that will surely be there t...

Re: Suggestions for all-in-one outboard effects unit?

Sorry to highjack, but i too am looking for a multifx unit, but my needs are slighty different. I perform live dance music and i want something i can tweak live over my nl3 as well as use in the studio with a 106 and blofeld. So preferably needs to be compact, not glitch when tweaked and have dedic...

Agree. Definitely put some SR16 samples in your ES-1. :D

Re: First Drum Machine?

If you can handle working with samples, the Korg ES-1 loaded with samples of any drum machine you want (they are all easily findable on the internet) will do you, plus give you a really nice sequencer and lots of manipulation capabilities. It's what I wish I had as my first drum machine.

Re: What's your "must have" synth?

1. What synth/keyboard is your all-time favorite and why? 2. If you could ONLY have ONE synth/keyboard, what would it be? 1. Nord G2 Engine. It does everything/anything. 2. Expanded G2 Engine. It does everything/anything more. I suppose if I'm not allowed to have MIDI controllers, I'd make those ke...

Re: Elektron Octatrack

New vids featuring OT.

Elektron Presents The Trinity, Part I

Elektron Presents The Trinity, Part II

These videos don't really show much. My cautiously optimistic curiousity about the Octatrack remains unchanged.

Re: Sample ID Help

1) I'm beyond impressed at what you've already identified.

2) Please don't take this the wrong way, but why in the world are you doing this?

Re: Your Synth Setup is now Extinct!

Nord G2 Engine--> Blofeld (saying a G2 keyboard would be cheating)
Mini-KP --> Without cheating by listing a different kaoss pad? Uh, DL-4?
Warp 9 and RS-3 --> CS01 Mk II
Pedals --> build more pedals
MIDI controllers --> other MIDI controllers

Re: Nord Modular G2

I used to have a couple of micromodulars (G1) and upgraded to a G2 engine. I expected I could just pick up where I left off, but they are pretty different platforms with appreciably different sound and capabilities. I prefer the G2, though. I've had no regrets about the change. There's a lot more ve...

Re: alpha juno hoover crew

I know this is an ancient thread, sorry, but I have a question and it's probably not worth making a new thread for it. How exactly is the PWM on the sawtooth wave implemented in the alphas? Based on the MKS-50 manual it looks like the saw is multiplied by a sync'd pulse-wave at double the frequency ...

Re: A Sampling Newbie has Some Questions

Don't know anything about Logic or ESX24, so I can't help you there, but the thing I use to sample audio from DVDs or streaming video or whatever is a program called wiretap pro. It records whatever audio is going on on the computer, so you just play your video and hit the record button when the par...

Re: Effect section in Roland SP-606 as stand-alone?

Told you, sonne. #1 Dad.

@Hugo: Sp606 is much bigger than KP-3 and also its really annoying trapezoidesque shape makes it hard to put in a rectangular box with other rectangular objects.
