Hey, this unit looks and sounds great. Do you bought it?
It´s seems to be more useful for the solina kind of sound, but definitely cool.
If I only could find any shop who has it in stock ...

Re: Pad Sound in Streets of Philadelphia?

Hey, thanks for your replies. Unfortunatley it´s not the answer I liked to hear, because the CS80 is way out of my pricerange, besides it´s so rare I never saw one which I could buy ... Leads me to the next question: what do you think comes close to this sound? My current synths I use for pad sounds...

Re: Most physically attractive synths

For me as mentioned before:
Voyager Old School - perfect ... old school design
the complete virus line since the indigo - great modern design

Pad Sound in Streets of Philadelphia?

Hi, since a long time I am looking for the ultimate string and pad synth. I discussed several keyboards with a friend of mine, and he asked me about the perfect string sound in a song. I know some people will laugh about me, but I think Bruce Springsteens "Streets of Philadelphia" comes pretty close...

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

My Choice is the DSI Polyevolver. Great mixture of analog and oldschool digital synthesis. Nearly unpredictable sound results and that keeps this thing so interesting.

Re: Are you an expert on a specific synthesizer?

15 years ago due to a lack of money I was a master of the Yamaha TX16W Sampler, until I learned one thing:
to master that sampler is to trash it away.

Re: DSI - Poly Evolver PE Conversion

I`m also interested in the Pot replacement. My encoders feel cheasy and start dying away after one year usage. I contacted DSI. Now I have the option for an encoder based board replacement (for free) or the Pot upgrade for 399$.
Does anyone know how good is the build quality of the new pots?

Re: Interesting digital filter sections

Blofeld has nice ones. The Comb Filter is very unique. You can use two Filters at a time in parallel or serial mode, similar to the virus. As said before the monomachine has a strange filter implementation, only two filters but super easy and effective to use. The Highpass on monomachine has resonan...

Wow, and I have the white wash, but always wanted a walnut!
Unfortunately you live a continent to far away... Can you post a photo? I never saw the walnut in "real".

Re: LOOKING FOR ADVICE ON DS EVOLVER

If you like to tweak, consider to buy at least the Mono Evolver Keyboard. The Desktop and Rack Versions have a horrible User Interface and may frustrate you. If you don't have the money for the Mono Evolver Keyboard go for the Blofeld.

Re: Resist buying, save up for the big one

For me it is important that every Synth I own is immediately usable. That means it has to be connected to a mixer or converter, I dont want to patch anything. Good mixer and/or converter are really expensive, many (more than one) of them add unwanted complexity to your setup. I think a good 16 chann...
