Re: DSI Poly Evolver: to buy or not to buy?

If you're digging the Evolver sound, don't switch it up for a Prophet 08. Totally different synth. I'd get that PER and then start saving for a second PER! Just be aware that every time you add something to the poly chain, you're adding two more audio lines. I'd probably get a little hardware mixer ...

Re: Questions about the modular fascination

I feel the same thing a lot of other people feel- it's almost indescribable- a primitive back to the basics - almost purity in the connection to the process. Heavy attraction from my sci-fi bend and all the blinking lights and science- it's just something else. It's definitely in the journey. I fee...

Re: Going Modular: Saving money/buying built rig.

And no, theres no way to avoid spending money experimenting. You need to experience what you don't like as much as what you do like.

Re: Going Modular: Saving money/buying built rig.

Quality is way more subjective in the synth world than the guitar world. They say building a modular is half the fun, so buying somebody else's creation would take away from the experience. With modular its generally better to start small and fully understand each module, figuring out what you want ...

Re: Arp Odyssey

Alright, so its been an interesting few days. I received the Oddy on Tuesday. Played with it a bunch. Keyboard scaling of pitch left a lot to be desired, and anything related to tuning was a pain in the a*s. Just touching (not moving) the coarse sliders and transpose switch resulted in warbling and ...

Re: Questions about the modular fascination

Shoot, pflosi, you got me! But your stuff is so interesting that I'm not even paying attention to what you're using! You usually speak more in terms of synthesis, which is why I get hooked. But I'm (ahem..WE are) definitely guilty of over generalizing things anyways. Of course theres interesting stu...

Re: Dear Synth Manufacturers

Semantics aside, boys, it is kind of a bummer there are not modules with wheels. Really though, its more of a bummer that the Electro Series doesn't have wheels. And a basic ADSR for the sample library sounds.

Re: Questions about the modular fascination

I built a dotcom system last year and as incredible as it sounded, there really wasn't that more functional about it than Minimoog. I spent most of my time sketching plans for more modules though. The 'unfinished' feeling is a little overpowering, not to mention the $$ grab in an attempt to reconcil...

Re: beginner modular synth buying question

I personally found the whole concept a little overwhelming and mostly unproductive. I spent a few months last year building and using a 22 space Dotcom system. It sounded great. However, it was expensive and left me wanting even more, which of course meant more $$. The functionality-value ratio is a...
