Re: Winter NAMM 2012

$700? Look at what that would buy on ebay - workstations vastly superior to those Casio instruments. You could buy a high-end groovebox (RM1x, MC-909, Command Station), vastly superior to the simple one on offer by Casio, for a fraction of the price. 19 seconds of sampling time at 10 bit resolution...

Re: Winter NAMM 2012

Specs on the new Casio keyboards: http://www.synthtopia.com/content/2012/01/19/casio-introducing-2-new-s ynths/#more-37781 Not impressive at all, imo. The specs/features on these instruments read like something introduced 10 years ago. It is Casio though and only $700, so I wasn't expecting any spe...

Re: New MPC flagship.

Dont really think its a "real" MPC or flagship, if you NEED to hook it up to computer to use. I guess we'll see. Looks like no fully more blown out MPC hardware will come now. May be end of a long era.

Boston area Repair Needed - AX80

Re: Micro Q vs Blofeld for trance?

Weird, I may be the only one but I really dislike the tone of the blofield. No matter how you program it, it sounds very flat and lifeless to me. Even the Jexus videos I hear the same thing, sad cause I really like waldorf synths and I have bought two blofs at different times to try and prove myself...

Re: Yamaha SY-35 vs Kawai K4

Ive owned both, still have my SY35, but not the K4. The SY35 has a nice grainy gritty sharp lo-fi sound about it, that I love. The vector synth makes it real fun, and you can get some nice pads/strings/and even some decent quality classic yamaha FM sounds out of it. You can also record yoursefl movi...

Re: for the love of MPCs ....

I dont mind the sound of the newest MPCs, they are transparent but the sound is a bit compressed and outputs kinda cheap. You are right thou they do still sound better then 2000 series, they have more punch. I hate how so many people think the 2000 series has that special old school sound. It really...
