Re: Synth Defects - Ticking Time Bombs

I didn't see this posted earlier, but I do believe the 100uF capacitor on the Virus B/Indigo 1 had a tendency to c**p out and need to be replaced. I know a couple of people who had it replaced by Access twice!

Didn't the Andromeda have problems with voice chips failing and loose ribbon cables?

Re: Why You post music? AND to Youtube mainly? Out of curios

I post on my website, youtube, etc. because it is the easiest way to get my music out to others. Now I haven't posted any new songs in years, but that is because I just haven't felt like it. I almost always only post things that will be on an album (once properly mixed and masted). It has helped me ...

Re: What should I buy?? (Synth players/Industrial Music)

Although I think the Access Virus is played out (or rinsed, if you're in the UK) for industrial/EBM especially, there IS a reason why it's so heavily used. In my opinion, it is one of the best synths ever (it's personally my favorite) and it's really hard to go wrong with it. It will almost definit...

Re: Wavestation Hardware vs. Wavestation Software Synths

Great responses, thanks! I suppose at the price (~$50US), it is not a difficult decision. Has anyone got it within the bundle? At ~$200US, do the other synths in the package make it worth the purchase? http://www.korg.com/us/products/software/korg_legacy_collection/ Speck I bought the collection ab...

Re: Keyboard Sequencers to Use as main sequencer

The good news is that workstation sequencers became sophistciated very quickly. While the ESQ-1 sequencer (1986) is limited in editing features it's still quite usable today and pretty much any workstation made in the last 20 years will do the job. You should research them carefully to get an idea ...

Re: What should I buy?? (Synth players/Industrial Music)

I make the same kind of music you are talking about, and either of your choices would be fine for what you want. I have used just about tons and tons of synths over the years and was able to achieve what you are looking for from just about anything. I was actually looking at those and possibly a Rol...

Re: First Synth: Korg MS-20 Mini vs Roland Boutique Synth

I know that it isn't on your list, but I always thought a Novation K-Station was a nice smaller synth to learn on. It has a very simple layout and tons of knobs and sliders in a small package. Many functions are also just a simple menu away. They are a steal at under $300 as well. It is put together...

Re: Back at it,need help with a digital keyboard synth

It may just be almost impossible to find at you price point, but I love my Microwave XT. I was able to get the rack module last year for $600, but it took me over a year of looking. People tend to list them close to $1,000......so you may never find one in your price point. You definitely will NOT f...

Re: Yamaha Motif 8 - Piano Quality

I just sold my M08 about 6 months ago. I had it for about 8 years, and I really enjoyed the piano patches. I think the grand piano on it sounds pretty good. The person I sold it to was looking to use the board mostly for piano sounds and said they were very happy with purchase. Also, they have the h...

Re: Chaining mixers?

Believe me, you never have enough input on mixers! ;-) Truer words have never been said. I started with 16 and never thought I would have an issue. Well it took over 12 years, but I eventually need a second mixer. I now use the secon one to chain my tetra and Moho together and still have a few more...

Re: Apps for synth build-it-yourself.. what do you think?

Definitely let me know how Reaktor works for you. I find it really fun to make the strange sounds on myself. It can obvious do the "classic" sounds if you want it to. I tend to use it more for strange and crazy things I can't quite get out of my other gear. Tested it out, but for some reason it tel...

Yeah, that was a long time ago. I still have my track from back then, I just checked - it was in early 2009...

Re: Grrr... MIDI interface driver follies

I've had a similar problem on multiple occasions with Logic Pro not being able to find my old Emagic MT4 MIDI interface. I've just done what was mentioned earlier and poured everything off and did a reboot. It fixed the problem. I would assume this is something you already tried. I've contacted Appl...
