Re: Best synth under £100

Hope I'm not too late Kawai K1 (there are a few versions: k1 - keys version, k1m - desktop module version, k1r - rack version; there is also the "K1 II" that comes in keyboard and rack versions) A simple, but kinda neat little guy. I believe its waveforms are made up of PCM sounds and that you can ...

Re: which hardware MIDI sequencers have the best interface?

vote for the rmx1, the rs7000, the MVs and the mc909...the last 2s got interesting big screen as a plus...but if the space is a problem, then the rmx1 is a solution...

Re: Best synth under £100

There's a lot of good Ensoniq machines that go for cheap these days. +1 on that. I nabbed one for $100 that had two very valuable carts with it, and one for $20 that had european voltage and included 6 carts. I consider myself lucky. I sold both of them later, but I regret it. please name some mode...

i don't know well the MCF42, but the 760 filters are very well for the french touch (plus a cheap alesis 3630 ehehe)...

Re: Good crunchy, dirty, lofi samplers

two suggestions of two underrated samplers: zoom st224 and boss sp303; nice crunchy sound, poor sequencer, cool fx, it's all about resampling with those machines; a nice step forward from the 303 is the sp505: more well developed 4 track sequencer, but almost nearly the 303 dirty sound. i cannot do ...

Re: About buying Roland MC909

Cool. But first of all I'll spend my time learning how to make everything on the MC909 (i'll have it before the month ends :yahoo: really exited about it). If I find I need more sounds then I'll think about buying one. I think there are different types, right? Btw, what kind of music do you make wi...

Re: About buying Roland MC909

Great! Deal! :lol: :lol: Just another thing, Do SRX expansion worth it? Because i find them really expensive: about $130... Remember I want the MC-909 to make hiphop beats, maybe it's a better solution (to me) to just sample my drums as i've been doing all my live. Here in Spain we have a proverb (...

Re: About buying Roland MC909

no. but you have 16 tracks wich play simultaneously. Sometimes i think about songs using the 16 tracks of a single pattern to do progression/melody/breaks etc but this is depending on the workflow of each one... by the way copy/paste patterns or copy/paste parts in the same or other patterns, is ve...

Re: About buying Roland MC909

Imagine I have a regular 8 bar break looped. But in some moment i just want to cut a kick or a snare, what i should do? Copy the pattern and erase the kick/snare? Maybe record some "fade out" volume, with the mixer fader maybe? -there is the RPS function that let you do that in the middle of a patt...

Re: About buying Roland MC909

By the way, did you record any voice with your Roland MC909? I mean a whole song, not just few seconds. I'm thinking right now that maybe there's some kind of problem with storage stuff. I just have to really thank you ellaguru. You've been really usefull and you cleared all my doubts! I think i'll...

Re: About buying Roland MC909

I got a MPD24 that maybe I could connect to my (future) Roland MC909. Would they work fine together? About the time, I got a Smart Media card with 128MB of storage. Would It work fine? Otherwise, I found on ebay a 256MB extra RAM memory for Roland MC909, really cheap, but i don't know if it's hard ...

Re: About buying Roland MC909

hi i have a 909 i use it also to make beats, in fact you can trasform it in a mpc pad style (there is a part called rythm to do that) -pro- mixer section: useful 16 tracks: enough 2fx simultaneusly edit: good chop section, combine section and amp mastering: cool and useful sequencer: good (you have ...
