Re: What's your favorite synthesis method--

Subtractive...although I find the term misleading. 2 sines into a ring mod is a fairly basic component of "subtractive synthesis" but it's not subtractive. Neither is analog FM. In fact, a saw into a resonant filter isn't necessarily entirely subtractive either as the resonance adds harmonics. Why? ...

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

Played the Korg Odyssey this week. Sounds pretty good, feels pretty crappy. Cheap plastic-y bits, dumb mini keys, and expression buttons that aren't very expressive because they're really hard to press down. Try before you buy if you can because I'd be disappointed getting this in the mail after sp...

I can imagine. I've only played with the knobbed version.
But it seems like something where Korg could have made an improvement.

Re: Zoom MS-70CDR?

I have the MS-100BT--basically the same with with more modules. Awesome little unit. I use it for every practice and gig on guitar for tuner and fx I might want occasionally--chorus, trem, and delay. Good for all of them but I haven't found an analog modeling delay that does a really good analog del...

Re: Choosing TR8 and TB3 over TR808/909 and TB303

That was exactly my point. When they made the albums back in the 80s and 90s, the gear was the latest and the greatest. It wasn't some cool hip vintage gear from 1965 that cost $40000. So naturally, modern producers and musicians use the latest gear that is available to us now. That wasn't my point...

Re: Choosing TR8 and TB3 over TR808/909 and TB303

Maybe this is just an isolated case, but I thought about whether "old timers" musicians would stick to the vintage stuff or newer gear, by looking at a picture of DJ Pierre studio in 2015. BTW, DJ Pierre is considered one of the "originators" of acid house and "wild pitch" dancing tracks. A career ...

Re: EMS Synthi 100 restored!

Hi Guys, Thanks for all the comment, my first post was to: 1) Staab, "The renewed interest came from Interactive Composition Students at the VCA" 2) ranzee, True polyphonic? The answer was informative but probably not what you expected! (keyboard polyphonic, No! - Synthi 100 polyphonic, yes! ) (The...

Re: Delay to go with my moog slim phatty....

It just doesn't have reverse, so I'm kinda bummed about that.... Well... Sounds like a digital delay is what you're after, if you don't want something dark and you want the option of reverse. For your budget I'd go with the Line 6 M5. Lots of delay options and lots of other effects from their 4 ser...

Re: Prophet 600 vs Prophet '08

The P600 is brassy but dark so it has almost always has a lovely ominous vibe. The P08 tends to be bright and brassy which appeals less to me.

Re: 3-Oscillator Per Voice Polysynths??

What good are free-running DCOs if they're all perfectly in tune? Being digitally out of phase isn't as good as being slightly out of tune! Frequency knob? Why does it have to be a poly-synth? Buildt a modular synth and you can have all the VCO's you want. Yeah but why does it have to be a synth? B...
