Vintage = vingt ans d'age = 20 years.

Yes all the 90ies gear is vintage already! :mrgreen:

More importantly, what creates that character?
Lack of treble and sub-par components distorting mostly.

And the way oscillators react to control voltage as opposed to quantized MIDI.

Re: What's my ideal machine?

The big buzzy Stereolab chords are from a Farfisa organ. You can get that from an EMU Vintage Keys on the cheap. Their synth stuff was mono synths.

Re: Behringer discussing making ARP Odyssey now

But it seems there is some obscure legal sleight of hand going on. Brands that may have been left derelict after bankruptcy are now showing up again. Often with products that bear no resemblance to the original product line. I agree with most of your points but there's not much in the way of "obscu...

Re: MFB Dominion 1

I don't see a way of doing that. Seems like the keys are off in seq mode except for transposing. You can however program the sequencer to play up to 3 notes at once.

Re: MFB Dominion 1

The MFB is definitely the way to go if you are a Eurorack guy. In fact add a Moogy filter and VCA to your rack, feed the MFB VCOs into them and there's your Moog. But if you're after a Moog sound, the MFB is not going to do it. It will do 70s crusty sounds all you want but not that wet woody Moog so...

Re: Behringer to make analog polysynths !

I guess there are two different possibilities here. Either Behringer will be making a synth for synth heads, because the founder once was one himself, and presumably still is. Or they will be making a synth for the people who keep Guitar Center in business buying the cheapest thing possible that wi...

Re: Behringer to make analog polysynths !

Circuits are not protected under US copyright and trademark law, which is why Mackie's case was dismissed. Aphex's case is the only one that I'm aware of where Behringer lost a case. I'm not sure if that was won on the basis of copyright (design rip off) or trademark (logo similarity)--or if German ...

Re: Tempest VS Analog Rytm

Swisserland aside...

Both are top notch. Rytm is more of a drum machine with lots of control over each voice while the Tempest is more of a drum synth where each voice is a blank slate. I ended up preferring the straightforwardness of the Rytm.
