Re: VSE - Good trader/seller thread

Bought Phesago's Tempest. Nice fella and the Tempest was perfect. Talk about service, he shipped within about an hour of receiving payment!

Many thanks Doug, I'm absolutely loving it so far. :D

Re: Super Basic Hardware Sample Playback Machine

Roland MS-1 checks all of those boxes and will only cost you around $50-75. Nothing fancy but a nice little sampler.

Re: Why KORG will never release a *real* drum machine

I don't know, if you look at the Kingkorg it's kind of like they said "Ok, here's our biggest, baddest version of a modern v/a." Not exactly a budget synth, I would say. And the Electribe X series was anything but cheaply made. More like "Ok, here's our biggest, baddest version of a groovebox." Real...

Re: Taking a short sample and making it long?

I might be alone in thinking this, but I find the SP-808's timestretching to be a great tool. At extremes, it does some strange things to samples, in what I would consider a good way.

As far as samplers that find zero crossings automatically, the only one I know of for sure is the SU-700.

Re: will the mini brute replace the pro one/sh 101

also the mini brute does not have a sequencer...a lot of (you tube clips) show electribes driving them along. the sh 101 does not do it for me, nor the mc 202....so i was considering the mini/with electribe, just to get the lower end that the juno 60 cant do. Not trying to take the thread too far f...

Re: Minibrute Vs. Microbrute

I have to say, the only thing you'll get from me on the topic is indecision. :lol: I love them both. To be expected I guess, given how similar they are. On the Micro, I really, really like the range of sounds you can get on the sub osc with the new sub-fifth knob. Something about the timbres you get...

Re: Minibrute Vs. Microbrute

I just got my Micro today. I am amazed at the size reduction and how much functionality they were able to retain. But I have to say, the overlap makes it hard to justify keeping both (the price makes it a little easier). I haven't yet started playing around with layering them and throwing the Monotr...

Re: Ensoniq KT-88 equivalent model in synth

The Kt's do have some Transwaves in the waveform list. IIRC it was like either 9 or 13 different ones. The 76 and 88 are identical, except for the number of keys, of course.

Nice sounding rompler, some really nice, shimmering pad sounds.

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

Wow, this is some crazy news. Very cool! Just a few thoughts from the perspective of a hobbyist, industry nobody and a relative newbie compared to most of you guys: 1) I don't know how anybody can be upset about old rare analogs being available once again. Unless you're a collector who owns them alr...

Re: Minibrute Vs. Microbrute

It's weird, I had an issue with aftertouch, where I'd push down and the sound would cut in and out. Notes would play fine, it was when AT was engaged. I had read about people having to go in and hot glue a connection in there so I went in and checked it out. Everything seemed to be solid with the co...

Re: Minibrute Vs. Microbrute

It is always good to have a Synth which you can use downstairs, whilst the good lady is watching something on the television. Exactly! :D I'm thinking a Volca beats might be just the thing to pair it with, the more I consider it. Amazing time we are in right now. For a few hundred bucks, an analog ...
