Re: Talk to me. Trancy synthpop . . .

Enjoying the arrangement at :41.

I would actually enjoy some Depeche like vocals in this song. At 41 and 1:40 ish again, when the song goes into that groovy part, I think vocals would make this a really strong and fun to listen to song.

Thanks.

Re: First song done only with synths/vocals

Thank you for listening and the tips. I cannot seem to get vocals down to my satisfaction. I have been listening to a lot of Beach House lately.

Thank you for the listens.

First song done only with synths/vocals

Hey guys. I'm primarily a guitarist, so I think this is the first time I've only used electronics to record a song. I hope you find something interesting or moving, or fun about it. Any advice, on any aspect of the song is much appreciated. I always want to improve. Have a good one. Thank you. http:...

Alesis ION not powering on?

I had been playing my ion, and left it on while I got up and did something. When I came back I noticed it was off. Not when I switch the power on, nothing happens- their is a tiny little sqeauking, almost mouse like sound when I try to turn it on, like it is trying to do something, but something is ...

Tempo sync Ableton Live with Ion?

Hey all, I've been trying to figure out how to sync the tempo of Ableton Live to my Ion, so that I can use the Ion arrpegiators and they will be in time with my song. I have a MIDI to USB cable, and Ableton is reading the MIDI notes that I play on my ION, but I can't seem to figure out how to sync t...

Re: ION Owners? Help with ADSR display?

Running boot code: ver. 1.00, and OS code ver. 1.06.

Sigh, well at least, as you said, the audio is working fine. It's just one of those weird annoying things that nags at you. Hopefully it'll magically fix itself some time. =)

Re: ION Owners? Help with ADSR display?

The sound is effected normally by all knobs and the number values at the bottom of the screen change accordingly- it's just the graphical line representation that doesn't change. I've owned it for about 2 months now after buying it used- looking at it, it looks in mint condition, and sounds great. I...

ION Owners? Help with ADSR display?

It doesn't seem like the ION is displaying the full graphical ADSR info in the LCD when I adjust the Attack, Decay, Sust, Sus time, and release. The only knobs that seem to change the ADSR display "graph" are sust level, and release, which goes from slanted to a straight line when set to "hold", not...

Weird ION issue?

Hey all. So I just got an ION but I've noticed a weird problem. There is always a sound coming from the right side of my headphones , almost like a delay/reverby sound. It is there even if I reset the program to just play one OSC sine wave. The sound is there even if I turn down the volume on all OS...

Re: La Roux's "Bulletproof" (What synths?)

I think its La Roux's best song by far, much better then there other singles which I don't like much. One thing that I dont like about it thou, is in her last chorus the vocals are messed up. Either mistake or really bad try at harmonizing. Not the same as La Roux, but Chromeo & Bat For Lashes come...
