Re: Can anyone recommend me some free VSTs?

VST4FREE.com, VSTPlanet.com, and KVRAudio.com have the biggest listings. KBrown has a new and very extensive collection of free VSTs. There is the ElektroStudio collection of classics no one else has. Sonic Projects has a small free version of their OP-X. Tubeohm has four free versions that are amaz...

Re: Casio FZ-1 Crackly Sound

It could be the D/A converter. This problem is known to occur in Supernovas. I think the Service Manual is available on ManualsLib.com or possible deepSonic.ch. You would need to check the circuit from the output back with a multimeter first, and then with an oscilloscope to see where the spikes are...

Every H G Fortune

Here is every H. G. Fortune [the late great Gunter Hagen] creation I could find scouring the web. If there is a problem with me posting it all, just give me a nod and a wink and I will ignore you with the best Anarchistic disdain I can muster. Be forwarned: 3 Gigabytes. I left out the samples, demos...

Re: Ensoniq Transwaves - complete wave lists

Ensoniq EXP-3 "The Urban Dance Project" what I believe to be the Transwaves in it: The lists of voices in EXP cards 1, 3, and 4 are available at http://www.geocities.ws/asrxcite/ aka ASRXCITE. I will attach (NOT; see below) a PDF (which I got from somewhere I can't remember) of the full list of voic...

Re: Ensoniq Transwaves - complete wave lists

Does anyone know of a list or lists of the Transwaves in the Ensoniq EXP cards? Tom Ellard in his web site says the MR Rack + EXP 3 = Fizmo (all the Transwaves) but does not provide a list of the additions.

There is a custom black Alesis A6 Andromeda on eBay at the moment. I captured the page and pictures for posterity which is the only bit of this machine I will ever own.

And the original tactile switches in the 303/606 and V-Synth don't last very long.
You can say "c**p" in public. It's from someone's name. Thomas Crapper, who invented the modern ballcock flush toilet. No, I'm not making it up.

E-Mu Excelsior ROM, what is it?

I have seen two E-Mu Excelsior ROMs for sale recently. One is at Perfect Circuit Audio, an AP530-00. The other is an AP534-02 installed in an E-Mu Emulator 6400 that was sold in an eBay auction. I cannot find any documentation on Excelsior ROMs anywhere. Creative have shut down their E-Mu and Ensoni...

Re: Ridiculous eBay 'Buy-it-now' and starting bids.

Re: ENSONIQ EPS OEX-8 Output Expander Wanted

There is an OEX-8 on eBay right now. Looks to be without cable. Syntaur has the cable for this and the OEX-6 in stock. They also sell original OEX boxes with the cable, but not as cheaply.

Re: arturia v collection 2, upgrade to v collection 3???

As mentioned, and I confirm, all the older instruments in the V3 are the same exactly as in V2. If you have all the V2 instruments, upgrading to V3 will only give you three new things, the Wurlitzer V, the Spark Vintage Drum Machines, and the new Analog Lab which is not to be confused with the Analo...
