Re: HUGE MOOG MUSIC NEWS COMING MONDAY

One does have to wonder why moog would reissue their massive modular rigs that few will ever buy while not reissuing the minimoog, the most iconic vintage synth ever made. Or do they think the voyager is "close enough"?

Re: How do you have your gear hooked up?

I use a motu 2408 mk3. It has 8 inputs and outputs and you can buy additional racks to expand it to 24 ins/outs. You can get them used for about 600 usd. Very convinient, clean, and streamlined.

Re: SixTrak

I miss my six trak. It can make some really interesting and colorful sounds, but as it has already been said, sounds nothing like a juno and the envelopes are rather sluggish, definitely not fast and punchy like the juno can get.

Re: When recording synths...

Yeah, it is very easy to over do turning up the highs. I only do it to one or two instruments in a mix usually, but going over board is one of the most common eq mistakes. The two problem areas in frequency buildup is the high mids (1-2 khz) and low mids as was just mentioned, about 200-600 khz, and...

Re: When recording synths...

If it sounds dull, try cutting out frequencies that don't need to be there, turn up the high end a touch, and really play around with stereo placement. One of the easiest ways to create depth and separation of tracks is to pan. Not half a*s panning in the 2 o'clock position, don't be afraid to hard ...

Re: VST Compressors for Vox on a Budget

It also sums to mono which is a bit annoying but still useful for applications such as vocal compression.

Re: When recording synths...

I use camel crusher vst on just about all my synth parts as a sort of tube preamp simulator. It sounds great and it's free. I use it just enough to add a bit of harmonics. Sounds good for overdriving synths as well.

Re: MFB Dominion 1

And here I had my heart set on a sub 37 for my next major purchase but this is giving me second thoughts. About the same price, this seems a lot more flexible and unique though. 2 things that may stop me however is that I kinda want the moog sound and the build quality is bound to be a bit better on...

Re: VST Compressors for Vox on a Budget

I'm also a reaper user. The stock compressor is quite nice. I use it quite a bit. And also ct 5 if you've got the money for it. It sounds good on about everything.

Re: Microbrute LFO sync doesn't go slow

Did you have any luck figuring this out? I recently bought a microbrute myself and did a search for this very issue and found this. I'm also trying to figure out why the lfo will only cycle as slow as 1 measure when the manual clearly says it can sync to a 4measure cycle. I really wanted a synth tha...

Re: VST Compressors for Vox on a Budget

There are lots of free plugins out there. The blockfish one is pretty good for vocals.However, if you want to buy a plugin, I would recommend the CT 5 plugin by Massey.it sounds great and I think it's only $50.it's also very easy to use. *correction, the plugin is about $80 but it's still a pretty g...

Re: Waldorf Pulse 2 vs. Doepfer Dark Energy II

Out of curiosity, why are you eager to sell the pulse 2? Don't like the sound or is it the interface?

Re: Minimoog Model D multitrack !

Yeah, super good and the most modern sounding thing I've ever heard from a moog. Not only the kick, but the snare sounded big too. Probably some heavy compression to get that. The synth parts sounded huge too.
