Re: Oberheim OB12 vs Studiologic Sledge

I'm also seeking someone to help customize a new body for it. I hate that cheap plastic yellow casing! I'd like to build a new wooden casing for it, and maybe change the knobs out for something less chunky. Might also redo the silk screening to lettering that isn't so "Space Robots 2029". Go with A...

Re: Any synth with a multitimbral ARP section?

Anything from E-mu's p2K range will do. http://www.vintagesynth.com/emu/xl7.php for instance. Thanx, can I use different patterns simultaneously?And can they be transmitted via the midi to some external devices? Yes and yes. See e.g. p.28 of the MP7 manual for an example of a multichannel arp. Arp/...

You could try VirSyn's Addictive Synth (yes, that means an iPad) - it's pretty much that (and yet more), including hand-drawn filter curves.

Re: Reissues you'd like to see...

I'd love seeing a boutique/reface incarnation of the Polivoks - with minikeys, midi and maybe even patch storage. Probably Korg could handle that (oh no, they already got the minilogue).

Synthmania's Famous Sounds used to be a fair starting point to answer such questions.
For now the page looks, well, a bit unattended, but still useful.

Re: Yamaha Montage synthesizer --- with FM engine!

rattling my brain to remember - what else besides oasys and the dx programmer has offered a fully exploitable FM interface? EX5 or SY77/99? Alesis' Fusion has 6op FM, but severely lacks in the knobs department. Nonetheless, parameters are realtime-editable and mappable. Kurzweil's VAST (running on ...
