Re: Yamaha AN1x in 2013

I think I've got it now, basically i wanted to keep the modwheel free for assignment, but it seems as though it'll stay available for that as long as only 1 of the 2 buttons is lit. Thanks for the pointer, that might be all I needed. Still keeping an AN1x despite having several VAs and a JX-8P, main...

Re: Yamaha AN1x in 2013

I suppose this is as good a place as any to ask for some AN1x help specific to the morphing feature... I'm always getting confused when it comes to the right-hand matrix and assigning the morph feature, which likely stems from the way it handles global/local VS. patch VS. transmitted settings, which...

Re: What will Korg release next?

Don't be butthurt just because Korg is kicking everyone else's a*s apart...or because giant ugly modulars can't leave the house...or your dusty overpriced vintage stuff is losing relevance with the onslaught of cheap analog...or... Okay, yeah, I can see why vintage gearheads have reason to be butthu...

Re: Alesis Micron arpeggiator vs Korg R3 arp

Never used a Micron, but R3's Arp is 8 steps, switchable between 6 modes, and lets you control gate time, swing, resolution, and which notes are on or off.

Re: Roland TR-707 vs. Korg DDD-1

I've only used/own the DDD-1, and what makes it really cool is the way you can glitch card-based samples by jiggling the cards around so it's not sitting clean on its contacts. Makes some really cool ring-mod/bitcrushed sounds when you do this, so it's not necessarily something you can emulate easil...

I challenge you to defend your Hipster-cred and....explain the system for me. :oops: What's the story on its general platform? Is it open-source?

Re: microkorg help with

The simplest program you can get for free is Audacity for no-frills stereo recording. An interface would be a good thing to get as well. If you want to trigger stuff on your computer or backup your patches you'll need to have one that does MIDI as well, or just get a separate MIDI USB interface.

Re: What are your favorite type of synth sounds?

Check the soundtracks for The Warriors and Fantastic Planet for some great synthscapes! Currently, my favorite synth sounds are hard crossmod (saw as master) leads+bass, spacey pads that seem to introduce endless variations, and mellow square/pulse-based e-pianos with the cutoff +res turned up about...

Re: VSEĀ“s Electribe ESX-1 project...

I like your name, Static. Did you get a chance to read my keyboard part suggestion before electribe-forum.com went tits-up? Basically, you can get things going with tons of motion sequencing. If you don't have luck with that, you can stack FX and resample...I know you mentioned that this would cause...
