Re: Synthesizers.com system

Yeah it's all cool, go for it. Make sure that you do a lot of research before to make sure you have the right format and manufacturers. And furthermore, start slow. I'd definitely not buy a whole Studio 44 at once. Go slow and buy a few modules that you want most at first, then learn those in and o...

Re: Synthesizers.com system

People are misinterpreting my post, I was using old poly synths as a reference purely from a price perspective. In no way, shape or form do I expect a modular to act, sound like or perform like a P5. I know the differences between the two formats and am not going into this blind. As I have already e...

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

As a regular gigging musician, taking a separate keyboard out is completely unrealistic. As a regular gigging musician, no it isn't you knucklehead. Hey, forums are places for opinions to be voiced.

As a regular gigging musician, taking a separate keyboard out is completely unrealistic. yeah. all those guys in the 70s and 80s with their multiple keyboards onstage were being completely unrealistic. i see your point totally :| Yeah, who would want to take multiple keyboards on stage unnecessaril...

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

this is great news, by any measure just use another Cv keyboard if the one it comes with is too small. As a regular gigging musician, taking a separate keyboard out is completely unrealistic. I understand how some people can just see past the mini keys but I simply can not tolerate them. Full size ...

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

If it is full size, I will buy it! Another mini cop out, I will not. Either way, they are going to sell many so long as the price isn't too extortionate. I am really happy that there is a company doing this sort of thing and making these machines but am I the only one that thinks re releasing loads ...

Re: Synthesizers.com system

There is a big difference between a poly synth à la Prophet 5 and a monophonic modular: the same amount of money will not bring you the same thing. You should consider what you are really looking for in the first place... I know the difference between these machines as would anyone with 1/100th of ...

Synthesizers.com system

Ok, I have been thinking about this long and hard. The prices of vintage synths, keyboards and analogue effects have gone absolutely insane to the point where I can not see myself ever finding any of the synths I desire at a bargain price again. I have always been looking for a prophet 5 or a memory...

Re: buying my first set of monitors

The new Adam "something" are quite nice. They are basically the cheaper versions of the "A" range and feature all of the great Adam engineering pedigree. The Yamaha HS series are also quite decant for relatively flat frequency responses. In my personal opinion, I would stay away from KRK monitors. I...

Re: OB-8 Portamento

Well this is a polysynth; each voice will indeed glide to the new value from the note you played before - on that voice . I.e. it's not the note you played before on another (random) voice... Usually it works like that on polys, I have to admit that I don't know whether there are other modes in the...

OB-8 Portamento

I know,,, RTFM etc. I just wanted to know how to change the portamento settings on my OB-8 from the standard method of auto gliding from a set not to the one played to the usual portamento mode on many other synths e.g. gliding from the last note played to the next. I have glanced at the manual but ...

Re: Moog Delay inputs

I can't say I have ever noticed or experienced this problem. I have the four original big briar pedals and they all seem to have the same relative behaviours when using the drive and input gains. I wouldn't say my delay has decreased dynamic range or anything of that nature. I am not sure if the uni...

Re: Moog Opus 3 Cleaning

So yeah, got an Opus 3 that definitely needs some love. Congratulations, I love my opus 3 to bits! It is such a joy to play. I find it really easy to integrate into a live band sett up. Hopefully the foam isn't too hard for you to get off. No matter how spotless I seem to get mine, there is always ...

To Re-Tolex, good idea or not?

I am not sure of this is in the right forum so apologies if not :/ I have wanted to redo the Tolex cover on my RE-501 for some time however have never plucked up the courage. The Tolex is in tact but is riddled with holes and scuffs. Does anyone have any experience with this, any tips or suggestions...
