Re: Creating these synth sounds

otherwise practise up on some hanon and improve your dexterity until you can play those arpeggios to your drummer.

Re: Synth to buy as an incentive to not buy synths

Kronos looks quite promising. Also the Radias looks awesome too; I've got a decent edirol keyboard i'm not doing much with (seeing as the D110 is easily one of the least inspiring purchases i've ever made). Would you say I should drop the extra for the M3 control box or just run with the midi bits? ...

Re: Should I use Bass or Guitar pedals with my synth?

I only run into impedance issues when I try to use dirt pedals on synths, and when I do, I want them to sound like garbage anyways.

Re: Boss SD-1 overdrive with Minimoog?

I've had really good results with both my Colorsound overdrive and Biyang FZ7. That's not with a mini moog, but just with synth leads in general. The SD1 might end up a bit reedy.

Re: Synth to buy as an incentive to not buy synths

I think its time to consider a modular since its going to be half off... :D Ha I suppose I should throw in a qualifier that I need to gig with it too. Although perhaps just building a modular into the back of a go-kart would be neat. nice & portable. Roland V-synth? kind of what I was leaning towar...

Synth to buy as an incentive to not buy synths

So my girlfriend is challenging me to not buy music equipment for a full year. Says, if we're still together at the end of said year, she'll throw in half of the price of a really nice gear purchase. So it's been six days and no gear purchased (honestly pretty good so far) and I'm debating what to g...

Re: Gear Envy.

Sorry this is a bit of a necrobump, but does anyone else program away their GAS for gigantic setups? I mean, people have such and such for leads, pads, etc.- Anyone else make new patches on their synth to prove to themselves they don't need more? Also, me personally, while I like the idea of a massi...

Re: Should I use Bass or Guitar pedals with my synth?

oh also, envelope filters track really well on synths (go figure) and for the price, you might just want to go with the Alesis ModFX (phlngr, faze, ampliton, philtre, etc) units. They're basically just made to be synth effects.

Re: Should I use Bass or Guitar pedals with my synth?

For delays and modulation it's generally not going to matter.
The "bass chorus" or "bass flanger" type stuff generally just has a blend knob that blends the lows back in.

Re: Korg Electribe EM-1 Audio outputs not working?

the volume on each patch is up, yeah? (not just the master volume?)
There are things programmed?
Do the jacks wiggle at all? if you press down gently on the audio cables (like, towards the table), does sound come out?

Re: Beggining into synths

I'm pro-guitar amp if it has spring verb on it; Honestly a PA is your best bet though. Also, I'd get a Roland Juno D or Di instead of a microkorg if you're just starting out. They're flexible, not limited to four notes, light weight, etc. They are a little more expensive than the microkorgs but they...

Contact Microphones, or How much gain will destroy them?

So I discovered yesterday that the pair of korg contact mics I have can be speakers as well as receivers (I plugged one into the wrong jack) and I'm curious about using these in a similar fashion to spring reverb. (for those not familiar, spring verb is when you've got some big ol' springs like for ...
