Re: Would you make this trade?

IDK If you are busy and haven't had much time to dig in yet, I would see if you can sell that guy the EPS and spend your time enjoying the SQ-80 before getting something else. Do you have any effect pedals or anything or are you running it into a DAW?

Re: Cables...

The Mackie manuals generally seem good, it's worth reading through if you haven't.

Re: Last remaining good value analogue poly synths?

I agree with jabberwalky, for it’s feature set, I think the interface on the ESQ-1 is very thoughtfully designed and super easy to use.

Re: TR-8 sequencer synced with Arturia Microbrute sequencer

@habibardi, did you make any headway with this? I wonder if the firmware has anything to do with it.

Are you in the US? I see them come up on craigslist alongside esq-1s for sale from time to time.

Z, can I ask what firmware you are running on your microbrute?

Re: TR-8 sequencer synced with Arturia Microbrute sequencer

You might well be doing everything correctly: the micro brute sequencer has crazy issues synching to external midi clock. Check the arturia microbrute forums. Someone actually started a change.org petition to get them to fix it!

Re: korg es-1 won't boot

Yeah I did. It's possible this was the source of the issue as i'm using an adjustable adaptor. I don't remember if it got toggled at some point and then I ran the es-1 on the wrong voltage: I moved apartments around the time this happened so have no way of knowing if the voltage got toggled during t...

Re: korg es-1 won't boot

It crapped out before I tried to run the update. I agree, it is possible the card got corrupted, but it should work without a card in it right? That’s why I was thinking when I got a replacement es-1 I might have a better chance of fixing this one by confirming whether the card and software file is ...

Re: korg es-1 won't boot

I assume you've seen/read this http://madeformono.blogspot.com/2009/01 ... -es-1.html Yes, I saw that. Good to hear you had success with it. I'll try it if I end up with the MK1 (when I get the money spare to buy a new one). If it's the same mod delay that's on the emx-1 it's worth a little effort.

Re: korg es-1 won't boot

Just to follow up on this: A few months back I bought a card reader / writer, then a few weeks back I got it together to sit down and get the OS from the yahoo forums (I think), got it on the card, and then as planned ran the key commands I read online to update the OS (actually tried a few because ...

Re: Desktop vs full keyboard synths

Like moodorf said, your MIDI situation is important. If you have one master keyboard, just make sure you can switch between gear easily without unplugging MIDI cables, otherwise a desktop/rack synth does become a bit more of a chore to program and integrate into a set up than one with keys. For this...

Re: Looking for the right Synth (LoFi /Experimental) // 500-

IDK looks like the original poster jumped ship. I'd also consider an ESQ-1 or 80.
