Re: Most Unreliable, Finicky Digital Synth?

...While it's not "digital" See also THIS. For this argument, I don't care how it "makes it sound" it's just pieces you expect to work well because they're digital (or digitally controlled). The reason why I asked about andromeda is because even though it's analog oscillators - some have complained...

Re: Most Unreliable, Finicky Digital Synth?

Ok.. Plywood or Chipboard.. :-) But still.. But if the synths sounds good, then (I think) it's worth to look aside from the building quality. Just put some money aside for service once and awhile. I had a Polysix back in the 90's... I should never had sold it. Not when I look at the prices they are ...

New software sequencer , advice.

Hi! I think this is the right place to ask, before buying a new sequencer program. I have been using Ableton live 8 for some time now, but I just can't seems to come together with it. It misses some elementary sysex issues/MIDI that I need. I do not use all the plug-inn's that ableton have, it's onl...

Re: Roland Alpha Juno 1 - Midi issues (stuck notes)

Hi there. I guess my question is: is this just too much midi information for the Juno to handle at once? or is something wrong with mine? Any help would be awesome, thanks. Yes, too much midi information, it's a bit better on the MKS 50. I have had the same problem and came to talk with a expert in ...

Re: Roland JX-8P key issue

Hi.

On the MKS 30 it was pretty easy to get access to the mainboard and fix the problem.
To a notice, I sold my JX-8p 11 years ago, so can't remember in details...
