Re: Prophet-6 Module Announced!

just preordered form sweet water because they have a 36 month financing thing going on if you have the sweetwater card. 60 bucks a month, plus whatever i throw at it to try and pay it off quicker? DEAL 8-) Did you call them, because I don't see the item on their site? Also, what's the street price?

I'm sure teh interwbz will soon be raging over DSI greed/ripoff and why isn't it $1500 like a P08 :banghead:
It will be $1500 someday. That's my point! :)

Re: Prophet-6 Module Announced!

I'm excited too. For one thing, I'm hoping the module will be at least $500 cheaper than the keyboard version, which will bring it more within my price range. And if the prices on these units trend like the P08 modules, these things will be significantly less expensive than the keyboard version in t...

Re: Moog Mother 32 Eurorack synth voice

I'm surprised that there is more activity on the Roland Boutique thread than on the Moog Mother-32 here. To help alleviate that... I've been doing a series of videos of the Mother-32 (still waiting to have that 3-Tier Rack delivered so I can add my third Mother-32 to the setup.) These are just earl...

Re: Akai Analogue Polysynth: Timbre Wolf

I think it's just four of the same voices from the Rhythm Wolf, right? I played with one at GC for a while and I was totally nonplussed. Very limpid synth with tone-canceling resonance. Yes, it's just the Rhythm Wolf x4. Exactly that. And yes, I agree about the resonance. You crank that up, and it ...

Re: Akai Analogue Polysynth: Timbre Wolf

OK, so I decided to buy one of these. I'm returning it. I think it's very difficult to wring any decent sound out of this thing. Adjusting the cutoff and resonance for each voice is a huge PITA. Plus, this thing doesn't have an LFO and has very limited envelope control. To me, it sounds muddy unless...

Re: Roland Boutique

Admit I've not read the whole thread, but these look like they are supposed to be comparable or compete with Yamaha's Reface line, and if that is so then I'd say +20 to Roland. Yeah, not much of a competition. I think the Reface line is almost comical in its price/performance ratio and it seems mos...

+1. And in terms of feature set for the price, the Moog blows the doors off competitors like the Doepfer Dark Energy. :twisted:

I'm in!

Re: Suggestion for first analog synth

OK, so some people are down on the Mininova. Fine. If you want "real analog," get an Arturia Minibrute. Full-size keys, and a knobby interface that will force you to learn synthesis. There are no presets, after all! And prices have really, really fallen on these things, too. High-quality used ones f...

Re: Akai Analogue Polysynth: Timbre Wolf

Swayze, Same idea as the Vermona Perfourmer : use it as 4 independent monosynths, layer 2 or more voices together, use as a 2-4 voice poly, etc. Very flexible even if a given voice is pretty simple. Using as a poly with each voice programmed differently (it's impossible to get them 100% identical a...

Re: Suggestion for first analog synth

+1 for Ultranova, it covers so many bases & is a pad monster to boot. For a budget mono, the Minibrute or Microbrute is also a winner. Has a superbly featured mixable waveshape oscillator & a great filter (not to mention Brute Factor !). The Novation Mininova is even more budget friendly, but uses ...
