Re: Moog Sub 37

I get the impression there's a couple of things going on. Someone, somewhere has mentioned a unit limit of 1000 units -- I saw today on the Moog forum somebody saying (a while ago) that the German Moog distributor had had that figure on their site, but that seems to have long since vanished. But I t...

Re: Moog Sub 37

There was someone on some forum somewhere (might've been GS), who reckoned he'd phoned Moog and someone there had told him it was limited to 1000 and had also spoken to someone at Guitar Center who'd told him they'd been allocated a paltry amount (30 or 60 or something ridiculous like that) for the ...

Re: Moog Sub 37

On one of the NAMM videos, didn't someone from Moog (not Amos) say that the TE was going to be produced for about a year? Which would suggest a time-limited run rather than limited numbers. Usually when things are strictly limited by number the manufacturer makes a big point about that number, using...

Re: GAME-CHANGING NEW SYNTHESIZER

:idea: There must be a Limited Edition which would only do certain styles/bands at half of the price. Can anybody coin a cool name for the one playing only C+C Music Factory plus Italo ? The Limited Edition should be hewn from a single ingot of aluminium and should have wooden end cheeks to further...

Re: Minibrute external in LFO question

Totally off-topic, but affect can be a noun (although it is specific, psychological terminology) and effect can be a verb. For example, to effect a change in the patient's affect, the physican prescribed antidepressants. What's saddens me is that non-native speakers of English generally speak/write ...

Re: Waldorf Streichfett

A chap on KVR was at the Messe and played it and gave a bit of a report. The sound engine is DSP and there's no mention of anything analogue, which fits with the SonicState vid, if I remember correctly, where they talked about tweaking the EQ and filtering in firmware.

Re: What synths were used for original theme for Casualty (1

Sorry, can't add anything regarding your actual question, but it's the perfect opportunity to point out that it was written by father of the string synth , Ken Freeman, of Freeman String Symphonizer fame. I haven't seen Causality (see someone in the opening minutes and know they will have a horrible...

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

I realise this is all legit and above-board, it's all in the public domain and copyrights and other IP haven't been maintained. However, one wonders what ARP himself will think of all this. I read an interview a while ago -- I think it was brought up when the Two Thousand Six Hundred first came to l...

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

My first thought -- after I'd recoved my senses, which took some time -- was that Korg are going all out to sink Roland. Roland have shown weakness and Korg are going in for the kill and are almost seem to be toying with them. This is mindblowing stuff. It'll be interesting to see how cheap, or not,...

Re: Why do you use the Synthesizer you use most?

For me, it's probably my Solina because it's right next to my desk at sitting height, the power switch is on the front and it's polyphonic – I can turn it on quickly, I don't have to stand up to play it and I can work parts out on it like I would on a piano. I also have a Logan String Melody II on t...

Re: Have I killed my Doepfer Modules?

This is a common problem in Eurorack. When Dieter invented the format, he clearly didn't think about "third party manufacturer support" in the way 3U has developed in the meantime... Well, these were Doepfer modules in a Doepfer case rather than a combination of third party Eurorack items. Another ...

Re: Have I killed my Doepfer Modules?

At least in your case it was merely resting, in mine I'm pretty sure it's terminal :cry: I've put another order in to Thomann whilst they still have the discontinued A106-6 filter in stock (I hope). That reminds me, I need to put a Tipp-ex mark on the power cable and tip to ensure it's re-assembled ...

Re: Have I killed my Doepfer Modules?

I had a nasty feeling that that would be the case. Yeah, I know :oops: It's something I usually do with more complex things, but this was "simply" taking the modules out... but of course it took longer than I thought to finish the case and get the modules back in and memory is fallible ("Red stripe ...

Have I killed my Doepfer Modules?

Or are they just resting, pining for the fjords? I have a Doepfer minicase with a few modules for filtering string synths. A few months ago I finally got around to finishing off the case, staining and Danish-oiling it, for which I (obviously) removed the modules. Last night I fired it up for the fir...

Re: furniture & stands

I can recommend the K&M Spider stands - they hold up to 230 lbs of synth per stand and you can add tiers. They have a smaller footprint, look awesome and transport wonderfully. I'd take them over the Omega stands. I love em. A +1 on the Spider Pro. Before that I tried an (admittedly quite cheap) A-...
