Re: Synths that didn't impress you

Oh yeah, the JX-3P was another. I had the JX-8P at the same time, and it just sounded dry and harsh in comparison. Not necessarily bad, but I don't see why they're more desirable than the 8P.

Re: Kiwi Technics to make KiwiJX8P

The envelopes aren't that bad, but there's always room for improvement. If they could at the least take care of the envelopes and implement PWM, and perhaps somehow tweak the resonance response of the filter it'd really polish off the JX-8P nicely. It's the only synth I'm never selling. Not only for...

Re: "Name that synth"

I love to push virtual analogues off as actual analogues, and then telling the cork sniffers it was actually digital when they're oohing and ahhing over it. :P As long as you don't do anything to give it away, VA's can sound spot on. That or making digital-esque sounds with an actual analogue and ha...

Re: Reminder: it is still about the player not the gear ....

You're right, Rick Wakeman or Jordan Rudess could make the cheapest preset keyboards sound fantastic. Just like John Petrucci, Yngwie Malmsteen, etc... could make an $100 Squier sing. But then it's more about what's being played that's impressive more than the overall sound, which is how it should b...

Ok, no more excuses on not making a new polyphonic synth...

Also, do they accept kidney as form of payment?

Re: Poly Sample & Hold

JX-8P has a random LFO which is more or less the same thing, that or get a JX-10 for double the polyphony. Oberheim Matrix 6 might be another option. Plenty's of VA's out there that could do the job as well.

Re: What got you started into synthesizers?

Simple really, my favorite music from when I was a kid in the early to mid eighties, which strangely enough wasn't by full-on synth acts, however the synths were a big part. Ultravox with that Odyssey lead, Duran with those Crumar Strings and Numan with that Polymoog lead. Kraftwerk deserve a menti...

He already has a Nord Lead which covers all of that already. The SY77 will offer more new sounds to him.

Re: DX7-II, SQ-80, or Nord Lead 3?

The SY77 is really quite the unit, it can do some of your 80's D50-esque sounds and halfway decent analogue emulation just as much as any other ROMpler could pull off. They're not too terribly expensive either. Certainly get a lot for your money with it, though I solely use mine for FM as I have the...

Re: DX7-II, SQ-80, or Nord Lead 3?

Another alternative to the DX7-IIFD would be to get a SY77, as it's everything the DX7 is and more. It's a very professional sounding unit, then again it was their flagship, and even some of the sampled parts have use to this day. Ignoring that aspect it's the most advanced FM keyboard synthesizer, ...
