Re: What got you started into synthesizers?

Hi, my music addiction began in '75 when I got my first guitar and took beginner's lessons. At the end of the decade, I developed my own heavy Beatlemania infection, much to the disapproval of my mom. She still doesn't like them now because I played them all day without an interruption :lol: . Never...

Re: Wendy Carlos/"Switched-On Bach" Available for Download??

Hi,

thanks for bringing this back to my attention - I was looking for it a while ago, but now I actually bought the vinyl record on Ebay :) . Oh, and of course the record is pre-"Wendy" (i.e. "Walter" ) ;) .

Hi again,

after thinking it through for a few days, this is what I did some minutes ago (not $$$ but €€€, though :lol: ).

Re: 4/8-Track Recommendation?

Hi, you might try and look for a Tascam 488 MkII. It has 2 XLRs. I had one for a couple of years (as well as a 424 MkI), and it never let me down. However, I sold it about 2 months ago when I switched over to a Tascam DP 24 digital portastudio. The 488 MkII (in excellent condition) sold for 150 Euro...

Re: Desktop Monosynth

Arturia Minibrute. Great sounds, well built (except maybe for the keyboard weights, which may need to be glued on back again after they fell off :? ), and great value for the money.

Hi everybody, I do play several instruments (mainly but not only guitars), which currently include two synths: a Yamaha DX21 and an Arturia Minibrute. Being a complete noob concerning MIDI, I have the following question: I'd like to load Sounds/Patches into the DX21 via MIDI. But I'd prefer not to u...
