Re: Someone Needs to make The EDP WASP

This would be an instant cash cow. The original are very rare due to build quality and numbers. If a company like KORG got the rights they could use the technology from the volca keys keyboard and make it larger and keep the step sequencer and then just use the original circuit designs from EDP. Add...

Re: Looking forward...

For sure 'investing' in instruments is like investing in cars. Most depreciate immediately, some less so, but end the end, they are only worth anything after 30 years in mint condition (and all of the costs that that applies) ;) It will be fun in though, in 15-20 years looking back and trying to scr...

Looking forward...

In contrast to the "Looking back..." thread, What items are you buying now and fully believe that in 20-30 years they will be worth a mint? And what are we paying too much for now that will be worth pennies in the future? Instant classics: I just got a Bass Station II before they quit making them. I...

Re: When recording synths...

Alot of good advice here, and some I don't fully buy into, but I'll throw my tip in. To fill out a dull mix (after eq and comp and proper mixdown-not mix up!) On my master I will use an overall light compression with makeup gain to squash it down a bit and raise the overall level and then a maximize...

Re: Alt-J: "Dissolve Me" patch

I've got a MINIAK at home, I will give it a go this evening. Are you trying to get it close enough to do a cover? edit: welp, i dont know if the micron/miniak will get there (at least without more effort). I'm also not sure if the micron has the mod patch panel options. started with an itialized pat...

Would these be the same keys that are found on the MicroKorg? It would be interesting to see the exact width and if one could remove the keys and convert this to rackmountable.

Re: HUGE MOOG MUSIC NEWS COMING MONDAY!!!

I predict the prices will be too high, and they will give up on euro when they dont sell like the proverbial hotcakes. Possibly the only accurate prediction here, I hope not but... Another unlikely prediction but an honest wish: What if they debut a drum machine? Fully analog with digital control, ...

Re: the power of nostalgia, impulsive/compulsive, GAS, etc

Sometimes I end up selling something that I thought I would love or keeping something I thought I would hate. Truth. I bought an mc-303 knowing i would hate the sequencer and general workflow, but got it anyway. Kept it way too long and finally ended up selling it for break even so all in all not t...

Re: trigger vs gate

So the gate stays open as long as the key is held for example The trigger is a blip at key on Thanks! also... Gates can be set to stay open for a specific amount of time or a set to open at a specific threshold. Even if the note has been hit and released. If a snare has a long reverb effect you can...
