Re: Did Enya ever use samplers for her voice?

yea i guess that would help the sound be richer. having each voice be performed vs sampled, but i still can't help but feel like some sampling was employed. maybe just small parts here and there.. like this: https://youtu.be/GnIo73NXo_A?t=18 at the end (0:25) of that part you can hear this "ah..." a...

Did Enya ever use samplers for her voice?

Hi everyone, I recently came to a realization that I've always kinda thought enya would sample her voice for some of the choir type sounds. They really do have a very ADSR feel to them. I realize she could probably do it live but for songwriting i could see it being so much more expedient to sample ...

Re: 1982's Strange Vintage Arpeggiator on Roland EP 6060

interesting synth. never seen that one before. also what is interesting is the built in EQ. i've recently been wondering why virtually all (now excluding this one) lack any kind of EQ.. i mean sure filters are a kind of EQ but an EQ on top of a filter could still result in some significant changes t...

Re: Roland Juno 106 - no sound, unresponsive.

you really should take it to a professional in your area. i don't think an issue like this has a simple obvious fix but you may also be surprised to learn that whatever the problem is, might be singular and once found everything works again.. so while it may take some money to bring it back, it can ...

Re: Disabling Fan for SCSI enclosure for SD SCSI card bad id

yea i checked with the seller of the product and he claims these devices put out virtually no heat themselves and i imagine that the transformer in the old enclosure (probably from the 90's) is generating any more heat than any normal transformer in unfanned gear (like my peavey sp sampler) and ther...

Disabling Fan for SD/SCSI card bad idea? (resolved)

Hi there, So I have recently invested in a 4gb SCSI to SD Card adapter. It's great. I love it. It replaced my whinny SCSI HD in the same Enclosure.. but now that noise is gone, there is another noise.. The fan... it's not horrible but it's definitely very audible... so yea i guess horrible in a stud...

Re: Akai S612 Quik Disk Drive Grounding Cable Purpose?

Jesus I just saw this reply! I've had no problems so far with that, but yes I agree it needs to get fixed as I'm sure it wasn't there for no reason. It would have been nice if they could have made a more elegant solution, but i bet it was a last minute fix to something that was discovered well after...

Re: Synths used in The Psychedelic Furs- Love my way?

So I'm curious too about the xylophone which I do believe from what I've read, TR did play them live. My question is listening to it, it feels like there is more than one note being played.. like a doubling.. i have a xylophone sample set that sounds good, but it sounds too singular compared to the ...

Re: DW8000 vs EX8000 EPROM compatible?

oh wow i thought it had the arp! that's serendipitous news actually. because I ended up having cold feet about it last night.. the deal was "fair" but it was basically the market value and to tie up that much money into a device like that was not wise for me because it would be something i plan on u...

Re: DW8000 vs EX8000 EPROM compatible?

yea good point.. i'm not 100% sure i still have the 07.. i traded the "older" DW awhile back so i'm down to just the one with v12.. but yea it would be nice to not have to open / remove / replace the DW if I have the 07 around somewhere.. i'll have to dig around. i know where it SHOULD be. :)

Re: DW8000 vs EX8000 EPROM compatible?

cool yes i agree, i won't tinker unless there is an actual problem. i HAD to upgrade my DW8000 Ver 07 because it had a very specific issue with not previewing sysex patch zone pushes from midiquest.. while my Ver 11 DW8000 did just fine. So yea we'll see how it goes. I get the device Wednesday night...

DW8000 vs EX8000 EPROM compatible? (resolved)

Hi everyone, I now have one final question about this that I hope someone out there might know. I am about to get an EX8000 from a guy and he did the "press 1 + 2 while powering on" to get the version number. his shows Ver 05. The latest is 12 for the DW8000. I'm 99% sure that the EX is the same har...

Re: EX8000 battery location?

Yea I'm going to do what I did with my Yamaha Rev 7 and use a 2032 battery holder that has wires.. this will allow me to mount the battery somewhere easier NEXT TIME.. :P Something like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/5Pcs-CR2032-6V-Button-Coin-Cell-Battery-Holder-Wire-Case-Box-With-On-Off-Switch/122...
