Re: Custom-built multi-bank Roland M-256/M-512 memory cards

...and very good part is that there is not even the need for e-bay involvement in this to be seen, as the word is out here. E-mails and bank account is more than enough as You are in a good light here ;)

Re: TR-909 - weird, attached, power cable

Neat job. Carefully done.
So, why the rush to swap? Is the cable length not enough?
I see that having the socket on a back panel provides just the possibility to change between different cable lengths which is comfortable if changing the setup quite often.

Re: D550 s/h buffer opamp replacement

And when measuring noise floor (A-weighted), how many dBs differ the 5532 and 5238 ?

Re: Another tape cover: The Twins - "Love System"

You got it very well done. That tune is something which I remember very precisely in details (until I began to understand lyrics then I see that the Twins ruined that synthesizer _sound_ ). ;-) This also matches better to your voice. Real Life was little bit too high for Your voice I think. Also I t...

Re: Which Synth Artists do you want us to interview?

Our beloved FAIRLIGHT!! The question to ALL of them: Do You use the Fairlight in the creation process? When was it last time, or do You still use it and arrange with that machine everything or it is just partly in their process? Especially that question goes to Chris Lowe. THere was one interview ar...

Re: ***Write Reviews For The VSE***

Don't bother! We can keep the Forums alive but I think anything website contents related has not changed for the past years and it will probably not change either... unfortunately. Still I bother. They get all the updates and more what I can give, if they only keep the forum usable to my old browse...

Re: Thought about synthesizers channel multiplexing

No, no, no, not so extreme :) :D No, not one DAC per voice, but one DAC per output socket, Sir! To make things straight. So it means that if Korg M1 has 4 outputs on its panel, then it will be 4 DACs, and Roland JD990 which has 8 outputs, gets 8 DACs. Since the current schematic is just as it is now...

Re: ***Write Reviews For The VSE***

I read through all posts, and there was no word if the soundcards with synthesizer onboard are also accepted. Roland RAP-10 for example Another idea: About "find right synth for you" menu, I think that even if the FM synthesizers are digital ones, would not it be a separate category, since most vint...

Re: Thought about synthesizers channel multiplexing

@Mooger.

No you really lost me now the DACs in the JD990 have separate clocks. it cant be done otherwise.

ABout Korg M1 and WS the comparison is about in another thread. The EPROM readout is not enough as its algorithms change the sound too.

Re: Thought about synthesizers channel multiplexing

Wnat You mean? It really depends on the synthesizer itself. My one thought as a experiment was like such to make, however I have no idea what are the real results. But moreover I would be interested just as a challenge, however I have no such noisy digital synthesizers in my setup which would be in ...

Re: Photos of your set-up / studio

That's an old keyboard there! And I'm actually talking about the PC-keyboard! I mean... it has no Windows-keys, so it's kind of old. ^_^ Yes! It is my favourite keyboard of all time since it came out (1994 year KeyTronic) and I have 3 of these , but I could not afford that on that time and I got so...

Re: Buying under-priced vintage synths

1. take the gear for $150 each. 2. try to get him to sell the gear for $100 each. 3. you want to be fair: you tell him it's probably worth more than $150 each and so you offer him $250-300 each. 4. tell him that each would probably fetch $1500 on ebay but you could not afford that price, so you wal...

Re: Favorite sub-$200 Reverb/Delays (Hardware)

For clean reverb tails and as mastering reverb and delay effects 1. Behringer V-VERB 2496 ( 100USD when those were for sale) (you still have to re-cap and secure its cables though as it has build flaws). 2. Behringer Virtualizer 2496 (100 USD) (this one has very good build quality, never needed to o...
