Even cheaper FM:

They probably don't sound as good/bad as the SB pro, but if you put a bitcrusher plugin after them, you should come pretty close.

Re: Waldorf Largo

At least it's not a resource hog, this would probably run nicely on a netbook or similar: System Requirements Windows * Windows XP or better * Intel Pentium 3, 1 GHz or better * AMD Athlon, 800 MHz or better * 64 MB free RAM * VST 2.0 compatible host software that supports virtual instruments, such ...

Re: Behringer Time Machine VM1

The Behringer website still has this thing listed as "Not Available" in the US or Canada. I'm guessing maybe there's some pending lawsuit from EHX. It's cool, and legal, if Behringer wants to clone circuits of famous pedals; the thing I think is lame (and what's gotten them into trouble before) is ...

Re: Behringer Time Machine VM1

Hey, i said i like the sound! :) it's not the ripping off part that bothers me, being rather poor myself, but to make them look almost identical to their ehx counterparts is just lame. i'm thinking of picking up the VD 400, which is even cheaper. that design is probably derived from something too, b...

Re: Reverb pedal for x0xb0x?

How about this?

heheh

I don't think cheap, small and no-cheez fits in the same sentence.
Try hooking up an old spring tank to your mixer, or get a Vermona Retroverb. Only 500 dollars!
what a useless post, sorry, i'm bored.

Re: Behringer Time Machine VM1

Dirty Boots, yeah....
I liked the last minute best. This sounds cool, but i would probably never buy it, just because it's such a blatant ripoff of the Memoryman series. Why can't they design something original? I think this kind of copying is really lame, and probably only hurts their sales...

Re: Basic Soft Sequencer

..... its as if there is a delay between the note being played and the hardware synth making a sound. This is probably due to using a shitty freeware vst. .... Sounds like an ASIO issue after all. You're probably using an integrated sound card, with software monitoring turned on? So what you're exp...

Re: Basic Soft Sequencer

It's probably some kind of setting or driver problem...
What's your setup? (computer specs, midi interface, connections etc)
What do you mean by "lag with a midi out vst"?

Re: lo-fi converter simulation

much ado about bitcrushing :D
i doubt anyone could tell (or care about) the difference between these and any old generic bitcrusher, of which there are several available.

Re: Looking for program that let me see contents of MIDI files

As long as the software supports Program Change messages, it should be easy, no need for any "synth drivers".

Re: need a program

Try Reaper: http://www.cockos.com/reaper/ I don't use it myself, but have heard good things about it. It's not free, but you can use the fully functional demo for as long as you like (or your conscience allows...). About the tracks not lining up; what you're experiencing is probably latency: http://...
