Wow! That sounds VERY nice! My favorites are the "lost east devouring children" and the "short of decline" ones. Nice work! A couple of questions for ya: What is the Bass sound that sort of comes in every so often layered with the Alesis Ion. (Sounds like it could be a backwards sample of something,...

great suggestions, thanks for the info! This confirms my theory that I need to post process instead of change synths. I notice there are quite a few of the Lexicon LXP-1 and LXP-5's out there on ebay right now, do those offer the same quality and "fullness" of reverb as the LXP-15, but just with sli...

Best ambient synth when on a budget?

Hey all I'm looking for a next piece of gear that will give me some options I can use to make some deep...dark...ambient music. Please don't slap me for using the words "Thomas Koner" and Electribes in the same paragraph, but, all I have for a studio right now are all three electribes, en ESQ-1, a Y...

Ok, here goes. On your LCD screen, when you first power up the synth, you should see either SINGLE or MULTI on screen, followed by the name of the patch, such as SINGLE IA-1 Piano. But if your presets are toast, then every sound, no matter which button is pressed, reads BRASS or something of the lik...

What is the parameter on screen that controls mod depth? (What menu do I find the mod depth under?) Also, is there a setting in Modes that I need to be under to have two oscs fade in and out (Sync, AM, etc.)? Sorry, but I am a complete newbie at programming the ESQ.

Thanks

ESQ-1 Dronal Ambient sounds needed. Programming advice plZ!

I have been toying around with the idea of making some ambient beat-less tracks on the ESQ-1. I know it's possible to make some abstract cycles and what not, but how do I go about programming them from scratch? I cant seem to find any artists who use the ESQ-1 as a stand-alone ambient machine either...

ESQ-1 Dead Battery, How soon until Leakage?

I'm getting a "Battery Voltage Low" Error Message every time I switch on the Ensoniq. How long does it usually take after the battery is dead, for it to leak out and screw over the entire board? BTW, anyone in the Novi/Wixom area in Michigan who replaces the batteries in them? I saw the Detroit-area...

909 Bass Drum Samples Sound *Weak* on the ES-1 MKII

Is it just me, or do Electronic BD samples (909, ER-1, JoMox, etc.) sound weak on the Electribe ES-1 MKII? I've tried using the Normalize Func.; Actually I use Normalize on ALL my Samples....maybe thats the problem? I know the ER-1 always has a Deep 909 type BD, but I can't seem to sample the BD dru...
