Here's a quick demo I made the other da with my newly aquired RS-505 Paraphonic. I starts off with the strings running through the 3 selections of "Ensemble." I then demo the "Synth" section, then the Bass and last: all 3 parts layered. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0Ic2pI1Mz4 Thanks for the nice...

Thanks for your answers guys !! Exactly what I wanted to know for sure. Do the VP 330's string sounds often get used without the vocoder? To give one example: in the "Blade Runner" soundtrack (by Vangelis) the VP-330 strings were used a lot (without vocoded voices). And talking about "Blade Runner" ...

G-Force M-Tron and G-Force VSM: Vista-compatible ?

Are the G-Force M-Tron and G-Force Virtual Strings Machine (VSM) Vista-compatible ? (btw: the homepage says resp. "no" and "yes, but only Vista 32" - but I'd like to hear some 'real' experiences - as it is not unusual that the manufacturers say "no" to something that runs on 99,9 % of the PC's, but ...

Prophet-08 - no doubt.
Great sound, lots of features (incl. RM and even ability of FM), and real analog sound.

...but there's no CS-80 for max. $3000...so I'd be crying. :cry: To choose one I'd say: ELKA Synthex; great sound, great features, great tuning stability. And btw: the Synthex uses DCO's but still sounds like a real VCO analog. If I had to choose a VCO one, I'd say the Roland Jupiter-8 if you want p...

I follow the explanations that a.o. Jack Spider and Nathanscribe gave somewhere hereabove for the preference of analog synths. I have experience with a big part of the most wellknown analog synths, VA synths, and digital synths (old and newer ones !) - some I owned in the past, some I had the chance...

I'd say almost any Roland synth that is not analog. Only 3 exceptions (in order of timeline): 1° the TR-909 that is digital but still is one of the greatest drum machines ever 2° the JD-800/JD-990 that still has some great sounds and features 3° the JP-8000/JP-8080 that is imho still the greatest VA...

Coming up in my mind immediately are the EMS VCS3/Synthi-A(KS) and Korg MS-20.
