You have to read the Reid story. He had to knock down his neighbor's garden fence to get it in the house after he found a unit for sale in Australia. I got to touch the Zimmer/Emerson/Jones GX-1 when it was being sampled at Alesis for the Vintage Synths card. I'll bet Eirc Norlander kept the tapes f...

There's always Voyager RME, which you can use tabletop. Around the same ballpark as LP. I know you just sold one, but it was largely for price reasons, right? Some of the Studio Electronics stuff sounds nice in that range, especially for hip hop stuff. Listen to the first demo song on their homepage...

Hah, you have a vision of GX-1s in a warehouse like Raiders of the Lost Ark? If this were in fact true, they would have been destroyed long ago for tax writeoff purposes. I work for a Japanese manufacturer and have seen guys breaking circuit boards with hammers and throwing them into a dumpster. Any...

The Yamahas I've played feel better than the CMEs, and much heavier too.

Topic: Xpander or G2x ?
Replies: 26
Views: 5429

I would find the Xpander much more musically interesting. But I find analog instruments have a soul and character that I haven't found in any VA synths, to the possible exception of Scope. Not to mention that the Xpander will continue to gain value, where the Nord will be worthless in a few years. D...

This demo used Minimax (in Scope hardware) for the bass, with loopback into the virtual external input for overdrive. Also Super Jupiter (Unison synth at end) and Andromeda (most other synth parts). It was my attempt at the NIN sound.

This might be a good way to go: http://www.moogmusic.com/detail.php?main_product_id=5 If you want the LPF to be on the bass itself, then yes you would need power. But the Moogerfooger is made for the application you mention. It can track the input using the envelope follower, or you can control the ...

Why not go modular and use the MOTM filter module (440 I believe). Doepfer also has an SSM filter, big surprise.

I sure wouldn't want to fry one of the last xxx SSM chips on the planet in my DIY project. That would be one long cry in my beer.

I like the orange DS-1 better. The Metal Zone is noisy and noisy, if you get my meaning. You can pick up a DS-1 for $60, it's a lot of fun.

Sounds like an analog lead to me, perhaps with noise modulating the filter or something, and played through a Mutron phaser. Check out audiodamage.com for their Phase One plug in to get close to that sound. Great chord changes on that record. I'm going to have that stuck in my head all day now. :) A...

Creamware got bought by Sonicore and are back in business. Check out the Planet Z forums for Creamware/Scope fans. I just got a Scope card to run through some of the synths and I am very impressed. I've never liked a VA but Minimax blew me away.
