i have a handful of very smooth and warm pads on my Ion that i've made. my Fantom-S has some really nice ones in it (though i haven't touched the thing in a long time) and my DX200 also houses some great pads. it occurs to me that i don't really own a crucial "pad machine" as it were.

My pad machines are the Oberheim Matrix-1000 and the Roland Alpha Juno-1. I also layer those with software, like CS-80V and SQ-8L (the Ensoniq SQ-80 VST).

You obviously don't know AC. That guy LOVES his Jupiter-4. Understandably too. It's a great machine. And the pads it can make are pretty sweet, I should know, I begged him for a demo and he showed me one. Besides, he has more synths than that. His demo:



I like the pads on the Jupiter-4, as well. Dark, haunting, in line with the music I want to do. Still contemplating of whether to get one or not.

Better that, than someone posting comments about instruments that they haven't even laid fingers on.

Sorry, chief, but I have. Feel free to assume on any other matter, though.

Now who's assuming? At no point have I insinuated that YOU have no experience on any given machine - I didn't specify individuals as I have no knowledge as to who has played what and was thus speaking generally.

The tone of your post suggested that you were looking down on people who only speak of machines that they have own, and I was pointing out that it was better that they spoke from first-hand experience rather than on that which they do not.

Ok, fair enough. I just assumed =) you were talking about me in particular since it was a direct quote. My mistake and no offense I hope.

That said, I am guilty of pimping my JX-10 at every opportunity. :wink:

No offence taken at all! :wink: My original comment was actually intended to be light-hearted dig at people who speak authoritatively of instruments they've never played, so I was a little surprised that it had been taken the wrong way, but I can see how it might make someone assume the worst. (it wouldn't have 'worked' if I hadn't quoted your posting).

The JX-10 deserves pimping - I had a JX-8P, which I sold to pay for repairs on my Jupiter 6 and still find its 'Soundtrack' preset to be a sublime pad - 12 voices of that would have been majestic!
