Keep 'em coming guys!

Maybe you have noticed how quick the turnaround has been, send us a review and within a day or so we have it online for real!

And some of you guys are now just 1 more review away from becoming VSE Review Team members :)

Are reviews updates being accepted??

I mean, there are some reviews that could be improved with a more extensive description of the synth or being more objetive.

Just giving an example, the review for the popular EMU command station.

XL7, MP7 and PK7 are exactly the same machine, but with a different ROM installed. I think you could put instead appart reviews for both of them, a single review but making emphasis on the engine and the cooler features, pros and contras (patchcord sections, zplane filters, sequencer capabilities, etc).

uh???

All right Mr VSE....


Just have some patience with this non-english speaker, je je.

I supposse the reviews must have certain lenght. Everybody copy-paste the reviews from Vintage Synth, to describe their synths on sale on Ebay. So a too long review is as bad as a light one.

I'm writing reviews for the Electribes EMX1- ESX1, wich are between the most popular drum machines nowadays.

I can provide in a couple of months a deep review of the FIZMO. Need to dig it more.

The command station review is almost done. I can write a more complete review, and an huge review explaining how to create 12 waves patches, sync start time delay, and a full explanation of how the patch cords works...

Also, the V synth's engine full explained.

The review of the cool Yamaha RM1x could be fixed. This drum machine is so underrated. It's FULL of features for a $200 synth. Too cheap.

just a way to say thanks to this great place

I could do reviews of my esteemed collection of shitty 90's romplers but i'm not sure you guys would want them. I could also do a killer Casio Rapman review.

Balma... All the synths you mention we already have reviews of here at the VSE. You could add some updated info to our existing reviews if you want, but in that case, they should not be long.

Starcrusher... Yeah, romplers are not much interesting...

Geneticcode... Don't know why you say denied/fail... The only reason your post was not yet approved was because you pretty much copied/pasted the description from FutureRetro's XS site, and then changed the words around a little bit. The point is to submit a review in your own words, and based on your own experiences and opinions with the instrument. So we are going to have to spend a lot of time on yours if we publish it.
