P12: no because they are digital oscillators not DCOs
I think they decided that It does count towards the effects. I haven't noticed a noisy chorus in my 60. Love the juno for drum sounds! Don't be afraid to use the high pass filter for bass drum patches. At first I thought I wanted to preserve the low end as much as possible, but doing side by side comparisons with my 808, I noticed the right bass drum sound was just slightly off in that the super lows were out of control. A little high pass later and you almost can't tease the two apart! I also found that a square wave peaking through above the self osc where the filter just starts to open gives just the right timbre to those frequencies. And if you browse the sound on sound articles about drum sounds, you should be able to get the 808 cow bell on it with the self osc as well, although I should mention my 808's bell is a higher pitch than the one I got using the sos frequencies; but again: tweaking, tweaking.Infinity Curve wrote:OK, I'm in if it's not too late. Just got a minty Juno 106 on the weekend and already have a pretty good start on a track.
Slightly unrelated question, but is it normal for the chorus to be so noisy? It's like a noticeable noise sweepy woosh when not playing, and it can be heard over quieter patches; the chorus itself sounds great, so pretty sure it isn't malfunctioning. Sure I can cancel it with a notch filter or some EQ'ing, just was kind of surprised how noticeable it is. Loving the synth already though. Took me all of 5 minutes to program my drum sounds on it.
Also, if I use the chorus on the 106, does that count towards the effects?

Yep, onboard effects count if you use them. I do understand the "effects are part of the sound" line of thought, but we're basically just sticking with the rules as we've practiced them thus far.Infinity Curve wrote:Also, if I use the chorus on the 106, does that count towards the effects?
The A4 qualifies, but as has been pointed out, the Prophet 12 is a hybrid synth using digital oscillators, not DCOs.ejlif wrote:So the Dave Smith Prophet 12 or Elektron A4 qualify?
This is kind of a fun idea; I participated in a game compo for a few years that did this and it gave some really interesting results.ninja6485 wrote:I was thinking we could do something where each person gets a word that would become the theme of their song, viz.. earth, violence, transportation, love, ect.
