Hey mate! Long time no see. How are you doing?

The keyboardless D50 already exists, although just slightly bigger and pricier than the Boutiques... As Black Tomorrow mentioned above, the V-Synth with VC1 does it; but especially the V-Synth XT that has the VC cards integrated already, and no keyboard. I am absolutely sure that you would love that synth for its sampler even without the D50 on top :mrgreen:
All good! I've been keeping low profile due to modular addiction ;)

Yeah the V-synth would be great but pricey and desktop form factor is always easier for me to deal with. In fact maybe the V-synth is what needs reissuing in a slightly different format, maybe patchpoints (we can dream).

Well, tell me more about this modular addiction ;) Sounds familiar.

Ha, the V-Synth XT can be positioned as tabletop piece, no problem. Rather ingenious mounting design, actually.

I'd be all over a reissued V-Synth, especially if they'd focus on the sampling capabilities (instead of cheesy presets like the V-Synth 2). Patchpoints, I doubt it, but would be excellent :D

Cheers :drinks:

Also, MPC1000. I think the market could really benefit from a current-production hardware sampler that doesn't need to be tied to a computer and isn't octatrack expensive.
Someone just released an ST clone... can't recall name, but it's a straight hardware emulator of that and a bunch of other ancient PCs.

I second that !!!
So this is kind of being done with this thing:



It outputs any amount of sample material through the original 8-bit DACs, and you can filter it with three different filter options, one of which--the CEM--is CV-controllable. The sequencing aspects haven't been finalized yet, but it should be at least to the original Linndrum level, with the possibility of per step filter/pitch control, which would put it at or above the SP-1200s sequencer. Also, CC control of everything! It won't quite have that particular SP sample aliasing crunch, but I'm sure will have some serious crunchiness just the same.

I can't really see the point of this. if you want the hardware for some specific reason (eg, you want a dedicated Notator machine), you can buy ST's for peanuts (I threw mine away, wasn't even worth trying to sell), and if you just want to run ST stuff, there are a bunch of emulators around for a few platforms, than can give you large desktop, full colour hi-res screens and run at hundreds of times the speed and memory of the originals... I have most of my old Atari environment running under emulators...

yeah, no disagreement there. But I think this is more for vintage PC nerds than casual musicians just wanting to run Cubase or whatever. Actually, it sounds like there are compatibility issues with this hardware and Cubase (+ dongle) so probably not really a good option.

The problem with emulators is usually MIDI connectivity and other minor niggles. Emulators are mostly made for playing old games pixel perfectly.

I got all excited when I read this, but then had a look at the kickstarter and it looks like it's not going to happen. :( Dude probably ran out of kickstarter money before he could get it finished and now everybody's left in the lurch. It's a pity, he should have been aiming for 5-10 times the budget he got, so that he could afford to devote himself to it fully until it was done. $5k will only keep you going for a month or two after you take out the cost of parts, so any mistakes in prototypes or hurdle you may come across on the way can derail the whole thing.

I'm slowly working my way up to doing something similar, but I'm going about it very slowly and just figuring out one element at a time until I've got everything ready to go and just need to put it all together, but that's years off anyway. I imagine someone else will get it finished before I do, but that's life.

That's because Boutique is DIGITAL and DIGITAL is like MATSTURBATIONS with p**n.

I'd like to see Jupiter Roland 5 reissued for under $899 dollars with on board fx and iOS capability.
Yes I also feel this way about the Jupiter 80. I hate to be an "analog snob", but Roland has certainly failed to capture the classic sounds of older models with the newer digital synths. They should just license or sell the Jupiter 8 to Korg so they can produce it and make us all happy.

Au contraire! He reached the kickstarter goal and is very close to finishing at this point (maybe he didn't update the page). More recent updates here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/958737544186817/

He's been pretty on top of it, and suggested that if this first batch goes well he'll make more.

You know that colmon shouldn't be taken seriously, right?

The CS80 doesn't have fakewood. It has hard wood - and why it weights 100kg.

Adding memories would wreck it. It's the lack of memories that contributes to using it in creative ways. There's no option to store programs - so you never think about it. You always only engage its control surface, uninhibited.

I would really, really, really love to see an authentic Oberheim OB re-issue. I am just not sold on the OB-6 being enough like the older ones. Musictrackjp's video has been the only one that I have seen where someone has made it sound like an older one (in that case an OB-8), but being that this thread is just for fun, I want a perfect recreation of an OB-XA or OB-X, with midi, that doesn't cost a fortune. :D

Really ?

Sounds a h**l of a lot like the older ones to me here. Obviously not absolutely 100% , but pretty damn close .. :

Despite the (rather misleading) paint job, the OB6 is more based on the earlier SEM stuff, than the later OB-Xa/OB-8.

You're right. So perhaps my issue is more with the filter. I'll readily admit, I can only base this on the demos I have heard, but (to me at least), the OB-6 is just missing something that the older units had. I will also admit that this could all be in my head. Or it could also be that I like the sound of the CEMs. I don't know for sure, but I do like the sound of the filters on the SEMs, so who knows....
