Re: Best EMS VCS3 / Synthi software synth

I have XILS 3. The XILS stuff is written be a former arturia programmer who writes individual models for each synth he makes, it sounds very good.

Re: Which synth to choose?

I don't think you can get a quality synthesizer for $ 300. This is how much synthesizers cost for beginners who are just learning to play. I beg to differ, there are plenty of semi-but-not-truly-vintage (i.e. 90s) synths that are pretty high quality for under $300, as well as things like Behringer'...

Re: Sequential Bought by Focusrite

Our likely accurate prediction: After being his own boss for 50+ years, Dave will now have to answer to corporate higher-ups, will get fed up with that dynamic after the honeymoon has worn off, and will retire from Sequential within 2-4 years max. You know Dave worked for Yamaha and Korg for awhile...

Re: Help identifying difference is E-Mu Procussion models

knowing E-Mu, they were made from 1991 until 1993, because if they didn't have new hardware they just kept pushing out the same machines.

Re: Sequential Bought by Focusrite

Maybe Yamaha can buy Focusrite now. That would definitely Make Dave retire :lol: A lot of the Slutspace chatter is how the P5/10 v4 is Dave's farewell gift. Remember how he always said he didn't want to revisit the past? That changes when you hit 65 and see a lot more past behind you than future ah...

Re: Hardware MIDI sequencer

the keystep just plays the notes for the length it is programmed in the tempo it has programmed, it doesn't know anything about 3/4 4/4 5/4... Also, the original at least can only store 8 sequences.

Re: Newby with a Novation UltraNova

go to novationmusic.com and select Support, then put in novation as the make and ultranova for the model. you're looking for Ultranova 1.4 , which is both a software package and an updater.

Re: Desktop Synth/Sample player alternatives to Blofeld?

A lot of bands just run a laptop , a controller or controllers, and an audio interface. Or used to, that setup is very 2010-ish. A lot of the bands i see are gradually leaking hardware back into their stage rigs.

Re: Desktop Synth/Sample player alternatives to Blofeld?

You'd need the desktop version of a workstation synth, if one exists. Sample playback units have really gone over to softsynths.

Offhand- Korg M3, Roland Fantom (there was a rack version that did sample storage)

yeah i know these are a few years old, but alas there is no Kronos module :D

Re: Juno 60 DCO "ENV" setting?

Setting it to ENV *should* set it to use the ADSR envelope generator to change the pulse width
