Re: Behringer 2600

For me the Odyssey seems like an advance over this as far as UI goes. There's a point where knob per function ..or slider in this case..becomes as awkward and cumbersome as multifunction knobs. Add patch cables and this thing becomes as confusing as digging through a jumble of eurorack cables to se...

Re: Dave Smith hints at Sequential Prophet 5 Rev4/Prophet 10

Not gonna preorder this one, but oddly if I do get one I want it to say “Prophet 5” even if it’s got 10 voices.

Re: Dave Smith hints at Sequential Prophet 5 Rev4/Prophet 10

Luckily, this isn’t a limited release or anything, so you will have plenty of time to mull it over. This is the crux of it for me - no need to rush (I hope). I'm sitting in the living room looking at a KArp 2600, MS10, Korg 700 and Korg 700S 'cos there's no room for them in the studio. I don't need...

Re: Dave Smith hint of a new synth coming up in August

Anyone spotted anything anywhere about upgrading from 5 to 10 via adding the second board later?

Re: Korg ARP 2600 availability

Re: JJ Burnel best punk bassist ever?

Wouldn't disagree with JJ, but Paul Simonon is up there (but less of a thumper?).

Stretching the definition of "punk" a little I'd say Derek Forbes, but JJ works for me.

Re: How do you describe modular to laypeople?

Most non-musical people I know have no comprehension of what a synthesiser is, never mind a modular. Other musicians tend to focus on the sounds they hear rather than the source or interface. No-one really seems to care about the wall of modular in my experience, so I just tend to say that "this was...

Piano (as previously stated).

It becomes a pillow automatically when required, plus it doesn't drone when used as such.

Re: KORG SR 120 MINIPOPS CLOCK IN?

I've chickened out on my SR 120 in case I ruin it. And my TR-77, my KR-33 and Auto vari 64.

Looks simple on youtube, but I've only built a few kits. Damn, I'm even scared to repair my CR-8000 buttons!

Man's gotta know his limitations.

Re: Korg Arp 2600 Arrival Date

Had mine over 3 months now - the smell is still there, it was never bad, but by now it's quite pleasant.

Sound and form factor wise, it's more than pleasant - it's wonderful.

Glad they are still arriving for folks. :party:

Re: Korg Arp 2600 Arrival Date

I was watching some Behringer System 100 videos just now and while I liked the sound, I've suddenly realised that the Korg Arp 2600 workflow has killed my GAS for the system 100 stone dead. I think I'm ok with it, but feel a bit disappointed. I have 7 G6s full of Doepfer which is fine, but seeing al...

Re: Erm.. Romplers?

JV-1080 is hard to beat if you want a classic rompler.

That said, the Mellotron Micro is a fascinating combo with modular. I don't gig with my M4000D or my modular, but in your shoes I'd add the Mellotron Micro.

Really sorry to hear that. We may never know if this was Korg overpromising or dealers over selling ARP2600s they had already been told they wouldn't get, but it hasn't been handled well.
