Re: Korg ARP 2600 availability

Thanks KSS and SynthBaron for the replies. On the scope it's just a brief notch when operating at LF and is almost completely smoothed out when operating at audio range. As far as calibration, the VCO2 DC offset and symmetry trimmers, which I assume are what you're referring to KSS, are not easy to ...

Re: Korg ARP 2600 availability

I'm getting some unexpected behavior from VCO2's sine output. I noticed a click on certain patches when using the sine as an LFO. I put the sine output on a scope and there's a notch right at the peak of the wave. The notch is also there on the triangle wave output, but the saw and square waves look...

Re: Moog Matriarch 70’s Stringer sounds?

The Matriarch has an onboard stereo delay, and you can modulate the delay times and set a delay time offset between L/R. Theoretically you should be able to patch a stereo chorus. How well it works on the Matriarch would depend on whether you're able to apply very subtle modulation to the delay time...

If you're still looking for a UCX, there is one listed in the FS section. No idea if the seller ships to your neck of the woods but couldn't hurt to ask

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

Yes I understand what you said, and I've said same myself. But my point being if M32 have a true Moog designed oscillator a chip based 3340 synth using digital EG then makes comparing M32 with Crave more in line with the usual misleading marketing strategy more than a replica. I know Starky made th...

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

Is what actually true? I'm not sure I understand what you're asking.

The poster I responded to said he thought Behringer was only releasing replicas of long out-of-production synths. I was attempting to point out an example of them having a go at an existing product.

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

However... they have not really done stuff *this* blatant in recent years (at least not that I'm aware of, though that Fischer Amps deal seems suspiciously like their old habits). Cloning obsolete circuits to make cheap analog synths that were long "out of print" is not really in the same sort of t...

Re: Wishing Roland would make a Alpha Boutique?

I wouldn't mind seeing it made. To me the AJ has its own sound and is more interesting than the other Junos. It would be pretty cool if they made something that looked like the Reaktiv MPG-50 controller, with dedicated controls for all the parameters.

Re: Audio Interface - How to choose?

Yeah after reading through all nice replies RME is for sure looking nice. I think I will start looking for used models as I am saving money. Might be that I get a find :) One question regarding the UCX though: does it have a master volume knob? Or is that controlled in the software? The main knob o...

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

But there is clearly a part of Behringer's market who think fucking over critics and being a bully is OK, and even meritorious, as long as they can buy cheap copies of 40-year-old synths and that seems to be where he thinks his market lies. That is the tragedy being played out for me. The idea that...

Re: Quoth Hidden Mix sound.

I don't hear it as being the same sound in the TV clip. I think MS20 is a good guess. Maybe sampled into a FZ-10M and run hot through the Casio's filter for that crackly distortion. SH-101 can also make that kind of grainy sound when you modulate the filter with the noise source. Could be that sampl...

Re: Best way to enhance my electronic drums

It's not a pedal but an MS20 is one of the more fun drum processors to me. DRM2 is another one I have liked - really any synth with an external input is worth trying. I agree with you that the RME preamps, while good for recording audio, aren't really the type you want to be overloading for characte...

I like Yamaha FM for pads.

Also, you mention Eventide. Those machines can really bring a pad sound to life. Maybe grabbing an Eve and running the synths you have through it could be the answer for you.

Since you already have the Ion, I would suggest an MPC, a mixer, and a couple effects. A simple setup like that would give you lots to explore.
