Re: Twisted Electrons MEGAfm

I'm just trying to figure out if I want to drop $600 on a thing I've seen two demos of so I'm voicing my concern that I plug it in and sound like mario.

Re: Twisted Electrons MEGAfm

I mean, the branding pretty clearly references SEGA. And other synths Twisted Electrons has made (specifically happiNES and deton8) are pretty tied to a retro videogame sound. I wouldn't buy a happines expecting to make anything other than something that sounds cranked out of a nintendo.

Re: Twisted Electrons MEGAfm

I do appreciate the sonic qualities of the MEGAfm. Imo, this has a distinct character to it compared to other modern digital synths. I just don't know how versatile that character is and how useful it is for my purposes. If it's exclusively a chiptune machine built for nostalgia, then I'm not that i...

Re: Twisted Electrons MEGAfm

The (limited) demos sound great. I've always liked FM softsynths, never messed with hardware.

I think I want this but I also have no desire to make chiptune music.

SixTrak Controller -- Novation Remote Zero SL

I'm looking for a sub $200 controller for my SCI SixTrak to add knobs/sliders. It should have midi din so I can connect directly to the SixTrak. I was looking at the Novation Remote Zero SL because they're cheap, but the editor software won't work on my computer (the software is too old, hasn't been...

I like having the ribbon synth on the monotron, would be cool to have a synth with it. Maybe the erebus? an ms20 clone?

Vocal FX Box recs for experimental storytelling

I've been doing these "stories" through my korg monotron delay with mixed results (you can check em out below), but wanted to keep going with it. I was looking for a delay/pitchshifter or any other sub-$500 vocal processing box that has relative clarity in addition to or to replace the monotron dela...

korg ms20 mini controllers? (theremin or ribbon controller)

I haven't bought the ms20 yet, but I was wondering if there was a cheap ribbon or theremin controller that would work well with it? Aren't the voltages weird?

thanks for the advice, everybody! The initial impulse behind this was to add a 2nd detuned oscillator, resonance filter, ring mod, noise, lfo, and adsr to my Wurlitzer. I was thinking of the wurlitzer's tube amp as a single oscillator and I wanted to give it more. So, I was hoping to audio input and...

I kind of want two adsr envelopes, but im trying to cut costs unless anyone knows a good utility dual envelope generator? For some reason I was having a hard time finding something cheap.

new to Euro, how am I doing?

I'm thinking of this as an audio input rig to modulate and mess up my tubey wurlitzer. With pedal FX, I can take the wurli to the moon right now, but I'd like to go even further. I was thinking of replacing the Richter Anti Oscillator with an Erica Fusion VCO to match the tubes in the wurlitzer, but...

sansamp or ...?

I was thinking about picking up an amp modelling pedal for my wurlitzer EP for apartment DI recording into a tape recorder.

Is sansamp the one to get? Any boutique pedals I'm missing? Any other classics? Or are the cheap ones usable, like those joyo american or british amp pedals?

Any tips for getting aftertouch to work again? Can't find anything online. I'm hoping to solve that when I replace the old bushings.

Anyone have a parts multimoog with that PCB I'm missing? I'm guessing no.

I got a micromoog from a nice dude who's on this forum. I don't think he played it much and it needed some love. I cleaned it out, and I'm about to replace the bushing on the keys. It's a little weird because it's a micromoog pcb inside the body of a multimoog. It seems like the original owner kept ...

thanks for your input -- didn't mean to sound ungrateful. Too many synths, especially a free one, is a good problem to have. Definitely some of these anxieties are because I feel undeserving of my gf's dad's love. I guess I could sell a synth and get a therapist for a month :guinness: Thank you all ...

My girlfriend's dad bought me a roland jd-xi, and I don't know what to do with it. I kind of like it? But I feel like I have too much stuff. I want to keep it minimal because of space and money issues. My hypothetical set-up would be roland jd-xi and korg ms-20 mini, (plus a micro-granny sampler and...

learning notes, learning piano?

I started synthing last year on a microbrute and a korg monotron delay, played the drums and a little bass in punk bands in highschool/college, but never bothered to learn music according to sheet music. I can kinda sing -- my ear is pretty decent. I recently got a synth with a full weighted keyboar...

I usually record each part live into my audio interface/DAW, or if I'm away from my computer, I record my sound/patch into my portable zoom recorder (which also doubles as my audio interface).

I don't really want to spend more than $700. The only reason I would spend more than that is for a perfourmer. Over $1k and I won't be able to pay rent next month. The Matrix 1000 is cool, but without a hardware editor it's like $600 for a preset box, which kinda bums me out. Also, I have a friend w...

I'm trying to decide between an ambika, a perfourmer, and an ax60 for my first polysynth. Buttons, sliders, knobs, whatever. At my pay-grade I can't be picky, but I don't want to page through an LCD screen. I'm looking for phat sounds and experimental noises. I make horror soundtrax. To my ears, the...
