Re: Looking for a builder? Post here!

not a synth, but i just picked up a cheap wurlitzer 203 and the amp needs servicing. probably replacing a few caps and resoldering some wires. if anyone is available in the southeast, hit me up.

Re: What kind of nut is this? (ESQ-1)

i'm not sure exactly what kind of nut it is. you could probably take it to your local fastenal and have them find some replacements.

Re: What’s the difference between Bon Iver and Oneohtrix Point Never?

i thought this was going to be a joke.

i'm not a huge fan of opn but i'm aware of what he sounds like and i have no idea how the two are related at all.

Making a joke about a horrific and ongoing problem in our world in a poor attempt to satirize a valid concern put forth about the use of certain terms in synth manuals.

you're very close to enlightenment.

now just get rid of all the synths.

then get rid of the piano, and just compose on pen and paper.

then throw away the pen and paper.

then stop listening to music altogether.

It makes me feel old to see all the reactions that reflect a lack of awareness of the original Monomachine. Of course, the original Monomachine was a strange design choice then, and it's still a strange choice here. I would think it's a choice made to save money on development and production. Rathe...
