Re: Andy Akiho

I'm a sucker for marimba music. Have always wanted a real wood one (had an yamaha synthetic one once). Alas, they are more expensive than I could possibly justify.

Thanks for posting this!

Re: Does anyone use Propellerheads Reason?

I have spent so much time and money on Reason over 20 years I can't even add it up. To it's credit I can still open song files from 2001. But sadly there's so much that needed to be improved over the years, that I feel I should have moved on from it a long time ago. I still use it to record my euro...

Re: What new booty did you buy?

Gonna be a Greek fest for me soon. Just scored a Dreadbox Hypnosis and Erebus 3 from a fellow Wiggler. This will need to be it for awhile as I was a bit too generous to myself in 2020. 2021 will be a "let's get real here" year.

Re: Ensoniq Lovers Unite

When I acquired my Mirage it had a Gotek drive in it. The previous owner said that the Mirage was “flaky”. Indeed. I could never suss out the drive from the flakiness and where the overlap was. Besides, I have a bad neck and the New drive location was an ergonomic nightmare, bend to side, try to re...

Re: RIP Chick Corea

What a sad day for music lovers of all kinds. Chick Corea was one of the last piano legends that I had hoped to experience live someday... It is always sad when people pass away.

Update - solved. Had a nice couple of emails from Jacek from Polyend. I apparently wasn’t following the sequence to ‘reflash’ the firmware. Great to have this baby operational again.

Synthezise Loop is under CMD + Wave The Audio-In Disk is Def the one to get. Has the Time-Dicer and Parallel FX Algos. Another one which is very nice is the RezFilter-Disk. Comes with FM-Effects which let you FM samples with them self or other samples. P.S.: I recommend checking out "The Daydream S...

Re: Hardware recorders with overdubbing

My old Roland VS840 8 track works this way. It has 2 stereo inputs, but either can be routed to any pair of tracks. 4 recording tracks are "mono" but these are actually just 2 stereo routed in the mixer as mono and can easily be hard-panned for stereo. The remaining tracks are 2 stereo. Programmabl...

Re: Dreadbox Medusa monosynth

Anyone ever have an issue with their Medusa not booting up? Mine appears to be a big paperweight. I just sent a ticket to Polyend Support. Just wondering if there’s anything to try in the meantime. Thanks.

I read that the Strega is taller than the others. Maybe you’ve already factored that in?

Re: Ensoniq Lovers Unite

Yup, lotharek. Works like a charm. Yeah, worked great on my Mirage. Interestingly, it also helped me wrap my head around the arcane sample assignment method because each preset already had three U/L sounds. Anyone put a Gotek in their Mirage? Or had power supply issues when using the Gotek or Lotha...

I own both the SQ-80 and a Mirage. Mirage has been in the shop for ages (Covid and unexplained issues). I scored my SQ-80 for 100 bux from a kindly gentleman who just wanted it gone to make space. The first time I had my Mirage operational and was playing with preset disks I was beaming from ear to ...
