Blofeld users with an editor: I need a small favor

Hello! Here's the situation: A few years back I had a Waldorf Pulse Plus and generated a random patch on it that I really loved. Before I sold the Pulse, I did my best to replicate it on my Blofeld. Now I have a Virus TI2 and would love to try to replicate this patch again. It's not super complicate...

Ableton Live 9

I noticed today that Live has updated their website, and also announced a new version of Live: Live 9. Live 9 will have Max For Live included. Moreover, the new features look like a solution to a lot of the :bang: users have experienced in the past - simple stuff like recording automation and curves.

I have both the Blofeld (have had both desktop and keyboard versions) and the Evolver. I haven't used the OP-1, but based on your needs, I wouldn't push you towards either the Evolver or the Blofeld. If it was between those two, I would go for the Evolver, because you can open up the envelopes and l...

Understand that the world of academic electronic music was not very connected or concerned with commercial electronic instruments. There are exceptions, of course, but in that era, FM was more of an academic pursuit. A friend of mine studied experimental and electronic in the late 70s and described ...

DAMN. Audioterm is awesome, but difficult to interface with the Blofeld Wavetable editor. The Wavetable creator will take a 32-bit wave file at 44100hz/128=344.53125hz and import the first 64 cycles, but there's no way to get Audioterm to output anything like that. It's very cool on its own though!

Additive waveform creator out there?

As I'm paring down my hardware, I am redoubling my interest in the Waldorf Blofeld. What I'm particularly interested in exploiting is the ability to utilize user wavetables. Kotró László Lehel's Wavetable Creator is awesome for this, and the wave creation and morphing functions, in addition...

Blofeld sysex backup bullshit

I'm getting ready to sell my Blofeld desktop so I can upgrade to the keyboard version. I'm trying to do some patch library maintenance and I came across a big problem with a sysex dump. There's nothing wrong on the hardware side, just to be clear! So last year sometime I uploaded some other patch li...

What about the tg77 / sy77. Do these come anywhere close to the fs1r? :hmm: Yes and no! The FS1R, which I own and will never ever ever sell, has 8 "voiced" operators, and 8 "unvoiced operators." The voiced ones can each be one of 7 waveforms (some with additonal parameters), or as a formant. So, ea...

The Kawai K3 and K3m have digital waveform oscillators and analog filters, as people have mentioned. But specifically, they have the SSM2044 filter chips which were also used by the PPG Wave 2.2 and 2.3. It has six voices and sounds fucking awesome.

thanks to this thread- just picked up a real cheap r8mk2 :) Luka, congrats! I've got one and I love it tremendously. My only disappointment is that it doesn't have all of the "Electronic" ROM card internal, so it's lacking a few of the 808 samples. The 808 snare on the ROM card is far better than t...

I had a problem like that with my 828 mkII a few years back and it was because the firewire cable was loose in the back of the 828. The connector isn't the best - see if you can induce the problem by jiggling the cable. If it does it, then the connector is the culprit.

they are multi-stage envelopes, and any attempt to change the envelope parameters on the front panel reverts them to ADSR.

The Fizmo is an incredible piece of gear, but really frustrating if you really want to get into it. There are parameters you can't access at all from the front panel.
