Re: Kawai K3 won't boot, looking for firmware

I know it seems silly but I've reached out to Kawai in the past for chips and such for their older units and somehow they've always managed to respond AND have something useful for me. They've been a remarkably cool company support wise considering they haven't released a synth in ages.

Re: Deluge sampler+synth

"It does a little bit of everything but excels at nothing." I disagree here. I think the sequencer is fantastic. The fastest one I've ever worked with and pretty comprehensive. The fact that it's good at sequencing cv, midi and it's own internal stuff all at once is also pretty great. Also... as a p...

Re: Eurorack Infernal Noise Machine in development

looks nice. excited! desktop version would also be fine. another desktop run would be epic That is also in the planning stages. There are a few logistics to figure out, since the original desktop INM had 9 jacks (1/4") but this new version has 34. I might need a bigger box... :banana: :banana: :ban...

Re: Put your Album Release into this Thread!

Hey all... Silber Records released my latest, "Sans Fixer", this weekend. This is what they have to say about it: Drone ambient. Minimalist. Hopeful melancholia. Like a lost piece of Brian Eno's 1970s catalog, Chvad SBs San Fixer defies easy categorization while putting you in its own unique world. ...

Re: The Tempest Is Dead, Long Live The Tempest

The Tempest just sounds dope. It's not a sampler. Being being stuck on that... I don't even understand the point in mentioning it. It was never going to have user samples. It's a completely non-existent argument. It's a synth. It's a synth with a ton under the hood. It's a lot to work through. It's ...

Re: Really annoying basic behavior of some digital gear.

Never bothered me. I always overwrite "first patches" to a default blank template anyway whenever possible to program off of. If I need a synth to go back to anything I just drop in a program change and call it a night. Live? Program changes all day long. My hands are usually tied up on the keys so ...

Re: Small standalone effects box?

Zoom MS70CDR is indeed great for the price and easy to use. My go to for effects recently has been the Organelle. Loads of patches/parameters too and it can sample sounds or be used as a standalone poly/mono synth. another voice for this. what it does for the price is nuts. stereo ins and out. just...

Re: Pulsar-23 by Soma

All good points and I also agree. Like you I ordered when they were both barely announced ideas. Both expressive. Both cool in a myriad of ways. Both their own character for days... and that's a thing. Its a pro and a bit of a con. No worries though. Both are fantastic to own use and touch.

Re: Handheld Recorders for Sound Design

Your welcome and regarding the H1 and your co-workers perspective... I don’t disagree. There is absolutely an extra layer of consideration (and gear) to be taken into account with the larger units. Using the H6 without a softcase/bag would, for me, suck. So just having a pocket device to flip out on...

Re: TRS/TS cables

It depends on the device. You aren't getting any benefit in any case. The VCA is unbalanced out and the Tascam is unbalanced in. Use an unbalance TS cable and you should be fine.
