Re: KORG miniKORG 700FS

I dig it. Been lusting after a Maxi version for years. This is more attainable and probably good enough. this is my opinion. I had a Maxi and loved it. I'd love either that, a 770, or this; but whatever it is needs to have external control options. midi is even better than cv/gate, so this is great...

Re: Something new from Make Noise?

from the lines forum: "when the 0-CTRL was announced last year, I tweeted that it would be cool to hear Alessandro do a series of “0-Coast + 0-CTRL + effects” recordings like his “Forse” trilogy with the Buchla Music Easel, and he responded “Close but no cigar…” followed by “What I meant was that th...

Re: Korg 2600 Mini

it's adorable, I love it. much easier to justify adding this to my original 2600 than adding the FS version. but both ideas are insane... this is definitely going to be less of an interactive/playable experience versus the kind of "full immersion" you feel playing the full size version; but it'll st...

Re: Synth reductionism..or less is less

I frankly lack the skill and talent to not have loads of gear. Hmmm... that’s kind of a strange way to look at it. Lots of talented people out there making great use of large systems. Just depends on what resonates with an individual. This idea that smaller systems automatically mean better creativ...

Re: new Synthi inspired machine coming from Erica Synths

Are there any Syntrx users on the forum who had previous experience with the Vermona Perfourmer Mk2 and can write something about the advantage of one over the other in terms of sound quality in the basic VCO, VCF, VCA configuration? I am asking about the strength of the voice itself, the core of t...

Re: new Synthi inspired machine coming from Erica Synths

it's not a 1:1 copy and it's not meant to be. this is what Erica says, and i read it everywhere. but when you copy a much desired vintage synth's (remarkable) interface and lay-out to such detail, you are clearly trying to appeal to the people who want a synthi. ... this could have been a great syn...

Re: Fitting 0-Coast and 0-CTRL into a case

OP's original pic below. cool idea. I'd like to see it more in a Music Easel type of case. something that fits it closer with both modules in the case bottom, then a removable lid (ideally). but this is cool too. I'd say check out the Buchla/Serge/Synthi sub-forum. there are some threads on DIY-ing ...

Yah, that's Survive's (or one of their member's) studios, they're the dudes who did the Stranger Things theme(s) amongst other things.
Would be pretty damn happy with this place and gear.

I maybe only used it every couple of weeks because it was on the floor. yeah the floor, or near it, is a bad place for any gear really.

Re: Korg 2600 Mini

I believe the K2600 Mini is designed for 19” rack compatibility. if not it's awfully close, going by eyeballing with the "Volca unit" measurement. perhaps they wanted to do similar to Beh's rack-able offering, but give you the option of having it in the Tolex case as well. looking at my 2600 with a...

Either he was telling the truth and Sequentix has an incredibly unprofessional approach to QC or he was making up a congenial cover for the fact Sequentix didn't do any QC. Either way it's surprisingly lax for a piece of electronic equipment selling for $3k. FYI: Sequentix make the Cirklon sequence...

Re: Moog Grandmother plus eurorack filt env

you could also get a Mother 32. OK the envelope isn't as good as the Grandmother's, since it's ASR instead of ADSR, with a switchable on/off Sustain. BUT you don't have to worry about power or a case, etc. and you obviously get a lot more besides just the envelope. including an LFO and an oscillator...
