Thanks weinglas, sounds very similar to Phenol with that super clean high end sizzle. That drink poor made me nervous!

4u Kilpatrick banana systems

Curious if anyone has any experience with these systems? Style and form factor looks great, just curious about the sound and how well it works as a complete system. Looking for something deep for drone and tonal generation. My only experience with Kilpatrick stuff was a Phenol and it had a very prec...

Re: Arturia MiniBrute 2S: Does it need calibration?

So about 7 cents variance across 5 octaves? Sounds pretty good to me. How long was it on when you tested it? Try leaving it on for an hour and re-check.

Re: Deckards Dream General Build Thread

Hi, I'm new to this forum so I hope I do this right. I did search the forum and this thread for the part number. I'm currently building my Deckard's Dream v1. I have some trouble determining if I have the orientation right of my STMPS2171MTR on the output PCB. I attached a picture. http://www.synth...

Re: Elektron Digitone

Not sure but to rule some things out try going to settings/midi config/port config and scroll to the bottom. Uncheck the box that says "receive cc/nrpn"

If that lets you play it without issue you might need to configure what the seaboard is putting out somehow.

The most recent comments are disturbing, just some of the many reasons I never pre-order anything. Not in stock? No order. Really sorry for those who were told one thing and are now being disappointed.

Re: New Elektron Teaser

I also hope they stick with the digitakt/digitone format, love the screen and encoders as well. Even if they bumped the case size back up to the mk1 format but used the digi screen, encoders, and buttons i'd be pumped.

Re: How many Fizmo's on Muff's?

I always thought these looked cool, and its interesting its the only Ensoniq synth that seems to command a real value second hand. Albeit an inflated value no less! Was there a low number of them produced?

Re: new Synthi inspired machine coming from Erica Synths

Can you imagine living back in the late 60's and thinking "wow, in 2020 there will be so many synthesizers available that people will have lost all interest in the sound and making music with them. All that will matter is how it got here"

I can't recommend the ESQ-1 enough, I just adore its dirty lofi digital sound. If it had HP and BP filter modes I could get away with it as my only poly.

Re: Downfalls/cons of Octatrack?

I agree the main miss on the OT for people is when they try to use it as a DAW replacement. The second miss is expecting to understand and utilize every little thing its capable of. It helps to know going in what you actually want to use it for, and then just focus on that. Its ok to not use 90% of ...

Re: Drum machine recommendations for OT

If you are comfy with elektron work flow I think any basic drum machine option is going to seem too limited. If you are leaning towards a MD i'd hold out for that, but really adding another elektron machine of any kind would be fantastic for drums.

Re: MS2600NG, the German 2600

I'd love to see a Russian take on the arp 2600. Cold war panel design with Polivoks mixer and filter section, and a digital shortwave radio section in place of noise. Maybe some interesting low res digital digital oscillators, something like a mix of old waldorf wavetables plus an ESQ-1. :omg:

Re: Desktop Prophet 12 coming

I thought the UI looked pretty good as well. I also really like the ESQ-1 UI, and love the Elektron UI/work flow so I guess preferences really do vary a lot. I'm at the point where I will take 6-8 knobs/encoders and a clean page system over knob per function any day.
