Re: 208c noise?

I think Pagoda is saying he's actually got buzzing / vibrational noise just coming from the unit itself - not through speakers / headphones ? A bit like old power amplifiers ( pre class D etc ) where the thing just sits and hums, vibrating ! If so, that can't be right in something like a synth, sure...

Re: Prophet 5 is back....

exactly - that's the spirit ! Last year was my 50th year - hence despite feeling incredibly nervous about parting with that much cash on a single purchase, I jumped on the KARP2600 last January. And I don't regret a penny of it .... Like you say, you only live once.... :sb:

Re: Buchla Easel Command Module 208C

^ as I eagerly await my new Easel Command this is heartening advice. My plan is to start using the unit totally alone for a while...then I'll probably try hooking up my Beatstep Pro. In fact if that plays nicely I'm quite interested in the USB Host port option for the Command to streamline that set-...

Re: Hands On (Analog) Sequencers in the year AD 2021

TBH, I found the GRP boring after a while. It was very fast and easy to get a sequence going and you can have variations in direction, etc, but when I wanted to do more like change the starting step or length, it was always a manual operation and I couldn't 'sequence the sequencer' to introduce cha...

yeah - I'm looking forward to it. I needed to break out of the standard routine - particularly when it comes to playing live - so I'm guessing this slightly scary rush to the cliff-edge might be the thing to make me think differently.

Well I just cracked... KMR here in the UK have a Black Friday offer on - 10% discount.... I'd been entertainging the idea of an Easel Command for ages..so the best part of a £300 saving tipped me over the edge. Naturally they don't have any in stock... ;) But apparaently they're expecting units in t...

Re: KARP 2600 vs. TTSH, redux

If you've managed to snag ( finally ! ) a KARP 2600 FS then quit worrying, basically. I got mine back in June. It's wonderful - easily the best synth I've ever owned. Beautiful & new & shiny but just oozing with that vintage mojo sonically. The 3620 keyboard is also fantastic. As a complete system i...

Re: New gear from Moog, what would you like to see happen.?

I've been thinking for a while that Moog should do a 'Mothers lIttle helper' type unit, aimed at being racked up in a 2, 3 or 4 tier Moog system as a complement to M-32s, DFAMs, Subharmonicons etc... Lots of us have gone down the Eurorack route to do this, so I think a decent product from Moog could...

Re: Korg 2600 Mini

I think because “Dream synth” means something you need no justification for, something you’d save and sell off for. Something you might even clear a shelf for.
yeah - I think that's a fair point... I mean, that's exactly what I did with the 2600 FS : I just had to get one.

I'm guessing that it was his leaving that ended that orginal line of Modal synths ? they seem to have changed as a firm at that point. I thin...
