$1200 (1600 cdn) for that one you linked looks really nice. I've seen so many for $1600 usd, I thought that was the price. I'd be very tempted for a clean 600 at these prices. Not a P5 but a nice analog poly still.

The Analog Keys is a terrific controller for any old (or new) CV synth My other favorite controller for the VCS3 is a Haken Continuum with the CVC box. I'm going to need to look into both of these. Are you scaling the pitch cv on these devices instead of attenuating on the VCS3? Does it feel repeat...

Inside the Jones plug are the 100k resistors in series with the CV input channels needed to prevent input amp saturation and a diode or transistor for the gate input. Thanks for the info! This sounds similar to Robin's recommendation for cv cables, and possibly the diode on the gate input is the ga...

The synth is amazing. I had one in the 1990's and get nostalgic for it often. The crossmod is very cool. If it was fully functional shape, $1100 would be a pretty low price, or maybe fair for its condition. But . . . I'd wonder about other damage to the front panel pcb where the switches are broken....

Some years back there was a cool blind test someone constructed of a few 5U oscillators, including the equivalent Macbeth of this series. The sound clips do not appear to be up anymore, and I barely recall the details, but I recall the Macbeth feeling similar but somewhat 'imprecise' compared to the...

Thanks to the OP and papz for the link. I never knew such a cable existed! :hail: There was an old Graham Hinton post on this topic cautioning against using the Jones plug for purposes like these, which I quoted below. Does anyone know if the Kenton cable has the 'correct circuitry' he suggests it ...

Yes, I see you point about transport. Perhaps two cases with 19” rack widths would be more reasonable for me. That way I could start with one case and expand when the time comes. Having a 311c + 3U front section is a great idea. Second this. A matching set of custom cases will look awesome together...

Dunno, some of these: - No effects. I have that covered via hardware and software. - No controllers. Between a DAW, audio interface, MIDI keyboards, USB slider/knob banks, footswitches, and a Ciat Lonbarde Tetrax Organ (pressure sensitive inputs), I have that covered. - No sequencers in the first ph...

I just figured with the Slim Phatty I would get all of those modules in one unit plus I could get that Moog sound , patch memory , and they can be poly-chained together to play chords . The set up you propose has some advantages but also some limitations. Mainly, while the Slim Phatty is cheap, int...
