Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

Some people always want to have the last word on every topic. It's a manifestation of deep-seated insecurity.

I haven't seen any instances of 'shaming' for buying Behringer products. If an annonymous internet poster perceives such shame then they really should seek professional help.

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

BTW, whats up with the non polyphonic Poly D? (dang that missleading name seem to bother me. Poly tonic is just as valid as poly phonic . Or even simply poly by itself meaning many. Many D's is a perfectly appropriate name. Since the PolyD is what we've come to understand as Paraphonic, quite a num...

Re: Tempest vs. RYTM...shoot!

The biggest difference between the two IMO is related to sound design. Tempest requires a large investment of time just to learn how to synthesize basic drum sounds, whereas Rytm provides the machines which give you a more limited number of parameters, though they can sound great with a little effor...

Re: Behringer: practices, ethics, morals and legitimacy.

Cheap products come with hidden costs. In the race to the bottom, everybody loses. Expensive stuff doesn't last either. Your iphones or other smartphones, 4K TV's etc are only built to last 4 years maximum, why, because manufacturers always want you to progress to the lastest model everytime. So mo...

Re: Roland SH32

SH32 is a quirky secret weapon masquerading as a piece of hospital equipment. My sofa box, I love it. Sure, yes, it's an older VA with sampled waveforms but there a lot of interesting wave variations. I think there are 11 noise types, which make perfect fodder for anything from ambient to industrial...

Re: Sequential Pro 3

Pro-2 is, hands-down, my favourite synthesizer. I have it paired with a 0-coast, which makes a really fantastic combo. I rarely use the sequencer, just play it as a mono, through a nice reverb, which keeps me endlessly entertained. I don't see the Pro-3 as a replacement. Possibly complimentary, thou...

Re: Makenoise 0-Coast or Mother32 or Minilogue XD module or ???

I have bot the the M32 and the 0-coast and TBH, for songwriting purposes, both are limiting when used alone. Much more possibilities when integrated with other gear. I personally prefer the 0-coast to the M32, but I have it paired-up with a DSI Pro-2, which makes things a lot more interesting and fl...

Roland Gaia SH-01. Not too cheap, but can be find second hand for $250-$500. I got one last year for $235. It's not the nicest or warmest sounding VA out there, but it's capable of some interesting sounds. My first "VA" was an Akai S2800 sampler, in which I loaded simple waveforms and used it as a ...

I got a Digitone last week and I love it. Most fun and creativity from a box in a long time. I've paired it with a Rytm for good times jamming in the kitchen.

Complaints about omissions are valid, and I support their inclusion, but the glass is definitely more than half full IMO.
