Isolating/decoupling nearfield monitors from any hard surface that they may be sitting on certainly is effective, basic physics and even basic common sense. To argue that speaker cabinets are so well designed that they transfer little/no energy to objects that they are in contact with is preposterou...

Re: Replacing Ableton with Synthstrom Deluge or Octatrack MK

2. I've heard that FXs quality on Octatrack MK1 are not that great. Has it been fixed on Octa MK2? How does it compare with Deluge? Well the Deluge FX are nowhere near as good as the Octatrack's, not even in the same ballpark, the kindest thing I could say about them is that they are ok but very ba...

And if you think vintage prices wo...

As for Boringher giving people what Roland won’t, they aren’t - based on the demos so far these do not sound right and they look really tacky, but yeah they have separate outs woohoo. TR-8s or Rytm or Boutiques are a much better bet, and you won’t be embarrased when people see them in your setup :lol:

Hokus Pokus said it best:
“No ordinary mind can understand what I’m talking about”
This was probably one of the first acid tracks I ever heard, and I think it still sounds great today.

Anyone else compare the two first hand? Curious what thoughts are. I still think the Classic pedal is the best sounding of the 3 models, with the DC2 a close second and the original V1 in third place. Do you still hold this opinion? Just curious as you have 3 ammo cans now and looking for another, ...

My wife loves the 303 sound too, more classic acid 80-120bpm stuff than ‘avin it’ 140-170bpm stuff mind which she cannot stand, she also loves the 808, and can easily recognise the sounds despite not ever making electronic music herself. It does seem that certain instruments generate a bit of dislik...

I remember people saying exactly the same thing about the 303 in the early/mid 90's too, yet still lots of great tracks (and lots of shit ones too) have been made using a 303 or clone in the meantime. Personally I don't tire of the sound, but if it does little for you now I guess it is pretty easy t...

I think it is fair to say that the Boutique re-issues get fairly close in sound (with varying levels of success) to the original machines, but importantly they get very close in the user experience, they are very fun to use. As a few have already said in a mix some people won’t know if you are using...

The Roland trig out is 12v and the behringer is probably expecting 5v so attenuation is the only solution.
