Re: Games as time capsules

Carmageddon TDR2000 might be an otherwise mediocre game, but the Utah Saints soundtrack bops, and is certainly a product of its time.

Re: Thomann / the sssnake stackcable clones

Only annoyance is that they arrived individually packed, each with a plastic bag with paper holder and a plastic tie. Not only is that not very eco-friendly, it's also a bit more effort to unpack than I'd have liked, especially if you're looking to buy many of these. Not sure why they aren't just s...

How much did they lose, could be that they claimed tax deductions on the purchase and did some finagling, it's near the end of the fiscal year somewhere.

Re: replacement for the Aries Reverb ? ( multi-Delay line based Reverbs)

MTurboReverb probably fits the bill, assuming you really know what you're doing. It allows you to basically describe the reverberation algorithm you want as a string file and control every part of it, should you so desire.

It takes 7 bits to have up to 128 values, to do the decimal places. 9+7 = 16, so 16 bits to store the tempo.

I have an old Hohner accordion. Like acoustic guitars, there is something liberating in being able to just play - without plugging anything in. Maybe someone could develop an acoustic synth.

Re: Alternative to Waldorf Streichfett?

Any cheap analog modelling synth with chorus/phaser should get in the ballpark. Following video has pretty decent synth strings, at around 9 min. You could patch these up yourself, or just buy the preset pack he's selling and I think you'll still come short of the $600 budget by like $150. https://y...

Lack of MPE support would've likely made me switch away from Ableton, and definitely would've stopped me from updating.

Re: Emptyset's feedback loop techniques

Another one, this one I'm quite happy with. Some things learned: 1. Envelope followers on whatever parameters are good. Phaser frq, filter cutoffs, drive amount. This gives the sound a lot of movement. Phasers, Choruses, Flangers, and 50% wet Frequency shifters help for sustained notes, but short no...

I am curious if this number reflects all the Music Tribe brands, or just Behringer? I would think with TC Electronic, Midas, and the rest that the number would be a bit higher.

Quick aside: the continuing characterisation of Music Tribe/Behringer as an underdog/Robin Hood when its significantly bigger than the market value of Roland, Korg and Moog combined is bizarre but then many musicians don't seem to be financially savvy. Odd that they think that's a good thing. Yes, ...

Re: *** Vintage dealers taking the piss on used market ***

Now Roland has a proud history of contributing outstanding synths, but they turn their back on the elegant cost effective machines leaving lots of room for someone to step in. I would argue that Roland is, in fact, serving the low-end market pretty decently with their numerous digital synthesizers....

Not my proudest work, but basically: Audio Input channel (No FX, a synth that makes sine waves, low frequencies) goes into 3 parallel FX chains with a bunch of distortion and short delays and whatever on them.

3.

most of the best music made by synths within the Funk/Rock genre is all about the keyboard playability.. get something with a nice keyboard, add pedals... practice.... This, 150%.
