Re: Dave Smith hint of a new synth coming up in August

I own an OB6 Glad I'll never have the Prophet-5 vs. Prophet-6 dilemma :lol: Nooo you want that Prophet 10 to accompany the OB6 No indeed! I meant, if one already owned a P6 (having debated between P6 and OB6 as many do) you might be torn about whether to ever buy a P5 given you already had a P6. I'...

If they get the price right it reckon a TR6s is a far more attractive proposition than the RD6. That said it's so cheap you might as well get both :lol:

Re: How long before your brain forgets a sound ?

I decided to explore the music of Stockhausen once and bought some CDs (it was a while ago). I put one on and settled down to listen. Soft ambient white noise. This is interesting, I thought. Look at me! So sophisticated, listening to Stockhausen. So clever how he manipulates the seeming randomness ...

Some folks seem to remember how analog gear they used in the 80s sound well enough to be able to claim that modern clones sound nothing like the original. So, 40 years at least?

Re: Tasty Chips Electronics GR-1

I'm curious but maybe I'm missing something. Isn't a dedicated harware granular machine suppose to have an audio in so you can record directly sounds and process them? Isn't this the main reason you would like to have this in hardware and not as a plugin? Just being able to play with your gear and ...

Will NI "plus" the Komplete Kontrol S88 keyboard?

Hello I'm quite attracted to the NI eco-system and the Komplete Kontrol S88 in particular but as a piano player I absolutely don't want to have to always turn on a computer just to get a piano sound and I need that sound ready in seconds. I seriously considered a Kronos back when they came out but t...

Re: Para / Poly synth to compliment Euro set up...OB6, Pro 3, P12 experience?

OB6 has no CV/gate but lots of polys don't. It's got sequence start input so that should interface with the Euro. It of course has MIDI.

It's also about to gain MPE support which is pretty cool. See Pym's post. Pym is a Sequential engineer.

Re: Tasty Chips Electronics GR-1

Kind of a quiet thread of an interesting looking piece of gear. Either you guys are too busy using it to post or this hasn't reached many people yet. Yeah I've been thinking the same. Maybe people just aren't that sold on granular or granular is a bit niche? Or those that are prefer software? Where...
