Re: anyone go from modular back in the box?

I dont think Ive turned my modular on more than once in the last year or so, coincidentally around the time I did get an MPC Live hah. The MPC just makes things so easy to get going, Im often forgetting the rest of my gear and just using the MPC and my E6400 sampler, next thing I know the track is d...

Re: Akai s6000 in 2020?

I never had a Z8 to compare to the S6000, but the MOC 1000 I use is based on the Z8 engine. What I didn’t like about the S6000 was too many buttons around the screen. The 6 on the MPC and likewise on the Z8 are faster to work with and you end up knowing where to go without looking. Prehaps the 6000...

Re: Akai s6000 in 2020?

Get a SCSI2SD and never worry about storage again! My setup is based around an MPC Live but my main 'instrument' is still my EMU E6400 Ultra. Cant beat that workflow and the weight they bring compared to software synths.. Since mine can read FAT volumes, moving stuff from computer to sampler is as s...

Re: Boss SE 50

Roland/Boss was never really good at heat management in their rack units haha. I have an SE50 and an SE70 in the little rack adapter together and those things get damn hot after a few hours. Never failed though and still used almost every single day. My SDE1000 is another Roland toaster. Those thing...

What, of all of these including the roland srv2000 that was mentioned, is the easiest to use in terms of limited menu diving or access to knobs? I know the DEP5 has knobs on the front panel, but sounds like the SRV is the preferable unit there. Also, re: RV5/7, what is it that makes these still wor...

Re: advice on getting a recording mixer

Soundcraft LX-7! You can pick them up for CHEAP too. I have both a 16 channel LX7 and a newer 24 channel LX7II.. They use a split console design, so everything to the left of the master section has direct outputs, the 8 channels to the right don't.. So if you have a 16 channel, you get 8 direct outs...

Re: Does anyone make a decent analog console anymore?

Pretty happy with the two Soundcraft LX7s I own so far.. Started with the 16 channel LX7 and just upgraded to a 24 channel LX7II a week or so ago. Now I have direct outs on the first 16 channels, the other 8 on the right side of the master section act as my fx returns so I can bus those to the group...

Re: Akai MPC One

I rather guess that a lot of people this MPC is aimed at have a workflow that doesn't require more outputs. For example if you use it entirely standalone with nothing else it's fine. Or if you use it together with a computer and DAW it has all those advanced exporting options. But if you want to us...

Re: question about Nord Modular

The obvious advantage is having a standalone hardware synth with Nord Modular (to a lesser extent with Micro Modular). If that does not matter to you, Reaktor or perhaps VCV Rack would be the route to take for me. Why the "to a lesser extent" with the MM? It's just as standalone as any of the other...
