Re: Behringer VC340

Recorded my first play about. I guess I need to dust off the cobwebs from my piano playing fingers, as they've become dusty from years of mono synth use. This thing sounds awesome with some nice reverb and a bit of wobble: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmJ_7ww9V5E That is awesome. Great playing a...

Re: Second SQ-1 - why do I feel slightly embarrassed?

I like the SQ1. I replaced the knobs a long time ago for transparent ones (900H or whatever they are calle), which made it way nicer to use.

Re: Behringer - Introducing the CAT Synthesizer

I've been eyeing the CAT up since these monos were announced, as it seemed like the most unusual/interesting to me. I held off from taking the plunge for ages, but managed to get one for a good price second hand. My first thoughts are: 1. The knobs and sliders feel way better than expected. The slid...

Re: Behringer 2600

I wish I was excited about the 2600, but it's not one that I have on my radar. I do love the look of it, but suspect there's far too much crossover with my Eurorack to take the plunge.

Re: Polyend Tracker

I put together a track late last night just with some beats my pal madeand samples from Classic FM at 5AM that I got off the radio. I was going to export the stems, but tried out the Performance mode for the first time, and it is *so good*. I was really surprised at how easy and fun it is to use. Ev...

Re: Behringer Wasp Clone incoming

Where exactly is the definitive double trigger fix documented on the net. I was over at Gearslutz and I'm seeing two different mods that were photographed and a third that was just written down... which wouldn't be a problem if they all worked 100%, but then I read someone talking about hearing pop...

Re: How to reduce noise when recording modular on a Zoom?

For convenience, I've been recording Eurorack recently on a Zoom H4n Pro (using batteries to avoid ground loop noise). Usually I take the output from an Intellijel headphone jack and monitor on the Zoom. If I'm just using one case, it generally sounds great, but I've noticed that when using multipl...

I like the PRE modules from Feedback. They are based on the pre-amp circuits of classic mixers.

Re: Behringer VC340

I have some overlap w/ a string synth, two Boss Voice Transformers and an EH Mel9 pedal. But this is different and sel...

Big dirty fat bass

I got a hold of a circuit bent Zoom 1201 today, and found a setting on it that gave a brilliantly disgusting bass sound, so I recorded this track:



Synth is the Behringer Pro-1.

Re: Twisted-Electronics AY3 - 8bit desktop chiptune synth

Bax RMA is horrible. Used to be fine a couple of years ago but then they got big and couldn’t handle the volume. Before, you could call them and someone would walk down to the floor to sort things out for you. Now, you get put through to a call center in Surinam and all they can do is read you a sc...

Re: Twisted-Electronics AY3 - 8bit desktop chiptune synth

I returned the AY3 to BAX in January, and despite them saying the exchange would be processed on the 26th of January, they just stopped replying to me. The UPS tracking shows that the package is in the Netherlands, but awaiting some kind of documentation - and it's been like that for weeks. I eventu...

Re: Behringer 909 announced

Yeah. I haven't noticed any timing issues yet! I got my RD8 for £190 refurbished, which is a crazy price. That sounds like a ludicrously decent deal.. faint memories of a rimshot level (I think?) fix needed on early models.. did you have to carry that out for yourself? Nah, it was fixed via firmware!

Re: Behringer 909 announced

I got an RD8, and it is way better than I expected it to be, so now this is intriguing me. From what you said on the other thread, it looks like the sloppy timekeeping is no longer an issue? That could mean that it's a a lot more tempting to adopt the position for Papa Uli once more, god damnit. Th...

Mine arrived and I haven't run into any issues thus far. It's a really nice device actually. As someone who was ignorant/had little understanding or interest in pursuing the particular 808 'sound', and only really used it via samples before, it is immediately recognisable and a different experience ...

You've convinced me. I'm scoping out one at a bargain price (more of a bargain than RRP), and will proba...

They told me that they are working on being able to replace all of the Wasps with S19xxx serials, but that...
