Re: Novation Circuit Rhythm Sampler

Given the comments above, I guess I will get off my lazy and dig the E4 out of the closet. The Force is a bit space-taking for my setup, but the E4, as a rack box can sit under the desk and do what I want. Akai used to make an MP16, 16 pads with a decent amount of time overall.

Re: Novation Circuit Rhythm Sampler

I must say this idea that all samplers must be purpose-built with drum beats in mind is tiresome. That said, I'm no fan of the sampler as a "record your synth sound, then ditch the synth" paradigm either. I'd like to see samplers with operating systems that easily allow one to set up multi-sample "k...

Kodamo, Bitmasker, the pocket synth

No price yet, but looks like a LOT of fun in a very compact and capable piece of kit. Also, previously seen, the delectable keyboard Essence FM. (300 analog filters for 300 FM voices.) The Essence is awesome ; this looks equally so, and depending on the price, might sell like hotcakes. I'm hoping $3...

Re: Buchla Easel Command Module 208C

I am new to Buchla (other than the OB-MX, which doesn't really count), and have an idea that the Easel Command Module or the BEMI Music Easel might fit perfectly with my workflow (improvised synths & sequencers, mildly synchronized). I'm definitely not a modular fellow, thus Easel. The BEMI suitcase...

Anyone having experience with modding synth to desktop modules? Korg has been pretty good about desktopifying their recent keyboards.
