I have the old Korg DVP MIDI controlled rack which doesn’t sound bad but I wish it would give you different waveforms or at least an external input. I have one of those. I rarely use it but when I do I use it in the vocal synth mode - it sounds vaguely like the Logan Vocalist. I use the solo female...

Too late for Halloween?

As I've just turned 60 I decided to make some of my albums now a free download. First up, "Creeping Shadows" from 2017. With titles like "Brood Chamber" "Into the Zone", "Quatermass & the Creeping Shadows" it's a set of dark ambient tracks. Apart from "Brood Chamber" most of the music was realized o...

chamomileshark, a to me very pleasing and giving way to experiment with Drums and more so "electronic Percussives" is to just setup *super simple* beats and then create the rest over using FX. Mainly Delays. A nifty Delay on the master, or delays per sound, or anything inbetween. i more and more ex...

ok, I just tried plugging in to the inputs on the front with the jacks. At a tiny bit above the level I get continuous green lights it distorts. I thought I'd try a slightly different level from the synth, but before I changed anything and simply hit play on the synths sequencer it just went crazy a...

hi, good suggestion. I turned off the mixer and computer, sent the line out of the synth into the 6i6 and then monitored via the headphone jack. Anything above 9 o'clock on the OB6 volume it distorts. It seems to have a very short travel to go from too quiet to distortion. I'll see later whether one...

hi, thanks for the reply. I'm not sure how to do that? I'm not very confident with these things. I think I might have found a way to simplify this. I've connected the synth directly to the Scarlett 6i6 line in 3&4 and so have taken the analogue mixer largely out of the equation ( I think). So I'm at...

Distortion a sign of interface failure?

hi, I've got an e-mail into Focusrite re my 1st generation Scarlett 6i6 (see below) but have just discovered the problem I was originally trying to sort is now back. I have my OB 6 going into a Soundcraft signature 12 line in. The master out goes to my 6i6, the aux out goes to my monitors. I've noti...

I feel a bit bad that I'd previously got the CMI and Synclavier. I know the Synclavier is probably ok given Cameron's involvement. Less sure about the CMI.

I've provided some simple audio demos of the VCS3 on the KvR forum as most people don't have access to one. Aside from the whole thing of their dealings with Robin, I think if you are going to trade on the cache of an icon they could have done a better job. SIAC (Reaktor ensemble) sounds to me more ...

Now out https://www.arturia.com/products/analog-classics/synthi-v/overview Just watched the videos and listened to the sound demos and I have to say it has absolutely nailed the sound of an Arturia software synth. Listened to the Mellotron and that sounds nothing like any Mellotron I've heard either...

thanks Nostalgia I'll have a look at that. I'm sending the DSI OB-6 going into the 7/8 channel. I have turned the pot up - maybe I just need to turn it up further.

Plugging synths into Mic input of Soundcraft Signature 12

hi, I've been struggling a getting a decent level out of some of my synths - particularly the OB-6 module (but also some of the others). I'm wondering if I'm careful and keep the volume levels on the synths low if I can plug them into the Mic inputs and use my Soundcraft Signature 12 pre-amps do the...

thanks for the replies - I should have clarified (and I now have done in the OP) that I'm doing ambient, downtempo stuff and may add IDM to that. So that's more electronic drums than acoustic. Maybe more minimal too. Since posting I went through some loops I had from Computer Music / Future Music pl...

using drum loops?

After a couple of years of incorporating drums in my music I gave up. That was nearly 40 years ago. I went beatless because basically all my drum tracks sounded crap. I'm now wondering about using MIDI or audio drum loops. Does anyone else here do this? Do you use them as they are, or do you use the...

Maybe we can drop the political economics and stick to the original subject?

The original subject has nothing to do with producing cheap hardware versions of existing products. It has nothing to do with the purchasing power (or lack of) of potential customers.
