Re: Analog Synths with midi cc over parameters

I have them booth and very pleased with them. Great MIDI implementation as well. The factory presets don’t make them justice, at least not to me - they sound much better than that.

The Matriarch was on my next to buy list, but then came the ARP 2600 FS...

Re: Analog Synths with midi cc over parameters

With risk to misunderstand your request; A modular with CV control is just what you describe (except CV instead of MIDI protocol). I'm definitely covered there, I've got over 500hp in eurorack plus that wacky moog/vcvrack modular I posted a picture of above :hyper: That’s what I thought could be th...

Re: Benefits of recording to reel to reel

I had in mind to do the same. Bought a Studer A810, a Revox PR-99 and a Revox B-77 and had great plans to use them for tape saturation. I used them for a period to listening to music (great sound) but sadly didn’t use them for the purpose I bought them - it was more continent to use the UAD tape plu...

Re: Yamaha QX3. Funk or junk?

I had QX3 as well as QX1, mainly with the purpose of companion to my TX816. Great sequencers but I don’t miss them too much - Yamaha’s menu diving isn’t that creative. To me the MMT-8 (also had one before) is the opposite - creative and easy, 8 dedicated tracks with mute buttons. I would go for the ...

Re: Motu M4 vs SSL 2+

Re: Yamaha DX5 midi velocity

The first DX7 had the velocity limit of 100. Later on it was increased to 127, so there are DX7 (mk1) with 100 as well as 127. I’m pretty sure the Gray Matter Response E! card will fix the velocity limit if you’ll find one AND IF it works with DX5 (not sure). The DX5 is closer to DX1 than to DX7. Th...

Re: Behringer 2600

If they had to use a digital reverb, how about a DSP running a convolution reverb using impulses with the original 2600 spring reverb, and a push button to cycle through some other spring reverbs, and a few classic plate reverbs while they were at it? Sounds costly to develop, at least in Behringer...

Re: Behringer 2600

Someone at Behringer needs to spend some time on the digital reverb. As soon as it gets involved, you might as well be playing a soft synth. I agree, the reverb sounded more like the signal was processed by a spring roll than a spring reverb. Is the size of the built to small to fit a reverb tank? ...

Regardless what the label or the purists says (I’m a purist but openminded... if I had a good day, and I had today) it sounds awesome in my ears and looks gorgeous, a great synth on its own. It doesn't make me cancel my Arp 2600 FS order, but wow, this little baby touch my analog soul.

Was reading elsewhere that someone in Japan says they have now picked up their pre-ordered Korg 2600.

If true, we may start to see some of them landing worldwide soon? :party:
If it’s true an amount of new Youtube clips from Japan containing the Arp 2600FS will pop up I guess.
