It is useful, thank you. I bought it second hand and never saw a user manual. It was a trade swap for my very first synth, an ARP Axxe. I believe the Internet was in its infancy back then. Imagine. This has gone remarkably smoothly. I installed a CR2330 three-volt lithium battery and initialised the...

EMU Classic Keys restore

I searched on here but no luck. Eight years after setting it aside I am replacing the battery in my Classic Keys module in the hope of getting it working again. Does anyone know where the original sounds (or Vintage Keys, I'm not bothered) can be downloaded? Also an idiot's guide to the restoring pr...

Does anyone know the capacity of the micro card provided? I plan to reuse it for my own samples but some are about four minutes long.

Understood. Thanks Bill. This is another example of my terrible resentment at having to learn a new thing.

Anyone else experiencing some odd combination that disables the second LPG? Out of the box it appeared nonfunctional but some random patching woke it up eventually. Now a few days later it has gone dead again. I'm sure there is a particular signal path that will restore it. Just need to find it.

These two tracks both featuring Pete Judge from Get The Blessing. Freak-out free jazz and a Gil Mele-inspired homage to The Andromeda Strain.

I like my Mysteron. Here's an example of two sequences running together. (In the outro, although it's only two minutes long)
Production note, for tedious reasons all these parts were hand-synced. Ridiculous.

Please test my theory that one track from the second session, 9-ChrO is actually a profoundly mangled rendering of Joan Jett's I Love Rock And Roll.

Arturia Easel into iPad?

Here's a probably dumb question.
Can I download the Arturia Buchla Easel V onto my iPad simply as a very expensive app? (No DAW, etc.)

Some thoughts after a few days tinkering. It is an undeniably gorgeous object but it's also fiddly as fuck. I'm still pretty mystified by most of the headers on the left hand side, nor have I hit upon the magic combination that makes any of the pots around the sequencer function. Is anyone really fl...

So I paid my 70 pounds import tax (ouch) and assembled it today, successfully jumpered the three boards and it all lights up and..nothing. Is it meant to make sounds right out of the box when touched? Cranked, I can hear a comforting hum of electricity but nothing else. Anyone else finding the user ...
