Re: Softube Model 72 : An exciting model of the Minimoog

I don't have the Modular so I didn't try that version, but I like the basic Minimoog demo - the filter sounds smoother than Synapse Legend (in a good way) and the low end is less prone to going too far.

But... I own Legend and a Behringer D now, so it's a hard sell even at the intro price.

Re: Eventide's Blackhole Pedal

For the relatively narrow difference in price - I still don't see the logic. Space and big format Strymon pedals are roughly about the same size. Having immediate access to low and high EQ, mix and pitch/modulation (depending on the model being used) are as intuitive as it gets. And power is 9V 500...

Nothing at all going on in that R&D department anymore, eh? Why anyone wouldn't just save for a used Space is beyond me. It's this... and SO MUCH MORE.

Re: Eventide's Blackhole Pedal

All those others are in competition with Eventide! (I kid... kind of.) I can't imagine just using Blackhole myself, the hall, room, reverse algorithms are all so good on Space. This, however, makes more sense for a lot of people - takes up less room on a pedalboard, can run on pretty much any power ...

Re: Interface suggestions?

A 16 or 24 track mixer/interface might be a good option here - Tascam Model 16/24, Soundcraft MTK 22, Allen & Heath has a couple of options. As interfaces none of them are mindblowing in terms of latency as far as I can tell but if you're mostly using the computer as a tape machine that may be fine.

Re: What new booty did you buy?

Changing my mom's Internet over to fiber got me a $200 gift card from AT&T... so I got a Behringer Pro-1. I have a rotating cast of desktop synths that are set up permanently (everything else has to be moved over to my computer and cables run) for quick jams so this will join in the fun

'Experimental' (or at least outside the norm) songs making use of the Mellotron?

I love the idea of the Mellotron, and enjoy using the GForce emulation, but aside from the Beatles and a couple of Tom Waits songs I struggle to think of music I enjoy made with a 'tron. Threads on them usually end up focused on '70s prog and rock that bores me. So... experimental or out there Mello...

Re: Tascam Model 12,16,24 (all in one thread)

Trying to decide between the 12 and 16 - the 16 is noticeably bigger from what I can tell, but they sell rack ears and I'm thinking I could mount it on a rolling cart and store cables underneath.

Re: Help me choose a pedal

My suggestion - Strymon Volante. The spring reverb is excellent on it and you've got a lot of delay power (all tape or drum centered algorithms, but you can make them clean/dirty/etc.).

Re: Do I need a reamp and a DI box?

Just watching the levels (coming from either the synth or the mixer) into most pedals works fine without reamping on the way into them.

Many slightly higher end delays/reverbs will let you set them for line level - the Strymons, Merises, Eventides, etc..

Re: Headphones 2019 ugh “monitor quality” LOL

Closed-back headphones irritate something tinnitus-like in my right ear (pressure?) so I stick to my AKG K702 and ordered some Sennheiser HD58x phones when I'm forced into using them.

Re: What should I buy next?

What's your budget? The upcoming Isla S2400 (modern SP1200 sort of) could be very Paul's Boutique/cut-up friendly.

The MC707 from Roland is another box that you could chop up samples on and loop your other gear.

The modern MPCs are very capable but overly complicated for me.

I don't know what charity has to do with it. The point is that no for-profit entity (and certainly no large for-profit entity) is clean of corruption and exploitation.

Re: Mellotron options

M-Tron Pro is great, bought all the libraries on sale. Adds the ability to reverse samples, which I don't think any of the hardware can do. I'd love one of the M4000 versions, but since they're sample players like the M-Tron Pro and I'm not worried about performing live with it, hard to justify $140...

They apparently have a bunch of teams working on different projects - limiting the projects wouldn't improve things much, I doubt 40 engineers working on one synth would be more efficient (or develop a better low budget product) than 4 engineers working on 10 synths. Synths and samplers without bugs...
