Re: Volca Sample V2

Moog Audio says it will be $209.99 Canadian. A Digitakt is $1099. A Model Samples is a better comparison, but even that is another 200 bucks new.

Jensen Interceptor might fall into this category. Known for electro but has also done some really great 4/4 techno.
Heh, another name that's been used more than once.

Re: What electronic instruments were recorded on ZZ Top's Eliminator

You can find more details if you search for "Terry Manning Eliminator" on Google. But offhand the setup was an Oberheim DMX, often triggering samples from a AMS digital delay, a Moog Source, Memorymoog(probably a Plus, since Manning mentions using its sequencer), and a Yamaha DX9. The fact it's a dr...

Canadian Heads Up: Volca Modular Cheap at L&M.

I was checking out the Long and McQuade website tonight trying to find their Monster Days flyer. I did stumble across the fact that the Volca Modular is currently on sale. It's listed at 159 bucks, 120 bucks off the regular price. I wonder if they didn't buy a bunch of these, but they're not selling.

Re: What new booty did you buy?

There's something very off brand '80s looking about that thing. For example the sliders and markings look like something from a Realistic product.

Re: dated contemporary music that sounds like a cliche or fetish

The way to get around that is to shelve everything strictly alphabetically, and ignore genre. Unfortunately a lot of people would get upset at Arvo Part and Dolly Parton being in the same bin.

Re: dated contemporary music that sounds like a cliche or fetish

There's lots of music these days going for a retro '80s vibe, often classified as synthwave.

Re: albums/recordings made with buchla?

Canadian free improv group CCMC's albums CCMC - Volume 4 - Free Soap and Without a Song both include Buchla equipment of some sort. Circa 1980 photos show what I'm guessing is a Buchla Touche. Good luck finding copies, as they apparently never made it to CD.

The original Chowning FM patents have expired, and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the Yamaha ones have as well. Besides, Korg and Yamaha seem to have a friendly relationship.

Re: Volca at NAMM 2020

A Volca M1 perhaps? If they could actually make it with more than 3 note polyphony it would make an interesting companion to the Roland D05.
