Re: Behringer VCS3

I wonder how many of these will get flipped fairly quickly when buyers realise there's no "Press here for Pink Floyd/Brian Eno/Tangerine Dream" button.

Re: Best (cheap) fx for crunchy drums? (Stop me buying a Boum)

I'm surprised no one has mentioned old guitar multieffects pedals. Not always the easiest to tweak live, it depends on the model. But you can find them dirt cheap.

Re: Sheesh....

Yeah, in the end if the prices are too high stuff won't sell. And if you're buying high price vintage gear you'd better know the market and the equipment, or you will end up paying more than you should, or at worst get ripped off.

Re: Yamaha FVX-1, old 8OP FM-Synth

I'm pretty sure there's other stuff like this most of us don't know about because it was marketed to organ players, and not synth players and other pop/rock/electronic music makers. There was a brief period when Wersi was trying to market stuff in the US with ads in Keyboard Magazine, but it musn't ...

Re: Help understanding connections (BC-9 mixer)

+48 V is for phantom power of condenser microphones. The jack above the XLRs is probably for a separate +48 V power supply.

Re: FM synthesis - Essential non-pop records

Wayne Horvitz was a DX7 user back in the late '80s.



If I'm not mistaken his stuff on Zorn's Naked City albums was DX7 and Akai sampler.

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.

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