I personally find there's merits to all three setups that are out there (Windows, Mac, and *nix).

To the OP, I hope the issue is easily resolved without any loss.

I really don't see why people hate iTunes - except in the case where they use on a PC. The only thing which annoys me about itunes is not being able to have record label in the metadata. Part of the reason I don't quite like it is there's too much going on in the blasted program. I just want it to ...

I generally use cdEX ( http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/ )for ripping cds. Works fairly well and rather quickly, and then I play back using WinAMP 5 (in classic v.2 mode). As for mobile playback, I tend to use a Creative Labs 8GB Zen V+ (the second version that didn't have the fm tuner). Never really d...

I've had shipments from Birmingham UK (HTFR to be precise) that have taken all of a week.... Or a day if I pony up the extra $20 CAD for next day ^_^

Last time I ordered I think it was around $16 CAD or so on a $198 CAD order, $10 CAD of that being a FedEx service charge.

I'm curious as to why you would come to this assumption. You may be leaving out companies with massive R&D teams. Teams which only Research and Develop. Pharmaceutical companies, most audio manufacturers, pretty much anything. Lots of things are programmed into the cost of a module: price of servic...

I highly doubt there are any viable business models out there where any research and development costs are included within the cost of the module. Like others have said, you'd more than likely wind up going out of business "absorbing" such costs yourself and not passing (a portion) of such in each p...

no - the animal panel won't hurt, except in a good way. If you're starting with one panel, I'd say that it's the way to go, but you could also choose a couple of m-class modules also.I think that's been suggested as an alternative. the animal is pretty well thought out, though... out of curiosity -...

Serge is just plain damn sexy in general. And that's the thing - ultimately the only thing you will be displeased about, I think, is if you are limiting your total panels to 4 or so - whether you made the best choices. And ultimately also - this is a personal decision which will rely more on how yo...

you won't get long sequences from the sequencer panel. I much prefer it, but I don't generally use long sequences. Of course, you can get longer 'virtual' sequences by mixing 2 together, or making liberal use of reset, up/down modulation, step select on the 4 step sequencer, etc. The sequencer pane...

The thing is that regardless of the specific first purchase you make, I think that you'll be very pleased. And it's certainly true - there is really no very compelling reason per se to go with a shop panel over the m-class stuff. I chose that route myself because the m-class stuff is pretty recent,...

I'm a huge fan of the Animal. It really has the nuts and bolts of all things Serge. Yes, it doesn't have the DUSG but the DTG is essentially that. And I feel that a system with DTGs isn't missing half of the colors in the Crayola box because it has a few less jacks. The Animal was my first panel an...

I'm really glad that I have the vostok as opposed to the new one (forget the Russian name) - the patch panel on the vostok is really flexible I think, and this new one doesn't have it but has some other stuff instead that (to my mind) makes it less flexible overall. Tereshkova would be the alternat...

the animoo adds a ring mod to the animal. The blue voice has the ring mod... I'd really recommend that if you tend to expand the system, and you have the $ now - go for one of the voice panels and one of the control panels. I wouldn't say that even though the 'red' is more geared towards tonal musi...

The quickest description of traditional vs experimental is that traditional would be more oriented towards tonal music (sequencing, playing notes, melody, etc.) where experimental focuses more on timbre and texture. Blue voice gives you more modulation options, and more sound sources, red seems to ...

The Animal is designed to be a "complete" synthesizer with a selection of both audio and control modules. It works well as a standalone, triggering itself or whatever, or controlled by an external source. Hmmm... So essentially, to paraphrase, it would seem that selecting one of the voice options w...
