nail hit on head, news at 11! I need moar caffeine…


#4354

Do you think any of us are that far from it?


#4355

not anymore, she would give a great hug man.


#4356

my S2400 just arrived and I am so fucking happy <3 time to play!


#4357

so the case. top shelf! I did not expect this at all and and expected just this generic thing and was so surprised it is branded and fits it well. would purchase again


#4358

That’s really cool. After you and canecreek started talking about them and put it on my radar I got to looking at them… if I had they cash and thought I’d get one by the next century, I’d go for it. The SP-1200 is kinda off a lot of people’s radars but with was big in the Chicago House scene when it came out, as well as Hip Hop.

They even make a big deal out of it in the Wu-Tang: An American Saga show on Hulu.

I had a day off in a hotel room, w my ableton setup and UAD Apollo. Usual stuff BUT for reasons I had a Dave smith Prophet 6 in room as well that belongs to the band.

Holy cow it’s an inspiration machine. I’m trying to figure out how best to get one of my own.


#4360

I’ll have to listen at home as I’ve not got headphones with me but if I ever bought an analogue poly it would be one of the prophet remakes.

I’ve got the DSI P6 filter on the SP-16 and love it. For DJ tricks I still prefer the A&H Zone analog filter, but the P6 LPF + Drive really brings shit to life in a not overboard but not too subtle way.

Also, reminds me, I owe you and @RFJ a some better Tone Beast demos as I fucked up the other ones.

edit: I’ve also thought about using an old laptop dedicated to just U-he Repro and getting this controller: https://sound-force.nl/?page_id=2775 but at the end of the day I feel like I’ll spend a few hundred dollars and not be happy.


#4361

Oh wow, there’s a Roland D2 on gumtree, lol


#4362

barf…


#4363

For those who might be interested, this is my hardware synth YT channel:


#4364

Never heard of this company until today:

https://sonicware.jp/

I guess the Bass&Beats is their newest offering–wavetable groovebox with PCM percussion. But its only one mono synth track (I guess you can’t turn your nose up at that too much for only $199). The XFM 4 track FM groovebox looks more interesting to me; I was dissapointed that the Model:Cycles is mostly percussion oriented.


#4365

Also…shit…looking at the U-he Repro dedicated MIDI controller now has me thinking why not just buy the Behringer Pro-1 : ( : ( : ( the actual synth is cheaper.


#4366

I still have yet to really dive in to the Behringer Pro~1 but so far it sounds tits.


#4367

I was about to pre-order the xfm then decided against it. But this one seems interesting, ignoring the drums, I wouldn’t mind 1 channel of wavetable and sequencer


#4368

The price is in Volca territory so I can’t get to complain-y. I would want to now more about workflow, menu diving, how much control you get over making patches. The promo video is useless (no surprise there I guess). I’m very interested in having a hardware wavetable synth at some point.

@Subtronik I’m sure I’d be happy with the sound, but always good to get a referral from an IDMf gear head. I’ve got both an RD-8 and TD-3 and they both sound great. No complaints. Maybe for Christmas : )


#4369

Nice… I would love an RD-8. I’m hoping for an RD-9 next Christmas. Fingers crossed my last big buy for a looooonnngg time will be a big sky reverb.


#4370

the mk2 is out now, those machines are cheap, me likey, i might pick up one in particular if i get the scratch.


#4371

That will be next on my table. Trying to decide between saving up for a Virus TI desktop or an Argon8M.


#4372

Ive not used or looked into the Virus series at all. But the Argon is looking pretty sweet for the money.
