>>51476684

It looks better but the architecture is exactly the same, I only paid $365 for my Minibrute so I really couldn't justify dropping $550.
>>
>>51476707
It has a sequencer instead of an Arpeggiator which I think is a bit more useful since I want to do Berlin school kind of stuff.

I would be paying $400 so pretty much the same as the regular version
>>
>>51476719

Just save up a few more bucks and buy a Beatstep, it's a great investment, and can do a lot of shit. The sequencers they put in the brutes are pretty much useless anyway.
>>
>>51476738
Do you know if the beatstep is compatible with a Korg Mini-Ms20?

Eventually I want to add one of those and a sequencer along with the mini-brute. Just getting back into synths so just building things one at a time right now. I used to have some pretty amazing gear that I feel like an idiot for selling (prophet 5, prophet 600, jupiter 6) oh well

The guy talking shit about the System-1.. I kind of understand. When I saw it for the first time I thought it was cool, the whole color matching collection of synth/drum machine w/e. Then I played it and the keyboard is very strange, the synth is alright to play around with though. This is just Roland trying to encourage consumers to buy reissued, reskinned instruments

I think that the whole Aira range is aimed more towards the live performers that want vintage hardware, but don't care about the crap sound

Anyone who refuses to use any Aira products in the studio is right, tho: There's really no reason to buy a VA synth if you'll use a laptop, anyway.
>>

turning knobs and hearing the sound come through a real amp rather than computer speakers is very liberating. It's like that very short time we lived where we made electronic music without computers

>>51479751
I've come to that conclusion. I used to have an MS2000b but sold it because a) after learning more about synth programming and electronic music in general I found I could create more sounds and more interesting sounds using my computer and b) I found someone who was willing to pay $800 for it

I recently bought a Korg Monotron and it's jolly good. definitely worth the 30 eurobucks.

also bought a casio SA-2 which i want to build a wooden case around it and maybe tweak it

>>51476782

Don't get a Beatstep, get a Behringer BCR2000 (I know, but trust me on this) and a copy of the custom Zaquencer firmware. It's ridiculously powerful:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuwrqdzXwcY

And yes it'll work with the MS-20 mini, both the beatstep and Zaquencer BCR2000
>>
>>51480211
BCR only does midi though, which means only automating notes, not CVs
>>
>>51479874
>aimed more towards live performers that don't care about the crap sound

This is the only way I could see it justified lol, or if you were rich and didn't want to find an old TR808 and wanted new sound toys to play with.
>>
>>51480282
Good point. I forgot Beatstep has CV too.

Unfortunately it wouldn't work very well with the MS-20 mini then, as it uses Hz per volt CV rather than the standard volt per octave that most other modular equipment uses.

You'd need a converter such as the English Tear:

awwwyeuh. is that an A-100? I would love to have the space/flexibility for one but refurbing one is a little pricey nowadays
>>
>>51479964
It still holds in general that VAs, digital effects, etc. don't offer anything that VSTs can't do.
>>
>>51480522
80s digital sounds different than software since it's low res. Also hardware is more stable for live use, and depending on what you make it might be frowned upon to play on a laptop.
>>
>>51480490
>Is that an A-100?
Uhh, kind of.

It was a BV that was put in an A-100 cabinet and given trek II percussion. Then it was chopped and paired with a Leslie 700. Then I found it on Craigslist.

Thankfully my father is a tone attorney, so he has no qualms about having it stored at his place. It also helps that I am able to perform most repairs myself.
>>
>>51479782
You're out of your mind if you think the TB3 sounds better than a x0xb0x or Bassbot. I'd have bought two Bassbots.

I'm sorry but it's not going to be authentic acid if you're using a digital clone of the real thing. You'd probably be laughed off stage if you did a show with proper acid artists.
>>
>>51480635
>80s digital sounds different than software since it's low res.
It's true that in some cases this is difficult to emulate, but in general it's still nothing special. Manufacturers invented a lot of things on their own that aren't published in academic literature, etc. but it can still be reverse engineered and accurately emulated in software.

Yes, at a Roland-sponsored event:

It was basically a showcase for the Aira line you fucknut.

>>51480656
aaah I see. Great find! And yeah, the good thing about ol' Hammonds is they're mechanical and electrical, as opposed to electronic. No chips or circuit boards to fight with. The hardest thing about them is keeping the vibrato scanner clean, keeping the switch and bussbar contacts clean, and of course keeping the caps from closing-up.

I have to recap mine (M-100). It's about $100 for the set and a shitload of careful unsoldering/soldering so I haven't gotten around to it blah.

Nice find though! And tone attorney? Ha.
>>
>>51480955
I see plenty of opportunity for that kind of shit now, but I can't really bring myself to do it. It's a golden age of cheap 90s synths. Korg Z1, Kawai K5000, Yamaha EX5, etc...

But still, why?

Put the ribbon cable in the wrong way round like a fucking corndog, probably put 5 volts somewhere it shouldn't have gone. Hoping it's just a blown surface mount capacitor I can get my dad (who is skilled in these arts) to replace - If not I'll have to buy a new engine board

Sucks because I was just getting into it. The FUNs are great - you can do math on LFOs and CCs and shit. Like I made a pulse-width-modulateable square wave LFO by adding the mod wheel to a ramp LFO (between -0.5 and 0.5), and taking everything > 0.5 as 1, anything less than 0.5 as 0. So when the mod wheel is at 0 there's nothing greater than 0.5 so the entire wave is at 0, but as you increase the mod wheel more and more of the ramp goes over 0.5 so more and more of the wave becomes 1 until all of it is
>>
>>51481174
Damn that's cool. I wish /diy/ wasn't a dying hobby these days, it's pretty much just modular synth guys now
>>
>>51481200
I damaged mine when I upgraded the RAM. It was a bad RAM stick or something. It still mostly works, although it crashes on the self-test and I don't think I can use the sample RAM.

>The FUNs are great
Yeah, you can do ridiculous chaotic feedback loop stuff with it too. It's a lot more flexible than anything else I've owned.
>>
>>51481217
What? It's not. The whole "maker" thing is a huge fad. Granted it's mostly pleb Arduino and 3D printer stuff, but it's still really big.
>>
>>51481217
Yeah I know a good few people who do modular synths, which is pretty cool but I'm not into it enough to do it myself. Plus I like acoustics/electroacoustics much more than electronics, if that makes any sense.
>>
>>51481267
Yeah I'm fairly sick of the "gimme a 3d printer file because I can't make anything" crowd, but what I really mean is that its damn near impossible to find other electronics hobbiests these days. Perhaps I just moved to the wrong town though, I used to live near Minneapolis which was very /diy/
>>
It is pretty bullshit to start the "a laptop would do more" everytime.

I have tried both and for me more limited 1 hardware synth makes me work more and be more cfeative than having 200 synths on the laptop.
Not to mention that I am overwhelmed in learning all of the things o the VSTs and end up doing nothing.
it is very subjective what instrument is good even though it is objective that laptops have more sounds and effects sure.

it is like 360 and PS3 controllers. A 360 feels more comfortable but I am a better player with a Dualshock.

So stop being extremists, ekther kids with laptops or purist oldfags and talk about what works for you and synths!
>>
>>51481288
>acoustics/electroacoustics

I've tried to read stuff about acoustics but I feel like I'm not really learning anything because I can't hear examples. How do I get more into this?
>>
>>51481288
It's far too much of a time sink. You can go a lot further and a lot faster by building shit in software.
>>
>>51481356
Depends on what you're trying to do. If you're making a FFT, there's no reason to not do it in software. But you're not going to build a speaker or amplifier with software
>>
>>51481339
>It is pretty bullshit to start the "a laptop would do more" everytime.
In a literal way, though, CPUs advance more quickly than DSPs, and VSTs are generally a lot more fresh and innovative than hardware.

But in the end it's really all about workflow. I got tired of hardware a while ago, but it's still nice to have your pick of what to use.
>>
>>51479751
>>51479914
>>51481339
analog synths run on electricity, electricity by nature is unpredictable, things like analog filters introduce texture to the sound that digital does not produce.

digital sounds by default are perfect. when a computer produces a square wave, it creates a perfect square, and when a computer filters that square wave it precisely cuts out the frequencies that it is told to cut out.

here lies the interesting part. analog by default is scientifically more pleasing to the ear than digital. humans have never been used to perfect sounds. there is nothing in nature that creates a perfect sound. guitars, pianos, cymbals and so on all produce sounds which have at least slight imperfections in pitch and timbre.
you can keep telling yourself your vst sounds just as good but just know you are wrong.
>>
>>51481398
What I found was that all the stuff that's fun and exotic in modular synths is really much easier to make and control in software.

I was talking about electronics vs programming more than I was about modular synthesizers. From a practical standpoint vs theoretical.
>>
>>51481484
>analog synths run on electricity, electricity by nature is unpredictable
This is a really dumb way to think about it. Electricity is absolutely predictable above the quantum level.

>things like analog filters introduce texture to the sound that digital does not produce.
The difference is in the nonlinearities, delay-free feedback paths and lack of aliasing, not "electricity".

>digital sounds by default are perfect.
No they're not. There's aliasing.

>when a computer produces a square wave, it creates a perfect square
It's not really difficult to model arbitrary waveforms, and besides you're conflating "imperfect" with "good".

>analog by default is scientifically more pleasing to the ear than digital
Jesus christ no it fucking isn't, your reasoning is terrible; electronic signals are far, far more "perfect" than acoustic sounds.
>>
>>51481563
Yeah but still, if you're building electronics you spend most of your time on the physical realization rather than the design (which I think is by far the more interesting part). Software is more of a direct implementation of the math, no soldering, clipping component leads, stripping insulation, ordering parts, wire ties, etc. needed.
>>
>>51481012
How do I into synths? Are there any good explainatory videos out there on synths?
>>
>>51481689
Look for reading material, not videos.
>>
>>51481484
I use hardware because that's my workflow
but you are retarded
>>
>>51481350
Hmm not really sure. Depends what branch you're really wanting to get into. Like, room acoustics? There's a good amount of books out there (Master Handbook of Acoustics, Acoustics by L. Baranek, etc) but as far as "hearing examples" go that's kinda tough.

>>51481356
And yeah if you don't want to do hands-on you design all kinds of shit in Matlab or MaxMSP/PureData, etc. I like hands-on projects for at least my spare time work though.

>>51483954
Oh ya. I should also add the microKorg was my first synth and if you can find it for under $150 I would buy it.
>>
anyone know of any good multi effects units for glitchy and other momentary performance effects

I like what the kaoss quad pad does but I need something I could preferably use with dialed in parameters that I could use with a midi foot controller
need both hands for keys and the like
x-y pad requires too much attention for my style of performance
>>
>>51476684
i own the minibrute and it has a much wider range of sounds you can develop than the microbrute, but if it works best for you to have prearrenged sequenced sounds, then the micro is probably best choice. minibrute sounds amazing for the price it's a living creature

I could watch Katsunori UJIIE testing synths forever
>>
>>51484146
the microbrute and minibrute have the same audio circuit

if you want to get the 1:1 experience, you just need to patch in an extra LFO and aftertouch

Is there avideo that showcases it well, the ones I watched it sounded ugly as fuck in

got a good deal on an akia mpk 49.
what do i do now? I can play piano and know some music theory. my computer is real nice to, just need a sound card.
>>
>>51484317
Yeah, still not really feeling it.
>>
>>51484325
get a DAW and plug in your akai via usb.

Whatever daw you get: logic, cubase, FL studio, etc. (doesn't matter which one) will have a bunch of preset synths and instruments inside of it that you can play with your akai and edit on your computer
>>
>>51483954
I also have a Korg Triton with a 300 pages manual and big menu screen.

I spent more time with that machine turning the 4 knobs it has than reading the manual.
knobby synths have one page manuals. It's all about what you think in your head and making it on the fly.
any knobby synth, I don't advertise system1, it was affordable for me and had the functionality for my needs so I got that.

I think BassStation II has better sound but the functionality doesn't work for me at the moment.

But it is true if you can andure menus and learn to work fast on them, you will be in a better position down the line.

Who PureData/Max MSP here?
>>
>>51484421
I tried once, but I gave up because I'd rather make music than code
>>
>>51484408
so i got it working with FL.
not really sure how mapping things work.

should i just google some guides or anything else everyone wished they learned in the start to make things a little easier?
>>
>>51484416
I wasn't dissing you personally. I'm just not a fan of the whole no menus idea.
>>
>>51484421
Pure Data here, anymore I don't really use anything else. Hardware stuff is all dusty.

No worries. Just discussing.
>>
>>51484120
It kinda depends on what you're looking for, but some guitar processors offer a lot of stuff for not much money, and they can do a bunch of weird stuff that's generally overlooked by guitarists.
>>
>>51484404
It's really flexible and you can get more or less whatever you want out of it. The digital oscillators and delay modulation sound really dirty, and the filters aren't really wild, but otherwise it's whatever you want it to be.
>>
>>51484500
If you know music but don't know how to use a DAW, it's not that bad, just look for tutorials on how to use FL (there's a lot of shitty ones though). Also read the manual. Think of it like the tracks are the parts of your song, and then channels allow you to mix (raise volumes, frequency ranges, add reverbs, delays, etc.).
>>
Bump.

Mopho x4 or Prophet '08?
>>
>>51485399
Idk, What type of music do you make? IMO the P08 is way better, but if you don't need the 4 additional voices or the bigger keyboard you could get the mopho.
>>
>>51485438
I'm mostly doing right hand stuff on a minimoog, and my JX-10 is way too gigantic and has no knobs.

I just want a polysynth that's more snappy and Juno-like for my left hand.
>>
>>51485484
You could probaly get away with a mopho then. It's a bit more like a Juno since it has a sub osc. Be prepared to drop some cash on a nice analog chorus if you want the juno sound though.
>>
>>51485542
Oh I already have a pretty good chorus box.

I also have a Leslie that might be fun with it.
>>
>>51485484
Get something different. There's too much overlap there.
>>
>>51485595
I want it specifically for a gigging setup, which is why I want to replace the giant ass JX-10. I also don't want to have to deal with another vintage instrument that needs constant maintenance. I also have a DX7 and a combo organ in this rig.

What do you think would fill it's niche better? And what would you constitute as "different"
>>
>>51485399
Get the PHAT 108

What's a relatively cheap good fake TB-303?
>>
>>51485676
If it's for gigs, maybe it should be a cheap VA or something. The problem is, gigs or not, you're spending money on something that isn't all that different from what the JX can already do.

>I also don't want to have to deal with another vintage instrument that needs constant maintenance.
Most of them don't really need all that much maintenance. I know it's not really so gig-friendly, but maybe an ESQ-1 or something would broaden the tonal palate a little bit.
>>
>>51486210
Again, I'm looking to replace the JX-10, not add to it. I want something that is a poly that I can edit on the stage.

I've already tried using a Blofeld, but that makes the setup even more complicated. It does what I'd need the ensoniq to do, but with the advantage of not having ensoniq build quality.

From the way you make it sound, the Mopho x4 is exactly what I need.

Got an Elektron Analog 4 the other day.

It's good.

Sequencer trick: Hit C2 then C3. Turn the sequencer on and you can now play octave bass lines without any skill ala New Order.

Getting a Moog LPF from UPS tomorrow. Plan to run it with my Microbrute and bass fuzz. Will post results later.
>>
>>51489205
The envelope filter? You might just be better off running bass though it, it has balls.
>>
>>51489254
Yeah, feels like the LPF on the microbrute is a bit lacking so I stepped up my game and ordered the moog. I'll be experimenting with a whole bunch of things but I'm pretty excited overall.
>>
>>51489303
your best friend with that pedal will be the gain knob, there's something well thought out in that gain circuit

Who puredata here?
pic related, project on FM synthesis and it's effects
(FMorgao => FMorgan, FMtambor => FMdrum, FMblocodemadeira => FMwoodenblock, FMfagote => FMBassoon)
>>
>>51490275
Holy shit this makes me not want to try pure data
>>
>>51490275
how can I get into puredata? Is it free? I have a bit of programming skill, but c sounds still went over my head.
>>
>>51490689
That makes me want to use puredata.
>>
>>51490691
It's completely free. All objects have a very nice and useful tutorial about them. The community is a little small, but you find a lot of tutorials online nevertheless
>>
>>51478474
Wtf I don't get it
>>
>>51490933
The V synth? Or the russian thing?
>>
>>51491086
Russian thing

Is there any "synth guide" to help me catch up with this thing?
