does the rouge have ring mod also, i thought it didn't if it doesn't that's one thing that could swing you over to an mg-1 No, I don't think the Rogue has the ring mod, nor does the prodigy. Just the MG-1. It's not a fancy ring mod, it's a simple circuit that uses a logic chip to do the sum and dif...

But does anyone have experience of this instrument? I'm just thinking - there was a guy here not long ago who wants a Moog but can't afford a Voyager or a Mini. A friend lent me one after I lost my Arp Odyssey in a fire. I think it has a lot of potential. It would be a good beginner's synth, but al...

You have a point there. I think if the CV routing were there, so that you could get out to a Fooger Ring Mod, and also out and back to/from the CP-251, that would make sense. There's noise on the CP-251, so maybe the noise gen really could be left out in the model you propose as well. i don't think ...

try finding an old copy of Allen Strange's "Electronic Music: Systems, Techniques, Controls" (I think that's what it's called). The first edition is really from the old analog days.

I agree with most of the folks who say they should put out an affordable mono-synth with at least: 2 VCO w/ sync and PWM 1 LFO 2 ADSR or 1 ADSR and 1 AR 1 VCF 1 VCA S/H RingMod Noise Gen And some patchability in the signal path (like being able to put the VCO's into the S/H instead of just the Noise...

This is a tad impractical advice, since they are so $$$ but an Arp 2600 makes a very nice add-on to a guitar. It has a pre-amplifier on it that you can put your guitar into, and the pre-amp is hardwired to an envelope follower. From there you've got a filter, ring mod, and tons of other stuff. But t...

Good question about the memory man... I looked on ElectroHarmonix' web site, they said it had, I think 550 MS. Wasn't that the same time the 'fooger pedal had? Yes, the Blacet caugh my attention, but it requires a chassis, powerSupply... Anything similar to a fooger? I'm really interested in trying ...

re: recommend a delay?

It's not analog, it's digital, and I don't own any MF pedals (I just like to read these forums) but, all that considered... I contemplated the Moog delay for a long time, and then decided I needed more than a second's memory. So I went for the Line 6 DL4 delay modeler. I don't use much on the pedal ...

cp 251 and black coffee

has anyone ever used a cp 251 to control an analoge solutions black coffee? are they built on the same cv level technology to allow them to interface, or are they based on different standards?
thanks,

Discrete vs. Non-Discrete?

Hello, I've been reading some of the threads here and encountered a term I've never seen in all my years of analog synthesis. In the debates over old Moogs/new Moogs/other synths/new synths, etc. there has been some talk about "discrete" components" versus components that are "no...
