I was introduced to analog synthesis with a Korg Poly 800. And hated it. Analog synthesis was redeemed for my by the AX60 and JX8P [for different reasons]. It was confirmed with the LP. Don't get me wrong; I do have a love of digital synthesis [and damn, I want that CZ3000 back!]... But it doesn't g...

I guess the problem is that I want the arp to play a sequence of four notes when I give it three. Say, from an Am chord: A3-C3-E3-C3 :|| I guess that would be an UP/DOWN pattern. As it is, if you give it three notes, it will play just those three notes: A3-C3-E3 :|| That's not a problem when using t...

I think an editing screen would tax the Phatty's brain, but I wonder if patterns could be updated/changed through a sysex dump. Just sayin'

I have a Fantom X6 and can highly recommend the Fantoms. Withe re release of the G series earlier this year, the Xs have been going pretty cheap. This being a Moog forum, however, it behooves me to remind you not to forget the Moog, either.

Welcome to the family! There are a number of ways to categorize synths... Number of voices: Most synths are either monophonic [they create one tone at a time and cannot play chords], or polyphonic [they can play more than one note at the same time]. Sound generation technology: Mostly, this is a que...

Well... The problem is that I can see how to select between three different pre-set patterns [Up, DN, Ordered] and three different modes. Is there a way to create a different pattern. For example, instead of a one-octave UP arp of an Am chord going: A3-C3-E3-A4-C4-E4 It could go: A3-C3-E3-C3 The pro...

Arpeggiator

Is there any way to edit the arpeggiator patterns on the LPS2? Not directly, I'm sure, but through sysex? I don't find the patterns really all that useful and, surprising to say, think that it could really use a straight up/down cycle.

Who's in charge of that site?

I'm thinking that there should be a Little Phatty subcategory, and we should observe a naming protocol of some sort, like:

LEAD: Psychic Drive

BASS: Ballsy Bass

FX: Abduct Elvis


Just a suggestion, but it would make searching easier.

There should be a clearinghouse somewhere of LP patches that we can share and download -- with sound clips. Hell... I've only had a couple of days with mine, but I think I've already come up with some nice leads... just sayin'...

Little Phatty Desktop Wallpaper

I have the Voyager desktop wallpaper on my studio computer, but geez guys, shouldn't Moog give us some Phatty desktop love? I think the Voyager is a fine instrument, but what are the boys in Asheville saying about the Phatty? That it doesn't rate display on my desktop? That it's the poor cousin of t...

Well... you can tune OSC2 to a fifth and get 2/3 of a triad... With a slow VCA envelope and a long release, anything is possible. Wouldn't be my first choice for a pad (my go-to for pads is a JX8P or an AX60 if I want something aggro). I tried the LP through some effects today... The Big Muff was di...

Too bad you live in Arkansas, Eric, we could collaborate on a live thing. I'm figuring that I could do some pretty cool stuff with the Moog, the Vox and an Electribe, with a bass player and guitarist. I like studio work, but I really would like to take the beast out of the studio... And my LP has so...

... And the letters could be printed on the case just above the associated key, like an old Bontempi organ! ;)
