Re: Roland & Studio Electronics new boutique analog synth

you may check out this demo for the performer:
Simon Ayton, known here for his De-Vice plugins and the ISON EQ (which is still my favorite choice in those rare cases I need an eq) 8)

Re: SHOWDOWN - Scope vs Native

My ears must be dirty ! I find the reason one more clear, the mastering must have being different : more high frequencies. I'm trying to be as objective as possible, the Scope one is more like if there is some "glue", like all the track is going thrue a reverb. I may hear more easily all different ...

Re: Wich headphones

sorry for misunderstanding... I swear on old AKG K501, 601,701 which I usually buy 2nd hand and replace the earpads (the parts have identical size and connectors, I prefer 601 pads) These parts are quite expensive, but you get a very decent piece of gear that way for about 1/3 of the original price....

Re: where can i download adern software not flexor

I'm unshure about the key system with those devices, but I have Mojo and the Fat Cat stuff, no XOR iirc. Might take a couple of days because I'm not where the machine is.

Re: Wich headphones

iirc I once tested this model, very (!) precise and certainly a great live monitor with focus on essentiel frequencies. But no way to be used in the full range domain, mixing etc. If you're looking for an 'extend' version with a similiar mid pronounciation it may become expensive. I have no idea for...

Re: Anyone into Eventide VST Plugins?

... Empressor is great, so is of course the H3000, some nice modulators and harmonizers. All in all a very nice bundle I couldn't afford at $1200 full price, but I paid around $250 in total, which is extremely good value! Not really impressed by the reverbs as well... But, I must say the Soundtoys ...

Re: Does anyone have experience with protools and scope?

well, extremely late response, but as I just put something like that together recently...

Re: Why is the old orisis software so expensive?

I agree with Dante and Sounddesigner: the Software was outstanding at it's release time, but today there are more advanced tools available (in asimiliar price range). Algorythmix obviously found their niche and have few reasons to change price policy. I also agree with you that MAKING music is the m...

Re: Ageing card symptoms

way too far back in time
but be assured whenever I had this idea of 'caps may be aged', it NEVER changed a thing

Re: Ageing card symptoms

don't bother with caps - I suspected them a couple of times, ALL false alarms
on a Scope card those caps are just buffers for current, not functionally involved like in a preamp
the boards are quite hard to desolder, good chances to damage instead of repair...
