Re: Nord, any (trusted) insight on feature to cost ratio?

It sounds like you really want the Nord ;)

Though if you've not done so already have a play of the Yamaha CP88.

Enjoy your deliberations!

Re: Recommend Me a New Synth

Recently I missed, much to my anger and disappointment, a secondhand Korg Triton Pro, 76 note workstation for £150. Despite its age, this will do all you need, very nice keyboard, great sounds, it’s not analogue, but who cares? This is a good recommendation. The workstation keyboards of yesteryear ...

Re: Heads up: SSL Native Essentials Bundle Deal

SSL are great at supporting their native range. I was surprised when my perfect good X-EQ licence was upgraded (without charge) to the enhanced X-EQ 2.

Re: Still searching for the Rhodes?

I’m not a competent sound recordist, and I don’t work with a great sound engineer, apart from myself, and I’m still looking for the "real deal" In that case, consider getting a few private lessons with a great engineer - in your space, once you have the instrument. There will be a cool, g...

Re: Quality desk chair for studio 2021?

Second hand Aeron? Try Gumtree. Expect to pay £250 - 350. They are very durable and spare parts are available.

Re: Montage 8 or Kurzweil Forte

I go the other way - I play a big chords and hold it. I tend to listen more to the 'body' of the sound than the attack, which is why it took me a while to warm to the Kronos - beautiful attack, very bright but thin body. The Kurz sound is more rounded to me. And I find that with pianos, eq only goe...

Indeed, but a very valid one given your musical background. I'll be sure to give the Fantom 8 a whirl.

Re: Montage 8 or Kurzweil Forte

Thank you all. I also own a Kronos which is roughly as old as the Forte (they may have stuck a '2' or an 'X' or changed the case slightly, but the actual insides haven't changed since it launched). I would say - and as an old Kurz lover, this genuinely pains me - that their Rhodes and Wurli have an ...
