Re: Any way to filter Readers' Ads from 'New Posts' selection?

The message has been received and understood (the mods would prefer 'New posts' to omit Readers' Ads also). Changes will be made to remove Readers' Ads from 'New Posts' but it's not a click of a button to make happen; various things have to be modified behind the scenes to achieve it. The current ET...

Re: Advice on routing between analog mixer and audio interface

I want to know how to deal with MIDI tracks rendered to audio inside a DAW and then return them to the console to mix them outside the computer. You'd deal with them in exactly the same was any other audio tracks. Route them to outputs on your interface that connect to inputs on your console, then ...

Re: Help needed to identify the synth

Welcome to the forum :wave: This is one of those cases where it'll all be impossible to identify the synth unless the artist used a preset (or a tweaked version of it) and someone is familiar with that preset and thus can identify the synth. It's an interesting sound. To me it has hints of wavetable...

Re: UDO Super Gemini

The only slightly annoying thing is the new Arturia Polybrute 12 is now out, and seems to give the Super Gemini a serious run for its money Both are top of the range instruments and each has something to offer over the other. the Polybrute 12 trumps the Gemini's PolyAT with an MPE-enabled keyboard!...

Re: My Garden Studio project

Re: My Garden Studio project

If you do dig down at all it's worth bearing in mind that concrete is not waterproof unless it's been specially formulated with additives to make it so.

Re: Noisy 2 VST synth

I like the way it allows you to trigger sounds based on either a velocity or continuous pressure approach, depending on how hard you hit the keys. This is one aspect of the poly-AT implementation in Arturia's PolyBrute 12 that I find interesting in that the attack portion of the amplitude envelope ...

Re: PolyBrute 12

If I hadn't already got the original PolyBrute and the UDO Super Gemini I'd have pre-ordered a PolyBrute 12 already I suspect. Sonically it doesn't sound significantly different to the original, although there are the additional control-related aspects, and I find the morphee controller wonderful in...

Not on the Arturia website at the time of writing but loopop just released a video reviewing the new Arturia PolyBrute 12, an updated PolyBrute with 12 voices and their own implementation of a polyAT keybed.

Re: Osmose Expressive E

As a standalone instrument it's damned good. As a controller it's not all champagne and roses... A friend of mine has one and I've played it a few times.

Re: Analog Lab play - free soft synth

I like Arturia. Originally they were soft-synth only but the introduction of some seriously tasty hardware synths and their migration to the Arturia Software Centre for licensing of their plugins was great. It's a huge evolution from their initial model. Their full-fat plugins are as good as any and...
