    Typhone or Minilogue XD........ or Iridium?

    No space for them all. I have space for one more unit - unless its very small. the monologue would mean an overhand as its 500mm but I could live with the 20mm either side. 460mm is the max width really. Im actually still considering a TR8s as ell - despite now having a pyramid for...

    Typhone or Minilogue XD........ or Iridium?

    Hum - one space left on the new shelf, not sure which way to go. Typhon has those lovely Dreadbox Filter and LFOs. it has that quirky control interface - both limited but cleaver. Its a mono obviously. Its Modulation possibilities are pretty large. Minilogue is full on twin analogue Osc...

    Need some recommendations - studio based.

    Not sure Im going that route. I know what you mean about Presets. I bought the Virus Ti1 used - and he emailed me pretty much EVERY present commercially available. There are over 700 banks of 128 sounds...... 18 months later Ive still not listened to all of them - but Ive been though a...

    Need some recommendations - studio based.

    Like that flow. Tempted with a Hydrasynth - but again its VA/Wavetable. Tempted with a Minilogue - but the sequencer doesnt transpose from the keyboard trigger. If it did Id have that not the DM. Tempted with the Behringer Modle D.... but cant save patches (and not sure I need a mono really...

    Need some recommendations - studio based.

    I use the 2x2 now. I need it to be stand alon really. dont want to hook up to a PC necessarily. I have looked and though its more expensive the Motu Midi Express XT looks pretty good. 8 in 8 out - and has presets. Some factory some user programable. Those presets can be run "stand alone"...

    Need some recommendations - studio based.

    How to connect everything midi wise..... I could fit - a Deep mind 12 Desktop, an OB6 module, and a Digitact. No idea ow to connect the RD and Fantom to all the synths (well that bit I can do using a merger 2 in, 2 out then 2 lanes to the synths daisy chain from there) BUT how go I connect...

    Need some recommendations - studio based.

    OK - My Live rig is kind of set for now. Bottom is my RD2000, Top board is a Fantom 7. I have a 3rd tier shelf with Legend EXP, Virus Ti2 and Peak. They all provide something the others dont - and in a live band mix the fact there is no fully analogue synth doesnt really matter. When I say...

    Roland Fantom 8

    Yeh - if it were a dealer Id agree - but it wasnt, its the distributor.... meaning any issues in its life Id have to deal with them as Kurzweils sole UK representatives.

    Roland Fantom 8

    Im enjoying my Fantom 7... As for the Kurzweil... Id love to try one however, I did contact the distributor direct (about 18 months ago about the PC3 mind) about where I might try one (and I was prepared to travel). They basically told me not to bother, because I wouldnt like the "list"...

    Synth recommendation.... yeh I know..

    I'll have one once kids fly the nest, and I get a bigger room. For now, needs to be a propper poly. I'd prefer 8/12/16 voices really but would be OK with 6 for the right board. Given polybrute, ob6 and p6 are just that......

    Opinion About Roland Keyboards

    DAW. Cloud is basically a VST. Fantom doesnt do orchestral sounds very well. Its OK, but Roland still used 20 year old samples and while there OK, Montage and Kronos do it a LOT better. Having said that, rather depends where you "bar" is. I had the FA07 before my Fantom, and all the...

    Synth recommendation.... yeh I know..

    Just after some thoughts as I try and narrow down the field... Some will know already.... Im primarily a covers band live player, heavily 80s based but with other stuff across the decades. I have a 3 tier stand, currently loaded with an RD2000 and Fantom 7 on the bottom 2 tiers. I "May"...

    Need help for buying workstation

    I guess some of that is personal. The supernatural ep's on the fantom (added in the last few update) are stunning though - at imo took fantom ahead of Kronos for eps. Organs, at present yet probably should have given that to Kronos. A lot will depend if Roland add the vr engine when they add...

    Need help for buying workstation

    As others have said - each has their own thing. I own a Fantom 7, and have tried the others (bar the Kurz - so nothing I say equates to that). The only one with a proper sequencer is Kronos. If thats what you want its the only choice of the 3. Fantoms is an "ableton" style pattern...
