OMG If I did know it I'd have repressed it.

I got VSM - Dream Strings from Yesteryear Exclamation
among those instruments there is also the lousy Elka Rhapsody I used to play when I was a teenager (placed on top of a Rhodes 73) Cool

Ah, it could be viewed as an input source for the kind of processing you do. That makes sense. D' Oh!

This raises another matter in my slow mind the I would like to pursue in a bit. Thanks for stirring an oldish mind.

Right! Laughing

Apart from the fact that the Eminent 310 is a nice instrument, this is exactly the kind of signal source I want for doing more of what I´m already doing.

As you already know, I have some Roland JV 1080s and JV 1010s that I use as cluster sources .. and then piped into other stuff. These have a lot of nice waveforms and I can basically use them as oscillators for further processing.

Pretty OK. The best I´ve found so far for the money. I got it brand new but very cheap. They are cleaning out the inventory of the UF 5, 6, and 7.

That said, I found the CME 88 keys hammer action to be a total disaster, both the old and the new model.. so I went for a Kurzweil SP2X in order to get a decent full sized "near-piano-action" keyboard. The nice thing about the Kurzie is that it has a few nice sounds onboard. The electric pianos are absolutely OK. I did however buy Lounge Lizard in order to get some more grit and growl.

The plan is to have the UF7 on a second tier above the Kurzie.



I do however need to get my old midi pedals repaired or I might even buy one of the new Roland or Kenton midi pedal thingies. It is way cool to fill in with a deep sine synth bass when playing electric piano.

Well, it´s actually been awhile since I played one of these myself but I remember it to be absolutely OK .

However, our most excellent member Oskar is hammering away on it as we speak. We must await his report! Very Happy

Well, since my flat hasn't quite overflowed with gear just yet, i've borrowed Stein's new UF7.
First impressions? Being a guitarist I won't necessarily claim to be an authority on the merits and demerits of various controllers, but it rsponds nicely to my unconventional hammerings, and it suited my idiosyncratic way of achieving fast repetitions. Already looking like a keeper, and if I can get it to do what I want in Logic I'll have to get one myself!

^^ THen there's always the DSP cards (& that older Waldorf card, too) for those CME keyboards! My bandmate uses a UF controller...loves it. We're trying to convince another guy in the band to go for the VX series controllers from CME...anything motorized is very very nice Smile

Well, I suddenly found myself in need of a Korg VC-10 / Roland VP - 330 style vocoder with a keyboard. I´m out of those at the moment and the vp 550 does the job just fine it seems.

They could have left out the scat preset though.. Rolling Eyes OMG..

I really don´t think they will make your MSP5s obsolete though. Very Happy

no, my MSP5 are not obsolete Very Happy I'm not going to sell them Exclamation You can see the HT206 behind me with a coronoid fracture of the right ulna. I fell down some stairs last night hitting each of the 9 steps with my right elbow Crying or Very sad I'm afraid I'll have to keep this plaster cast for a month (I'm typing with my left hand) but I'll have the time to evaluate my new monitors that sound very clean. Very Happy
