Just thought I would drop a note to say I have ordered the expansion board!! woo!! Very Happy

Had been planning to get the Blofeld, which is still on my list but figured it made more sense to do this first. Cool

To anyone considering getting one, they are real cheap in the UK from here:

Ross (iPassenger),

thumb up congrats!!!

Now you can put 100% in your voice area, and 100% in your fx area, and multiply it all by 4 slots (assuming all patches are monophonic) ... grrrrrriiiiiiinnnnnn ...

re blofeld, well, I'm more than happy with my waldorf Xt which features an analog in vs a blofeld that doesn't (nor is it avail in canada, still, sigh), and in conjunction with a x0xb0x (which is on its way) means more filtering than grandma would approve ....
/Dasz

ps.: the only thing you could do next is get another expanded G2 ... having 2 G2's expanded opens all sorts of doors

I know, but that's a lot of $$ Sad
I wish you could place the expansion cards on top of eachother, 4, 8, 12, 16.. DSP's (kind of like the Kyma.)

misty.

Thanks fellas. Hopefully get it next week sometime.

hehe @ misty! How many do you need?

The reason i changed my mind about it (vs the Blofeld) was it occured to me that I often use 1 or 2 sounds from Nord, the rest of the spectrum covered by my other machines.. and that i try to keep my polyphony reasonably high (min 7 notes for one sound and maybe a mono second instrument) this often means that my design decisions come down to cpu power rather than sound. Now that wont need to be half as much of a concern (well actually it will be exactly half). Very Happy

The XT has to be much more usable with all of those knobs, than the Blofeld's prohibitive interface, ehh?

I'm using the G2 a lot lately in my productions, once you start with crossover filters and full stereo-paths you'll want more! Smile

Hehe.. I know.

Installed it last night, scary as I didn't want to brake anything but it was dead easy. Guide seemed to have the number of screws down wrong and there weren't any bloody washers it mentioned but still all in all a very easy upgrade. That extra power is gonna take some getting used to.

Indeed. Smile

It is really nice knowing that worse case scenario on one synth I still have 7 voices, which is comfortable amount of poly in most cases. (More than a Juno or a Prophet) etc.

Do it. Smile

Think of it as an investment in your happiness, which is good for your health.. It's a bit like going down the gym when you think about it. Smile
