I have made quite a few changes to my studio over the past couple months. Added a Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 , Sequential Circuits Six-Trak , Sequential Circuits Prophet 2000 , Yamaha TG-77 , Yamaha TG-33 , A second Alesis Fusion 6HD , Roland Alpha Juno 1. I couldn't resist picking up a Alesis dealer sign i saw on eBay which sits right above my first Fusion. Things have come along way from the setup at the foot of my bed. I have two more keyboards on there way sometime next week a Ensoniq TS-12 and a Casio CZ-3000.
My goal has been to have the various types of synthesis available in my setup, of course the Fusion gives me four right off the bat , AN , FM, Physical modeling and sampling. The Prophet 600 and Six-trak offer analog. The Prophet 2000 12 bit sampling with analog VCF/VCA control. The TG-77 offers advanced FM and AWM , The TG-33 offers Vector synthesis, The TS-12 transwave, and the CZ-3000 offers Phase distortion synthesis.
Im sure there must be yet another type of synthesis im leaving out .
Currently im working on a sample set exclusively for the Fusion of various patches i have created from the Sequential Circuits gear i have. I have a small sampling of patches i will be posting here very soon for anyone that would like to try them out. Cheers have a safe and awesome weekend!
Thanks mickydireland Shreddie and Jesse ! I will look into the K5000 looks interesting I was checking out some youtube videos very cool. The studio is pretty easy to move around in, i do need to clean up the wiring a bit one day.
I posted some samples in the user sample section today for download. Mostly SCI sounds.
I have been working on a sequential sign for the wall in from of the SCI gear since i have never seen one of their dealer signs for sale, i was happy to score the Alesis sign. i know its a sickness but i refuse to seek cure
I think one day I will sell my K5000S since I never had enough time to explore its possibilities...
That's a very good point, it's deeper than a deep thing that you might find somewhere very deep! And some people call the Andormeda a deep synth... I suppose it is but next to the K5000s and its sea of possibilities (and parameters, there's around 2500 in an additive source, and there's up to 6 sources per patch!) it's little more than a small pool!
Although I've had mine quite some time, I feel that I've barely scraped the surface. Some people hate it but I get on very well with it, in fact I find it very easy to use... The only down side is the sheer amount of time it takes to program... There are quick ways of doing things but when I get to the deeper stuff it takes me at least 10 times longer to program than any of my other synths.
So, Foosion, consider yourself warned! To get the best out of it you really do need a great deal of time.
