Re: [Doepfer_a100] I'm seeing orange, orange and orange!
- hi roel,
one word for the mono/poly:EXCELLENT!!!
i use it on every track!i mainly use it for wierd
cross mod,sync sounds as it has 4 vco's and the
combinations/possibilities are many and the sound is
huge!!the bass seems to me very fat...in fact i would
say that it has a better sound than the arp
odyssey(but i like both...).and make no mistake:the
ms10/ms20 synths sound different from a
mono/poly!that's why i want an ms20 despite the fact
that i have a mono/poly.i really love my monopoly!!!of
all my vintage synths it's my favourite and looks much
better that the more expensive odyssey...
as for the selector...who wouldn't want a big system??
but then again i think:for the same money i could
build a monster doepfer a100 system...
so,here's what i will do:first i will build a HUGE
a100 system(much more than 100 modules...).then if and
when i have the money i will go for a selector system
(that,i must admit,it has a very small selection of
modules...despite the name...)
as for the a112: i can not resist the possibility of
changing the sample rate in real time...that's why i
and who is that bernd kistenmacher???i haven't seen
any cd's of him in greece...
