SoundStage! A/V Tour 2001 Special Show Site
Martion Audiosysteme showed the Orgon four-way loudspeaker, a horn-loaded design with four amplifiers per speaker (two of which operate in pure class A). It is priced at 80,000 DM per pair
____________________________________
Price does not mean it sounds better.

Ive heard Class H amplifiers that sound better than some Class A.
its not about Class sh!t, its about circuit design.
some brands have diferent sound with same class A
for example:
QSC MX700 Class A vs. QSC RMX850 Class A vs. QSC DCA1222 Class A


loudspeaker cable quality is verry important.


with horn loaded you hear better the smaller details,
JBL Control 28 vs. Alesis Monitor 1 mk2
the Alesis M1 mk2 Sounds like half is missing.


theres a lot of verry nice hornloaded loudspeakers and components outthere.
JBL, EAW, Turbo Sound, F1, EV, etc.. etc...
the new EV Evid have great mids, and sweet highs.

this makes me rember:
Timo mass has Function 1 F1.
Richi Hawtin has Tannoy 215 ][
etc...

i think JBL LSR 3-way its good enough,
even Yamaha hs is good enough.
EV dh3 dh2005 dh2010 tweeter sounds great, included in Eliminator and ZX1
also Peavey Rx14 included in PV115

Curious setup, seemed to be using at least 3 separate mixers from what I could see.
Wish we had documentaries like this in the UK.

slutlist:

Cwejman S1
SND sequencer
Schipmann Ebbe & Flut Filter
Roland Space Echo
A load of eurorack modules (couldn't make out what in particular)
MEK (already mentioned)

What mixers and outboard stuff were those?

Not that I really care, but this is Gearslutz, right?

I think the mixer in the rack is an older broadcast mixer, probably Studer.

I'd like to know what was below the desks, and in that tall rack.
we don't get to see that

what do I think? looks remarkably like my old setup, same spacing, same vibe, less green (plants)

thanks for posting, love ARTE, the only thing I miss since I threw out the TV.
and Ricardo's a good guy, and interesting music, got a few tunes here.
funny what he said about the speakers. I'm sure these are great.

this is more my style

SND sequencer

Help me out here guys...what's the rationale behind using an analog sequencer instead of a regular keyboard? What am I missing here?

Is there additional functionality, or cool techniques that simply can't be programmed using keys? Does it have to do with the modulation or routing possibilities? Maybe if the keyboard on that vintage synth is broken this is a way to still use it? Just thinking out loud here.

So what's the hype about and what are some of the other good analog sequencers out there?

Thanks

@reptil only glanced at the vid in mute at work so didnt get any explanations. from what i saw, the guy's surrounded by a ton of small mixers. that's a bit odd!

hmmm
small good mixer = short (unbalanced) signal path + distinctive sound

it also makes sense in a writing room to have a small mixer close to your instrument, and if you have a lot of instruments, have more mixers, and have it/those routed (balanced) to one bay/converters.

a huge mixer only makes sense when doing production with a large band, or if your stuff has many different sounding levels. at least that's my idea about it. once it's up again I'll do 4 mixers on 5 m2

a huge mixer ALWAYS makes sense

the more gigantic it is the more sense it makes.

Would be kind of understandable for a bedroom musician, ie. you got lots of gear and some of your friends happen to have some small, unused mixers lying around, so you chain them together because you can't afford to buy a big mixer. For Lobos, a bit hard to understand. Maybe they are all some really expensive custom mixers that add something extra to the sound?

Like a "low frequency LFO" (R. Villalobos) - LOL - sounds indeed much better than a high frequency LFO!

Detuning. With an analog sequencer you can add or subtract a few cents to a few notes, making the overall sequencer livelier. Furthermore; stupidly fast tempos without retriggering. Also; several step sequencers have 2 or 3 parameters per step, so you can not only change the note but also say, volume or filter cutoff per step. It's the fact that you have everything in front of you, but I can imagine it's not for everyone to appreciate equally.

Depends on your budget and what you plan to control with it.

to me big mixers do not always make sense.
largest would be 36 channels for me, that's managable to work on, while writing.
a pure mixing setup, that's something else. been there done that. bigger is better yes.
and... unless you go for the extreme battleship that costs as much as a new car, big mixers fukk up the sound, and are a bear to maintain.
a big mixer is like a marriage, instead of a couple of sexy girlfriends.

what is this talk about high frequency low frequency oscillators?
high frequency oscillators are often a nice clock source (fukk with the PWM)

Yoozer always comes through with answers for me. Thanks

So can it be set up with any external synth or are they for modulars only? I just purchased a Pro-one and the Pro has CV and Gate inputs/outputs. Can it be used with the Pro?

So you basically don't play a keyboard to design your melody...you dial in steps and adjust each step to a pitch as you would go up or down a keyboard.
