Yeah, but it neatly captures the first words that came into all of our minds.

Actually, I wasn't going to add anything more to this discussion ("putting out fires with gasoline!") but I was just skimming through Synth Secrets and came to the last instalment
https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques ... red-button
which, having discussed that many musicians want "the best synth", finally concludes (after 63 parts):
So — which is the best synthesizer? That's easy. It's the one that allows you to obtain the sounds you want.

Enough said.

I think you've made your point clearly (while comprehensively disregarding the alternative views expressed by several others) so shall we move on now?

Please?

Sorry.

Don't worry about it. Sometimes people just get tired of having the same discussions on here every couple of years... :)

It's great to be passionate and enthusiastic about one's interests and beliefs... but listening and being open to the views of others is a good life-skill too! :D

Latest updates on the D.
Supposedly thy are reaching the 10,000 units mark and need to make at least another 15K more to get on top of things.

As for the neutron, 60? units have passed production testing and they are on target to ship the first units from their factory by the end of april.

Also they want your ideas on what eurorack modules they should make, these will be priced between $49-$100, computer mockups of system 100m modules have been shown.

They will be at superbooth and are inviting people to attend, plus they will have some of their engineers there as well and some new products to show off, inc. the VC340 (which they somehow managed to get back from fiddlestickz, which he REALLY wanted to keep and claims it is the best clone he's ever heard), PRO1, and Neutron.

And lastly from Uli,
'We are just warming up' :D

I'm crossing my fingers that the production models of the VC340 will add the missing octave of keyboard from the proto, but it certainly sounds the business from what I've heard so far.

I'm also salivating about the UBXa, but we're likely a long way from seeing that.

Hats of to Uli for getting our attention - now he's tested the waters with the Model D I hope he is better prepared for the deluge of demand for these gems!

Well, guitar player that I am I've just succumbed to SAS and bought a Model D. Now to work out WTF I'm gonna do with it.

Back in a former life (it seems) I was manager of a guitar/gear department in a well known piano and electronic organ retailer. Down in my aptly named 'gear cellar' I had a Hammond C3/Leslie set up with a MiniMoog on top. Couldn't really play it (apart from a couple of little demo pieces) but it was fun pretending to be Rick Wakeman, but in a suit and tie :headbang:

Perhaps you need to replace the suit and tie with a cape Sam, to get yourself properly into the mood? ;)

Re: Behringer Model D :- On the subject of keyboards

Postby Sam Spoons » Tue Nov 27, 2018 7:53 pm

I have just bought an Arturia KeyStep, it is a beautifully made bit of kit with midi I/O, USB midi I/O, and CV/Gate/Trigger outputs. It has a 64 step polyphonic sequencer, an arpeggiator and two very nice ribbon controllers in lieu of pitch and mod wheels. But (and for me it' a big but) it has mini keys.... I thought I would be able to get on with them but after half an hour's fiddling I'm not convinced I am.

So, any suggestions for a midi controller keyboard with 37 or 44 full sized keys, not too many extra controls (superfluous for the Model D). I could probably just about live with 32 (which the KeyStep has) and 49 is definitely too big (I have a Roland Juno-D with 61 keys so the space saving of a 49 is not worth bothering with).

It must have DIN midi out and midi over USB (I guess I can live without the CV/Trigger outputs if I must). I'd prefer pitch wheels or the lovely ribbons of the Keystation over the joystick on the Juno-D but I love the action of the Roland.

As you know I'm most definitely not a keyboard player, all my very limited skills were learned selling home organs back in the '70s
