  Thread: software editor?
Post: RE: software editor?

i understand, BUT, i think that sometimes the 'ideology' of a device's design can get in the way of its use. one example (at least i find it so) is the old Octopus sequencer, a brilliant instrument...

ah - you might be right. the mini version has just usb power. i looked up the 61 key version, and you can get an 'optional' 9v power supply. well, money wasted. not sure if there is a mini sized ke...

  Thread: old synths with editors
Post: RE: old synths with editors

i think it's relevant that the results weren't consistent. When that happens to me, it can sometimes be user error, but sometimes the hardware connections (not talking only about the mrcc per se) can ...
