Hard-Core Gear Porn Friday!!!

Time to cue up "Thus Spake Zarathustra" because the Monolith is here, and we're about to start hitting each other with bones. The above multi-vendor system is owned (or rather was owned, as it is now "30% more wee") by one Vogelsheiss. My German is rusty, but I'm pretty sure that means "hot chicken" or something. Anyways, Charles Graef (which is his real name, I assume, since "Hot Chicken" doesn't work too well with the ladies. Well. maybe German ladies...) is unique among our HCGPF representatives inasmuch as the MP3s available on his site are actually quite good. Like, really good. Good enough that I'll ignore that 1402 just sitting there, all out in the open and naked-like.

And some people, for reasons passing understanding, swear by the DP4. Go figure. So that's okay.

Irony == HCGPF is link-clicking day, HCGPF inevitably ends up being Mackie/Behringer bashing day, GoogleAds then adds more links for Mackie/Behringer. Ergo, if everyone bashes and clicks, Mackie/Behringer must really appreciate AI.com which, nearst I can tell is about as Mackie/Behringer unfriendly as one can get.

Okay, Wade, pony up: WHICH SE-70 effect? You couldn't pry my SE-70 away from me with a crowbar, but that's mostly because of the 21-band vocoder and I'm betting that's probably not your favorite. I've used one of the guitar chains to very good effect also, though.

I like my DP/4 also, but mostly for its 8-Voice Chorus and its odd quirks, like the tendency for its delays to blow up in weird ways at high feedback settings.

Quoting MR. Weeks "I actually have vogelsheisses old synthesizers.com 44 space cabinet - he moved to concentrate on the doepfer and I had 44 spaces worth of modules I needed a cabinet for."

hehe it took me only 3 months to nearly destroy the g2 i got for 22 of those spaces. One good thing about the dotcom modular is, it aint easy to drop. Its nearly impossible to move it really, but nontheless hard to knock off the back of a car, to the street... like a jackass.

>>Okay, Wade, pony up: WHICH SE-70 effect?

wow, it's been YEARS since I had the factory settings installed. Let's see. I think it was originally called "Radio Voice." Turned on the reverb, delay, just about everything - and now it makes every vocalist I record sound like Toni Haliday. Even men, it's makes men sound like Toni Haliday.

I love the SE50 - though I've pretty much been stuck on the multi-tap delays. The DP4's reverbs are good and muddy and running delays in series through the reverb pretty much destroys any sound I put through it.

Darren - sorry about the G2! Hopefully it's serviceable?

So now Wade's got me wondering if I can hack a similar preset on my SE50. I want to sound like Toni Haliday, though I believe I'd need the SE70 to do it. I'll have to hunt the bay over the next few weeks :D
