Re: NAMM 2018: KORG Prologue Demo

Is more polyphony difficult or too expensive to implement? or is it just not needed? In an analog synth, yes, it is expensive and the cost increases linearly with each voice. We are talking discrete hardware components, not software running on a cpu. See here, inside the prologue, 4 voice boards wi...

Re: NAMM 2018: KORG Prologue Demo

I like it. Sounds great. Only thing I don't quite get is max of 16 note polyphony in 2018? 16 voices is actually quite sensational for a dual VCO per voice analog synth, but the rest of the specs seem underwhelming (only 1 LFO?) and in any case the price tag (2000€ for the 61 keys 16 voice version)...

Re: Major flaw found in Intel processors!

Sorry but I have to disagree, the article you posted does not contain an actual detailed technical description of the issue like the arstechnica article does, the defiant.com article is mostly high level fear mongering and sensationalism. I'll say it again, Intel cpus have such a gaping security hol...

Re: Major flaw found in Intel processors!

This is purely a security issue, not a malfunction of the cpu, and not even a particularly bad one as an attacker will first have to gain the ability to run arbitrary code on your machine in order to exploit this security issue. As usual the MSM are completely blowing it out of proportion especially...

Re: Need 48 channel mixer with mostly stereo channels

I don't think that he means the Pro A/V mixer (he said he had space constraints), he probably means the vintage early 90's M480 rack mixer, which was also a nice mixer but given it's age it will be hard to find flawless unit.

Re: KORG New for NAMM 2018

Yeah but that's a softsynth, not the same thing. Korg can easily call a new hardware synth 'Poseidon'. There is no copyright of a name and they couldn't claim confusion unless Korg also produced a software version. It's got nothing to do with copyright but rather with trademarks and soft synths bel...

Re: KORG New for NAMM 2018

Korg can't call a new synth 'Poseidon' as there is already a software-synth called like that:

Re: Thoughts on consolidating the forum to make it more compact?

That looks very good, but I would still also add a visible link to the 'active topics' page next to the 'quick links' on top of every forum page.

Re: Thoughts on consolidating the forum to make it more compact?

Would it be more useful to instantly see the most active topics maybe at the top of the forum rather than having to click a button or go into sections etc? For newbies definitely (as I suggested I would display the 10 threads with most recent posts at the top of the main forum page or alternatively...

Re: New Themes Added To The Forum

I was using the 'prosilver' theme but have now switched to the 'SE square left' theme as that's even easier on the eye.
The default theme is not to my taste but as long as there are alternatives to chose from I don't really mind what the default theme looks like.

Re: Thoughts on consolidating the forum to make it more compact?

I don't think that it has anything to do with the number of subforums. The most important page of any forum is the " recent active topics " page. That's the page where anybody instantly has an overview over what has been talked about recently including what new threads with new (possibly unanswered)...

Re: Battery backed RAM?

The RAM in the EX5 is DRAM, so it doesn't just need power, it also needs to be constantly refreshed.
You were probably thinking of SRAM (which is what the RM50, TG500, SY85, SY99 have).

Re: Need 48 channel mixer with mostly stereo channels

Low price and 48 channels are not something that normally go together although of course the OP didn't say anything about it needing to be at the budget end of the market :) Mixers with 48 channels cost 5 figure sums so this is not about the 'budget end'.

Re: Need 48 channel mixer with mostly stereo channels

Affordable 48 channel mixers don't exist, 48 channels is pro studio territory and costs $$$$$. I think you are approaching this from the wrong angle. Do you really use all 20 synths at the same time? If not then you should get some patchbays and a normal 16-24 channel mixer to which all synths are c...
