Thanks :-) I do certainly use it all frequently maybe except the JX-3P which doesn't get uesd too much now days buy I realy do need to invest in some good signal processing like compressors...
My dream compressor is the API-2500 at the moment...does magic to sound
This is a totaly unfinished tune I did with Mark Andrews from this forum with the API on compression duties, I took my Micro Q round his and 99.8% of the synth sounds are from it...
As you can see I like my bass (Kicks in at 1min mark)

Yes M-E its not bad ...... its nice to have an extra gadget too!

The pots feel a bit loose i hear you ..... it would be nice to have the resistance of the ALPS but its only an occasional-use piece so it dont really bother me in the long run. I like it overall!

Actually ........ here's the thing. The pots i find are just right for an iso ......... dampened pots are great for the precise mix but maybe unnecessary for fast eq adjustments?

He bought the console including the stands from DualSF located in San Francisco and he had them ship it all the way to Boston. When I talked to him he said they made a mistake on the mixer section which was supposed to be a 19" rack for the Rane and 7 RU spaces for the 2016 with expander plus a meter, they only made it 6 so he could not fit the meter. Not much you can do when they are on teh other side of the country.

I had them custom make me a console as well since I'm only 50 miles from them. Heres mine



It looks great but they made several mistakes including the 3 front racks not meeting my depth requirement after they said they could, failing to use actual rack rails and not using any kind of stop in the record storage section. They came down and installed stops so the record storage area is correct, and they cut portions away that are out of eye sight underneath to meet my depth requirement. They were unable to fit rack rails though because of the way they built it which has me SUPER pissed off. They used the shitty wood strips instead and when I wanted them pulled out and replaced with rails they said the were glued and nailed in and pulling them would likely damage the unit asthetically.

They are excellent craftsmen and are capable of turning out absolutely buautiful work but it seems that they are always in to big of a hurry due to taking on more than they are capable of and they miss important details because of it. On top of that they don't seem to stand behind their work when they make mistakes. I have tried numerous times to get in touch with them to figure out a solution to the problem but they ignore calls and emails. I am thinking of taking them to small claims court and I do NOT recomend them to anyone.

That sounds horrible, if you can prove that they dindn't meet your demands you could claim a refund , or doesn't it work that way in the US?

I understand how difficult it is to build such a cabinet (actually building a big one right now), but you'd expect a commercial product to be be built to your (stated) requirements, nothing less.

You could buy (interclamp) scaffolding connectors to make them yourself.

In the US it may be easier to get KeeKlamp or SpeedRail fittings. They are basically the same as interclamp (and each other). Grainger in Sunnyvale carries them, not sure how much they stock, but it is a popular item and you should be able to find something.

You can also use 8020 "T" slot framing. There are often odd cuts and overruns on ebay.

We use a lot of this stuff at my work. Unfortunately I think they might notice if a safety rail went missing.

Yep, the Dual booth uses the speed rail brand fittings.

All in all I'm happy with my booth, added in the meter under the mixer in front, and it works out fine.

But Kevin is right, they have some customer service issues to work through, particularly at this price point.

I'm going to start building something like this. I think it is the coolest one I've seen.

Yo how do you like your new Blofeld? I has a Microwave XTK I loved but gave it up for my Nord Lead 3. Was looking at the new Waldorf stuff as a possible new tabletop.

Not so sure about that, he prefers the simple approach of less components with his philosophy Otherwise he would have gone active many years ago.

To put it very short...not really a finished product yet in true Waldorf style....probelems with encoder pots (various batches of pots sucked from the word go), copious ammounts of buggs and issues with the OS, stereo out only, no midi through.

It's basicaly a Micro Q beefed up with revised spec...it's even got basicaly the same OS just modified.
Sound wise it's a Waldorf for sure..it's got the analogue modeling of the Micro Q but with the ability to set the brightness of the Oscilators making them more like the big Q, it's also got all the wavetables from the XT but these are 16 bit and don't suffer from the interpolation distortion like on the XT which imo give it a nice distinctive sound, sweeping the wavetable on the Blo is smooth...you get the PPG filter from the big Q
Sound is lovely if you by-pass the crappy reverb and dellay FX yet at times it can still sound wooly though.
With Specter (at a extra 100 quid for the desktop) you can load and map your own wav samples on it BUT you CANT resynthesize aka make your own wavetables with it like you can on the older microwaves.
I'm a big fan of the 2/XT, Microwave 1 and Micro Q so the Blofeld pleases...I mean once the buggs have been ironed out it's a cool machine and sounds good, good interface although you can't select to edit both filters at once!
I'm a big fan of my Micro Q after many OS updates and hair pulling they finaly got it right hahah

Mike Huckaby has programed the Blofeld for months and got mad sounds from it and this dude owns an original Wave, he loves the Blo...if only I had his patiance right now, I can't be arsed with making music this time of year.

This is mostly all from the Blofeld and Micro Q (Live Deep House Jam) Some very D-50 like sounds at the end from the Blofeld
