In Reply to: QS6.1 & 'Q Cards'(Does the 'Vintage Synth' & 'Classic Keyboards of 60's & 70's' have good retro vintage analog sounds & Hammond B-3) posted by gholland on December 23, 1998 at 04:39:35:

Sorry I meant 'Vintage Synths & Classic Beatboxes' and the 'Vintage Keyboards' Q Cards...

: Hello!

: I was told that not having a resonance filter on the 'QS6.1' didn't can use the lfo-linked flange
: effect?(What is this and how does it work?).For gettting retro analog sounds with the 'Vintage Synth Card'
: What about VCO oscillators(I think that's what it's called)that is associated with retro analog sounds.
: Does it simulate this also with the 'Vintage Synth Card'? Does it have 'Portamento' I need this?

: I thought about one the 'Virtual Physical Modeling Synthesis' keyboards-the're suppose to have great
: retro analog sounds...but then you sacrifice the acoustic sounds that I want also.(So that's out...)
: I'm on a budget so my choices are limited...

: I had a 'Yamaha CS1x...but I just recently sold it.The analog sounds sounded a little high end, tinny, or
: maybe I'm thinking digital.(Probably with editing and shaping the sounds I could have made it better...but that's not what I want or have time to do).The acoustic sounds were just okay too...

: I want a synth keyboard with good retro analog sounds of the bands and vintage synths I mention below in presets...but also good acoustic sounds(piano,Hammond B-3, etc.. in presets.)Or with using the 'Alesis' q cards. 'That I can just hook up and play...

: The 'Vintage Synth Card' hopefully would cover the late 70's & the early 80's New Wave sounds.
: I know there's a 'Vintage or Classic Keyboards of the 60's & 70's' q card too...maybe this would cover some of the old electric pianos & Hammond B-3 sounds.( Have you heard this card as well????)
: I heard the QS6.1 has great acoustic piano sounds already in it...without a q card.(It supposedly has the better piano sounds of the 7 & 8).

: Anyway, the vintage synths and synth sounds of bands I want are:
: Some of the early 'Cars','Missing Persons','Gary Numan',etc..(All that early New Wave 80's MTV music).
: Some of the 70's music too...Kraftwerk,Parliament,Emerson, Lake & Palmer and late 70's soul/disco funk.
: (The 'Vintage Synth Card' is suppose to have sampled 'Keith Emersons'moog sound by his you know?).

: The actual synths I like to get close to:
: Roland Jupiter-8, Juno 106, Moog, Mini-Moog,Sequential Prophet-5, ARP, PPG...

: I'm a singer and I'll just be playing simple riffs & chords with a live band using it in the background...not as a lead instrument.(I'm a novice & not a keyboard I'll be doing basic simple stuff). Our Music is basically 'Modern Rock/Alternative Pop'.(No techno, dance,rave. etc...)

: If it works out...I'll use it in the studio as well on our next recording.

: How much do the 'Q Cards' cost new anyway...can you get them used?

: Thanks...-G.Holland
