Quasimidi Sirius
The Sirus is a "small" analog modeling synthesizer 1998.
Quasimidi manufactured by a German company has now disappeared.
Checks are complete, the keyboard is flexible.
For the rest of the specs, see below.

UTILIZATION

The basic sounds are fun but not today, of course, since this monster show 10 years on the clock. You turn the knobs or better, we enter the bowels of the beast.
It is silly to be offended by the lack of editing features because it is only in appearance. It is entirely possible way back through the menus to program sounds from A to Z.
Ach, I had the manual was in German at the start, but recovered later on the Net in French (bad) and English (more accurate) by a friend.

SOUNDS

Sounds of Sirius are dated very basic, very cliché.
It may well draw sounds good today as it is a synthesizer, not a sound module fixed. The effects are decent.

I suggest you view these two videos to get an idea of ​​what can be learned when you know how to use a synthesizer.

[b]OVERALL OPINION[/b]

I had Sirius for a year and have been very useful to me. In combination with the Rave-O-Lution 309 of the same brand, a TR-707, a Novation BassStation effects and some hardware (pedal Moog filter, distos Boss, TC reverb, ...)
The Sirius is a great tool, underestimated and misunderstood. In very good condition and well used, you will have to ensure an excellent synth pads and basses or leads on components.
I love this synth. Maybe I would reiterate one occasion.

Quasimidi Sirius
A jester said that was the Quasimidi c Bontempi techno ...
I wish to inform this ignorant that this mark (unfortunately lost) is in the main production studio, electro, techno, hip hop (and yes also like Cypress Hill)
Jean Michel Jarre has, for example a raven, a quasar, a cyber 6, a 309
s not surprising when we know for example that the raven was programmed rhythmic score by Kraftwerk, and Klaus Schulz synthe by .........
So when you have no plan and knowledge on electro, it is silent
Or do you think that kraftwerk and Klaus Schulze are Bontempi of electro??
pioneers yes! Such comments really represents many youth today who are trying to do with techno techno ... techno is done with simple ideas and constructive
a raven + a sirius + ume akai mpc 2000 or even a simple sequencer as beat master and I assure you that you create in one day a good track techno much superior in quality and has a shitty commercial style Ghetta david or other dj 0 , 50 euro cents!

Pentrite's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Quasimidi Sirius
Only two MIDI outputs for 7 shares (bd-snare-hithat synth-perc-3)
Between a carrier and an analysis between the vocoder
Mic (rotten) integrates, but between all the same mic
Sequencer

Programmable polyphonic arpeggiator (only 8 slots)
8 + the classic "up", "down" ...

UTILIZATION

Trs rapid schedule (edit sounds and sequencer) is the strong point!

"Macros" on the envelopes: prrglages ADSR turning one knob
Most are paramtres facade (in fact there are few: the shipping is fast because lgre)
Some other paramtres (mono, modulations, A, D, S and R ,...) indpendants menu

For the sequencer it is possible to assign squence diffrent length of each unit
It is possible to recall gallant on each hand a squence (pattern) that programm adjacent to another piece that can be programmed quickly trs a new song, "kit"!

Perfect for live:-change patterns during playback
-Modify a package of one knob
- "Special loop track" and breaks that can program and assign keys
prvues this
knob assign each one-unit (and the vocoder) and can turn rgler
role volume, pan, send an fx fx send and 2 - trs rare as a track, yet
necessary (one would think a mixer: to put a quick dish or
to live)

SOUNDS

While they are in relation grossires sounds "mlodiques" three tracks synth
more publisher and thin (it is a synthse PCM samples in QQE playing so> there are 128 waveforms for the tracks "mlodiques" sawtooth , square, ..., mellotron, TB, ropes, various samples some limits) but even two oscilloscope waveform for the two ("dtunables" up to 2 octaves)

The drums and bored when they are well supplied in quantity and quality (the samples too)
but I mean when I say electros sound quality (n'sperez play acoustic drums)
The samples of TR 808 and 909 are of much better quality than a mc-303 is still a machine ROLAND (look for the error!)

The vocoder is rotten (10 bands but we believe there are 4 ...) but can be used for anything other than the voice-routing internal (twelve o'clock each unit can be sent in analysis, carrier or
both time and this for all tracks at a time)
Send-fx audio inputs to 1 and 2 (in bypassing the vocoder)
10-band filter units or audio inputs producing a large and well
grunge when pushed (not to master, one is right?!)

The filter is dirty if you wish the rsonance up enough and / or filter-overdrive
Problem: it blocks about 6 KHz! Many filters are numriques problems in the high end, but ... (besides the blocking II SUPERNOVA 12 KHz)
often requires "calm" when you get the rsonance prs of this under penalty of being assaulted violently!

OVERALL OPINION

Perfect for: minimalism, drum n bass, hardcore / Gaber, trance, big beat fawn Prodidgy (first album), fawn house Daft Punk (first album)

Good for beginners as a quick fun way to program +

Trs good for live!

Sounds much like saturated fat and lofi
Filter / vocoder allows for the "big sound that kills" and rhythmic "which t'arrachent the head"
(Exit the "we are the robots")

Do not use if you are looking for the finesse, the presence, the rallisme (acoustic Anloga)
A synth for Kepone!

Quasimidi Sirius
Synth Electro East
Tracks 4 to 7 and 3 for Rhythmic instruments
16 song with 16 pattern
Arpgiateur and Vocoder

UTILIZATION

Instrument conrle live.Uutilisation trs interesting as bote sutout rate in combination with arpgiateur.

SOUNDS

The sounds are typical type synth and not designed for its acoustic rproductions or natural. Sounds pretty aggressive. This is also its charm. Sound control is simple.

OVERALL OPINION

This instrument is not a universal synthesis. I recommend it as with other complment synthtiseurs. I use it especially in the field of improvisation as a rhythmic pace box. CHAC of command is simple and offers a lot of interaction. J'utile insrtion the vocoder as the mixing desk for hard rev sound. For the price it is a good value trs.

A BMOL is against giving the afternoon because the tracks can not receveoir MIDI channel individually adjustable. You can only rgler the machine overall. You rgler THE FIRST track channel 4 for example, the following will be 5,6,7,8,9,10.

Ikkini's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Quasimidi Sirius
The Sirius is a station trs complte with 7 instruments, keyboard 4 octaves, squenceur, vocoder and many potentiomtres.

UTILIZATION

The use is quite enjoyable for synths and rhythm beasts, as well as the vocoder, for against the squenceur is forgotten.

SOUNDS

The sound is trs SPECIFICATIONS, it is unfortunately down on a bank of samples, so no freedom and that is unfortunate. However the vocoder is trs INTERESTED.

OVERALL OPINION

It's a good machine if we apprcie sound, robust and complements. I have long since sold its size and ability taient disabilities.

Quasimidi Sirius
- Track 3 drums (kick / snare / HH) + 1 track percussion instruments that can hold 12 (IDAL to double bass drums, Cais clear ...) + 3 synth tracks (eg pads + bass + lead)
But only one out-stro ... damage

UTILIZATION

Sequencer it is very easy to use but powerful enough
-The arpeggiator is interesting to program
-The machine is perfect for live: the keyboard can mutate / unmute the tracks 7, insert the breaks and the 'special loop tracks'; knob a rotary track for volume, dressings and effect sends. It is also very ais to recall the different rhythmic patterns to change the pattern in real time ... a rgal!

SOUNDS

- Sounds very kind. should the tribe tekno, to hardcore, even psytrance. for the rest bofbof
- Few effects, filters music but not exceptional.
The vocoder-sounding 'rotten' ... I like;)

OVERALL OPINION

I exchanged against a roland sound module through our Audiofanzine prfr ... I am very satisfied!
say that it is suited my use, and became the starting point of all my electronic improvisations:
perfect for finding a good turning, ideal for controlling the drums in real time, very effective for lead acid and bleeding pads ...
in addition to it synchronizes quite well on an external source so it can strengthen the DJ mixes ...
c when the next teknival?

Quasimidi Sirius
Not too bad at the keyboard but the edition, the polyphony is pretty miserable ... QQ strange noise from time to time ...

UTILIZATION

Trs simple because it is very inefficient

SOUNDS

Techno sounds without interest ...

OVERALL OPINION

It's a toy, but not a musical instrument

Quasimidi Sirius
Superb machine, not soft, only MIDI.
Everything can be gr with "Sound Diver."

UTILIZATION

The machine was Designed to perform live.
I think that says it all
<p class="bbcode-offtopic"> Off topic: <span>huhu (Trves jokes.)</span>

Potentiomtres 22, a 49-key keyboard, 70 keys with LEDs and two wheels.
8 potentiomtres assign the tracks, the keyboard can be mapped to play pattern, station wagons or specially magnifiers.
Just with everything, almost all functions are accessible surfaces. Ideal for the LIVE mode.
For you to learn the manual by heart, it is very well done, despite his age he is still on the dumps NEWS twelve o'clock for example.

SOUNDS

The sound is meant to analog, bold desire, and the rhythm part sounds wonderful.
It's a color it pretty clean, quite electronic, but is still diversified trs (roots electro, techno, drum & bass etc.).
The effects are a little leg but enough.
The sound is often saturated output because it is difficult to mastriser with knobs 8 tracks, it lacks an internal compressor, the only output Stereo output should have had eight spares;)
This is the only default

OVERALL OPINION

User, I met people from Quasimidi France in 1998. I purchased the Sirius may from time before the first show of Mix Move. With lights "low frequencies" and old "NRV" (organization tek Paris) I was able to mix and test the synth at the show with the coordination of Quasimidi. The machine has a lot of mules since.
MIDI sync with beat-detection of an external audio source works almost (I know that is not Systm calle a good beat and correctly).
I test this configuration mix + Sirius gnial
The vocoder is simple and powerful trs.
I believe this machine has everything on it, put out by over spares and mastering functions, I will say it to be perfect 2 fingers.
In view of the synth output current, set Apart from seeking a sound, for a diffrent other machines, the ratio quality / price ratio, there is still nothing comparable.
