  • Peavey KB3

    Peavey KB3 - "Channel 1 & 2 have much lower volume that Channel 3?"

    02/01/18

    I am testing out a new Peavey KB3 60W speaker/amp. i noticed that Inputs CH1 and CH2 have a much softer volume than when I use CH3? CH3 really cranks and has power to it with the MIC and guitar/keyboards; however when I plug in the keys or guitar i…

  • Elektron Digitakt

    Elektron Digitakt - "Digitakt – a limited, yet boundless product"

    02/01/18

    For which specific applications or uses have you chosen this product? I play IDM electronic music, and I chose this device as I was after a small mobile studio without having to sacrifice functionalities, so I don’t use it either to complement …

  • Yamaha PSS-170

    Yamaha PSS-170 - "Great sound in a toy keyboard"

    01/29/18

    This keyboard is definitely for a beginner player, yet it has some great features compared to other PSS keyboards. It is polyphonic up to 8keys, which is all dependent on which sounds and effects are used. Some of the organ sounds can be used to up t…

  • Dave Smith Instruments OB-6

    Dave Smith Instruments OB-6 - "Classic and modern in the same time..."

    01/20/18

    I've received a request to post a review after I updated my gear list, which I consider all the more normal on a community website like this. First, I must say I’ve only owned the OB-6 for 4 days so far, which is of course too short to have an exhau…

  • Roland TR-09

    Roland TR-09 - "A poor musician’s 909 ?" has images

    12/26/17

    I’ve played house for a while now, and i’m a great fan of the TR909 sound, to the extent that almost all my tracks contain at least one Roland instrument. Unable to buy a 909 due to its incredibly high price, I was excited when the TR09 was announce…

  • Squarp Instruments Pyramid

    Squarp Instruments Pyramid - "Squarp Pyramid, or how to get rid of your computer!"

    12/26/17

    I’ve used it for a few months now for electro/hip-hop prods in a home studio, and soon in a live context where it will control an Arturia Minibrute, a Moog Sub Phatty, a Korg Minilogue, an Elektron Rytm and an MPC 2500 XL. I control the sunths using …

  • Arturia DrumBrute

    I use it in my home studio which is (temporarily) deprived of my pc. The machine’s qhality is very good (I suppose Arturia change dits Chinese supplier ^^) The knobs are very nice, the pads are pleasant and the ribbon controller is really coll.…

  • Dreadbox Erebus

    Dreadbox Erebus - "A real chameleon with a vintage, mellow sound"

    12/08/17

    The Dreadbox Erebus is a very interesting synth hailing from… Greece! It’s a monophonic/paraphonic, 2-voice and semi modular model. Granted, its look is quite peculiar but I really like it, plus it seems sturdy. It’s a rather basic memoryless syn…

  • Roland D-05

    Roland D-05 - "The D-50 was my all time favorite keyboard, the D-05 reminds me why"

    11/25/17

    I've never thought much about the boutique series, especially since they're only 4 voice, although I'd consider one of the Juno models. Anyway, when I saw the re-issue of the D-50 I was very excited. I was stuck using samples in a NI player app. M…
