VSS-30 is my favorite porta keyboard! It handles LTC's so well, I havn't had any desire to mod it past that, yet. That opinion may change if I had a CS01 though haha :omg:

I had to search up LTC. Linear Time Code? Which means.. the sampling sounds good? I'd definitely agree with that. Opened it up to fix a dead key (success) but didn't take out the main boards to have a closer look. Not gonna try and bend it, but adding CV would be cool.

Ahh sorry, LTC is an oscillator/clock. Allows for quite a few added functions on keyboards like these. Most popularly, pitching shifting via clock speed change. Really opens the range and makes the VSS30 an amazing lo-fi pad machine.

Oh, so kinda how the samples are double speed when played back an octave up? I'm looking at the LTC1799 datasheet now, interesting chip! "Accurate frequencies up to 20MHz ... are attainable", seems crazy. Of course that's beside the point here, but yeah the lo-fi quality is awesome and has that high frequency 8-bit hash I guess, that's never unpleasant. I'm running it on batteries right now because it didn't like the CS01's 12v power supply... it caused some hum, although it says 9-12v next to the power jack. Do you know if giving the VSS30 9v is better? I'm reading in the datasheet now that a switching PS may cause the 1799 problems, so maybe that's it, just needs to be regulated.

fcknoise, I will bring it to Oslo if I end up going!

That was actually really cool. Such a weird song, but that was a great cover!

Local artist/work friend Daniel Fleming came over to my house and took some art/processed photos of my rig. This one was my fave.

I got a synth. Never owned one before.

I can't play much yet, but I can say mean things about my girlfriend and/or cats and play them back in a robot voice as a chord. That's what everyone else uses vocoders for, right?

I was unfamiliar with the R3, but it seems to be a pretty competent piece and I imagine it certainly is the step up from the microK XL it claims to be. I'd be interested to mess with one! I bet it will take you far into your synth needs.

Yeah, I was looking at both the MK and the MKXL and some folks on a synth Reddit page suggested that the R3 is the best of the 3.

I've played an MK and I dig it, except for the child size keys. I certainly prefer the feel of the R3 in that respect. Only downside so far is that it doesn't seem to have anywhere near the same size community as the MK. There's millions of custom patches and videos of stuff people have done with their MK to use as inspiration. Lots of sharing of sounds and ideas. There's nowhere near the same amount for the R3 as far as I can see, so I'm sort of on my own figuring it all out. Sounds pretty cool so far though. It has all the synth sounds I expected it to have, and it seems capable of a great deal more.
