Roland JU-06 and JU-06A "Chain"

Hello,

question for eventual end of quarantine: has anyone tried chaining the two wee Junos (JU-06 and JU-06A) to make an 8 voice critter? What happens?

a) 4 voices to JU-06, 4 voices to JU-06A (as when combining other different boutique modules)

or

b) 8 voices to (JU-06A)?

Thanks for any help, hope y'all are happy

  Do I need a Digitakt?
Posted by: SynthWizard - 1 hour ago - Forum: World Wide Gear News - No Replies

Do I need a Digitakt?

I was considering the Volca Sample, then the Novation Circuit, then the Korg Electribe 2, then the Model:Samples, then the Roland MC101... the list keeps going. But everything I read, watch, listen to online... I can't escape the Digitakt and seems like the only groovebox worth getting under $1000.

I'm mainly interested in time stretching/warping/re-pitching on the fly (some influences at the moment are Aphex Twin, Amon Tobin, Squarepusher, Tessela, Autechre, Burial, Jon Hopkins). I'm not even necessarily looking for something that has the ability to sample. However, I would love something with some polyphony as I really only have monophonic gear right now.

I just can't spend $750 on the Digitakt right now, but I'm wondering if it's worth saving up for, or starting with an alternative like the Model:Samples. Am I wrong? Would it be better to start small and build my way up? Would love any recommendations.

If you couldn't tell, I'm still somewhat of a novice when it comes to hardware, though I've been sampling and synthesizing on Ableton with VST's for years.

Kawai released their KC20 in 1993 to fulfill the need for an affordable synthesizer that is lightweight as well as portable but without skimping on a full 61-key keyboard. It was also designed to be GM-compatible, which meant that it could be used as a sound source for computer music and other applications.

The stand out features of the KC20 for its time was its General MIDI system compatibility as well as the inclusion of both COMPOSE and PERFORMANCE modes. In COMPOSE mode it offers a maximum of 28-voice polyphony, or 16 sections, including drum sections. It makes use of a multi-timbre voice allocation system in order to allow independent play of up to 16 parts. The PERFORMANCE mode offers eight banks of eight patches for a total of 64 patches to store in memory. Frequently used settings can then be called up during live performances with the touch of a button.

The KC20 has a full-sized keyboard and while it offers 61 keys, the depth of the keyboard is 20 cm, which is quite compact. Kawai included 160 high-quality tones with this synth as well as seven drum kits and used an 18-bit digital/analog converter for clear sound quality reproduction.

The KC20 features a pretty standard design with the pitch bend wheel and modulation wheel on the left and the volume slider up top. It also has a 16-character, 2-line LCD for displaying the settings and operations on the KC20. A number of buttons can be found on the top left of the KC20, including ones for accessing the System Edit mode, alternating between the Compose and Performance modes, and for performing octave shifts. The rear panel holds the power switch, DC-in jack, phones jack, Output R/L jacks, and "Hold" jack for connecting damper or sustain pedals. On the back, you'll also find the serial interface jack and serial select switch for selecting the type of computer to which the serial interface is to be connected. Options for the serial select switch include Apple Macintosh, IBM PC/AT, and NEC PC-98 as well as "MIDI" for when the serial interface is not in use. Finally, you'll find the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT jacks on the back.

Overall, the KC20 was a decent keyboard for its time as it was very lightweight and offered a direct PC interface. It didn't excel in any particular area but offered acceptable all-round performance.

The VZ-8M is a 1988 synthesizer by Casio that only lasted a few years until it was discontinued in 1991. It is a 1U-high 19" expander that only offers 8 voices of polyphony, which is half of what the VZ1/VZ10M's have. The VZ-8M makes use of Casio's IPD synthesis, which consists of eight sound modules that can be configured the DCO and DCA each one has. The DCO for each module has eight possible waveforms to draw from instead of relying on traditional sampled or synthesized sounds.

The 128 preset Normal patches and 128 preset Operation memories of the VZ-8M can be expanded with 128 more of each using a ROM card. This card slots into the front panel and you can also save 64 Normal and 64 Operation memories of your own onboard along 64 of each using an RAM card. Also, the VZ-8M features MIDI SysEx so you can transfer the internal memory.

The VZ-8M was of special interest to people who use MIDI guitars and MIDI wind controllers as it includes special modes for both these instruments as well as the more traditional keyboard performance mode. This is no surprise as Casio produced these instruments. The preset sounds feature all the usual electric pianos, electric organs, and other instruments with a bright, digital sound that was common from synths of that time period. Unfortunately, it also means that the sound is very dated and has been surpassed by a lot of other synths in the meantime. The limited polyphony is also an issue, but understandable as Casio appears to have aimed this synth mostly at MIDI guitar and MIDI wind instrument players. Keyboard players, on the other hand, will probably rather want to opt for something with more voices, such as the VZ-10M.

The VZ-8M features a flat black finish while the front panel is anodized brushed aluminum. It includes a rotary Volume knob, card slot, headphone socket, the power on/off switch and 24 switches. One of the downsides of the Casio VZ-8M is that programming can be a really tedious process. The 2x16-character LCD is extremely small and even though it is backlit, it is very hard to read anything on it unless you are looking at it from the right angle. This, in conjunction with the limited amount of buttons, makes for a frustrating experience, so editing via a computer is highly recommended. The rear panel holds the MIDI In/Out/Thru sockets, left and right audio outputs and mains connector.

Despite its limitations, the VZ-8M was pretty powerful for its day and could deliver very unique sounds. However, these days the VZ-10M with its 16-note polyphony and larger LCD is a better option or even the VZ1 if you want a keyboard with the synth.

Casio released the XW-PD1 in 2015 and while it looks like a toy version of the Millenium Falcon from Star Wars, it is actually an all-in-one machine aimed at synth fans. Packed into its surprisingly compact body you'll find a synthesizer, sequencer, sampler, effects, as well as speaker and batteries for music creation on the go. The idea with the XW-PD1 was that users could build rhythms with ease and also quickly compose melodies with it.

The circular design of the XW-PD1 feels a little odd at first, but the layout actually makes sense. The left side of the device is dedicated to the selector panel where you will find things like the Power button, Step button, as well as Bank and Pattern button. Here you'll also find a small LCD. Above these are the Mix Fader, while below the selector panel there is an assignable fader. Finally, the Value knob, Volume knob, as well as FX1 and FX2 knobs can be found on the left side of the device. The entire rounded right-hand side of the XW-PD1 is dedicated to the sequence step keys and pads. The sequence step keys are laid out in a circular ring with the velocity-sensitive pads arranged in a four by four grid in the middle. The rear of the XW-PD1 is dedicated to a USB port, Line In terminal, Mic In terminal, Mic Volume knob, Line out L/R terminals, Phones terminals, and DC 9.5V terminal. The battery compartment, as well as the speaker, can be found at the bottom of the XW-PD1.

The XW-PD1 can be used to program your rhythms using its sequencer before adding things like basslines and melodies via the pads. Alternatively, you can use an external source to input audio and then use samples or effects on top. To get you started with programming your beats, Casio has included four banks of samples with the XW-PD1. Of course, you can also use your own samples, which can be imported using the data editor. For more expressive performances the XW-PD1 comes with 200 different effects.

The XW-PD1 can be used as a MIDI controller and has a very eye-catching design, but the real fun comes from using your own samples to create unique jams. It's very easy to use and actually a lot more compact than it looks. The inclusion of a lot of synth options also makes it very versatile.
