maybe get some mopad matts i just invested in those to stop the resonation. I cant imagine you getting a good ear of sound where they are thats all, though i may be wrong. go the handy man repairs, even pull your desk out if needed get some stands bud (-;

Edit: already on stands lol - shift them back pull your desk out then.

Killer setup, btw!!!

You'll never believe it... a $10 Fellowes Booklift Copyholder and a rubber sheet underneath to keep it from sliding/scratching the synth.



it's leaning against the desk - giving it extra sturdiness. Otherwise it wouldn't be much useful, as by itself it's somewhat flimsy...

thanks!

That same idea crossed my mind once or twice! Is it pretty stable - stable enough that it doesn't bounce around when you're punching in drum patterns?

edit: nevermind - I just saw your edit regarding the flimsiness!

p.s. I think I sorta cyber-drooled all over your Jup-8 and Elka - sorry about that.

Yeah, it's a shame - they need to come up with some sort of rack mounting kit and it'd be nice if they had a tilted LCD.

Here's another idea - have you tried using a laptop stand? that may work. There are tons of them and they are pretty sturdy.

and don't worry - I real-life-drool on them. If it makes you feel any better - neither one has MIDI, which really pisses me off because I wish I could hook them up for some awesome exchange of arp/sequencer patterns. While there's a kit for JP, the one for Synthex is even rarer than synth itself.

How long have you had the Synthex? Had any issues with it?

Nice setup. Makes me miss some of my old monster analog polys. Those aren't quite as easy to sneak in as say, my Buchla system. At least my fiance thinks the 200e and my other modulars were cheaper than any of my keyboards

Hmm... I got my first synth about 10 years ago - it was an XP60... The Synthex - I hunted for one for about 5 years. At first, I saw few that went for $1800 and I thought it was crazy to pay that much. LOL Then, I saw them climb to $2400 and I was concerned. The next nice one was in France and it had MIDI and it sold for $3300 - I couldn't afford it at the time, even though I already accepted the fact that I'd never see one at that price again.

The one I had initially was listed on ebay a year ago, guy was asking $12,000. Yes. $12,000. Why? It is the very first synthex ever made - prototype. Has no serial, no synthex emblem up front and uses different set of Curtis chips, sounding quite different from the the other that succeded it. I spoke with the seller, who was in Greece about reducing his expectations and price but he wasn't ready to sell at that time.

I then waited for a year, ebay search running. One day, long after my search expired, I started googling synthex in hopes of finding some info and saw an ebay add pop up - this was same synth, same guy still selling it. Although, this time around price was $4000 and no reserve. I called him and convinced him to end the auction early - he agreed at... the asking price! $4000. NOw the challenge came - getting it to US. Took about a month, lots of calls, headache, and over $1200 in shipping costs. Finally, it arrived... but DOA. Another month looking for a repair shop - lucked out with EARS in NYC (highly recommended, btw). drove the synth there, another 4 weeks and I had a fully functioning Synthex, converted for US power. Drove it home and... it was again, DOA! Luckily, the time I spent online reading about synthex was not all in vein - I cracked the top open and re-seated the voice cards and BAM! It made the most amazing sound I ever wanted to hear

I've since played with it very little, taking care not to over use it. It is trully fantastic synth but I only have one issue - the sequencer, when activated, for some unknown reason transposes split section by +1. So, I've yet to fix that. Total cost - about $6300... if I was smarter, I would have bought it first time I saw one. but such is life... I personally don't regret it, even though it was darn expensive.

Jupiter 8 - thats my 3rd one. First one was DCB model with a converter, I sort of regret selling it cause I could have hooked it up to MIDI. I was jonesin for JP8 so, bought the 2nd one shortly thereafter. The 2nd was gorgeous:

but I had to fix it several times to the tune of $700 each time. At which point I couldn't afford to fix it anymore and had to sell before it broke again. If it wasn't for Armin's repair shop in NYC (STAY AWAY!) JP would have remained mostly flawless but his shop scratched the shit out of it, reducing it's value. In hind sight, itw as a bad choice to go there and I'll never go there again - it's a fucking dump and he's a fucking con artist, definitely not trust-worthy. I wouldn't trust him with my $20 casio anymore.

Anyway, I sold the 2nd one and was really regretting it. Again, by pure chance I found one in Rhode Island, about 350 miles away. I had to beg borrow and steal to get the money to pay for it - $5000 - yes, crazy I know.. but the synth is as flawless as they get, even more pristine than my 2nd one (knock knock knock). Even though it's first gen and it starts to drift every 15 minutes, it's still an amzazing synth in an unbelievable shape. So, my supermodels are my pride and joy and are part of the family now
