    • So if I were a modern day synth manufacturer, and I hope to sell my synth to many buyers, it makes sense to me to name my synth something would-be buyers are familiar with and have positive associations with.  So I can understand why Roland rebrands "Jupiter" and Korg rebrands "M1".   It also makes sense to me that music producers will call for the same sounds that made up other previously successful songs: it should be no surprise that a modern synths will have lots of sounds that were famous from earlier hits.   We see the same thing in the move business: lots and lots of remakes and sequels to hit movies, and only rare attempts to go outside the box.  And for the same reason: the ticket-buying public wants more of what it already likes, and it is more difficult (and too often less profitable) to risk a new thing that the public might reject.    Unlike the guitar - which will always make sound by amplifying the vibrations of strings - modern synths employ a large variety of mechanisms to make sounds: analog control voltages, sampling, digital modeling, frequency modulation, additive and subtractive synthesis, and so on.  A better analogy would be if guitars started to include strings and pickups, AND a mouth-piece and folded tubing to produce standing waves for sound production.   I am not really bothered by names that get recycled or modern synths that have lots of "old" sounds among the patches.  I am surprised that guitarists never got excited about using synthesizers the way keyboard players have.  Obviously, the excitement of keyboard players for synthesizers drove a lot of synthesizer development in keyboard-friendly ways; guitarists ignored synthesizers and synth manufacturers largely ignored guitarists.
    • Anybody have any suggestions about synth sounds for Robert Plants In The Mood? I know the original keyboardist was Jezz Woodruffe and he use Jupiter 8 keys. I’ve been searching high and low and can’t find much. I’ve been working with my Arturia Jupiter 8 but keep coming up empty.
    • Mac/PC have demo version. Even if your goal is to use it on iOS, you could demo it using the Mac/PC version.
    • Looking at something similar for our band.    Getting everyone up to speed with the right tech and how to use it can be a challenge. An alternative approach is to nominate someone in your band as the IEM tech. This means only one person to liaise with the main sound engineer and get something working. They will appreciate that.   It is likely that there won't be enough time for a solitary sound guy to go round the whole band as well as sorting the front of house. One of the band will have more time (usually). It is also easier for the rest of the band to talk to someone with them on stage to make a change , not find someone who is currently running around the venue looking for something else.    Me looking after IEMs will mean it is more likely the rest of the band will come on board and be prepared to give it a go. They also will be much less stressed on the night not having to fight with unfamiliar tech in order to have a hope of hearing themselves. 
    • Blodwyn Pig definitely sounds like a band worth checking out, especially with Mick Abrahams' unique guitar style and background. Thanks for the recommendation!

    • And I just tested it, unfortunately it's not working like that, a bit sad, that would have been intelligent!
    • I have one of these, the 2408, since a couple of years, but never really used the AUXes, do you guys have any idea how AUX 3 and 4 are dealt with on the stereo channels? Can the "musician mix" outputs be used for actually sending stereo signal from a stereo channel on either of AUX 3 or 4, using a TRS cable, and by this actually being able to feed a stereo effect with actual stereo signal?   I could try this of course, but after reading this review I figured I'd throw this out to start with!      
    • Yes, the three synth engines are freely assignable to the fixed splits.
