Thread: Synthesizer Gear Porn ;-)

    The Waldorf STVC definitely intrigues as a Streichfett with a vocoder. Still, my Waldorf microQ works great as a vocoder, but I rarely if ever use that functionality these days.

    Here's a question for the synth hive mind. If you noticed from my live show, I like to use old credit cards and gift cards to hold notes for drone creation purposes. I've found it more flexible than a sustain pedal approach. However, black keys matter.

    Anyone have insight on small weights to use for this purpose?

    This Key Dog product seems designed specifically for holding notes, but they are kinda pricey and a bit large.

    I had an old style stapler with a weighted bottom that was perfect for holding down notes of any sort.

    What I'd like to find is the older rounded weights used in Ye Olde Scales. (commence Internet search)

    Well, duh. Said search reveals those are what I am picturing in my mind. Pretty cheap at Bezosland as well.

    Oh yeah, those would work pretty well I'm sure

    Ah! Key weights! The first time I was in the presence of synths my pal used them to hold down a note on the ARP 2600 keyboard so he could tune and fiddle.

    He used a chromed steel cylinder I have always looked for something similar. But yes a quick solution would be a set of weights for balance scales.

    For some synths there's a built-in solution. Like on my Roland JV/XP synths...just switch the polarity of the sustain pedal, tap it once and boom: instant sustain until you press the pedal again

    Look what Dave Stewart did in Bruford (about 8:30):

    We watched this Saturday. Synth porn indeed.

    Sadly, the weights I picked up were too light. 20g. I may pick up a couple of these as I noted earlier. https://kvgear.com/products/key-dog

    Although Dave Stewart’s are nice.

    I am not surprised. Any weighted keyboard would need something heavy like the one you linked. I want a few too!
