Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Antelope Audio Zen

What do you guys think of this?

Antelope Audio Zen Studio - Musikmesse 2014

Yeah, but it's not really a matrix 12 right? ;)

I know a very good technician here, he fixed the 4 voice version, I'm not scared when it comes to vintage, especially with his backup.

What in life is not a time bomb, eh?

I wouldn't buy that matrix 12 too, I haven't the right skills yet, but IMO cooling the lust with other synths/substitutes is not the way to go, if you want the matrix or the xpander then grab the matrix or the xpander :) the more you spend on other stuff the more further away you will be from the original goal (use this method for other stuff in life) ahaha

My two cents.


The 2 voice and 4 voice synths are still in production.



This is the one he repaired:

Hey I'm just quoting what you said:


I am more interested in how it compare with Oberheim Xpander for instance.



My conclusion is that none of your options compare to an xpander or matrix 12 and that's the whole point of this discussion.

Here's one for you:

The price of a car.




Yeah I like Steve Roach a lot.

I have a classic Lexicon PCM-70 in mint condition, it was a great deal. I want to use this reverb unit with an analog synth, I'm still looking for one too, because all my stuff is digital, but unlike you I don't have a problem with digital, so I'm just looking for an analog to complement my setup.


I like both digital and analogue, I think always that hybrid is the best, to get both of best worlds..
 Would love to try the Analogue keys with my effects and setup..I know it will sound totally different from the sound demos..

And regarding Xpander and Matrix 12.. the Matrix 12 is supposed to sound much fatter then the xpander..but the matrix 12 is impossible to find almost.. and if you find it it is always a risky investment since must of these units are living on overtime..  Loren Nerell know this better but I know the PSU is breaking down on many of the units..stay away from the Japanese models they have a higher fail rate.

If it plays on the radio is not a good sign, except if it's ambient related, we have some of that here in my country, it was magical because it was ambient but theme based, like ex, hey let's make a theme about Franz Kafka and put some ambient that goes well with the ''Process''. Pure awesomeness.

87
Or any synth will sound cool with reverb :)

88
So a sub 37 with reverb will sound cool.

90
Yeah, it's hard to compare those sounds with an xpander. Xpander + Matrix 12 are the f... holy grail of synths for ambient.

My two cents.

91
Yeah the moog is paraphonic, but I don't know if that's a problem for drone music making, when pressing a single key is enough. Seems they will release polyphonic SP next years.

The demos of the analog keys aren't good enough to judge the synth capabilities. Would be cool to watch a demo of some pads and some ambient making, instead of some hipster shit.

92
How this compares to the new sub phatty? it's the same price range.

My main concern with second hand audio gear, is excessive wear, especially when it comes to motorized faders. I don't want to make you feel I'm a nuisance but it's an important investment for years to come, and prefer to make questions now, than to be sorry at a later time.

I live in Sweden but I buy a lot from Germany cause it is cheaper.

Alright I understand now, but the price difference for the yamaha and the x32 compact is only 200 dollars, considering your threshold  for me the choice would had been easy.

http://www.thomann.de/de/behringer_x_32_compact.htm

well, it exist good solutions with all in one units,  Prism audio have some good products..for instance..but they are expensive... I myself have the Antelope Eclipse, which is basically 3 products in one too..

hmm the DM 1000 doesn't that cost like 6000 EUR ? your budget suddenly changed ?


Behringer is a shit, sorry, I hate that shitty company, please don't recommend me their crap, because I had bad experiences with them in the past.

No, the budget is the same, considering second hand DM 1000 from a studio selling it here.

Thanks again Immersion.

Yes, I have a lot of sources, 6 synths, some with multiple outputs, the scenario is live layered recording.

I live in europe, a second hand andromeda can cost around 3000 euros (USD 4000), here technology is expensive.
So I don't need high end ssl gear, the best output I have is from my Roland V-Synth.

That yamaha costs here around 1980 euros (USD 2700) and yes, for the features it can't be beaten... the only thing that would piss me, is if they release a new product soon.
Yes I want all that functionality, for me it doesn't make sense, to buy 3 pieces of hardware, If I can can buy one that sum the 3 and it's integrated.

And the yamaha DM-1000? a better choice?

also, what kind of pre amps are you planing to use both your mics and the xpander needs a pre amp.
Also are you sure about the xpander have you try it or do you own it already ?
sorry if I have not been reading the whole thread...I had the Xpander for a while  I decided to sell it.
It is not the the first thing I would spend the money.. in a new studio.

That mixer have preamps based on some reviews they seem pretty good, again, in that price range.

Well I don't have any analog gear so far, so my first option is the moog sub 37, I want to check the differences against digital VA equipment, i'm making it part of my studies.

Purchasing an Xpander depends on a lot of factors, luck, budget and overall shape of the gear. So let's see if I get an opportunity in the future.

Thanks for your input Immersion.

I don't have high end sources, so that ssl piece of gear, is out of my budget :)

If you check my synth list, you won't see an andromeda, matrix 12 or a JB solaris.

I would pay 3k for a mixer if it was better than the yamaha 01v96i... But I didn't found one, any tips?

People mention the presonus, but IMO it's not comparable to the yamaha...

Thanks Tomas.

Any good recommendation in the 500 euros price range? 1000 it's a bit steep for a mic.
