I finally got it, it has an amazing clarity!

For now I connected it to a pair of Van Damme XLR cables to the Neumann KH120. My girlfriend thought that I was using a 5.1 audio system, because the separation, stereo image and clarity revealed a load of layers, that was lost in my old system.

I'm still pondering if I buy the Adams A77x or something else, tho..

I've ditched the deal with mutronics. I have more important things to purchase now, but I will keep an eye on the T-Resonator when it's time. Thanks for the tips.

I never erase my presets on synths Ive sold and it has never increase the final sale price....I just dont understand why ???.... ;D

Because none of you have star status? :P

Yep it's confirmed, they didn't erased his presets, this is from another sale:

Nord Rack 2

'This 16-voice Nord Rack 2 was sold in the last auction untested and is now up for sale again, tested and actually at VEMIA. It comes from the late Pete Namlook's studio, and we believe it still has a load of his programs in it - some very smooth and creamy, and some pretty gnarly. A very powerful machine, with a huge amount of control / morph / modulate possibilities. The manual is available at - and although some things are intuitive, there is such a lot in this machine that the manual is pretty useful - actually essential to get the most out of it! It has its rack ears, but is missing the screws. In excellent cosmetic condition.'

Seems someone is forking some cash from Pete's synths... Life sucks.

Maybe it's not just a Nordlead, maybe his presets are still there?

If someone got into your V-Synth with your presets and sounds, would it be just a V-Synth or a 'Special Tomas Weiss V-Synth' ? :P

Well if for some reason I don't like it, rare gear it's easy to sell and profit?

Currently I'm finishing the last 5% of my setup :P I'm not rich so I have to buy things slowly while doing my daytime job, the good thing is my daytime job is creative. Thanks for your interest.

Frankly I'm eager to finish it, it's cumbersome to deal in the second hand market...

I had to be really creative with words... I could write a book by now about some weird deals and people.

Hi all,

So a guy in my country has this piece of gear for sale. It's a rare analog filter, 1000 units were made, but is this filter good for ambient?

WOW, sad to hear, and so young....he is what I will be in < 2 wks for age....I better eat my veggies! j/k. Sad news indeed and I am sure he will be missed. My condolences to his family.

I think anything by Robert Rich is overrated. I admit that he is technically very good and he knows his shits, but I don't know, I feel he is using the same formula over and over again, I don't feel a connection with his albums, maybe I just don't like steel guitars and PVC flutes.

I think it will be a big step forward compared with my jurassic audio setup...

It's not high end, but for the purpose it's ok.

I got my Andromeda in 2006 and sold it last year......I created many amazing patches on the synth over the years, yet most of them were hard come by.  My relationship with the Andromeda was very much a love hate thing which was based on the user interface not the sound.  The Andromeda, for me, was not enjoyable to program.    As to the type of has the Moog and Oberheim style filters but those are names and do little to suggest the sonic capabilities of this synth and actually sounds nothing like either of those.  It has a unique voice of its own....ok 16 voices and though I was often at odds with the Andromeda it was definitely "Worth the Effort"

The owner says the same thing.
If the andromeda had 1 function per knob the size would be of a train.

He seems to prefer his Waldorf Q for programming. At least he was honest mentioning this...

"Micro-changes in air density"

And another one:

Yeah 500 euros should do it for a proper job.

I found this WIP picture from the guy that modded his andromeda:

Now you got me thinking how much money would it take to mod the andromeda to the moog layout, I can quote a synth technician here. I think he can do it if I provide the wood parts.

Yes, there are about 4 or 5 with that panel in the world, it was a prototype panel, that Alesis declined, this one doesn't have that moog layout, it's horizontal.

The panel is the same (function wise) but it has a dark blue design instead the techno rave silver shit design of the regular one :)

Check the photo it's the one he's selling.

I'm thinking of buying it, also because it's a special version with a custom panel made by Axel Hartmann, it will certainly increase more it's value than the regular one:

He was also selling the Waldorf Q but I got another deal involving a dark blue full rack for half the price:
