ARP Solus arrived yesterday at 3:30pm... Had it all working by 6:45pm excited

Not quite as versatile as the Oddy, but still sounds great, and apart from not being able to modulate VCO 1 on it's own (I've a few modifications ready to go) it can do Billy's lead with no problem smile

Can you send me one too (jouni@salo.bz)?

I just got Oddity on my mac and I'm looking for a decent midi controller keyboard. Any recommendations?

I contacted Jouni offline and shared that Billy was using a Novation Remote SL Compact 49 to control most of his leads.

Midge was using the Novation SL 61 as his main board.

Hi guys (first post)

Could I ask very nicely if someone could share either a patch sheet or an oddity preset (or both, different attempts and views are helpful) for that classic billy currie lead?

I can't believe I only just found this forum...

Jesper has very kindly already sent me his patch sheet, but I wonder if anyone has an oddity preset knocking around?

Bah, still nowhere near the sound - It would help if i had an idea of what it sounded like pre-fx, so far i've only heard the performances - I dont know just how much work the FX do.

Has anyone got any examples of what it should sound like before you put it through distortion/flanger?

Earlier in this thread = 4 YEARS ago... Excuse me but I can't remember what I was doing YESTERDAY!

Probably don't have it unfortunately - I lost most of my emails 2 years ago.

So Mr Jesper - why don't you still have it?!!! :p

Hehehehehe...okay okay okay then Mr Phil..you are forgiven! biglaugh wink

I don`t have it anymore myself because I sold
my Oddity some time ago.

Regarding the lead sound. My opinion is that
the FX (overdrive/distortion/flanger) doesn`t
give that "Oh My God Big Difference" - it adds
some drive, bite and colour to the sound.
And I don`t think that you absolutely have to use the flanger.
Through the years Ive tried to program that
lead sound on several hardware synths I had
- I always came close, but it was never there 100%. When I finally made it on the Oddity, the result was really close. I guess what Im trying to say is, that if you want that 100% authentic
lead sound then your best bet actually is the
Oddity (it`s pretty much better than the Prodyssey if you ask me).....or get an ARP.
I know that Andy (MosLotion) who is THE Arp
Expert here, and one of the best in the world,
got a lot of praise for the Alesis Micron/Ion
when talking about the leadsound emulation.
Ive never tried it myself.

Spent a while trying to get this with my Odyssey and a Line 6 Pod last night. Came away frustrated.

Pah. Will try again today but, in the mean time, any patch sheets would be appreciated.

Thanks
David

Did we lose a bunch of posts from this thread when the site was rebuilt? I know I got this patch sheet from here.
