My "new" Donkey Kong!
#255292 - 05/23/11 03:27 PM Attachment: DSCN0463.JPG 2537 KB (2 downloads)


Picked it up this weekend at a garage sale. $75. Described as not working, but with one splice of a speaker cable I got it working in about 10 minutes! Some body damage and it needs some monitor work, but it was $75! This is my first cabinet. Wish me luck in the restoration!

I'm sure we will! This is my youngest, 8 months. My 5 year old was super excited. Then he played it, got frustrated and went back inside to play Lego Star Wars on the Wii. He'll come around. Maybe I'll let him take it to college with him and make enough off of it for beer and pizza money!

Ahh. Yeah. Not anywhere near my favorite of theirs, though. Anyways....um....no, nit. I enjoy certain quality of thought, speech, and movement. Others are welcome to adopt mine, craft their own, etc.

The Rush song kind of reminded me of this:


Kickass tune...the bass synth sounds like some bad, gritty 8-bit sample..funky.

Sure sounds like OB-something to me.. who knows.

Could be almost anything analog with filters - my default in cases like that is to assume Minimoog, although parts of the bassline suggest it might have been a Roland x0x (maybe even a TB-303, just programmed a lot more subtly than the techno guys did in the 90s).

The album where the song is from was released in 1979, the 303 is from the 80's I think.

It could also be a real bass with some kind of sick envelope filter/bass synth effect pedal.

Anyway whatever it is I love the sound it makes. It sounds like its about to come out of the speaker and bite you in the face.

LOL cool, what the hell is that?

/EDIT

Oh got it, it's an Emax. I met its forefather once. I remember loading a piano sound from a bunch of 5,25 floppies taking an aggravatingly long time. There are youtube videos of people loading sounds on those things using flash memory to floppy adapters now.

Does it have a CPU? Have you dumped the ROMs for MESS? They emulate synths too.

Not really sure what is under the hood, it's so heavy I've never turned it over to crack the case. Powerful little thing for its time. Did a truckload of processing for so few buttons and such a small LCD.

I'll have to find a torrent of disks, all mine appear to be shot....even my precious house samples....

Phil Bennett's been taunting us on and off with screenshots of a working Fairlight driver. Anything with a floppy drive almost certainly has a CPU and ROMs.

I might be hearing it more accurately than you, yes. Of course, I can hear the 'vowels' in pretty much any timbre. ...I've always found it funny the terms of 'heaviness' that synth folks use....

And, for something in an 'odd' meter (well, at least the first movement) that is far more interesting than the Bruford.

That was one of those concepts that seemed obvious at the dawn of sampling but quickly proved to be fairly useless

(Mogli will now reply and claim he can draw the correct waveforms for 300 instruments with a light pen ;-)

PAWHH. Dude, your prescience flabbergasts me! No, actually, I haven't done that much with electronics and software. Mostly music theory, and lots of listening and extra-curricular reading.

I kinda had an idea that drawing waveforms would at best be tricky getting usable timbres....but, thinking about it, I suppose you could....with a lot of resolution (in software, and in yourself), and time. Seems much more of an 'artistic' effort.

Pierre Boulez and his successors may have the ability to do that, though.
