True :mrgreen:

I was just thinking you can't get a really good DOING sound if the springs are attached to something solid like that, but yeah, I suppose you need an input too, if you like that kind of thing :chin:
I think trying to quantify music is one of the biggest wastes of time in the world, like discussing your favourite colour or deity or pizza topping. People should realise that and get on with their life.

Yeah I just meant in order for it to be a "reverb" but it would also need a few other electronics..

I suppose one could always detach the end of one of the springs for a BOING sound but yeah seems a bit overpriced.. I was selling 4way bitchboxes for less and they came with far more parts... :lol:

*spring update*

Found a cheaper alternative that seems to do the same thing. A second hand one is currently £70 which seems more reasonable to me.

Plus as already stated I suck at soldering so unless anyone here wants to make me one I might go for it

I have it, it's a cool sound source. But beware that the springs are tuned and produce a note when plucked so if you want something more noisy you might want to replace the springs or buy something else.

Buy a guitar, put springs on it. Probably cheaper, infinitely more usable, someone posted theirs earlier. You just need to be able to use a screwdriver, or a hammer and nails. Look at this bass with springs on.

I want a Mel9, but I can only reasonably afford a Mel5 right now.

Anyway, the last thing I bought was another Yamaha PSS-480. I traded the first one I owned several years ago, and for some reason decided I needed to own one again. My recording/noisemaking gear is all in perpetually-frozen flux, so I've been playing mostly with that. I've been creating patches and documenting them in a spreadsheet file, but I stupidly forgot to document which patches I was editing from, so it's anyone's guess how to properly recreate them all. Anyway, despite its limitations, when you use your imagination, it's capable of beautiful things. I don't mean imagination in terms of "programming" but in how you receive/visualize the sounds this very limited 2-Op synth produces. It's made me incredibly happy at times.

Re: Yamaha PSS-XXX

I learned about the mono mode recently, looking into the synth before I bought it. It's handy, but a bit of a hassle to instigate (I still haven't memorized the procedure).

Anyway, I would really like to get a PSS-380. My household had one when I was no older than 6-7, and I have some key (no pun intended) memories attached to that specific model. Nostalgia is a sick thing. I only wish the 380 had MIDI, because I can't play for shit manually, and I prefer to have my hands free for tweaking knobs/sliders, whether I'm sequencing rudimentary songs or trying to make noise.

I don't think I ever used the 380's synth section as a kid. It was surely beyond my understanding. I mostly really like a particular accompaniment track on it. For some reason, it evoked images of my grandma and me smiling on a roller coaster (something which never happened; Also, my grandma was a cunt).
