The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Re: Microtonal Tuning for Rhodes?
« on: October 08, 2017, 10:42:16 AM »
you could also try EHX Ring Thing with an expression pedal.

Nice music and a good moment with a MkII Rhodes, but the bad guy of the show plays it!

Hi Guys,
My favorite phaser is the ehx stereo polyphase, the smooth sound of the small stone, but with many more possibilities to adjust the effect to what you like.
Here's a link for Maestro Lovers:

I brought an amp that needed some fixing to this guy, he's very good.
I think you can buy this pedal in The US(Heptode is near Paris...Where I live)

hey chris,
i tried many delay pedals and love the "diamond memory lane jr" for its very clean, clear, (and yet fat) sound, and how easy it is to use.the modulation on it is really beautiful too.
for "dirty" repeats i use a "malekko echo 600(B)", which i also really like very much.
these two stompboxes are on my board, always ready for the rhodes.

i also use a "catalinbread montavillian" for my moog synth, really nice, can be both subtle or omnipresent, and with a tone settings for the repeats, which allows you to have many differents moods....

you should try to put the wah first ;)

Thanks! it was really fun to record this, though programming drums can be a real pain.
I have a few other tunes to record, and hopefully will bring themon stage with real human musicians...

Here are a few mini sound clips with ehx stereo polyphase(which i use in mono...)

http://soundcloud.com/jean-pa/ehx-polyphase/s-Ll9Lk

I've tried many phasers and this one i like the most

I love the pure sound of the Rhodes, but also want/need to add effects on it...
I've tried many stompboxes, and am happy now with this:

1)Near Feet:
Wahzoo
Germanium 4 Big Muff
Stereo Polyphase
Malekko Echo600 B

2)Near Hands:
Diamond MLJr
MXR M-134 Chorus
MXR M-159 Tremolo/Pan
Boss DD7
TC Hall of Fame

The 2 other stompboxes on the photos are for a slimphatty...

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Re: 2 keyboards above the Rhodes

very cheap and easy:

i put velcro on it, and on the bottom of a small synth, and it's ok.

Other Keyboards & Software Synths / Re: to moog or not to moog
« on: September 23, 2013, 04:11:15 AM »
thanks again for your suggestions and helpful informations.
i tried a tetra and didn't like it(though i really wanted to like it too)
i tried a little phatty (1st version) this weekend, and really liked it.(very much)
so i'm about to go for the slim phatty, and control it with a 61 keys masterkeyboard.
i'll come back here with my first impressions soon!

Other Keyboards & Software Synths / Re: to moog or not to moog

thanks for your answer, and for your questions!

-i don't need any audio input
-the midi/usb thing can be convenient to edit sounds, right?but not a priority for me.
-i really go for a monophonic synth(and tried a mopho and didn't like it, cause i found it too "agressive"(but maybe i just didn't manage to make it smoother)
-number of keys are very important to me, and that's why it doesn't really matter to me( :o) cause i could buy a desktop synth, or a 25 keys synth, and control it with a midi keyboard.
-for the moment i have a little mixer (mackie 402vlz3), i plug rhodes and synth and then it goes to 2 guitar amps (zt amps the club), or in the sound engineer mixer.
-i have no problem with buying used stuff, if it's in good conditions of course
-it is for gigging, absolutely yes
-i'm looking primarily for leads, but will play some bass too

i've seen a few demos of the novation bass station2, but not sure about the way it would sound for leads, i've tried the mopho and didn't like it, and the plug-in host i have (plugiator)...well...it's a plug-in host...but i'll keep it for pads and/or small gigs.
the minibrute seemed fine too, but no presets!
so back to the slimphatty(or subphatty, but i prefer to have no keys than 25, and it's more expensive, and there are some slim phattys on the used market...)

thanks for the advice about oscillators stability

Other Keyboards & Software Synths / to moog or not to moog
« on: September 21, 2013, 01:47:36 AM »
hi,
i'd like to have a better (and analog) synth on my rhodes,i had a "use audio plugiator", and a "eowave domino", both very different but nice in their own way.
i love the moog sounds(who doesn't?), especially for its possibility to get sweet, soft but fat leads, and i think i'd go for the slimphatty, the cheapest of all, but the only one i can afford now...
does anyone here have any suggestions?

The Fender Rhodes Electric Piano / Re: My new Rhodes cover
« on: September 03, 2013, 06:12:45 AM »
it's so nice and sweet, it would need another cover to cover the cover :D

16
I'd go with the yamaha p90 or p80, they have a good piano sound and a more realistic touch response than many other "light" keyboards, i had a p90 that i liked very much when i had to be far from my accoustic piano...

Amps, Effects & Recording Techniques / diamond memory lane jr
« on: December 22, 2012, 04:05:05 AM »
very nice delay pedal,
short demo here:

http://soundcloud.com/jean-pa/mini-demo-memory-lane-jr

i like what i hear all along, but prefer from the beginning till 0'18", then at 0'32, and at the end.
the sound is richer, more dynamic, is it the mark1?

21
hi,
around 150$ i think (not shure, the prices aren't the same here in europe!)you can get the mxr m134 stereo chorus.
i tried many chorus pedals(well, not so many, but at least 10)and liked this one immediatly.
it's creamy, deep, and has enough control knobs to get the sound you need for a song.(important maybe,it's in 18v)
i use it in this video all the time, and change a few settings on the pedal at 1:17 and back at 1:50 :

Amps, Effects & Recording Techniques / roland kc150
« on: October 04, 2012, 02:06:51 AM »
i want to have 1 (or 2) synth and my rhodes together on the same amp for small gigs, and was looking at the kc150, has anyone tried it?
the bigger one (kc350) is too heavy and loud(and expensive) for me...

23
I'm very happy with Dunlop MXR M159.
Tremolo and Pan, and stereo IN if you have other stereo effects you want to put before that.

24
charlie,
if you're new to all this, i think you don't want to spend too much money on something you don't exactly know what it sounds like.
some effect pedals mentionned here are really excellent but are almost the price of your piano.
on the other hand, buying too cheap stuff won't bring you anything but bad sound.
i am myself the happy owner of a 76 stage73, but only for two years, and had the same questions about effects.
i began with cheap stompboxes and it was a bad thing because it sounds not good, and they're hard to get rid of.
now i have mostly "middle price" :-\ stompboxes(here in europe, about 200 euros each), and am very happy with them.
it's mainly ehx and mxr stuff, except the overdrive (fulltone ocd v4)and the wha (voodoo lab whazoo).
good search!

Classic & Modern Fender Rhodes Artists / Re: another vid, solo rhodes
« on: July 12, 2012, 05:55:47 PM »
by "solo" i meant there's nothing but rhodes, no bass, no drums or anything.
thank you very much for your comment, i hope i'll record in good conditions someday!

hi guys,
this one is a solo one:

hope you like it! :)

27
first thing that comes to mind:
pan effect(square wave form or close to that),synchronised to the tempo of the tune, in eigth note i think.

« on: May 14, 2012, 06:48:55 AM »
Found this under the tolex on the lid of a Suitcase 73 that's in the shop for restoration. Anyone know who M.B. is?


Mr Bean ?

This is what i use and I'm very happy with it (works with a regular 9v battery):


EL POTATOR is a brand new active pre amp designed for the Rhodes stage piano.
low, hi, mid EQ and volume controls. fits perfectly the rail with original nameplate.
easy to install.
