Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

A new server, a new environment. Updated and all.

As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

Now I've finally bought a Raven. :D Hope that it will contain more great sounds than those I've heard. If not...well, I've got it cheap. :)

What did you pay for the Raven? Is it the Maxx version?

No Maxx. But it cost me about 200 Euro so it was worth it. Quasimidi products are very rare in Sweden. Hopefully I'll get it this week.

Now I've got to find a stand that can hold three synths. :)

Excellent!! :D Thats a good price(I paid £150 UK pounds),your 200 Euro equates to about £133 UK pounds)nice one,Mines the Maxx version


The Keyboard has a nice springy action and its pleasurable to play,Plus the keys are quite long,which is unusual these days,manufacturers seem to make Keys smaller and smaller,which isn't great if your a proper Perfoming keyboard player with longer fingers,but Quasimidi seem to have fitted a generous size Keyboard to it.

I think the Raven is quite rare in general these days,I've only seen 2 for sale and the second one I seen I bought!!!

I don't ever recall seeing any of them in the shops in the UK when they were in production..But I suspect that there would be far more second hand Ravens availible in Germany given it was made there..There seems to be very few around in the UK

I wouldn't say there a Rare classic like some Vintage analogs,and suppose its not as collectable,but its got its own character that few synths I have used has,Its also built like a tank!!!!!

Hopefully you managed to get a Manual with it,If not you can download one,but you will need it,I've read mine quite intensly and i Normally don't bother other than for References,but I found the Raven (althought Easy to use now) was a different Learning curve from what I was used to with Korg stuff,but its certainly a very capable synth..

the only thing that Bugs me sometimes are the Patches,especially when you have stacked programs,they can be polyphony huggers and especially with some of the more powerful type pads can note steal,I think 24 Voice Poly on a workstation is a little mean,but You can work round it,Plus its great compositional tool with Pattern accompianment 8 track sequencer,great for building grooves....

Again I'm still convinced after using it that this was the Synth that jarre composed with for Oxygene 7-13 the synth he mentions he took travelling with him..

I also think that this was the synth Jarre did demos with for Oxygene 7-13. Can't wait to try it out myself. I found some demos of it (link higher up in tread) and although most of them sucked I liked many of the sounds that were played. If the sequencer can send midi and control other synths then I might even consider to play live. :D


I found the manual on the yahoo group. Great stuff. :)

Yes it seems usefull, even more by reading this thread.
However it's "rare" and it's not the unit I need the most so I won't look after this yet unless someone are selling it in my country and for a good price. Something impulsive might happen :)

I remember I have seen the Cyber-6 in some gearlist from the Oxygene tour. However I didn't spot it from either the show in Katowice and Moscow. Maybe he also got it but didn't think he could use it and never used it or got rid of it quickly. I can only keep on this guessing thing.
