NSD! Korg content...

so yeah, i bought a chuckle****ing synth.



korg microkorg. a mate of mine who works at a music store gave me a call a few weeks ago and said they were having a blowout of these, and i could grab one for under half price. me being the massive muse fan i am, i thought why not. chucked it on layby, sold a couple of pedals and i picked it up today. i've been playing around with it for the last half hour, and it's great fun.

it's pretty brilliant. first proper synth i've had. i've got an old casio keyboard that i first learnt piano on, and a korg monotron, but this thing is a hell of a lot more complex and awesome. been ****ing around with the arpeggiator, playing the synth for muse's bliss over and over. this thing is capable of so many sounds it's not funny. it's going to be an exciting and most likely very frustrating learning process.

but yeah. muse sounds. yay. it'll go nicely with my kaoss pad.

edit:

shitty clips. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/23087951/microkorg.aiff

I've been watching CL waiting for one to get down to around $175. They are cool.

Happy New Synth Day!

Those MicroKorgs have huge almost cult like followings. There are tons of videos on YouTube if you start to run out of new ideas. (Although I do admit I went softsynths a while ago. I'm loving Native Instruments FM8 right now.)

These are actually so much fun to play with. The drummer in my old band had one, and I would use it whenever I could. You can get a ton of great sounds out of them. Just wish it had weighted keys.

He should play a keytar!



But that actually sounded pretty good. Soak in the 80's synth cheese.

I dont think I could ever get used to those tiny keys though, coming from full sized pianos and MIDI controllers

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...d.php?t=1466778 Keyboard thread, it's in the Pit so no one can ever find it, especially the people who come to UG because they are interested in playing music.

This is Ultimate Guitar, but maybe we could have one official keyboard thread here in GG&A. Sooner or later almost all musicians want to try keyboards and there seem to be more musicians here than in the Pit.
