what does /mu/ think of the KingKorg?
I'm a electronic music producer, already have a Virus TI but I want more hardware stuff.
The reviews are good and the sounds are decent as well and with my budget I just can't into the HoF of synthies.
So basically I'm looking for a synth with great electric piano sounds, bread-and-butter stuff like pads, strings and leads for the less present layers.
Other choices would be Roland Juno-Di or Dave Smith Instruments Mopho x4.
Or should I whore my ass out and save up for a Prophet 08 or Pro 2?
Manufacturers really don't want software to sound as good as their hardware inspirations.
Most notable with Lexicon reverb. The native plug ins sound good, their fine.
But nowhere near the 480L or PCM.
Sorry to hijack thread but I wanted to get a gear list going too. Also KingKorg is alright, if i was you though I'd go for the Mopho x4. MiniBrute is good for bass but it get very dirty very quick, hard to get clean bass with it. But if dirty is your thing then hell yea.
Here's my euro setup on modular grid.
I also own:
>All 4 Volca
what's a good beginner synth? I was gonna get a micro korg but when I mentioned that on a bleep thread everybody went anal about how they're overpriced and obsolete compared to other synths in the same price range
Well the brute can totally handle that. Subphatty is an awesome choice too though. My next buy will probably be one of the new Sputnik Buchla-clone modules...probably the quad Low Pass Gate/VCA
With enough effects you could honestly do it with the Volca series since they sequence. MicroBrute too because of its sequencer as well. Something with a fat filter.
Pretty much if you want to do TD/KS stuff the right way though then just go full retard and get into modular.
normally i'm an analog enthusiast but i've been really wanting to get a digital synth for a while now. been looking at the roland d50. waste of money or nah?
casio cz series can get pretty cosmic and they go for relatively cheap. it's kind of a stretch but you're asking about cheapness.
The Maths is for sure one of those modules you just have to have and play with before you really "get" it.
I use it mainly to do really complex envelopes and weird LFO's, but using it as a signal inverter and CV processor is amazing as well. Run some CV or Audio through the inputs and get weird.
The best polysynth ever, period.
Fuck all ya crackers
