Re: What's a good price for a Korg Polysix today?

Honestly don't buy one , unless its mint and 300€. .Not worth more, todays analogs are far better, get yourself a second had Prophet 08 or something.

Dave Smith Pro2 question

Hey a couple of days ago i got myself a DSI Pro 2 .... i absolutely hated everything Dsi did that i tried over the years. P08 had it ...was garbage for me. Mopho ...eeh nothing special (i had a Bs2 that could do more for half price). Now i went to a local shop tried a couple of synths and ignored th...

Re: Arturia PolyBrute - Polyphonic Minibrute

I really don't want to offend anyone but that proves how little people using synths know about them, for Christ sake it was a pure Sawtooth 3 notes chord where he even didn't bother changing the mixer volumes and had square high up + tri. then comments such as wow it sounds somehow different ..... P...

Roland Mc909 Question , please help !

Hi Everyone I am looking at buying an Mc909 for a good price. But i read about patterns cutting the sounds when you switch between a pattern and the next one. Now my suspicion from the videos i watched is that when you switch from a pattern to a completely different one with different sounds it does...

Re: Korg Might Be Up To Something.

The MS-20 mini is a utter disgrace. The original MS-20 with the Korg 35 filter has the same noise bleed but that's not really the main issue albeit I think the new 20 mini actually has a slightly higher noise floor when nothing is playing. The pots are absolutely terrible and whilst the synth is pr...

Re: Korg Might Be Up To Something.

More badly made miniature re-creations of old stuff please Korg How are they badly made? They are in every way, Ms20 mini is a disgrace , it's flimsy and noisy as h**l. Got mine 2 weeks and sold it , lost 100€ on the deal and would not think on spending 1000€ on a re issue with mini keys for the Ar...

Re: Yamaha Reface

In that photo with a guy on the stairs, the keys look to be somewhat bigger than typical mini-keys. Because they are , i thought they have normal keys at the begging in these blurry pics but i think now these are the 'Korg Ms20 mini' keys , which in fairness is not that bad , they are very playable...

Re: Yamaha Reface

Either i am completely blind or every one else is but for me these are not mini keys ! Look at the depth of the front of the keys. They might be slightly smaller or ms20 mini like (which would be ok). But i doubt they are mini keys...

Re: Yamaha Reface

First of all lets forget about analog for a minute. Yamaha was the pioneering company in the FM synthesis and today it is not an expensive technology so i would be expecting a fresh approach to FM in their new synth. Plenty of analogues out there but no new Fm synths .this is where their strenghts a...
