Re: What was the cheapest Synth you ever bought?

i got a korg x3r while i was on tour in a san francisco thrift store for $16. i think they thought it was a dvd player because it was at the bottom of a stack. i recently sold it for $300 to get more doepfer, got to feed my addiction.

Re: Microkorg XL

The thing that impressed me about the original microkorg was the modulation capabilities. i would spend hours patching things together. now it looks like that has been done away with completely. :( unless it is accessible through sub menus which would make it even more tedious than it already was. i...

Re: Fantastic synthesists never mentioned on the VSE Pt.1

how about Joey Karam of The Locust. i know they are probably not everyone's cup of tea here but he has some of the quickest fingers i have seen. he really is an inspiration for me and he has a nice set up, really interesting to see live. his soundscapes are great.

Re: Well, after all that trouble, I got my first synth!!

Good luck i hope it works. my first moog was a prodigy (from ebay). the guy said it worked fine but when i got it it had to get repaired. rest assured that he got a negative feedback. The guy said he tested it, and it seems to work, but he doesn't know how to use it. sounds like he is saying that so...

Prodigy tuning problems

I thought my moog prodigy was gone forever. i took it in to get fixed because it crapped out on me and when i called in to tell him to tune it he said that it couldn't be repaired. when i brought it home i plugged it in using a different power cord and it works but i still need to have it tuned. doe...
