Korg DW-8000 - Version E (Expanded)

So I just learned that there were some DW-8000 synths sold in Germany called Version E or Expanded, which added external audio input to the synth's Digital Delay, 16 additional waveforms and 64 additional patch memory locations. Does anyone know how to add this modification to "non-E" DW-8000s? I di...

Re: Value of Vintage Jupiter 4

Always look at SOLD listings on eBay and Reverb.com to see what current market value is.

People always ask silly amount of money for gear, but doesn't always sell.

Re: Trying to find the synth used

ologize for in advance) the sound I'm looking for is the sound in the song that gives it's general melody, and sounds that appear often in similar synth pop tracks of the time, with the Back to the Future aesthetic, I do not hear any melodic synth parts. For melody, there's the vocal and the guitar...

Re: sound

Sounds like a sample of a distorted guitar power chord.

Like what Ozric uses in this track

Re: Affordable Vintage Synth with Arpeggiator?

You might be lucky to find a Korg DW-8000 for under $300, though their prices are rising lately. Pretty much everything 80s is rising. The Roland U-20 is a digital "ROMpler" with lots of decent "bread-and-butter" sounds and has an arpeggiator. Can't really edit the sounds much besides AMP attack and...

Re: Hardware Synth prices and VSTs.

Ugh, here we go again. I guess the OP grew up with VSTs. I grew up with hardware. Hardware was EXPENSIVE in the 80s & 90s. $500 didn't get you squat back then and adjusted for inflation, $500 back then is like a grand today. Today, for $500, you've got your pick of TONS of high quality electronic in...

Re: The 2600

Supply versus demand.

There are other options: TTSH & Behringer 2600. I'll probably get the latter - all their other synths have been very faithful to the originals.

Re: Reason to get external sequencer?

I LOVE the sequencer on the JD-Xi. I was hoping the JD-XA's sequencer (and synth) would be double that of the Xi, but it isn't really. Sequencers built into synths started in the early 80, but were very limited. With the popularity of MIDI, external sequencers are much more powerful and by the mid 8...

Re: Need identification of this keyboard

It's a pretty small image, but it looks like it says "N5" on the rear which could mean it's a Korg N5.

Can you post a larger image and/or link to the video?

Re: What keyboard / sequencer / arpeggiator was used in Song X?

I know nothing about DAWs (I've been "DAWless" since getting into this game in the late 80s), but as you can tell from watching the video, they're using the Jupiter 8's arpeggiator. The sound isn't anything special and could probably be recreated on most subtractive synthesizers, hardware or software.

Re: What keyboard / sequencer / arpeggiator was used in Song X?

If by "Song X" you mean the names of specific songs, people post that sort of question here all the time. Many times someone will actually know and reply. Other times people will guess and lively conversations ensue. OK, so a simple one to start with....Las Palabras de Amor by Queen? Video shows a ...
