IKEA stolman or similar to store synths

Hi folks, I am running out of space in my little home studio..I read online that someone recommended using IKEA stolman or similar to stack store their synths. Has anyone tried using IKEA before? I am using heavy synths such as Korg M3 and maxikorg a. I wonder if the IKEA can carry these weights? Pi...

Random Popping/ crackling sounds when not playing synth

Hi all, I have a 3rd hand Maxikorg which is showing some problems. After warming up and playing for sometime, I will start hearing popping and crackling sounds in the background on both upper and lower sounds when I am not playing the synth. The notes will also get an extra popping effect on the att...

Re: How to reduce humidity in analogue synths?

Surely this is a common problem affecting electronics in humid climates? What solutions do they use in IT, for example? An electric dehumidifier would seem to be the best idea. The problem with the silica gel pacs is that they don't last very long. Leaving them inside a synth is a really bad idea. ...

How to reduce humidity in analogue synths?

Hi all, I am suspecting high humidity in my analogue korg synths are giving problems to tuning and all..they become very temperamental and go out of tune for no reason or rhyme recently when the weather changes (suddenly plenty of rain). My flat is on the 6th floor and my house is not air-conditione...

Which is Kitaro's latest Synth?

Hi guys, I am not sure if this is really related here. Kitaro uses a mix of Analogue (Minikorg and Maxikorg) and older digital gear... I saw him using Korg M3 for his world symphony tour in 2014...I am just wondering if anyone know what are the latest Korg synths that Kitaro maybe using? Thanks for ...

Re: Korgtech - Vintage Synth Repair branch for Korg?

Hi, I managed to get a Japanese synth repair shop to correspond with korgtech recently. He offered to help me take care of the repairs and Japanese correspondance for me as he cannot repair my synth due to some unwritten understanding of non-competition with the seller. I wanted to cos I am just nee...

Affordable Bass pedal synth?

Hi, I would like to play bass lines with my feet while I play a double deck synths with chords and melody. I was an electone player but I do not relish playing Yamaha electones... Any affordable ones? I know moog Turaus is way beyond my league (like all moog synths). I have a Korg prophecy that play...

Korgtech - Vintage Synth Repair branch for Korg?

Hi all,

Has anyone heard of Korgtech, supposedly a branch from main Korg company to repair vintage korg synths...someone even said online that Kitaro sent his Korg synth there for repair.

http://www.korgtech.co.jp/

I am thinking of getting them to repair some synths.

Cheers
