That said, it's certainly not the most capable monosynth out there, the Moog filter is...

Re: Just played with a Novation BS2...

I will do a demo to show how flexible it is, and i just not agree with one thing the reviewer said,.. this synth has no limitations whatsoever, above that amount of features you can have only modular... If you read my review carefully, all I said about "limitations" is that the modulation routings ...

Re: Korg MS 20 Made in Germany ?!

Yes no panic it was the same for French synths, they always had the plates /stickers in both English and French. All of the Korg stuff was made in Japan.

Re: New analog boxes from Korg?

It'll be fine for a few minutes, then I think I need to turn the detune down as it's not sounding great, find that the detune is already turned off and playing an octave (ei...

Re: The NeverEnding STory

From what i hear i could also be a Polysix Midi P5 or any 20 other synths > Chord memory and arp up and down , but it's more likely a sequence through midi... stop with the Jp8 already,this thing it was not necessarily on every record out there!

Re: Bottom Ten Worst Synths of All Time

Look at this Polish Funk band from the 70's /early 80's the famous Polish Key player J.Skrzek is using the Davonlist amongst moogs and other expensive synths , must be worth something to have it around in such company :)
