Re: Akai MINIAK

Anyone got one?

I know already how it sounds, but I would like to read comments about its build quality. Is it solid? heavy? Are the knobs firm? And what about the mod and pitch wheels?

Thanks!

I use Solaris in live venues, and often get the local players feverish as they always ask what synths were used on that fusion piece? It's cool when I reply Solaris, most just go " Oh Yeah, that one." When actually they are embarrased to admit that they are just your basic Receptor cats w/ your bas...

As far as the Radias doing what this will do? ...I don't think so. The Radias is a great synth and a classic in it's own rights but it ain't no Waldorf. Hats off to Korg for mastering the non-aliasing sound with the Radias, R3 and M3, but there is something about the way a Waldorf handles wavetable...

Which one?
All of them :lol:

They sound good, but not "amazing". There's nothing I couldn't do with my own gear (it sounds really like a Korg Radias). Anyway, I'll still get it :wink:

The thing is that all the pics of this have been prototypes... and the features were subject to change... so hopefully the bigger price tag means they beefed it up a bit... maybe by adding some ins or multi-outs etc. Nothing new I'm afraid. The "techincal" specifications are fixed since a long time...

Re: DSP revolution?

The coming Waldorf Blofeld had me thinking; due to the incredibly low price tag - has there been some kind of DSP revolution lately? I mean, a synth with the Blofelds spec would have easily cost at least 3 or 4 times as much only few years back. Indeed it is alot cheaper than for instance Korgs R3,...

So, still no news on this synth? :-k I don't understand why it takes so long. It's not like they have to build something from scratch... The Blofeld is just a Micro Q with a new user interface and a faster processor.... it was anounced for June, then September, now for December... it's getting bori...

Are you sure you want to go to the toilet? You should maybe open a new topic: "tell me why i should go to the nearest toilet".

Is this how korg normally releases their c**p? I've yet to see an actual image of one. I don't know if it's c**p... but all the pictures are real. http://www.korg.co.uk/images/gallery/dance_dj/kaossilator/images/KAOSSILATOR_front.jpg http://www.korg.co.uk/images/gallery/dance_dj/kaossilator/images/...
