Korg Karma

Seen a Korg Karma locally for what seems a reasonable price (I guess)... so got a bit of GAS and curiosity. I've got vague recollections about playing one years ago in a second hand store for about 15 minutes or so... Obviously they've been discontinued, but I understand the technology is available ...

None really, any that had programs tended to just be presets.

Thanks for the links th0mas. I went ahead and grabbed all the rare chips. Didn't take long at all. But I can see why the kits were discontinued, as I'm going to be receiving 5 boxes from all over the world just for these few parts. The rest I'll order from the regular sources Digikey, Mouser, etc. ...

Re: Eventide - The kittens mittens?

youre very welcome. it gave a new lease on life to my XT. i was already thinking of selling it.. I think one of the things you mentioned in that thread where you posted the Andromeda & Orville samples made the comment about having decent/quality effects to run your synths through... I've currently ...

Re: Eventide - The kittens mittens?

if u dont need full out modularity, full 96k support etc, the basic sound of eclipse is very similar to higher units. i would also recommend a step-up model from Eclipse, the DSP7000. if you can find one used.. they go for arround 1.8 - 2K, but are of same series as Orville (one half of orville to ...

Eventide - The kittens mittens?

I've been having a bit of GAS looking into Eventide units of late; and am trying to do some research into them. Most of the stuff I've seen seems to be mainly around guitars; whereas I'll be mainly using it in the studio (Gear list is in the signature); may take it live if I have enough confidence L...
