Topic: New to Synths - Kurzweil K1000 or Korg M3R?
Replies: 6
Views: 8318

I have an M3R in addition to the Korg Digital collection with the M1. TBH, at the moment, for playing live I prefer the M3R. While the piano almost makes me cringe, I heard a recording of my band and the piano actually cuts through really well. I think I'll be happy with the M1 software after I do a...

sure, I'd like to have 30, but really haven't felt like I'm missing a thing with only 10 either.

oh god are there fx in Reaktor! Not to mention Absynthfx and FM8fx (don't ask me how as I haven't used them as fx but I know folks who have). I think Guitar Rig is pretty sweet, too. Too bad they discontinued Spektral Delay. When they announced the Komplete series I jumped on it even without a stude...

You have some good gear too, I always wanted an M3R (if that's the old M1 based one you have). Have you modded the DW at all, a la Poly 800 Moog Slayer mod? The M3R is a fun bit of kit..I got it in a trade from a fellow. I restrung his piano, so I think he came out better monetary-wise, but it was ...

congrats gunark, that's a fine list! I'm going through much the same as you. In spite of being a mod at a large vst forum, it's to the point now where you can pick up a decent piece of hardware cheaper than many vst synths.
I'm maybe two pieces away from having all I need for my studio (yeah right!)

AX-80

Just saw this on Craig's List at a location a mile or so away...
my question is, I already have a DW8000 and an ESQ1,
is the AX-80 similiar in sound?
the asking price is $250, is that too much?
thanks for any advice!

.. This is where these instruments go ... to cover bands who need a quick and dirty piano/organ/horn section without a lot of fuss or MIDI cables, to church bands, and to ethnic bands who probably never go a weekend without a gig. yeah, that is precisely the reason I got a Motif. heck, I never even...

I loved Cubase 5.1. The only reason I switched to SX2 was that Steinberg announced a deadline for upgrading from 5.1 to SX2. I didn't want to be faced with paying full price again, so I bit..only to discover two weeks later that SX3 was being introduced. In other words, I could still be very happy j...

Re: What is your software sequencer of choice?

My favourite sequencer is Sequencer Plus Gold, from Voyetra. A really good DOS program with all functions logically laid out on the keyboard, no need for a mouse. This allows me to work very fast. You need an old computer to run it though. :D I started out with that back in the late 80's :) I'm hap...

Their site is broken. Clicking the Vote button does nothing, as it's not a Submit button and there's no onclick event on it. There's no form on the page, no code to trigger a submit, so their server isn't getting the votes. yeah, I tried it in a couple of different browsers... well, they can have m...

you ought to have a look at shortcircuit for a great vst sampler. This used to sell for around $150, then all of sudden the dev decided to make it free.
