BTW, the 351 is great for me as an owner of many Foogers and a Doepfer modular system but the outs of the 351 work great with the ins on the KB version of the Voyager. Like I've said, more modulation routing possibilities = more fun! As an owner of a Voyager, I am intrigues by the idea of the 351 -...

Re: Recommend a groove box please?

A song writer friend is looking for something simple, cheap and good sounding. Needed to provide drums and bass. Is there anything that you can program on a grid like the TR707/ 505/ 626? I've tried MC303 and 505, and they would be too awkward for this person. The Korg Electribe's are too advanced ...

Does it require an internal battery? If it does - it probably needs replacing.

£2000 for the black edition in our local music shop. :(



Why is everything cheaper in the States! :x
Well to be fair - it was second hand and an eBay thing. & btw, I live in Canada, not the US thankyou.... :wink:

I got my signature series one (with all the accessories - gooselamp, case etc) for $2500 CDN* (taxes included) last month.

*about 1200 pounds

Is that a good price in the UK?

The oldest synth in the world is the Theremin (1919). Without the Theremin, we probably wouldn't have electronic music the way it is now.

The oldest digital 'synth' is the player piano (19th century - on/off/on).

(That's my story and I'm sticking to it - for now)

Maybe it was killed by the M1 when it came out, but which would I rather have now? The D-50.
Agreed! I had one and with the PG 1000 it's wacked!

...would like to add the jp 8000.... Agreed! I also think that the Korg Prophecy, the Roland MC 505 and the Moog Theremin should be considered 'classics' in the next 10 to 20 years. The Prophecy because of the organic sound it electronically generates + that log ribbon is so cool. The 505 because i...
