I'm sure you mean multiple waveform operators there

Re: Any Korg EX 800 Users?

bought my first Poly 800 in '84 to use as a keytar, used them off and on since then, had an EX 800 which I did the MoogSlayer mod to, and still have a reverse key Poly 800 out the back - somewhat unique sound, I like em!

Re: Roland TR-707 vs Sequential Circuits Drumtraks

On the plus side for the DrumTracks - you can swap out the chips for Linn and Oberheim DMX sounds (or burn your own), every step for each instrument in a pattern can have individual tuning and accent levels, and it's got wooden end-cheeks. On the plus side for the 707 - the graphic LCD, and the Rola...

Re: Roland U20 PCM Card Not Ready

From memory, you need to manually point the card slot to the number on the card, i.e. if you have a card slot looking for card SN U110 01, and you have inserted card 02, it will read "Card not ready" - the slots aren't smart.
