anyone got one? what they like? im thinking of getting one..unless people can tell me something better..
Depends on what you want to use it for really. To be honest I don't use half of the settings but the organ-type sounds are very useful for filling out a band's sound and for cool riffs lol.
just want it to fill out the souns, organ drones and noises etc.. in addition to a guitar based band
you get one then. They're good value.
dunno...I bought an ms-10 for around the same price, and sure, its a monosynth so you can only play one note at a time, but you could easily pick up a casio at a bootsale or something and run it through the filter.
Old synths= cooler
new synths= you could easily just get the same sound as every other muppet who bought one
where can you get them from though?
got mine off ebay for £250 + patience...they can go for a bit more.
I've got a few casio mt-70s and the like, and none of them have been more than a couple of quid from car boot sales
They all sound pretty great
i shouldn't get one quite yet anyway, or i'll be broke before festival season is over
its a bit gay. its got good sounds and stuff but feels a bit cheap.
THeres an alesis equivalent or something for about the same price but its apparently better
but wanted DIRTY SOUNDS
how do I make DIRTY SOUNDS without getting my cock out, and preferably cheaply
As many sawtooth waves as your synth will manage, tune them down an octave, detune them by 10 cents or so, filter mostly open, lots of resonance, but not enough to self oscillate, add a distortion pedal and a bitrate reducer.
Probably pick up a boss metalzone for a few quid on ebay, they sound like arse with guitar but I've found they can destroy synth sounds.
Big muffs are good to.
and my personal fav..a RAT with the gain right up. NOTHING better than a keyboard fizzing into oblivion.
i've got one. it sounds brilliant. really full sounding. it's an analog modelling synth and it really genuinely sounds like a proper analog. I totally fooled an audiophile with it recently.
a bit shit. Especially if you don't know what you're doing. The interface isn't very friendly for people who don't know how to program synths, which means people who get them just use the presets. They don't sound that good, either, and a Microkorg is basically shorthand for an indie band getting a synth in that they don't really know how to use properly, because everybody's doing it these days.
Buy one with lots of knobs on it. You'll thank yourself for it when you work out how to use it.
i found it really hard to edit and find sounds that weren't a bit 'generic' - that's probably my fault though.
i use as casiotone mt- 70 it sounds nice and soft!
and have an okay computer/laptop I'd pick up a controller board instead. Most come with cut-down versions of Reason or Live; and even those will be astoundingly versatile compared to the MK.
ive been having alook about now and there seems to be better ones, an alesis ion maybe or the micron..
anyone know anything about these? they've had good reviews
all the synth sounds on 'repetition 4' are from an alesis ion.
the beats aren't though.
