Korg joins the fold...

Pictured here is my first Korg (the MS-20 above), joining a recording-in-progress (top pic, far right). It's a cool little semi-patchable synth, and makes sounds that take my ears back to the late 70s/early 80s days when electronic music itself had matured, but synth pop was still on wobbly legs. Raw, quick to dial up what you want, but still highly tweakable. Of course, in the scene above what we have is not synth pop, but rather a nice, slowly modulating drone, heavily filtered and rich with peaks teetering on self-oscillation. [slurp...]
