MicroKORG-S

The Korg microKORG Synthesizer incorporates all the expertise and design aspects that Korg is renowned for, fitting them in this compact yet powerful synthesizer and vocoder. At the heart of the microKORG is the analog modelling tone generator, using the same DSP system as the MS-2000. The DSP analog modelling system is critically acclaimed for its analog warmth and sound-quality. The tone generator offers a wide range of waveforms, as well as filters, envelopes, LFOs, effects, modulation, and more. The intuitive design lets you edit and sculpt sounds on the fly, ideal for both studio and live performances. click there for more...

Roland MC-303

The Roland MC-303 is the first of a series of musical instruments known as a Groovebox. It combines a simple sound module with a sequencer to record and store notation, along with controls aimed at encouraging the musician to improvise the music while it is playing. Despite the number in its name and the attention it received at its launch, the MC-303 has more in common with other MC prefixed synthesizers (such as the Roland MC-202), which contain built-in sequencers, than it does with the famous Roland TB-303. As the first Groovebox, the MC-303 was the first in a line of inexpensive products specifically targeted towards house DJs and amateur home musicians rather than professional producers. It was superseded by the Roland MC-505. It is the predecessor to the Roland JX-305, Roland D2, Roland MC-307, Roland EG-101, Roland MC-09, Roland MC-909, Roland MC-808, and most recently the Roland MC-707 in 2019, along with its more portable sibling, the Roland MC-101. click there for more...

An ultra-affordable and faithful homage to the iconic synthesizer that spawned house music, plus an all-new Distortion circuit, the TD-3-SR lets you conjure up virtually any sound with incredible finesse and ease. With its pure analog signal path, 16-step Sequencer and authentic VCO, VCF and VCA filters. click there for more...
