Review Korg MS20: A+ on the Hardware

Korg MS20s are similar to transports nowadays — you sit tight waiting for a good one, then three land all at once! The MS20M is another restricted release DIY unit, its absence of console and mod wheel balance against extended blend control, an enhanced MIDI spec and a thin desktop interface. It's as though Korg are delivering the MS20 in stages, every offering marginally more than the last. To further separate it from the reissues. This form is packaged with a little sequencer called the SQ1. In fact, you can't buy a MS20M without anyone else, despite the fact that the SQ1 is accessible independently.

Having collected a couple of home recording products from Ikea through the years, I did in any event number all the bits previously. The parts appeared to be of fantastic and I battled just once, when fitting the triple intersection box. In this, I needed to depend on a couple of pincers in light of the fact that a portion of the nuts were too tight to fit by hand.


Acidlab Bassline 3 Review: Hey it Works. Crazy

In the event that we acknowledge that Fender Stratocaster duplicates are as yet being honestly made and that it will soon be conceivable to purchase an ARP Odyssey from Korg, it shouldn't be strange that Roland's fabulous bass synthesizer, the TB303, keeps on being used by one and all. Acidlab's present list owes much to the Japanese goliath's genre‑defining years and is supplied with new models of the TB303, TR808 and TR606. The Bassline we're looking at today is the third amendment in the arrangement, with overhauled voice hardware and a sequencer like that of Acidlab's 808‑a‑like Miami drum machine and its hip hop beat maker(pay special mind to a survey of the Miami in an approaching issue.). It would appear that its corrosive time once more...


XLN Addictive Drums 2: Better but not There Yet

There are a lot of rap beat maker online instruments to browse, offering exceptionally nitty gritty, top-of-the-extent drum units affectionately recorded in lavish studios. A few individuals use them singularly as a demoing or songwriting apparatus, others see them as a substantial different option for genuine drums and put a great deal of time and exertion into making them an imperative and included piece of their music. Whatever your influence, its components, for example, expense, sound quality, the level of itemized authenticity, expandability and convenience that influence the choice to float towards one virtual drum instrument as opposed to another.


Vir2 Acou6tics: A Virtual Acoustic Guitar that Sounds Real

When it comes to the recording of music, sample-library companies and their increasingly sophisticated virtual instruments are set on world domination. Soon, only keyboard players will be left (OK, maybe singers as well, but they won't necessarily have to be very good ones) as the rest of the band or orchestra are recreated in virtual form. Vir2 are part of the plot and having targeted the electric guitar player with Electri6ity back in 2010, they now have acoustic guitar players in their sights.

While I shouldn't be hypocritical, as a guitar player I was left pretty much open‑mouthed by what a keyboard‑playing friend could coax out of Electi6ity. So does the arrival of Acou6tics mean I should be worried that, in the studio at least, my guitar-playing skills are now completely redundant? Let's find out...
