Korg Poly-61

Postby Plink Floyd » Tue Jul 31, 2012 9:00 am

So I'm in the Indy GC yesterday to buy an Alesis RA-100, another cheap 61 key controller (so I can keep one at work), and an impulse buy (a used soft keyboard bag that like totally says "Roland JUNO", dude!), when I hear a sound coming from the keyboard room that stopped me in my tracks, beckoning through the haze of long ago, calling "hey, remember me?" I was almost certain, before I saw it, that it was a specimen of the first polysynth I ever owned. Someone had just brought it in & the sales guys were trying to figure out how to get it to change patches lol. I spent a very fun half hour with it. Those things just sound great to me. I loved the second oscillator, the joystick was joyous, the keybed was fast, the Korgish filters were just korgasmic...

But I was also reminded of the things that led to my disatisfaction and eventual disassociation: no knobs, no portamento, no midi, the steppish nature of some of the parameters ect.

So, even though this one was in vgc and everything worked well and they said they would price it at only $300, I sadly walked away.

Clavamanother: if you want this one, don't ask me to be the middleman, because if it comes home with me, I might not have the strength to part with it again. Just call them direct and don't tell me...

Even after you saw what Kebu gets out of it, you still walked away?

I'm getting my DW8000 on Thursday.

Hey Plinky, is Zionsville near by you? There's a Poly61 for 295 BUY IT NAO on Feebay. You could probably pick this up and save shipping... and maybe even save on Feebay fees... *nudge nudge*

Thanks, CR, I drive through Z-ville on the way to work. But I really don't want another one unless it cost little or nothing. I can make my Kawai DCO synth sound pretty much exactly like a Korg anyway, except for the 2nd osc, and a little flanger doubling goes a long way for that.

I don't know yet :lol:

I need to get this keybed fixed and now I need a key in my A-90 fixed as well, so I might be keyless for a few weeks :eek:

Unless I buy that Fusion 8HD on Ebay which would be totally awesome.
