Here’s an oldie, but a goodie. The Korg EM-1 is a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, it’s an amazing drum machine with some really cool MIDI features, a great selection of drum samples and enough on board wavs to get you pumping out some house music.
Where it lacks though is in the synth sounds. There’s only a few basic wavs that you can use and after a while, everything you program into it starts sounding the same.
However if you go off the beaten path a bit and starting messing with the effects and tempo settings, you can get some really cool and quite analog sounding noises out of it.
