The KingKORG is a synthesiser with a powerful analogue-modelling sound engine. It features a wealth of filters, allowing it to model the characteristic sound of a number of classic synths, including the Korg MS-20, Prophecy, Z1 and Radias, as well as filters based on classic Oberheim instruments, the legendary Prophet 5 and the Roland TB-303.
On top of all this, the KingKORG is packed with effects, it has a number of hands-on controls for tweaking your sounds, plus a 61-note keyboard and a vacuum tube driver circuit to add real analogue warmth at the output (or distortion).
Anyone purchasing a KingKORG synthesiser from us between March 1st and April 30th 2014 will be able to claim a FREE Korg Monotribe analogue synth (worth £139).
Zev and Gadi, better known as Wolf + Lamb are producers, who make music, perform and throw parties as part of the Crew Love collective. The group often come together at The Marcy Hotel in Brooklyn, New York, to work on collaborative projects and in this interview, Zev and Gadi talk about what they love about the new Novation Bass Station II analogue synth, Novation MiniNova analogue-modelling synth and Novation SL MkII controller keyboard.
It's been a long wait but the Waldorf Pulse 2 is finally here! The original Pulse was considered by many as the ultimate analogue bass synth and for good reason! It had a HUGE, powerful sound and was even rather handy at producing tearing leads! I should know as I own one!
Anyway, the Pulse has been resurrected in a modern version 2 form. With 3 oscillators, I have to believe Waldorf when they say that the Pulse 2 is designed to "kick out the deepest bass you'll ever experience"! It features new high and band pass filter modes, an arpeggiator, 500 onboard memory slots and loads more!
The best news of all is that we now have one in stock! Grab it before someone else does!
One of the most hotly anticipated products of the year has arrived in our warehouse and is available to own NOW!
The Bass Station II is a brand new monophonic analogue synth, based on Novation's Bass Station, which enjoyed huge popularity in the early 90s. I happen to own an original Bass Station, which has a superb unique character, excelling at big squelchy basses and acid-type leads.
The Bass Station II is a brand new monophonic analogue synthesiser, which is based on the original iconic Bass Station from the early 90s. However, while the Bass Station II is more than capable of creating those oldskool basses and leads that the original became famed for, it can also do so much more...
Yes, it's true that we've been receiving deliveries of these little analogue synths for a while now, but due to their popularity, they've been flying out of the door almost as fast as we can book them in! However, we've now got a small selection of them on our shelves and available to buy immediately without having to pre-order (available on a FREE next working day delivery service)!
The Korg MS-20 Mini is a re-incarnation of the classic MS-20 monophonic synthesiser, which was first introduced in 1978. The MS-20 Mini features the same analogue circuitry as the original, but brings it to you in a more compact design, and at a fraction of the price of a second-hand original! The original MS-20 is a true classic, with its own iconic sound that has been used in countless hit and underground records over the years.
If you want one quickly, be fast because the ones we currently have in stock aren't going to stick around for long!
If you're into your real analogue synths then you'll want to check this one out! Novation have added a new file to their SoundCloud page, which allows you to hear some recordings of the new Bass Station II so that you can get an idea of what it is capable of.
As an original Bass Station owner I was very keen to get another listen to this new synth as last time I heard it, it was still in the prototype stage. Having listened to the audio file on SoundCloud, I have to say that I'm extremely excited for when this synth is released. It's still definitely got that original Bass Station character which I love, but it's got an altogether bigger sound and lots more features, which means that it is much more flexible than my original rack unit, and it can potentially sound a lot dirtier!!!
