Taking the OASYS Plunge...

.:Synthwire: Taking the OASYS Plunge:.

Ok well this is not really a LivePA related post today, but I thought it was pretty darn cool. Carbon111 over at synthwire has picked a Korg Oasys to supplement his studio gear. There is some sweet unpacking goodness as well as some nice studio shots. Based on the picture above, it looks like ice blue is the color of choice for LED's for 2007.

The Oasys has already handily replaced these items: Nord Electro 73, Nord Lead 2X, Kurzweil PC2R, Yamaha TG33, Yamaha TG55, Alesis Fusion 8HD...The UI is just so very immediate. You touch a component of a particular sound and the screen goes to that page, you touch the parameter on that page and move a slider - voilla, instant editing! This is both the deepest synth and the easiest synth I've ever used. Multiple stackable synthesis engines, a myriad of 16 chainable effects per patch (including some weird-ass waveshapers) and very flexible modulation routing mean I'm going to still be learning the ins and outs of this beast for quite some time...
