I did that for awhile but I wanted to use it for it's effects with my mpc so I took it apart to fix it and long story short, it ended up getting thrown away by a "friend".

I have looked at it and touched the keys and knobs and they feel very solid. Its a fairly heavy unit.

I just copped a microKorg off of eBay. I'm ready to add some synths to my production.

Speaking of adding synths to productions, how do you guys who use hardware add keys and stuff to your production, do you wait until you track the beat out, do you record whatever you play into the sampler, or do you just use midi? I was thinking of using one of the first two methods mentioned.

My mate use's it as midi with cubase says it works really well, I just hook it up to my soundcard and then sample what I'm playing into maschine. I can sample a note loop it and make more out of it, gonna be playing it into my 404, then into maschine later today, haven't tried it that way yet, I can process it a lot before it's even in maschine. It's about what's the most simple for your workflow though.

Bad news for me, the seller (cargo largo, avoid these cats) on ebay states that they don't have the item and refunded my my money. Now my money is stuck in refund purgatory so I can't start looking for another one.

Weird having to send mine back to the seller as well, it's not holding up well, what happens with 2nd hand goods but when they try and rip you off, with fake photo's, it's a pain in the arse!! I'm also noticing everyone rocks a Microkorg, gonna look for something different. I feel you man my money is getting refunded by ebay and I only get it once the goods are returned to the owner, problem is for me I don't trust him to say it's arrived I have it, or he could turn round and say it is in worse condition,

Get an ipad plus a cheap usb keyboard. You can then get a ms 20, dx7, thor, vintage drum machines, mini moog and heaps of other good stuff. Microkorg is digital and so is ipad so the sound is similar quality. Microkorg is really hard to edit patches and make your own.

Only get a microkorg if you want a rompler

I feel you on that one. I've also been thinking about getting something else, maybe a guitar or just some old cheap synthesizer.

Guitars are wicked !! but a whole different ball game, thru neck, solid body pick ups, string gauge, valve amps, I customised a guitars pick ups so it had ceramic in , no one can touch the grit for raw tones like that....but you do have to pay out for decent sound and tone.

When it comes to guitars I'm pretty much a stratocaster man. I don't know why but nothing feels better than a good start to me, and I love the sound of single coils threw a good tube amp. It just has this raw element that I love. I had a Gibson '61 SG reissue but I ended playing my MIM strat a lot more. But I think I'm actually gonna get a Dj controller so I can start putting mixes together.

Ha ha yeah I'm a double humbucker man myself, but hearing you on the strat, hardest thing in the world to put down once you touched one, could never feel gibsons necks were nothing like a strat, almost like a Gibson is male and a strat is female.

Just a question while were on the topic of guitars.

I have been playing for a month or two but it takes me a long time to change from chord to chord or note to note. I have to think about it and look right at the fret board?

Yeah until you know it, also do work outs on your fingers strengthen them up, stretch, stop you get joint injuries, walk around with your guitar tied to you all day until you get what you were trying to do, then keep playing it. If you can find any video of Dimebag Darryl playing guitar watch him closely, watch his face, listen to how he explains rules within music (he will explain they shouldn't exist, he doesn't know his notes or chords by name). Anyone that is good will feel in their head and heart then play it, mostly without looking, cheesy as it sounds the guitar becomes a part of you. Just nail the basics first, you got years ahead of you until not looking, I've been playing 25 years this year and I still have to look occasionally,

Justinguitar youtube videos help me out in the beginning. Like ODK said though, just keep at it, practice while your watching TV or just chilling on the couch.

Thanks for the advice. Any ideas on what to do if your bottom strig is buzzing occasionally ?

2 things look into altering the action of the strings, may be too low, 2nd thing could be a little warp in the neck which means taking it to the shop and not fiddling with it, as it's the rod of metal to stop the neck from snapping from string pressure that might need tweaking, or there is a third almost forgot, the fret marker the metal bit might need sanding off a bit, again take to the shop.
