To cap off today’s Korg Love Fest, let’s take a moment to remember gear of yesteryear . . . meaning, of course, just a few short years ago. Sure, the latest-and-greatest is always lovely, but I love the fact that Dan Phillips from Korg has an extensive site devoted to the Korg Wavestation (Dan’s photo below), OASYS PCI, and DP patch lists for gems from the Eventide DSP7000 to the Line6 Pod to the tc Fireworx. (I like Dan’s taste in gear.) And why not treat these like real musical instruments instead of just toys to show off. Real instruments take time.

Everything old isn’t always new again — David Battino wondered, rightfully so I think, if anyone really needs a Korg M1 plugin. Yet, there’s something comforting in the knowledge that choice of tools really doesn’t matter when you’re happy making music. And low-budget tools can indeed be had.

Now, does anyone know where I could pick up a used OASYS PCI?
