Apollo 440 talking 'bout Korg

Hey, they remixed Jarre, didn't they? Slags!      03/08/00

Apollo 440: stylish guitar-dance crossover merchants and remix whores. But they did that Krupa track, and we like that... Anyway, they've got an MS2000 in their central London studio, and they say this about it: 'It's one of those machines you just turn on and know you're going to like,' says the bands Trevor Gray. 'The sounds really have an old skool feel and that thick analogue squelch. And you're getting four-note poly! How many other new synths of this quality offer that? Even two-note poly would have been all right, but four is fantastic. Mind you, the mono functions are pretty cool, too. You can get it to re-trigger on every note-on - y'know, true monophonic, just like the old Minimoogs - or trigger from every note-off. My favourite feature, is the virtual patch function. The way you can route everything to everything else, LFO to cut-off or whatever. That is really, really useful for lead sounds. I've never found another synth that can do that, apart from this one. It's the business. It's like having an MS20, and SQ20 and a VC10 all in one box.' Yeah, we know it sounds like a cheesy endorsement, but Sonic's own Mark O'Grady said the same kind of thing...
MS200r These pop stars. They're not all drug-addled morons, y'know. www.korg.co.uk
