Checking out the KORG DS-8 Digital Synthesizer

July 24, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Playing the Korg DS-8 without any additional effects or eq. All you hear is coming straight out of the Korg DS-8.

“The Korg DS-8 employs 4 operator FM synthesis from Yamaha – but on the DS-8 you have sliders to tweak a sounds a bit. A pity, that it’s not possible to save the sounds you have edited with the sliders. You have to edit the sounds in the normal edit mode.

On the DS-8 you have to deal with terminology from analog synths, not with “operators”. It also has an useful effect processor with great delay and modulation effects. The little brother of the DS-8, the Korg 707 does not have this effect processor, which is a big minus.

In the video I show you the kind of sounds, which are the best on the Korg DS-8 in my opinion – mostly beautiful, relaxing pads. A lot of other sounds are also possible, but many of them are quite ugly, so I let them out…. :-)”
