Time machine: KORG 770 Analog Synthesizer 1976

May 2, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The Korg 770 is a great little monophonic synth from 1976. It has 2 Oscillators, 2 Filters, Ringmod, White & Pink Noise, Scale Noise, 2 LFOs and external signal input. Small but very flexible!

“I played the Korg 770 along with a Lexicon MPX 500 for reverbs and a Roland DEP-5 for delays.”

770

An ancient synthesizer from Korg. Aside from being very old, there isn’t much else to say about the 770. It was released in 1976, is monophonic, very limited in design, flexibility and sonic possibility. It can make some weird noises largely due to its retro-cool ring modulator. You can also run external sounds through it. Bass, string and lead sounds are ok. It’s got a fast envelope, auto bend, and LFO re-trigger too. An ole’ classic that’s fun to play with and useful if you’re in the mood for buzzy analog sounds.
