KORG KARMA - Selling Advice

Postby agent_cooper » Sun Oct 16, 2011 11:58 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm after some synth-wisdom. I bought a KARMA about two years back. It's a great synth but these days I find myself being drawn to MIDI Controllers. I'd like to pick up a new controller and some snappy new DAW software (looking at Reason at the moment, after being highly recommended by my synth friends).

The only way I can afford this new venture is if I sell my KARMA. I need your suggestions. Is it worth the sell? How much would one get for a KARMA these days (it's in A+ condition)? Will I regret it in a few years time?

I'm not a pro user by any form. I like the idea of getting a nice little 49-key setup and having some software to really master and get some nice pads/beats going.

Any suggestions and insights are welcomed. Thanks in advance.

a good condition karma could sell at 700 usd in ebay. A price to sell would be around 500.

cheers,

I'd recommend a copy of REAPER ($65) and a bunch of free softsynths over Reason.

I paid $425 for my KARMA and traded it for a Blofeld once i got my M3. You can *price* it for $700 on Ebay but it isn't going to sell at that price. $500 or under.

thanks for the quick feedback guys.

I'll have a think about it and probably post it later on this evening.

My only rel reservation was the fact that I may miss it later on in life. I don't want to be like the guy who sold his 77 Fender Jazz bass when he was young and now he's smacking himself over the head in regret :P

@Ashe37 - thanks for the advice. So you're advising that purchasing Reason should go hand in hand with Reaper as well? Any reasons behind that decision? I'm a newbie to the DAW game. Thanks ;)

I'm saying that REAPER (which is an actual DAW) and a bunch of free or inexpensive softsynths would be a better choice than Reason.
