Korg 770

Korg 770 Image

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. It is used by Freddy Fresh, Simple Minds and The Human League.

Got this synth recently after hoping for a 700s to come up in my city for awhile and this synth has the same basic architecture.

It sounds old. That is the best and worst thing about it but still at the end of the day is why I bought it. Very vintage sound and feel. Not for all types of music but good for experimental, disco and that new kind of noisy electro house.

These go for a lot of money now, as does the 700s. If you really like the sound of it, go for it but it is definitely a boutique synth. Wouldn't want to have it as my only mono.
