Korg 707

Korg 707 Image

A good entry level digital synth. It's small in size, simple in its design and offers fairly easy editing. It is a digital FM type synthesizer which makes some very thin and digital but sometimes interesting sounds. The synth engine is similar to the DS-8 without on-board effects. It isn't necessarily useful for any professional work but if you want a lo-fi cheesy digital sound from a toy-like synthesizer then give the 707 a try! It can even be strapped on like a guitar. It is used by Juan Atkins.

I disagree with the terms "cheesy" and "toy-like" in this case.. check out what dr. squ has done with a 707 and no effects. I think we sometimes get spoiled by workstations and expect everything digital to be a good "only synth."

this is a nice little synth, but doesn't sound quite as warm as the ds8 it derives from.

This is truely an uniqe piece of kit. I had it for many years, and can't live without it. It's a very simple FM synth, but you can get some uniqe fat and warm sounds from it. Don't bother with the factory program sounds, for but 2 or 3 of them, but try tweak it to get the sound your after. And it got a memory card slot too, which is great. If your after a cheap FM, VERY CHEAP, this is the one. You sort of understand the FM basics from scratch when you use it. And add a VST filter and FX on your input to the computer, and your there :) I'll try to make an MP3 demo of my personal sounds so you can get an idea.

Hello! To me the Korg 707 is an underated synth, if you take some time and tweak things on it, you could get some unique stuff! Of course there is some crazy noise too if that's what turns you on. In regards to the 2 people who think, or know, they lost their sounds off their Korg 707--i do have a working card! I use various library computers, so i'm not at home right now, and can't remember the name of the card, I know it's more of a "synth sounds" card. To me, one of the best cards you could load on this board. By the way, these cards are hard to find--- remember this thing IS NOW 21 YEARS OLD!! My e-mail is hugespotsfreak@yahoo.com RICK
