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.

Despite being a bit fiddly to program and having a few limitations this is a great synth, not just entry level but very usable on a professional level!
FM synthesis is a bit complicated programming-wise but this is far easier to programme than my DX and sounds far nicer! As you would expect from an FM synth its great for fat punchy bass, strange metallic noises and sound effects but it is also fantastic for evolving pads and ambient sounds, if you see one for sale then grab yourself a bargain and take the time to play around with the programming, you'll be pleasantly surprised! ;-D

Just got 707. This is not a toy, if you learn how to use it. Not for beginners. Studio synth, for my opinion. Good for Ambient and for experimental music, bad for rock/metal music.

Cheers from finland!

Juan Atkins is not a prof ? learn to program this thing and you can find a monster ;)

Got this one for 90€ yesterday and I'm having fun programming complex pad sounds. I always wanted to put my hands on an FM synth but I always found the Yamaha DX7 too difficult to operate. It's helping me a LOT moving my first steps in FM programming. Plus, it can make very personal sounds if you enjoy programming it :) I'd recommend it
