"This menu is for routing the Tracks' MIDI data. Each one of the 8 Tracks on the RK008 can hold MIDI data (notes, pitch, CC's) for 16 MIDI channels at once but via the output menu you can reroute these:

1. MIDI Channel
By default it's set to ORG, meaning that there is no MIDI channel remapping done. Typing a MIDI channel here will reroute incoming MIDI from any channel to the set output channel. This way you can use the RK008 as a handy MIDI switchboard. Just by pressing a Track you can reroute to a predefined MIDI output channel.

2. MIDI Port
MIDI port selects the physical MIDI output to route the MIDI to. You can use the digits 1-3 to select a specific output (OUT1, OUT2 or the RK006 via USB), or press 0 to send to all. By specifying outputs you can potentially drive a whopping 48 channels of MIDI gear.

Read more about the RK008 in the page link below:

Bonus: You can download the little Dopplereffekt / Infophysix .mid file loop which I exported from the RK008 here to play with:"

Korg Electribe AmkII and Akai MPC Live 2 fun, sequencers and production machines in harmony

video upload by Expanding Sound

"I look at this Electribe I have often and think to myself I should just sell it. It is a redundancy in todays world of synthesizers. Yet every time I decide to break it out for a little bit of fun, I always wind up loving it again. Sure it isn't the deepest unit, but the two analog modeled synths sound great and the control features they put on the front end lead to a lot of fun. The Korg drifts a lot, basically anytime I've set its clock to external it winds up drifting at some point. Luckily the MPC has the midi output sequences. You set one synth per midi channel, write a sequence on the MPC and you've just breathed new life into your old Electribe. I had a lot of fun fooling with these two together, I hope you enjoy it!"

Blue Korg 707 Performing Synthesizer with Power Supply and Books

via this auction

"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 has 8 parts so each voice can play a different patch, and is completely programmable through MIDI. 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."

Korg Trident Synthesizer - Fully Serviced / Near Mint SN 330453

via this auction

"Near-mint condition Korg Trident mkI synth. Paint and silkscreen is mint. The wooden cabinet has some minor scrapes and dents that I tried to capture as best as possible in the photo, but nothing major. The synth was just fully serviced by Bell Tone Synthworks in Philadelphia, which included the following -

Replaced power supply capacitors, rectifiers, regulators
Replaced all Matsushita capacitors
Cleaned pots
Tuned voices / calibrated antilog, power supply and resonance circuits
Tested all functions
Additionally, the keybed feels fantastic with no faulty keys. Overall, this is a near collector-grade Korg Trident. As for the wood cabinet, some touch-up with a furniture pen would truly minimize any visible faults. As an FYI, upon check-in to BellTone, the synth showed no faults, but because the Matsushita capacitors are known to be out of original tolerances at this point in time, I felt it was necessary to do. In all, I spent $1200 in preventative maintenance on this Trident for its future owner."

Never Released Korg MU-5000 (Japan, 1985) Vintage Music Synthesizer PC Prototype

via this auction

SN ES 850111

"In 1985 Korg decided to challenge the personal computer market creating a competitor for the legendary Commodore 64 (which was born three years earlier, in 1982).

Rumors then began to circulate about a new musical personal computer signed by Korg, called KORG MC-4000.

Along with the Korg MC-4000, Korg had designed 2 units which were extra and integral parts of the personal computer: a music synth expander called Korg MU-5000 and a microdisk unit called Korg MF-1000.

The incredible fact is that the personal computer project signed by Korg (the first “musical” personal computer in history) has remained for many years as a fake, since none of these products has ever been marketed in the western world.

The only historical artifact related to this project is a Japanese advertisement, a printed ad by Ishibashi Gakki released in the April 1985 issue of “Keyboard Magazine”.

In this ad (please, see the original photos), there were showed 3 products: KORG MC-4000, KORG MU-5000 and KORG MF-1000. The KORG MC-4000 music computer was then presented as a "compact computer containing its own music system".

Korg MC-4000, Korg MU-5000 and Korg MF-1000, according to historical information, have never been marketed because then Korg decided not to challenge the personal computer market. We don't know why!

Today, after years of research, we at Re Seller are pleased to present you the only survivor in the world of that super cool project: the original KORG MU-5000 expander synth!

This find of ours is of fundamental importance as it demonstrates that the Korg music personal computer project would have been really close to being commercialized!

This impossible to find Korg MU-5000 has been tested and is still in working order! Cosmetically there are minor signs of wear due to age, but nothing serious. The power supply is compatible and is included in the sale (this unit works with any 9V power supply and center negative polarity).

This small desktop synth contains beautiful sounds at its core! It is a 16-channel midi expander capable of generating some mighty impressive sounds courtesy of the same Digital Waveform Generator System used in the DW6000 and in the best Korg sounds of the 80s!

What we were able to test is very easy: we connected a midi keyboard to the Korg MU-5000 and listened to 128 sounds preset via program change (we changed the program change directly on the MIDI keyboard).

There are probably many more features to discover, but we don't have the capabilities to test it 100%!

An incredible piece of history, for the most demanding collectors in the world. Impossible to find another in all of history!"

The Korg Wavestation - Orbital's Halcyon+On+On Synth

video upload by Bleeps and Boops

"I have a Wavestation SR in my rack of 90s stuff, so thought it might be good to show how to program it. Or at least *try* to program it.

Edisyn - the PC/Mac editor I use later in the video can be found at

Korg's Legacy Collection or Wavestation plugin can be found in all sorts of places. I still haven't forgiven them for not being able to fix my MS20ic back in 2006... and have sadly been without an MS20 ever since šŸ˜¢"
