guitar

fzzzt.. in a good way.

Playing with a Korg iMS-20, an iPad reproduction of old 80's synthesiser... fascinating toy, but every bit as mindbogglingly  complex as I remembered that kind of beast  to be. The sequencer that comes with it is a vast Russian doll puzzle that looks at first like just a row of buttons and when you look a little deeper.. well, that's how those things used to be. Would have to sit down for many hours for a long time, tweaking stuff, to get music out of it -and I probably won't have the time or the energy. Fantastic toy, though.  Oh, toyses that make noises, we likes.
