ABOUT preset Drumcomputer - the KR55 (1979) it was used by depeche mode (speak & spell) and strange disco acts like "divine" or "bobby orlando" or lime3 .. well.. it is somewhat close to roland TR606 and TR808 imho this is one of the most important ones by korg, seems it has not the same cult status as the TR's...
ABOUT preset Drummachine , klanglich an TR606 erinnernd wurde von dem heute nicht mehr so bekannten "Bobby O" (Italo Disco Sound) oft genutzt, Depeche Modes speak&spell ist ebenfalls hiermit gemacht. die KR ist also schon eine Alternative, nur leider ohne Programmierbarkeit.. leider..
DETAILS 6 instruments, all analogue
DETAILS 6 Instrumente, alle analog
