Did you get your hands on one of the Korg limited edition ARP 2600 releases? No, me neither. As a very small consolation, check out the unboxing video below from Mark Doty.
Our roundup of some great PC4 demonstration videos
Kurzweil’s PC4 has been out a couple of months now, so we thought it was a great time to round up the best demonstration videos out there. After a few hours of viewing, these are the top 5 we’ve come up with but please do link your favourites in the comments below.Australia’s Better Music do a great review: As do Kraft Music… … and Sweetwater.
I also always enjoy Piano Man Chuck’s reviews:
And finally, this short video comparing the PC4 to the recently released Roland Fantom is useful:
I’ve owned this beast for six months now: and I’m still in love
Back in April when I wrote my review of the Crumar Seven I made it clear I was impressed. Six months on, I’ve spent quite a few hours with it, including a handful of gigs where I’ve had it as my bottom board, with a Yamaha MODX7 sitting on top of it (and yes it sits there pretty nicely).
What are my tips after putting it through its paces?
- Definitely carry the seperate pouch for the metal legs separately to the Seven – it makes the Seven an achievable carry and lessens the likelihood of accidental damage to your board.
- The legs DO get easier to screw in and out. I had a frustrating 20 minutes the first time I did it, but as you get to know the angle it becomes pretty simple to do.
- The road case is not the toughest so take care, although the lid has now been strengthened by Crumar and is sturdier than it used to be.
- If you use MainStage, Gig Performer or Camelot, the Crumar Seven happily accepts MIDI messages and I have specific sounds for a dozen or so songs in my setlist.
- Be prepared for regular comments from audience members and fellow musicians on how damn good the Seven looks.
- Most gigs I get at least a couple of people comment.
Again, read my full review for all the details, but this is a board I plan on playing and gigging with for a long time to come.
