Many of us in the Computeractive offices are musicians and used to recording with computers. The thing is, editing computer based instruments such as synthesizers on a computer lacks any kind of tactile response, making it less than intuitive when searching for the right sound.
So we're rather excited by the microKorg. This is a digital synthesiser and vocoder capable of creating some very fun and workable sounds. It costs around £300, so it's not cheap, but you get proper editing controllers and a very wide range of sounds for your musical projects.
