Bob's Country Bunker's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" "Beautiful Stamps""

Korg X-911
Analog synthesizer for guitar. Analyzes the pitch and reused with VCO. A filter is applied. Contrary to what is said in another view, it can out of the synth guitar sound directly. There is a synth output AND direct guitar output.

We can play with a guitar but also a keyboard, flute, trumpet, brief provided any instrument that you play one note at a time. 911 does not follow the agreements!

With inputs on the rear panel, the synth can also be driven cv / gate but attention is the V / Hz - S-Trig, so the scores will not be fair with conventional V / October So you need a converter to play with a Beatstep for example. The converter (I use the Kenton pro-solo) will also be useful if you want to play 911 with a MIDI keyboard.

There are other connectors to enter a CV for the filter, or pedal switch .. Not tried it all.

UTILIZATION

Configuration and easy operation, the only trick is to properly set the input signal. Frankly it is groping. Polarity power (3 positions), the aim being that the "trig" lights on each note and the "peak" is not all the time on.

SOUND QUALITY

The sounds are beautiful. There are two sections: presets, for "natural" instruments, synth, analog to the classic tone ..
The preset part is really interesting. Each sound has its built and you can stack them all filter. My preference is for the "tuba" and "trumpet". Mandatory quotes! the "electric bass" is big and heats the whole. The "violin" is tinny.

The synth part is several octaves of the same VCO, with adjustable attack and decay. But then, everything goes through the filter, and any filter! I do not know if it is the same as MS, but it is beautiful, with a fixed resonance but great set.

The switch "synth wah" modulates the filter by the attack to make way Piou Piou acid techno. Effective, especially with the filter halfway.

So all in all, we have dozens of different stamps on hand, all with a single VCO ... No yucky.

Portamento will not work if the synth is played by entries cv / gate, too bad.

OVERALL OPINION

I mostly use it with a sequencer (Arturia Beatstep), I do it out in two moogerfooger, phaser and delay, and it's beautiful. I play with the presets and filters and filter attacks and the synth part. Very rich as his, with a very warm grain.

With a guitar is immediately more "musical", arpeggios and solos are a size vintage science fiction, the low notes are huge, with good management of the filter is wonderful! Add a touch of portamento and there is total psychedelia.


Conclusion: In terms of sounds available simultaneously, a snook many other synths. It can be connected to many styles. I would define it as a simplified single, controllable by MIDI keyboard and sequencer (essential converter), or controllable by guitar.

This is more than a "curiosity" if you know how to use properly, adjusting well to the module inputs!

Simple, compact and without superfluous gadget, it really is worth trying.

minimumvital's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg X-911
Guitar monophonic analog synth, dating, if I am not mistaken, in the late 70's.

UTILIZATION

Easy to wire: just plug the guitar into it. But you need a "bypass" Y to recover the sound of the guitar (at least if I remember correctly).

The problem is that you play slowly enough that the synth sounds overlap less correctly, and again, sometimes there are "slippages"!

Is that we are far from the MIDI control systems appeared later: here it is transformed into a real time audio signal "trigger" capable of triggering the oscillator synth, and it did not work to perfection.

Roland, with his "guitar synth" (I do not remember the name), used notably by Robert Fripp on the album "Disciple" from King Crimson, had done much better, because a specific guitar was sold with the synth, then the X 911 can in principle be used with any guitar (but it works less well!).

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is a sound "basic" Korg: a little sad and simple listening alone. But with a little reverb or chorus, and mixed with the sound of the guitar (in saturated, for example), it was still her little effect!

OVERALL OPINION

This device is now more a curiosity than anything else.

Note that it was sold with a metal foot ultra rigid and sturdy (I still use for other applications) rather aesthetic, one that is already a fortune (I'm not a drummer, but when I see the price a good cymbal stand, I jump to the ceiling!), as well as an assortment of pedals control (filter, LFO) indestructible well scrap that I use as always, with other analog).

funkman1234's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Korg X-911
-Analog module that works with several instrumentals dedicated to the guitar.
Controllers-many, many see picture two pedals (LFP + Bend) and switch (permanent and fugitive)
- Jack connections in classical guitar only (except perhaps for input & output modular synth)
-6 Sounds (several octaves and tuning) + + waveforms such autowha (possibility to mix the two), vintage, korg ms-10
Mono-
8 / 10 because I have little basis for comparison except 10/10

UTILIZATION

- If you are not familiar with the modular analog or like me it's not easy but we quickly found sounds nice.
The use of inputs and outputs is more complex.
Editions, a relatively simple when you love hack.
"I have not the manual, if anyone has it?

SOUND QUALITY

- Oh yeah! ca suits my style!
- Is analog, ca trying to synthetically reproduce sounds, so not necessarily adequate reproduction. But for my part ca has its own sound, snth of 70-80 years.
- Effects so effective
- The trigger is really good for this kind of effect
- Portamento is a small unique psyche though, the attack late AC sweep, waveform nice

OVERALL OPINION

2 weeks, frustrated at not having more time to test it.
Finally an analog synth guitar, or should I already say hey yes it still 30 years to the beast!
I use Line 6 filter pro, played on Micro Synth EHX (quickly), the digitech bass, moog low-pass filter.
it depends how much OCCAZ with the pedals. This is a very specific and synth autowha wholesale option more numerous, so use electro, funk, experiemental ...
Very satisfied, choice already!
