Raleigh pairs the Korg EMX-1 with the Eventide Space reverb, taking Korg’s groovebox sequencer into complete different territory.
Here’s what he has to say about the performance:
The Korg EMX is a fairly simple synthesizer, with easy-to-access knobs and layout, but it does seem mainly marketed for creating techno music (an initialized patch has a 4 to the floor kick beat) and it can often be difficult to be inspired by it. However, if you drench its sound in reverb, I think it can shine quite a bit.
With a simple design, the Korg EMX is a powerful live-performance tool, especially in conjunction with some good reverb.
Of course, the internal reverb is… not the best. So in this case, the Eventide Space was used.
You definitely can get some fairly decent ambient synth sounds out of this combination!
