Yeah, sadly this Gearslut can’t fit everything I’d like, so a keyboard that doesn’t have aftertouch has no place in my world. I think Korg also blew it by creating a cool user configurable oscillator that’s starved for modulation sources. I’d also venture to say that, to me, it doesn’t sound “better.” Better at some things, for sure, but I happen to really like that DSI Curtis sound. I’m currently looking at all my hardware in a very critical way, and I know that I’ll always want to have one in my studio, though I’m not sure if I’ll keep my Tempest or my Tetras. I’m relocating it all today, so we’ll see. Maybe I can find a way to fit both.
