A (Brief) Love Song to My Korg Prophecy

When I returned to the States a little over two years ago, I had time to get reacquainted with my Korg Prophecy.  Analogue emulation notwithstanding, the pure digital noise this thing is capable of when pushed is incredible!

I have since used the Prophecy on my most popular song “Gate 36” (check the lead synth at the beginning and end of the song), “Hospital Girls,” and it will be heard in at least three other songs on Hijacking Your Fiction.  “Voices,” a song in progress, features the Prophecy in several places:  the bass, the wail, and the solo synth lead.

I’m quite looking forward to having her back (What?  Some guys call refer to their cars in a feminine sense, and I to my keyboards).  Now if only I could find someone to repair (or modify) my Juno 106.

Update:  She has come!  She’s in Seoul!  She’s caught up in customs!
