What Would You Do?

Post by frankerector »

I have a 2019 MacBook Pro...

Presonus AudioBox96...

Roland FA-06...

Eris E5 Monitors...

But then I have a Korg D-3200 that is in Perfect Shape.

Would you ditch the Korg D-3200 or incorporate it into the system.

If you were to keep it how would you use it?

How would you use it in the overall system?

It is an amazing feature full box that is in totally perfect shape.

And the small screen doesnt bother me in the least.

But if it were you, How would YOU use it?

Or should I just ditch it?

Any thoughts?

Right now I use the MacBook and Reaper.

I have loads of Arturia stuff and the system is flawless.

I just hate seeing the Korg D-3200 sit there not being used.

It is a really amazing unit.

I believe the traditional advice is 'have nothing in your life that you do not know to be useful or find to be beautiful.'

That may be your answer...

In general, I think that if it's not immediately obvious how something would fit in with your system, then it's probably a sign that you don't need it. ;)

It may be a shame, but that's probably the way I'd look at it.

I'm thinking you guys are right.

Why try and fix something that's not broke.

Also, like you both said, if there isn't an obvious use there probably isn't a use.

I think I'll just use it to record my practice sessions incase I stumble on something good.

You could keep it as part of an alternative setup, which is the reason I have just bought a Tascam digital portastudio.

I have it setup in a separate space, I use it for the times I can't be bothered with the rigmarole around the computer based setup, and it makes me work in a different way to how I use the computer.

Well there you go, keep it and use it on special occasions, but don't try and integrate it into your daily routine. :)

I guess I'm gonna hold onto it and use it as a separate system. Like stated above.

I will use it to record my practices in case I stumble upon something cool. Many times I have done the jamming about thing and thought it sounded cool and go, "Wait, what did I do?"

No more. I will have defeated that.

The first thing I'd do is change the post title.

Exactly, in fact, does the OP even need to be here?
If you’re happy working the way you are, which it seems, fall out and carry on.
And how we’d use your stuff, isn’t relevant to you.

You're right.

Why should I seek advice from experienced people when I can just wing it myself!

Thanks
