My synthesizer is a Korg N264 Music Workstation, one of the most excellent and versatile instruments I've ever worked with.

I have that MIDI'ed to an Oberheim Drummer interactive drum pattern sequencer.

On the Korg, I usually set up a combi with drum kit B19 set to MIDI channel 10, and set the Drummer to channel 10 so the synthesizer doubles as a drum machine, playing patterns sent by the Drummer.

At home, I string a couple of extra MIDI cables to my computer's AWE64 sound card MIDI port so I can write and transcribe music just by playing the keyboard and running the drum sequencer, using either NoteWorthy Composer or Anvil Studio (see the links on my main page). Return
