DW6000 is an underrated techno box, the piano chord are not your average, but serious damage can be edited through a sampler, but the sound it generates by the EG is highly mistaken by lots and at least an origal sound with potential. If you it's a cheap toy, well so is the an1x...

I have owned a 6000 since 1986. I have always used it as a midi controller for my computers but obviously the lack of velocity sense is a bit of a grind. I am still in possesion of the original owners manual and preload program list. I have always felt peeved by not waiting six months for the 8000 but I agree that the 6000 has a much fatter bass and sounds wicked when combined with an FM based synth.

I've had mine since the late 80's. People always complain about the fact that it's not velocity sensitive. I don't care. You can get some great bells, basses, organs and lead sounds out of it. It broke ground for Korg at the time(sample + synthesis technology, onboard chorus effect).

Speaking of sounds, does anyone have the original presets, either on a data sheet or as a midi file? I'd love to hear them again.

Call me crazy, but I recently sold my DW-8000 and kept my DW-6000. I know it's only 6 voice, non-velocity sensitive, lacks the digital delay and arpeggiator, but I like the sound of it's 8 waveforms better than the 8000's 16! This synth has always just seemed to have more ballz! I kept it primarily for the DW's unique slant on the analogue sound provided by it's wicked filter. It doesn't do everything, but that's why I have other synths.

I got this synth for $130.00 US, and you will NOT find a better buy for the money, in my opinion. Granted, I won't be using it as much now that I got my hands on a DW-8000(better version of this with more waveforms and features), but if you're looking for a reliable analog(with digital oscillators mind you, but who cares- that's a plus in my book!)synth, and you love the synth sounds on Queen's soundtrack to Flash Gordon, this is the way to go! I don't like the idea of saving/loading sounds to tape, so sysex via the computer is the way to go. However, with all the parameters listed on the top of the synth in plain sight, I decided to make a patch sheet. Why??? Patch sheets don't get erased by mistake, and it's very easy to see all the parameters in front of you. Also very good for inputting sounds on the fly(gigs, in the studio, etc.). I got this idea from an a DX-7 user. It's just an excel spreadsheet- email me if you'd like it. Granted, the DX7 has way more parameters, and gets it ass kicked by the DW-6000 in terms of programming ease. Plus don't forget that very cool Korg joystick. Try controlling pitch and mod at the same time with 2 wheels-hehehehe. Plus, sometimes there's just NO subsitute for a a VCF.....fellow DW-users, I salute you!.
