’m actually shaking a little bit while writing this. Just a tiny bit. I’m reviewing Korg’s iM1 – the ‘M1 synth for the iPad’ – and have hit ‘that’ Universe preset. Suddenly, I’m instantly transported back to my music technology college 25 years ago, to the midst of a ‘frankly rather ridiculous, but still bugs me more than I care to admit’ argument over which company made the first synth workstation. Was rig every week and basically soundtracking an entire generation. The other ended up in the second-hand pages of a magazine. (I got £150 for it, if you must ask – just over a tenth of the student grant I spent on it).
