This page, present on Legowelt's official website under the "Synthesizers" section, was a piece of gear used by Legowelt according to this website. The page contains some words about it by Legowelt himself, and some audio demos as usual. "Stacatto funk basses, mysterious (not so evolving) pads, big leads and those perfect 80s solarsystem-documentary-soundtrack sounds, its all there with a strange paradoxal mixture of faded 80s cutting edge technology and plastic roughness. Put a reverb or big delay effect over it and nobody will hear this is a synth you just bought for a hundred bucks."more
Its pure nostalgia for me I just love the sound of lush wavy 80's pad sounds that I use a lot in my production...great for artist making chillwave-ish or just retro sounding music in general.
I probably would have liked to have kept the 6000 for longer. It was purchased on something of a whim, and a lot of the time I used it, I kept sighing "I really wanted an 8000". But that said, it did get a lot of use and it was the first synth I owned which produced some really clean digital-like sounds (especially digital bell-ish sounds). Some cutting leads sounds when in mono mode, and nice warm pads. When I did let it go, it was to use as a deposit on a Prophet VS which then felt like having about 10 DW 6000s at once, so I think I came out of that one okay!
Scored at a guitar center for very, very cheap. These are overshadowed by the more capable DW8000 but overall have THAT korg hybrid sound. If you don't need more LFOs and waveshapes this will cover a lot of stuff. Not a good FIRST poly, but a great adjunct to a big rig that's mostly analog and pure digital because it splits the difference beautifully. Not wavetables, but just wave memory. Like a less evolved ESQ1 (right down to the extra envelope stages), but also simpler to dial up a nice pad. This has more aliasing on the waveshapes but is at the same time warmer sounding for some reason. I want to think both synths feature Curtis chip filters, but maybe not as the filters sound quite different to me. Both are bright but the korg is less aggressive and SCI-ish making it capable of some very Japanese pad and key sounds that can get downright juno-ey, but that's not its main thing in my opinion. Mine needs a power cable repair. Time to warm up the soldering iron.
