Korg X-911 Guitar Synthesizer

What a wacky box this was. It was intended to track the audio from a guitar, guess the note, and play the same note from its internal tone generator. Yeah, right. Most of the time it just tracked up and down the scale looking for the note. This unit did have some cool filters but not cool enough to bother keeping it around the studio. Interesting thing about stuff like this. You buy it for $35-40 dollars at a second-hand store, sit on it for years, sell it for hundreds on Ebay. Had I known back then, I would have bought a boxload of them. But, you know what they say about hindsight? You only see the seat of your underpants (or something like that).
