Re: Tech question for Jens - From Sao Paulo’s show

oh don't have to worry about nothings! it was very formative for real! so as you say, for effects, is better then to have external pedals/proccesors? oh well then i will start buying :lol: well it's that i'm deeply completely satisfied with the effect mounted in the korg at least, but well i suppose...

Re: Tech question for Jens - From Sao Paulo’s show

yeah! but.....why all those pedals? i mean...i only know it's effective the whammy and all of that...but...why the super overdrive? i mean he actually can add the overdrives and all the FX inboard, and even more now that he uses Korg M3, which has the best korg features (at least is the latest) and ...
