I bought my Oasys brand new when it was first released about 15 years ago.... I keep coming back to it and learning something new..... it’s got to be the most powerful synth/workstation ever made, I reckon....

I still use mine. I'm in Canada. It is an amazing workstation.

Oasys is still an essential tool in my studio. It is an inspiring keyboard. Cool

Jim, Way back in the mists of time you posted on the Karma Labs forum trying to persuade Stephen Kay to write a guide on Combi creation.... you obviously figured it out as the Combis you have produced are fantastic....

So did anyone ever write the definitive guide to creating Combis ? ... as I would be very interested to see it.

Actually, Paul Osborn wrote a piece for the old "Red" Karma; and, Scott Raposa and Stephen produced a video series on how to build a combi for the M3, both of which can be extrapolated for the OASYS and KRONOS.

Thanks for the compliments.

Hi, I haven't been here in a long time but wanted to confirm that I still use my dear and wonderful O88, mostly in my home studio nowadays (obviously). Just a little bit less often. And, it's the best, most comfortable weighted keybed ever for me. I'm in Budapest, Hungary.
