  • M3 - Better, same, or worse?

    Acknowledging that the M3 is a rather weird looking beast, I put the control panel in its flat position. Y'know, I kind of like it this way. And after adjusting the contrast, I have no problem reading the touchscreen. What do you think?

      This is how mine looks. I think it looks pretty cool...



      I've been using the M3 a lot more since the KRONOS got announced and I have to say, it's a freaking awesome synth. I wish I'd have spent more time with it.

        I tend to leave mine flat.

        I also tend to leave mine in the flight case because I'm too lazy to lift the damn thing.

            I think you should mount the M3-M unit to the wall, get a really long cable to connect the keyboard and play it in the bathroom.

              I think it LOOKS better 'flat' - but it's more practical playing it in the 'upright' postion.

                  Those scooped side panels make for an interesting effect. On the 73, folding the module flat makes for a totally boring look, as the side panels are totally rectilinear and flush with the lowered module. It's just a flat slab of aluminum from one end to the other, interrupted briefly by the occasional button.

                    Only if you're sitting. When you're standing, flat is usually better.
