I was wondering about your Snarling Pig sound. How do you achieve this pig sound through time and what do you mean by "Oscillator sync" on the KRONOS, what do you use? I'm asking just for the single sound NOT for the Combi. Thanks!

My Kronos has developed power issues & become a bit too unreliable to take on the road. I considered going to a Kronos 2, but a friend recommended going to a Macbook rig with Ableton/plugins etc. Do you recommend one setup over the other?

Hi Jordan, I'm new here and also I'm GeoShred User. Well, GeoShred is not a keyboard nor a guitar, I need a guide to be able to apply lessons and techniques on GeoShred, the fingering is the first matter and also the way to get good sound out of it.
