Tired of using the same old plug-ins that only offer bland synth sounds? If you’re searching for a compact-sized synthesizer that delivers the true enjoyment of synthesis, then look no further than Studio 300’s recent acquisition: the microKORG Synthesizer/Vocoder.
The microKORG is a true synthesizer with an analog modeling tone generator and a full range of effects. The included mini microphone paired with the vocoder function further complements the versatility and distinctiveness of this spectacular synth. The microKORG is fun to play, and delivers a sound and functionality that will satisfy everyone from the beginner to the professional.
Stop by Studio 300 and check out the amazing sounds microKORG has to offer.
On Saturday, March 11, Fountaindale hosted our first Maker Faire. The event had huge support from our community and featured a bevy of activities including Spaghetti Bridge Building. Check out the highlight video below. And head to our Flickr page for even more pictures.
Once upon a time there was a grey cart that lived in the Vortex. It had a bevy of amazing items that Teens could use to channel their inner artist and get creative.
There was only one problem: the cart was too plain.
Using Studio 300 technology we gave the cart a much-needed makeover. After designing the graphics using Adobe Illustrator, we sent the files to our vinyl cutter, and then installed the finished pieces on the cart. The pictures tell the story.
Visit Studio 300 and learn about how to use the vinyl cutter for your next project.

In a world full of big dreams sometimes it’s the smallest details that may change your perspective. Or, at least, that’s what a macro lens can reveal. Recently, Studio 300 acquired the Tamron 60mm f2 macro lens, and, of course, we created a class for its debut. All of the patrons who participated in this hands-on class really enjoyed the extreme close encounters they had using the macro lens and a DSLR camera. Take a look at some of the great photos they took in the video below or by visiting our Flickr site.
