    For the time it was pretty good, wasn't expensive and did the job. The one with the reverse colour keys was god-awful ugly!


    Sure was!

      Oh wow, I forgot that back in the day I used to have this one AND the DW8000. There are times when I really wish I hadnt parted with them.

        My first synths were a Juno-106 and an EX-800. I sold the EX to one of the other board members here. It was pretty cool for it's time, but the paraphonic filter always bugged me, and it seemed impossible to get timbers from it that DIDN'T sound like a square wave. The EX-800 and the SV-1 are the only Korg pieces I've ever owned.

          Big Korg fan here. Currently using these, mainly for ambient music:

          Karma
          Micro X
          M 3M w/ Radias exb board
          Wavestation SR
          Trinity Rack
          Kaoss Pad

          However, I'm not monogamous with Korg and use lots of other synths like:
          Roland V-Synth, JD990, Kurzweil K2000R, Yamaha FS1R, Emu Morpheus, Kawai K5000R, Novation X Station.

              4 out of 5 dentists recommend Trident.

                On stage... very soon... none! :thu: I'm working a Muse Receptor into my onstage rig and hope to permanently say 'bye, bye' to any Korg gear onstage. I have a Triton Extreme that's been in the shop since Jan 3rd for a simple vol pot replacement(Korg stated 6-8 weeks for the part... probably closer to 6-8 months). I have a Micro X toy I plan on selling soon... in the past I've owned a DW8000, M1. N5, Triton, Triton LE and fo the last few months I skipped around a bit with an M3 but felt the investment wasn't worth it. I'm just not feeling Korg's product design, features, build quality or available soundsets in their current product offerings to make anything happen in present. So I'm replacing my Extreme on stage with a Receptor. It doesn't mean I'm done with Korg... maybe I'll check out Kronos in a year or two when the price comes down. Maybe I'll pick up a few future pieces for the home studio. But honestly the last 5-6 years has been pretty disappointing for live gear.
                so over this signature BS!!!

                  I gots a DW8000 and a Poly800, use them mainly for pads, the odd 80s digital Bass sound and the 800 makes quite a good keytar for silly live use. i think i paid under

                      I'm a noob, but I do have a Korg. I have a Korg TR (61 key), which i play weekly, but am looking to find a way to sell it and move up to an M-50.

                        As much as I post about the OASYS (which I use for 95% of my current composition), my other hardware is non-Korg:

                        Access
                        Yamaha
                        Roland
                        Ensoniq
                        E-MU
                        Alesis


                        From 1984 - 1999, Korg was a non-factor for me. (I was all Yamaha, Roland and E-MU) I perked up when they started putting high pass filters and MOSS options into their workstations. Anyway, I typically use the OASYS (and sometimes Virus TI plugged into it) and either use it to rip wave files to thumb drive, or capture audio to my editing programs (Premiere, Canopus). A lot of videos at my youtube page show it in use.

                          I forgot how nasty looking that was, thanks for the painful reminder, lol

                            I have a Micro X and M3 61. I don't think that makes me a fanboy...

                            I use the M3 as my main controller. I also use the pianos, electric pianos, guitars, basses, and drums quite a bit, otherwise I mostly use software. I only fiddle around with the karma stuff when I want to waste a couple of hours goofing around.

                                i use wavestation and M1 live. but I hate having to carry them, setting them up on stage, jamming etc...

                                so I think I might get 2 49mini key synths (like casio cz101) + wavestation SR + kurzweil pc2or
