  1. I checked out the Korg R3 and it seems pretty sweet. I think one large difference between the Korg R3 and the SH 201 is that I can get more bassier/darker and fatter sounds out of the Korg R3. Whereas the SH 201 would be better if I wanted sounds that sounded more like a traditional keyboard.
  2. I checked out the Alesis Micron and I have to say I really like the sounds that it can create. The only thing I didn't like is that the pitch-shift wheel is on the top and might be annoying to reach over the keyboard...Does anyone know if the same sounds can be created on the sh 201? Would I be getting better value out of the SH 201?
  3. I am trying to decide which synth to buy. I like the Roland SH 201 but also like the Korg Micro Korg and I don't know which one to go with. I guess the best place to start is to tell you what type of music I want to create. I have gotten into electronic rock lately and here is a short list of some bands that use a lot of synth effects that I like: Metric, Motion City Soundtrack, and The Bravery. I know Metric uses the Pro-One...but as I have discovered that one isnt even made anymore. So will I be able to get similar sounds out of the SH 201 or the Korg Micro Korg? When I tested out the SH 201 it looked like there were 8 presets, so if I want to create new sounds, I have to play with all the nobs...But with the Korg it looked like there was a bank of numerous sounds to choose from. PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG ABOUT THIS! I want to make sure I understand how these synths work and what they can offer me before I buy one!
