Small, light, provided editing software, USB cable not included, no digital output SPDIF.


UTILIZATION

Super easy to use.
The keyboard is light but pleasant to use.
The keyboard is small but the octave shift keys are there with a change of color to indicate the octave. In fact I realize that I do not play the same on a piano. This keyboard makes it more suitable than a larger keyboard to record movies with the change octave. The number of buttons is perfect for me.
The editing of sound from the synth is possible to troubleshoot the app is still more convenient. It is possible to assign her 5 favorite controllers to 5 pots, which already offers a lot of modulation ability live.
The arpeggiator is very convenient and you can really do swing as you want.
I put "perfect" if the pots were more accurate, but not very bothersome.

SOUNDS

The sounds are pretty amazing compared to size of the synth. It is expected to really do it when you see it.
It is possible to obtain a wide variety of sounds. In addition they can be modeled using the step sequencer, which can delay further the limits of the machine. Rare are the synth in this class to offer this feature.
KORG's website it is possible to recover the banks mikrokorg, the MS2000B MS2000 & some sounds Radias. They are all very good.
This adds to the analog synth I expected. It is the ideal example of a pattern produces sound purer and more realistic. It is also the perfect complement Electribe.
The sounds really are and the enveloping presence. It sounds great I find if I compare to my Motif ES which has filters on top.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had it one month now. He became the perfect complement to my Motif ES and a Electribe MX.
I tried a Gaia, a Venom and R3 and finally I chose the R3.
In terms of price it is positioned properly, although I would have preferred to find opportunity in my region.
