Value For Money : Excellent
Synthesizer rather focused Hiphop, Electronic Music, Dance.


The general configuration is simple, the manual is clear, editing sounds is easy on the Korg Editor, on the other hand on the dashboard is struggle, a full synth menus / submenus ... apart filters and envelopes (3 potentiometers manipulated on the right), the rest is easy to access but boring and tedious.


At levels of sounds, we attack his strong point, this little synth hides his play. The emulations of electric pianos are beautiful, the bass is rich and fat enough. Leads are sharp and pads are very air. The machine is worth nothing without man, the factory presets are cool, but it is always better to program their own patches. This small synthesizer is a good first purchase. His only weakness is its arpeggiator that is quickly limited.


I use it for about 18 months, what I like most is its bass and electric pianos. A look Clein for its design is really successful, pity the keys are so small but that's its charm. The price / quality ratio is good, with the experience I would do this choice without hesitation.
