    I'm working on, I'm used to my ... and it is true that this keyboard clears something special!

    What is important, is that the c keyboard is very well what it is designed. (Live and warm sound)

    After, I have a hard time understanding the previous opinion in the sense that we don t buy a keyboard to bring him back after 45 minutes ...

    Keyboard feels situation s tame ... and after several hours we start to feel things!
    When comparing it to a soft "Akoustik piano" .... it is a bit funny ... (go play live the Akoustik piano with a midi controller ...)

    In short ..
    This keyboard is the love it or hate it, but what I know, it is that in a situation he assured manner very "pro" in terms of sound ...
    It also sells to like hotcakes ...

    Today, the sv1 is the only alternative to keyboards in clavia north ....
    Except that a North course is much more expensive, and a North electro 3 has not Delay, feel heavy or dual stereo output (for clavias against the will of superiors organs ..)

    In conclusion, the sv1 is the best compromise if the organ goes into the background compared to pianos and eps..et really clears a big potato!

    Everyone to think!
    (I will complete my mind later for lack of time!)

    I tested Pigalle side and here's what I think.
    Goodies:
    - It is compact, perfect for gigs
    - The quality of touch is very good (it's heavy!)
    - It is robust with his sheet structure (the pictures I thought it was all plastic)
    - Anti headlock ergonomics
    - Pianos échantilonnés with their faults and a well-regulated dynamic
    Least
    - It is not possible to change the sampled sounds (competition does) to his (or turn those we dislike)
    - It is red, as direct competition, it annoys
    - It is convex, therefore, impossible to put anything above QLQ
    - Not possible to adjust the organ sounds (lack zippers) nor the synth sounds (lack access to parameters)

    I reu there a week and I'm delighted. Very good product.
    I test a Roland RD-700GX in stores. Good touch, but the sounds are not very convincing.
    I cost several demos of the SV-1, Nord Electro 3, V-Piano, CP-1 and flner on some forums.
    Although all these products seem very good keyboards, the SV-1 contains a lot of good points.

    + Piano sounds are absolutely phnomnaux! Sound of hammers, the pedal and subtle harmonics !!
    + The electric pianos are also excellent. The lamp pr-amplification provides excellent realism. And (I did not test the possibility to master of the wah-wah effect with a pedal.
    + The violin sound including both web and solo according to vlocit.
    + The editor allows to go further.
    + The organs are russis but not worth a Nord Electro 3 all the same.

    Least
    - Mono-timbral (although some sounds are in layer). Unable to play another sound by squencer while you play. (This is a Stage Piano purist too:-))
    - Non splittable (it would be multi-timbral)
    - Only 44 Possible Program Changes (6 x 6 Variations Groups Favorites + 8). Limit as keypad.
    - Can not change the basic samples. (I upgraded the OS, so why not?).

    Amliorable
    The current OS does not allow for "locker" the rglages and as some I touch a favorite buttons for my game.

    QualitPrix report:
    Just okay (compared align competition). Technically, it is only mono-timbral.

    With experience, you do again-this choice?
    Yes. Hsiter without taking account of the game fun as the SV-1 provides.

    Korg SV-1 73Published on 09/09/14 at 13:58
    It's a full sized piano, with piano keys and all the bells and whistles in terms of connections, XLR or line outputs, midi in and out, sustain pedal, etc. Korg aimed this product at the professional piano player who needs various timbres at her disposal on a portable solution, and they did so very well.

    While most of the sound are presets, you can alter various settings with the handsome and responsive knobs on the front, and if 'analog' is your thing, you can 'heat' up things with the built-in AX127 tube.

    UTILIZATION

    While most of the sound are presets, you can alter various settings with the handsome and responsive knobs on the front, and if 'analog' is your thing, you can 'heat' up things with the built-in AX127 tube.

    UTILIZATION

    I gotta be honest, most of my experience with this product comes from recording other people playing it, since I'm not a pro piano player. That being said, I've had no trouble asking the performer to adjust the timbre or even experimenting with the vintage sounds. We can almost get where we want quick and easy and once it's setup we can focus on the performance, and that's where, I think, good pianos stand out from the rest of the controller/synth market.

    As an engineer, it's always a pleasure to mix sounds coming in from this keyboard.

    SOUNDS

    Grand Piano, Electric piano, organ, you name it, this one has it all. As I said in the previous paragraph, responsiveness is top notch for performers with piano technique that really use dynamics in their playing, even saturating and distorting pleasantly when really hammered. My favorites are the organ and electric pianos, and since you get all the octaves of a regular piano, you can really spread those chords and create huge sounding pads.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I love that you can just plug it in, browse the sounds and hit record in about 5 minutes. I hate that things this good and easy are not cheap. I love that piano players that know what they're doing immediately begin pouring out great sounds out of this device. I hate that I'm not a great piano player.

    If you're in the look for a piano solution for your studio, definitely give this one a try. Remember that Korg sounds too Korg sometimes and compare it to Nord's options out there, which are definitely strong competitors.

    6 octave keyboard.
    36 sounds in the bank loaded by default. Editable infinity ... fully customizable Banks.
    2 outputs Jack 6.35 / 2 XLR DI outputs / ES Midi / USB connection for editing banks

    UTILIZATION

    Heavy touch reminiscent of a real piano. Maybe a bit too much if we look for a touch of Rhodes. Simple and clear manual.
    Simple and intuitive to change sounds and banks editing software.
    Midi not use at the moment

    SOUNDS

    The sounds of piano and Rhodes or Wurlitzer are faithful to the originals, especially since they can be modified to obtain THE desired sounds. The lamp gives a true grain if desired.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for a few years just for vintage sounds. Hesitated with a Nord Stage but in my opinion the SV1 to more character than the NORD. Excellent value for money given the infinite customization

    This is a key scene 7 octaves, there are 6 banks of 6 sounds each, 36 sounds in total, plus additional sounds available on the Korg website. Can modify them (a little) with the software supplied with the keyboard.
    Level connections, there is everything you need, USB, MIDI input and output Jack of course not forgetting the XLR.

    UTILIZATION

    Touch is relatively heavy and very well done.
    The general configuration is could not be more simple, one button function. Although the manual is amber, it is doing very well without.
    The MIDI part is simple too, the local function is just to OFF and c is.

    SOUNDS

    For me, the organ sounds are well made and are enough for me. The effects are well done but nothing more, they are sufficient in themselves.
    The sounds are quite realistic, except perhaps for piano and string sounds (the most difficult to sample). Note that are Hammond, Rhodes and Vox are particularly good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a month now and c is undoubtedly a choice I would repeat. Having tested a Roland RD 700NX, I much prefer my Korg. I also tested a North, it is certainly better but also more expensive ...
    In addition, there is a good value for money, cheap to the sounds present.

    SOUNDS

    Fan of his vintage Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Clavinet and Hammond, the SV1 was on paper the ideal piano for me ... Regarding vintage electric pianos, I'm not disappointed rhodes and wurly are excellent and especially varied at will. The amp simulation gives them a unique touch. Clavinet excellent, especially with the automatic wha wha.
    I am more qualified for acoustic piano sounds. I had a Roland FP4 before, and I much prefer the Roland.
    The organ sounds are meanwhile not recommended for anyone who expects to have a clone of hammond. Unlike Clavia here no drawbars, Korg has chosen to focus on a few sounds, and so we did not have much choice in organ textures.
    No split keyboard ... damage

    OVERALL OPINION

    I love the piano, but there is a BIG BIG PROBLEM: SV-1 suffers from a defect (apparently standard) and not least. The power cut (the term used by the service technician) loose. it began with a few plantades only a few months after my purchase, and two weeks ago, the piano has not started after a umpteenth Plantade.
    The technician at the store where I bought my sv1 told me that this is the fourth failure sv1 in two months, with the same symptoms. The mind boggles. There is talk of a piano to 1800 euros, and talking about the Korg! And finally, the service Korg is taking a loooong time to ship a replacement part. My sv1 is for repair for almost 2 weeks, and I have the unpleasant feeling that it will last ...
    I am even more disgusted that without this huge bug, this piano suited me 99%: vintage look, electric piano sounds perfect for me, simultaneous amp very useful: it was a way for me to have a rhodes a wurly and clav in one piano, which is more portable, and as if everything was plugged into a good old tube amp. All SV1 are perhaps not affected by this defect, but mistrust still ...

    The Korg SV-1 is a very good digital electric piano. I have been using it for years, a friend has one at his house. Even though I am not a great pianist its still good for me to get to use it from time to time just to work a little bit on my skills. So for me it is a practice piano but for him and others it’s a piano that they have really polished their skills on. It can be in either 88 or 73 key version, he has the 88 key version and it has a really nice feel too it. Similar to a real grand piano, you really cant even tell that it’s a digital piano buy the feel of the key’s. Of course you can by the sound though because nothing is like a real grand piano except for a real grand piano.......

Of course you can by the sound though because nothing is like a real grand piano except for a real grand piano.

    Overall, I would have to say that purchasing this digital piano (Korg SV-1) is really worth the money spent. Its pretty light too just incase you have to transport it from one place to another. It also has mide connection abilities so you can sync it up with your software. Though I have never used that feature so I cant really comment on it. Also, a ¼ jack is available for the pedals that you can purchase. The pedals don’t come with it though, you need to purchase those separately. If you are willing to invest a good amount of money in a vintage style digital piano then the Korg SV-1 will work for you without a question. Not all of the sounds are piano sounds, it also has good Rhodes and organ sounds. Don’t expect to get the synth sounds that you get on workstations though. It just doesn’t have those capabilities. But the electric piano sounds are great, you will be very pleased.

    It allows another to have these two electric pianos without hurting the wallet and enables gains as a smaller footprint and less restrictive movement!
    We can compare this principle with a fan of Hammond that the absence of a team of roadies and a truck can find the happy with the use of an electro north!

    The piano samples are as successful and will be in their place on stage but not in the studio!
    I will not speak of other sounds that have nothing to do with this keyboard!

    Finally as a midi keyboard he's great with his touch to control your vst piano example

    So I recommend to fans of old EP and the keyboard players looking for a superb MIDI keyboard!
