    The SV1? Excellent for:
    - Touch the piano,
    - Acoustic piano sound,
    - The electric piano, etc.. All this you know dj.

    But:
    You should know why achte this keyboard. This is the opposite of the trend-cran-menu options endless. His logic is that of an analog instrument: it takes a basic sound, and adds effects, reverb, one pedals, etc..

    Limitations:

    Midi functions are minimal
    The buttons are positioned so that the fawn happens unintentionally releases during the game and we change its unintentionally. Even if this does happen to me once every three months, I dread the day on that happens during a concert (I'm an amateur, but I play occasionally in public).

    In short, I love the sound of acoustic piano (one of the preset factory rglages): Excellent. But you need a good sound system or good headphones trs to enjoy it.

    The instrument is excellent as the sound it produces and the pleasure it provides, I dplore just ridiculous number of presets, the impossibility of Split and the absence of a change of function " smooth "(with transition) as is the Kronos.
    Bought in 2010, the SV1 me that I had redcouvrir Korg apprci the pass at the time of M1 (in 1988). The SV1 makes me want a Kronos because I just redcouvrir Korg sounds.

    I really like its keyboard, it feels like my heavy trs U1. For the rest .... even the concept of this instrument makes its limits, but also market choice! For sound, a combination of 05RW (15 years) and Triton Rack (10 years?) Offers idem. (PS: Only one connect Midi! Of that "moqueton" ... outrageous).

    Vintage is a plus..

    The Korg SV-1 73 is a very high quality compact and portable digital piano that is vintage. So get rid of all that bulky vintage gear and go with the KorgSV-1 73. This board has very high quality sounds for such a little board its very powerful. The sounds on this board are amazing and will surprise everyone from the pro down to the beginner. The Rhodes on the Korg SV – 17 3 are very high quality and they are my favorite sound that the Korg produces.

    The KorgSV-17 3 is very stable and sturdy, its built to last like most of the other models that Korg makes. Korg is known for bringing high quality gear no matter whether its vintage or not. Korg has always had the upper hand over other co…

The Rhodes on the Korg SV – 17 3 are very high quality and they are my favorite sound that the Korg produces.

    The KorgSV-17 3 is very stable and sturdy, its built to last like most of the other models that Korg makes. Korg is known for bringing high quality gear no matter whether its vintage or not. Korg has always had the upper hand over other companies when it comes to sounds. Korg produces very warm and rich full sounding instruments.
    If you use this board live, that’s how you will get the most out of it. It has a beautiful live sound and look for vintage gear. This board is top of the line, unfortunately is its priced a little high in my opinion. But all of Korg’s gear is pretty high priced. But they stand behind the product that they create and they don’t do price cuts often. So if you get a good deal on the KorgSV -17 3 then I suggest you get it. This board is stocked with beautiful electric sounds.
    You can even connect via USB to your computer to get more sounds and keep your board updated. I am very happy with my decision to give the KorgSV-17 3 a try. This board is worth the money if you are willing to invest. So if you need a high quality vintage electric piano make the investment in this one.

    I'll give my opinion on this keyboard I tried a full hour in the store. My personal comparisons are:

    - A North electro 2
    - A Nordstage (version 88 and also hit waterfall).
    - The Kawai MP8.
    - The sounds of piano and acoustic electro various workstation market.

    - Ergonomics and use.

    It is the strong point of the machine. The interface is amazing, it is dessuite "inside". We understand very quickly how it works, everything is in front.

    The touch is good but not extraordinary. It is above Nordstage 88 (I like that personal touch at all levels), a hair below the Nordstage Compact, well below the Kawai MP8 which for me hit level, is the rolls.

    The touch is good but not extraordinary. It is above Nordstage 88 (I like that personal touch at all levels), a hair below the Nordstage Compact, well below the Kawai MP8 which for me hit level, is the rolls.

    - Sounds and effects.

    - The effects are of excellent quality, I was really amazed. It sounds, it really grain.
    - Simulations of preamp I have not found it great ... It saturates a little on the lamp, but it makes little difference, not even a little heat.
    - The piano sounds are comparable to what korg (top version). It is very very good, really, though usually made Korg piano sounds very average. This is below what can be done Yamaha, and below the piano Nordstage.

    - EP (Wurlitzer 200A, Clavinet, Rhodes etc etc ...). It is expected that the instrument, and the Hammond, and it is clear that ... the appointment is missed. The least we can say is that Clavia is well ahead. Whether a simple or a Nord Electro Norstage it sounds infinitely better, I was expecting a little about what kind of result, but not at this point. SV 1 person flat in this register, not the expressiveness of the Clavia stuff when you attack, the statement is immediate and without appeal, no grain ... No soul. It's still OK, but really nothing more. I think a big Motif XS offers you the same easily.

    - Hammond, far below what electronica offers north (I do not even speak of a C1 ...).

    - Violin and other ... : The violins sounded really great, the characteristic of Korg in the register. Anyway, both have a Workstation for that. The few synths are available ... gadget.

    Ultimately, this machine offers multiéchantillonage vintage machines with all the "next" to do "as at the time" (simulated preamp, lamp, very good effects classics of the time ...), but nothing more .

    Finally: We have an average unit, with a super multi-effects and a good hit ... too expensive for what it is, and well below what the competition offers in the registry. In the register of PE (where it is expected) it is barely better than the workstation's time, which is not eligible for an instrument meant to be "highly specialized".

    This choice of purchase is to be done: Certainly not.

    <span class="postbody">Hello,

    I am not at all agree with this description.
    It's unbelievable, the more I play the SV1 and the sound of a Steinway is surprisingly realistic. I listened carefully to this video Corea

    and I have to tune up .... the same sound (except the hand play on the strings!) with the same dynamics (pp to ff with the finest and most powerful).
    Frankly, I do not regret my Nord Stage 88, there was a real feeling of playing on a real Steinway! The dynamics are incredible, PP to FF, everything is there. Mechanical noise gives the impression that the instrument live is amazing!

    I recommend it to all those who want a good acoustic piano, a Rhodes and a Wurlitzer super amazing.
    on the other hand you need a good amplifier for the instrument to give the best of himself. I tried it in stores on small powered speakers, and I was not convinced, but once plugged into my amp ... WOW! TOP!

    My first review, very positive on the SV1, has mysteriously disappeared ....

    I want to understand why.

    For how long have you been using it? 3 weeks

    What thing do you like most/least about it?

    +: Sound, touch, Steinway, the Rhodes, ease, effect, look

    -: Some unnecessary sounds

    Did you try many other models before getting this one? yes, all the competitors

    What is your opinion about the value for the price? about right

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ... no problem

    <p class="MsoNormal"> I use only a few days, but I can already put a notice on the quality of this instrument.

    Design-copy, this retro look with large front buttons wurlitzer style I love!

    The manufacturing-general is very good, even if it is manufactured in China.

    -The sounds are very well made, it is even what is best in the field with keyboard because to have used since the first electro north to north course I can just tell you that it is actually a matter of taste because the 2 are really good.

    -N who has never owned the original instruments it emulates I rely on my experience with the North course I loved, I'd say the big difference between the 2 for me is that the keyboard seems more "in the original imitation "but the SV1 him better in" interpretation "of the game and also a bit more" realistic "because the keys are released and the sound of metal, but knowing he will soon clavia update it (if they have not already).

    -The pleasure of play is huge.

    -Touching for me is the best I could test, (this is only my opinion).

    <p class="MsoNormal">

    <p class="MsoNormal"> -The dynamic is great.

    <p class="MsoNormal">

    <p class="MsoNormal"> - A small precision, sustain pedal type and also a partition door comes with a pity that the feet do not and it would have been faultless.

    <p class="MsoNormal">

    <p class="MsoNormal"> -The biggest downside for me is the recording of only 8 memories, which for me will be a problem, but I have not yet installed the VS-1 editor (included with the keyboard) which according to my reading allows change all the sounds of sv-1 including nonvolatile memories, so to see the use ...

    <p class="MsoNormal">

    <p class="MsoNormal"> -I forgot to say that the quality of the effects in general is excellent!

    <p class="MsoNormal">

    <p class="MsoNormal"> "I do not regret my choice because, surely I will complete later with a Nord Electro 3 for the best in the field of organ and also other colors pianos (like the harpsichord, vibes, mellotron), which will complement this well in fact I fall for the look and fun to play well on top and sounds that vibrate.

    That's it, I took the leap. I bought it yesterday in 88 key version for 1870 euro. I was looking for a keyboard that would really feature the piano / rhodes. I found and I'm not disappointed. I find the feel rather good, a little less than the Kawai MP8 though. The two main piano sounds are excellent and can be easily retouched or via commands from the control panel SV1 either through the software. Similarly, it is possible to adjust according to taste mechanical noises: + or - present.

    It's a keyboard that has a lot of possibility on which I enjoy playing.

    Not a keyboard that has great pretensions to anything noon. Similarly, the organ sounds are not the ones I prefer and should be dropped strings, choir and bass. I have another keyboard to it for me.

    I've had a month I have tried many keyboards course before making my choice. I love the lack of LCD screen and its incredible personality. This choice and totally irrational because it has huge flaws: no split, no wheel, not enough presets, but p. .... it sounds too good and when looking around found sounds crazy. It is an instrument in hand, we like it or not. Report quaiité price? Well uh, I should, then it is good.
