    For how long have you been using it? 2 months

    Did you try many other models before getting this one? yes, all that existed

    What is so special that you like best?

    Rhodes sounds (really amazing, who knows a bit the real thing) and piano, the touch, the possibility of new samples (contrary to what has been written elsewhere), the look, the possibility of have a 73 keys, all excellent effects.

    What is so special that you like least?

    the cover and the stand not yet available in late January ...

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?

    Inflationary trends are not encouraging :-)

    It is an incredible instrument, one must know a little play for sure, but it motivates me to work.

    For how long have you been using it?
    -1 Weeks

    Did you try many other models before getting this one?
    North

    What thing do you like most/least about it?
    Pros:
    -Easy to use basic (knowing that many parameters 'hidden' are very accessible if you plug a USB pc)
    -The sounds in general (I have a true Rhodes and honestly I found my sound very soon! But the sound of Wurlitzer, Clavinet of, pianos are falling)
    -Design (he of the mouth this keyboard!)
    -The tube sound a bit like cradingue love!
    -Built-in effects!

    Cons:
    -Some sounds do not care where (VS = Vintage Stage, they explain to me what the sound of the DX7 Rhodes pourave is one for example!) And could be replaced by o…

    Cons:
    -Some sounds do not care where (VS = Vintage Stage, they explain to me what the sound of the DX7 Rhodes pourave is one for example!) And could be replaced by other sounds (it n 'there is only one example of the mellotron, why not more?)
    By default, all sounds have reverb which personal troubles me a bit (I do not like the reverb in general) as m'enfin can change very easily via the USB is not really a problem!

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?
    Huge! Just for the sound of the Rhodes it's worth it. And given that there is a sling load of other sounds the question does not even arise!

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
    YES YES YES YES three times!! It's been quite a while that I was looking for this kind of keyboard with realistic sounds good. Korg and there was a job almost perfect (but honestly the least are very very small minority).

    Excellent Q / P!

    Korg SV-1 73Published on 04/12/11 at 02:20
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Used for a good month, still mostly at home. Qq tried other models of piano / synth touch piano store. I bought this model because I did not sub (or usefulness "pure pro") for a northern course, deep down I do not really use synths, touch, and that the effects on Korg are better than the north, and the ratio q / p is simply excellent.

    (+): I love love the rhodes, and ALL the effects, it is serious gun. Amp emulations are really excellent, with a real grain and a beautiful drive / saturation, which is rare, you just have to work a chouille. Record overall very realistic and organic all sounds nice touch, there is already much fun to compose himself, and even more in groups. Very good XLR o…

    (+): I love love the rhodes, and ALL the effects, it is serious gun. Amp emulations are really excellent, with a real grain and a beautiful drive / saturation, which is rare, you just have to work a chouille. Record overall very realistic and organic all sounds nice touch, there is already much fun to compose himself, and even more in groups. Very good XLR outputs and headphones, and even then it sounds in mono on my bass amp. The pianos are great for the game pop / rock (but perhaps the classical purists will not find their account when the expressive hand on PP for example, is really a key stage for group play, it looks fantastic like that on the piano / rhodes / organ - and clavicle also once worked, especially with "amp" - but should not ask him to be a true full tail). Otherwise, fairly good general construction, and it has to face. Not too bad of a master keyboard if completed with a control surface, but not so good is his world, and it has no aftertouch.

    (-) No split: while there is anything ... Incomprehensible! Also not scalable for a penny: no card, let alone Roma REAL new sounds possible via USB, in the end we may just rework what is already inside, even if it's already good, that basically it as it opens a lot of universes, even modern ones, if you look a little on the issue, and that's clearly not sold like that, it stings a bit in 2011 the need to buy a second keyboard to promptly other synth sounds, and can not really add any other vintage sounds (eg other rhodes). Big black spot also for setting output level following instruments / presets: it goes in all directions, one is obliged to publish all levels with the computer for our presets, sometimes through tinkering with the emulation of "amp" is definitely not the foot (especially when your name "stage" something and slap the slot "plug and play"). Lot of time in the changes of sound, even with the preset buttons (which could be preloaded them at least, always with a view "stage" something). Effects changes also stop the sound often is not cool (especially when you're on "stage"). No tap tempo for effect "echo" is completely con ... The effects are not backed up separately, it is painful to redo everything when you work a piece by seeking coherence between different keyboards, the editor at least they could include something about it. And then finally on the side "stage", a small additional button to "bank" for example 8 * 8 presets, it would almost cost nothing more, and it would have arranged a lot of people without losing its soul the beast ... Some artifacts point slightly changing the rendering of the notes on his grave very particular, and also more bizarrely the middle of the clavicle, albeit subtle. Finally, the keyboard is not bad at all in the touch (although slightly heavier than a traditional piano study), but it is also true that lateral play, now I do not "sense" not it is necessarily dangerous to life ... Remains that the future will tell us if the quality of substantive appointment is on that side.

    In short, Korg has still made a very good keyboard, makes for good fun with the sounds of legendary vintage keyboards although realistic, piano and strings ultimately pleasant enough. The qualities of emulation, effects, and game are certain, and all that goes nickel / mix group. Some caveats, however, who do not have a keyboard "pure pro" as the North Course (or the Yamaha S90), and not so "plug and play it when we want to make attacks are" stage " keyboard ... But I think it will satisfy all but in a lot of musicians, even demanding, thanks to its quality / price / touch / pleasure (well it's more a metaphor than a real relationship, but you'll probably understand what I mean): I think it is unmatched on the market today.

    PS: if Mr. Korg hear me - Please Make a pedal with all these effects and amp emulations / lamp (and with 8 * 8 presets / switches)! Especially for the bass (I'm also bassist)!!

    The big class Keyboard Vintage

    Korg SV-1 73Published on 04/06/11 at 08:18
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Almost a year and a half of use and I can tell you that Live with lights and sounds of small strips Rhodes takes the full extent. on the other hand we must work its sounds upstream because there are some differences in levels between the different sounds.
    In addition it is fully compatible (Velocity, Pedals, after touch) with Scarbee Vintage Rhodes (which I think is the best Rhodes emulation ever, and I may have heard the real Ring).

    I've had it 4 months before I tried the Roland RD700, Yamaha CP33, the Kawai Mp5. I wanted a piano sound very close to an acoustic piano and keyboard but not too heavy (see the RD700 which I found tiring to play) I play mostly on acoustic (blues, jazz). The Korg SV1 is perfect! I take a lot of fun playing it, and in addition it is light to carry, it's also what I was looking for. The Rhodes sounds are very realistic too. Like least some sounds that I never use unnecessary. I do it again without hesitation that choice, I still find the price a bit high (for me I received a promo at less than 1500 € for the 73 notes is what decided me!).

    Best of Vintage! and more if needed ...

    The best sounds of Rhodes and Clavinet, undoubtedly, wurlitzer not bad either, but I think sometimes they sound a little "midi". I think the pianos are very much contrary to some opinions, even if it is true that we must adapt to the touch. They are excellent compared to the previous generation of digital pianos. In stereo they sound better than the North Piano, but in mono it's true that they are behind. We can finally play the same classic. The violins / string are excellent. The organs are also not bad compared to many keyboards (but the keyboard remains the benchmark for sure on organ). Some other sounds are irrelevant.
    The effects are sublime. It's really the strength of this keyboard…

    The effects are sublime. It's really the strength of this keyboard. It can convert sound to infinity, and find the sounds used in the years 60-70. You will not find better among competitors, that's clear. I also have a pedal connected directly to the SV1 allows me to have a pure sound. Ca groove a max, it's bold, it's deep and warm.
    Only 2 complaints: the editor bugue sometimes, and my sounds were all cleared by downloading a custom package offered on the net. And mute when changing his .. it's a bit of shame for a keyboard that level and it is not negligible.

    After test store, the SV1 is a good machine that can compete with the Roland
    and other keyboards on several points:

    1 / Rhodes sounds are amazing; test and have fun playing "Riders in the Storm"-Doors-
    forcing the potentiometer Reverb / / current / / Amplifier 4 / / 5 - it sounds very loud!

    2 / Wurlitzer sound sounds good - Logical Song! - Supertramp - Feel So the potentiometer!

    3 / pianos sounds pretty classic Jazzy (Steinway) that would appeal to Jamie Cullum (jazzblues)
    or very upright piano - Let It Be - Beatles -

    4 / Hammond sound is modeled more for rock (Deep Purple), but
    also for blues and jazz (style Ten Years After, Al Kooper,) / /

    sound grain Hammond takes the 60 -

    Korg 'm more than send a copy of his or SV1 me share his cons
    M1 aims venerable old!

    In summary, machine a little expensive to buy (1000 euros would have been reasonable)
    but worth its weight in its ergonomics vintage, its look and its samples.

    Do not hesitate to make a keyboard SV1 - master!

    After testing in my favorite store, the SV1 is a good machine that can compete with Roland
    and other keyboards on several points:

    Note that at first glance the keyboard is attractive and ergonomically well designed;
    without manual, G managed to edit some sounds in the test below.
    To touch the lines are nice and its sensory aspect (the first flirtation is important!)
    full of good feeling ...... we want to enjoy it ..... we want to marry!
