« Excellent Q / P! »Publié le 04/12/11 à 02:20
(+): 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)!!
