Seed B.'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" For sounds Rodhes or Wurly"

Korg SV-1 88
8 octaves, heavy touch.


The touch is nice. I use the keyboard for its own sounds pianos and electric pianos, and also as a master keyboard. Only constraint, there is no pitch bend, so if need these controllers, you have to go to another master keyboard.

The SV1 is very simple to use, no need manual for most cases.


I use it mainly to the sounds of electric pianos. The amp simulations are nice, ditto for some effects, such as stereo tremolo.
The piano sounds also suit me.

I do not use other types or organ synth sounds, with also more legitimate instruments on these "types" of sounds


I use it for 1.5 years. For the price, I am quite satisfied.

I just have a slight doubt on the robustness of the keyboard after a number of years, compared to my kurzweil K2500X

Korg SV-1 88
I love the SV1, I use it for 2 years now. I played a lot of Roland RD300 and RD700 SX, I admit it's disorienting to find themselves behind the SV1. I love all the sounds Rhodes electric pianos. The effects are cool. However, I find the handling is more complex organs, although it sounds pretty good. I think the media are really powerful, be careful and that's why I use a volume pedal. Touch is very correct. Alas, I encountered a bug with the processor and the keyboard is left at the factory, it has been 3 months and I have no news. I cared and I do not understand how the processor was able to let go. I rather doubt the solidity of the machine. Otherwise the software is great, super simple, manageable, sound banks are fun and you can download more on the Korg website, the package 2.

Korg SV-1 88
I have the SV-1 for 2 years now.
I am not disappointed with this purchase, it's a really nice keyboard to play.

The keyboard sounds (Piano, Rhodes and Clavinet) are really excellent and quick adjustments. I also like the patch violin velocity sensitive.

I also have a Nord Electro 3 (for the B3 organ), and although I find the sounds of the SV-1 Rhodes richer harmonically speaking. That said I've never played on a real Fender Rhodes then it may be biased.

This is a numeric keypad expected to play keyboard sounds, and in this class is really good. This choice I would do without hesitation.

Thelyckos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The keyboard of my dreams!"

Korg SV-1 88
I use the SV1 a few weeks but I had tested several times in store. I waited until the price down for me to pay because it was really the keyboard I was looking for. What attracted me immediately is the quality of samples and made the touch of each sound.
The settings are easily accessible (simple buttons on the front) and allow a greater freedom. In addition, the bundled software allows for many settings even more accurate and download sound banks.
More detail, I would say that the sounds are perfect vintage made up of key sounds (they went on a sampler produced by each key keyboard type: Rhodes, clavinet, organ ...) but more importantly, accessible settings such as virtual amplifier or modulation effects are simply stunning. In a few simple buttons, you get an original sound, aged, distorted, air, or even aggressive.
The SV1 is a must in terms of key stage and allows for many possibilities in the studio. on the other hand, if you are more looking for a workstation, go your way. The SV1 is more oriented towards 60.70 or even 80 sounds and gives the impression that Korg has brought together all the best keyboards in worship of these years a single keyboard.
In short, an indispensable tool when you are fan of vintage sounds. A must have, at least try once in your life!
