I liked alot of the effects available to me.The step sequencer wasn't new to me after using Korg's EA-1.I was wanting something more out of the little black box but could never figure out what it was until the EMX-1 came out.Overall the features are average for the price paid,think of it as a very basic production station to get an idea out on.

Price paid:$350 USD


I never really had a problem with the EM-1,it's very quite simple to use and the matrix is a smooth flow compared to the microKorg.Everything on this unit is laid out before your eyes and all you have to do is press a key or tweak a knob and watch the sounds sculpt right before you.


I was quite shocked at the time when I had heard this thing.Although there was alot of mixed opinion about it's sounds,some felt it was bad because it's monophonic while others felt it lacked the sound more costly units had.For the price paid you can tweak the sounds enough to get something other than the factory sounds and still have a great idea come out of it.


Like my EA-1,this is very durable.Although my black paint is starting to chip off in some parts of the unit,it's still very durable and has not broken on me yet.

I can't say I was truly in love,but I was happy with the purchase of this.It gave me a hands on approach,and as I grew to learn this unit every time I used it I also discovered more and more of what I was looking for in a hardware production station.
