The features are absolutely not lacking anything in any way whatsoever, in comparison to the original synths it's even got more features.
If you don't already know how to use the original synths you may need to invest some time in that but the standalone and vst interface is really easy to use.
The sounds are absolutely unbelievable. The Legacy package contains soft synths of the MS-20, Polysix, Wavestation and the Legacy Cell in which you can combine these different synths and their effects. I've played both the original MS-20 and Polysix and I must say I was totally blown away by the accuracy in which these lagendary synths are reproduced. There are even extra options that the original synths didn't have. For instance, the original (monophonic) MS-20 can now be turned into a 32 voice counting polyphonic synth. The same goes for the Polysix. The MS-20 also has it's additional unison unit built in.
I've never had any problems with the software besides the fact that you really need a heavy processor to deal with these synths. I've got a Sony VAIO laptop with a 3gHz processor and if I run about 6 of these synths at the same time (about half of them having lots of voices and the other half one or two) you can almost litterally see little heatwaves rising from my beloved computer.
I absolutely LOVE the Legacy collection because it brings you back to those good old analogue days. The love factor is increased by the MS-20 controller that you get with the package. If you give it some of your love, you'll get back ten times the love you put in.

Since there are three high quality synths and dozens of effects, I'd call it alot of features. This package covers your complete electronic studio needs.
Easy, peasy, lemon squeesy
Omfg, it sounds amazing! I've had it for like a year now and it still amazes me.
The Mod wheel of my MS-20 controller is broken, but I can live with that. No bigger problem. The rest of the package is completely software and it's well programmed. Super ultra mega dega stable.
I bought it when it was new and very expensive (it cost me approx $550), but even though the prices are lower now I don't regret that I bought it. It's an amazing collection of Korg's best products and I strongly recommend it. The MS-20 and its controller only is worth more than the whole package according to me.
