Too many to mention. mangle your mix in ways youve never thought of. most suitable for live performance and particularly effective when used well in, or coming upto a break. have to put design in features since the unit is top notch. looks the muttts nuts with awesome lighting from behind the screen at the top illuminating the make and model in blue and different coloured lights for the different programs illuminating the pad in different colours in the opposite diagonal corners on the main pad

Price paid: £270

UTILIZATION

Really simple to use and install. it is worth reading the manual as its only about 4 pages but was installed and up and going in about 5 minutes. user interface is the main point of this unit. to allow you to control two effect parameters with one interface. namely the x,y pad pressed to activate the effect

SOUND QUALITY

Clean as a whistle and as clear as a bell. honestly.... i havent the experience to rate the sound quality though judging by the fact that radiohead have used them on stage and some of Britains biggest clubs have them installed id say as good as what youd ever get

OVERALL OPINION

Not too sure about the robustness of these units. they feel ok but make horrible sounds when placed on a surface if the last mm or 2 is dropped. should be fine with a flight case though but i couldnt find any specifically for it. Also the unit used to misbehave with the effects depth knob acting as if it were full on unless moved slightly then it would register its correct position.

i love this little magic box, korg have definately pulled out all the stops on this one. the problem with the effects knob seems to have subsided but this review has reminded me to contact Korg about the fault. despite the dodgy pot and the weird rattling when relocating this box still deserves 9, at least. cant give 10 for things with faults
