Very limited features. The key about the EMX-1 is its ease of use. Again this is a GREAT "first synth". Noobies won't be bogged down, it definitely has a low learning curve.

Price paid: 800$ (factory price)


This is the key here. Exceptional ease of use on the EMX-1. I really want to put a thank you out to Korg for making a synth that a noob can pick up and start making dance/techno/trance, even DnB. This is a AWESOME learning tool for new guys and will get you the basics on producing really fast. There has never been an easier starting place.


The synthesis engine on the EMX-1 (the same as the microkorg) is a decent but lacking digital analog engine. Compared to most other analog modeling synths out there, you will be dissapointed. However, for a beginner with little knowledge of synth programming or just looking for a first step synth, it delivers. The sound can sound very "digital" at times, very "tinny" and metallic. It takes some really good tweaking to get a phat analog warmth to it, even though korg puts a vacuum tube to add "warmth". Its hard but it IS possible.


Very durable, metal/steel plating, sturdy construction. Only complaint is the cheap plastic knobs.

The love I feel for this synth is the kind of love one feels for a first kiss or first love. This synth was my first kiss with music! Brings back a lot of memories. Like all first loves, your time with this synth (if you have the talent and drive) is limited and you will soon move on to more powerful stuff, but my first song was created on this and I will never forget what the EMX-1 gave me; the gift to make music for the first time in my life!
