It reintroduced ribbon controls on synths. Has whut Korg called the LOG, basicly a pitch control wheel (centered)with the said ribbon control on it. It also has 2 more wheels and 4 knobs... 1995 or 1996 knobs was a reinvention to synths.... Like I said Sounds excelent. Editing is not for the fain't at heart... Use software point blank... like most synths of this age it's better to use midi to edit the equipment.

Price paid: $600 USD

UTILIZATION

Excelent for a performance based unit. It was designed as a lead synth... think of the synth parts from "the Killers" you have the idea. It's a secret weapon of mass cone distruction. It gets down lower than Lil John or the skirts in the video's. Great as a lead instrument, Pad, Bass synth. It is probably the most fun unit I have to play with and it has built in efects that sound good. I gave it a 7 because it's not that easy to edit in compared to some of the other gear I own. but again rember this was made in like 1996

SOUNDS

It's the origianl Korg moss bassed synth... It's monophonic... It's probably one of the best voices you will hear..... It's not the only thing in your studio.... unless your talented and have alot of time and software.... Idea Time!) It's the older brother to the Korg Z1, Trinity/triton Moss card, MS2000's, Minikorg. 128 patches based in 2 banks of 64... add a 512kb memory card and you have a "C" bank with 64 or 128 more patches.

OVERALL OPINION

Excelent contruction except top is plastic. Silver unit and 37 keys. No repair job's and likes to spit midi data out.

It's still here in the studio... If it came up missing I would buy another one. Like most of my equipment it has a role to play in my music. It's light in the patch storage area. But it's 10 or so years old now. It still amazes me that it sounds so fresh and so lifelike as a woodwind, Brass, String, or Vintage analog. They are going for $200-350 on ebay... try one!
