Wasn't impressed by the keyboard - I thought it was the 88note version, but it couldn't have been with such a light touch keyboard. Didn't feel connected to me. Especially on the piano patches.
It took nearly 5 mins to boot up. Wow. I thought my Kurz was slow!
Piano was nice but had no body to the sound and with the keys the unit had, I couldn't really dig in to the sound. Probably good for the Wakemanesque brigade though - very good attack to the sound. EPs were better - nice bit of body there.
It does overlap patches. Finally! Only a couple of decades since they last had a synth that did that!
Sound was much better than recent Korgs - down to having decent synthesis engines and not relying so much on the effects. Good move Korg.
Too many of the combis had Karma turned on!! Bah!! Fail.
Also, if you have a proper organ sim, then I'd recommend following Kurz by having some buttons on the top to control leslie speed, key click, etc - if they are already there then mark them clearly!
Probably the best Korg in a long, long time (excluding the Oasys : a) I haven't tried one and b) I never really thought of it as a mass produced unit, more of a boutique synth experiment).
But still not enough to lure me away from the Kurzweil owners club.
Just thought I'd share
