Ditto. I keep thinking that I should just buy one and use it as a module. But that seems like a waste.
That's a ridiculous comment. You could get the MS2000 is you wanted a full sized version so badly.
As I stated in the Microkorg Dream thread, there are differences in looks, protability, ease of use, etc. The sound engine might be the same, but the Microkorg feel more like a relative of the MS2000 than a mini-me, and this XL evolution confirms it has turned into a kind of its own.
I don't know if you've had any experience with an MS2000 but I have, and I can tell you it is not a gigging machine, great control, possibly the best interface I've used, but hard as h**l to take around just for a supporting synth I would use a couple of times during a show.
That's why the Microkorg is so interesting to me and many more, who want a portable good synth with good sounds AND nice keys.... and let's face it, this little thing is very popular nowadays.
In my case for example, I played 14 years of piano before getting into synthesizers, synth keys were hard enough to get used to... this would be f**k h**l for my fingers.
