The OASYS will always be a great synth, but it served mainly as an R&D platform for synths to follow. Korg has been on a roll with all kinds of interesting products, most of which can trace their technology to the OASYS. And Korg must certainly know how hard it is to sell an $8000 synth during a recession.

It's pretty cool how the evolution of ideas that came from the Oasys and the MS2000 both met up in the Radius, specially when you consider that you can get the Radius expansion for the M3 which together is basically the Oasys. Then theres like.. all these bastard little children running around and spin offs :P
