Yeah, they could call it the 'Mion' or something.

Actually, they would probably call it the Ion... :D jk jk jk

But really, the Micron should have simply adopted a matrix editor. It would keep the footprint of the synth small, and it would still be usable.

Or if somehow Akai reduced the Micron/Ion engine into a Blofeld style box for cheap.
now. . that is a serious idea!

I was actually at one point considering buying a micron and mutilating it. . removing the circuitry from the keyboard shell and fitting it into a box. . I never did get to look inside one though and see how much space circuit boards took up.

Yeah I've been debating selling my ms2k and instead getting an ion, but that keyboard it too bulky. It would be nice chop the keys off that thing
