keep the korg... you can always have the DX sounds using things like FM7, FM8, Sytrus, FMHeaven, Toxic, Octopus... you'lle never find a good enough Korg DW8000/Ex8000 clone. I compared KOBALT with my EX8000... ehm... keep the Korg...

1)8 voices = 8 filters.
2) Wanker, singular.

Go nitpick elsewhere.

I don't like the personal flaming - inappropriate.

I'd get rid of both and then buy a new synth that inspires new work. Good luck.
