I don't know, the camo X50 was pretty bad too.
I forgot about that one :lol:

As long as they don't start an interest group for their VA synths called the King Korg Klub, or something along those lines, I think we're in the clear!
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

The REV2 is pretty exciting. I almost find it hard to believe that it's more powerful and cheaper than the 08, it seems things are getting more competitive, and that's good for us :D

I don't like what Korg is up to however. They seem apposed to making larger synthesizers, and thus just keep walking in circles, doing the same thing over and over, not knowing what to do next. They're probably making a killing off all of these though.
