The new N-Series Music Workstations from Korg are the latest in a long line of incredibly popular keyboards that stretch back to the legendary Korg M1 (which has actually surpassed the DX7 as the best-selling synth ever!). Featuring the world renowned AI2 synthesis engine, the new "N"s offer unprecedented power and playability in an affordable package. Price of the 61-note N364 is just $1900 (that's list, of course), while the 76-note N264 carries a price tag of just $2400.
What do you get for your hard-earned dollars? Well, first of all, both models feature velocity and aftertouch sensitivity, of course, plus a sophisticated 16-track, 32,000 event, onboard sequencer, and an arpeggiator that lets you create arpeggios over a four-octave range (up, down, Alternate One and Two and random). You also get not one, but two of Korg's superb-sounding stereo multi-effects processors.
But what about the sounds? The N-Series instruments are literally crammed full with a staggering 936 programs and combinations based on 8MB of PCM ROM data featuring 430 Multisounds and 215 drum sounds. There are even 128 General MIDI programs available for those of you who already have sequences saved in that format. Of course, all of these sounds get processed by the ultra-powerful AI2 Synthesis System, the same sound engine found in the company's 01/W and X-Series instruments.
These keyboards also feature Korg's new RPPR Mode - Real-time Pattern Play and Record - which lets you save musical phrases and ideas as patterns (sort of like a drum machine). You can then play patterns back by simply pressing the key you've assigned it to. The N-Series has 100 RPPR pattern memory locations which you can store on floppies via the built-in 3.5" 2HD/DD floppy drive.
