Spend 700, Save 7,000.
I got my Kross in the mail from Sweetwater about a year ago now and am confident in saying that for 700, there is not a better keyboard on the market. If you run out of features to manipulate, or feel as though you don't have enough tools to work with in this device, it may be that you have run out of creativity. If the extensive line up of instrument synths weren't enough, Korg threw in an arsenal of crisp drum and rhythm samples to really flesh out any ideas you may have on the fly or in the studio. It's durable, well thought out, and maybe most important, it's splendidly portable. The thing barely has a weight compared to most keyboards that could do what it does, AND you can pop in some batteries for powered play if there isn't an outlet nearby. Very impressed, and as always, Mr. Michael Eads was extremely helpful in getting me set up and situated.
