judge for yourself
Like all keys and gear hands on auditioning is best of course.
The drawback is unless you bring a friend who already owns one and is can operate its features you are at the mercy of sales staff who never have even read the manual and can do no more than demo presets.
Thanks to youtube now you can watch and hear someone who has mastered this deep powerfull baby show what you can do .
Go subscribe to 3sleeves's youtube channell ..he has posted a nice set of vids playing great music and better still a whole bunch of tutorials ..Korg thelmselves on their channel also have a bunch of tutorial vids that explain all....then decide..btw 3sleeves shows how easily you can via midi plug the MS into your favorite daw/pc running your favorite vst instruments..to play them from the ms keys and simultaneously live sample them into the ms sample banks to save and play anytime from the ms itself..a killer feature.
