        Comments about Korg Microstation Micro synth w/Sequencer:

        I was looking for a decent entry level synth workstation. I compared various ones in reviews and feature specs. Over all the Korg seemed the best to suit my needs. THe one thing that wil take a bit of getting used to is the smaller keys, but that is a minor thing for me.

          Korg does not make these any longer. Not sure what they will replace it with, but it has a great sound for the money. I use mine on recordings, and it sounds very B3.

            Only had it 2 weeks and have used it for several rehearsals and gigs.
            Great sounds. Only con is how in a live situation you can't easily get from bank to bank.
