Also, thought I'd clear up a few things about the panel buttons for those that looked in dismay (myself included). I mean Theater Organ. Are you kidding me?
The colored buttons however simply do the same thing that Category Search does on the Motif, except now you don't have to menu dive to get there. Sure it's eye candy, but it is very useful when creating new sounds. And they're not hard-coded either.
The Reverb button does the same thing the Master Effect button does on the Motif. There's a final reverb effects processor before everything goes out the pipe and you can turn it off or on. I like it myself and use it a lot to quickly clean up things for programming.
I was never a big knob
tweaker live, so I don't really miss the user controls. I usually have my fingers on the keys, not a knob or slider.
I like where the patch (registration) buttons are on the front. Thought I wouldn't, but I was wrong. They got the panel angle just right although they are spaced a little wide. The < Prev | Next > buttons for selecting banks should have been together as well, not at each end of the thing. Duh.
The leslie and organ presets are truly awful, especially the leslie. But there are some really, really good leslie and organ sounds in there, trust me. I gigged with a B3 for years.
Haven't gotten around to the percussion sounds yet. Still drooling over the synth sounds.
