Korg ES1 and ES1mkII question.

Hey there slutz.
I am going to grab a Korg ES1 or ES1mkII very soon, but I was wondering if anybody out there knew the differences between the two.
Any help is always appreicated.thumbsup

In the Mk2 they added a 'Mod Delay' effect and removed one of the existing ones (Wah? Isolator?), although I think I read they added it back in with a software update when people complained they missed it.

I've got a mix of the Mk1s and Mk2s here. The Mk2 are more solidly built yet they were made in China instead of Japan. I'm not a big fan of the main encoder on the Mk2 series, the 'spin with your finger' alpha-dial of the Mk1 is far faster if you've got a lot of scrolling to do, which is quite a bit when you're editing/chopping samples. Also for live/jamming use, I think you'd select a pattern faster on the Mk1.
