I like my M1 legacy plugin a lot. It's awesome for those short on space.

Am a big fan of the dx7, d50 and m1 era of synths for looks and presets but they take up a lot of room so the plugins are a really useful way to add some of that flavour to your sound.

The Korg legacy sale tempted me so I bought a Korg Nanopad2 on clearance from a local seller for $30, registered the included M1 LE software, then bought the Legacy Collection for $50. Total cost, $80.
Which is less than what a M1 expansion card sells for.
The nanopad turned out to have some cool features and the pads are very good considering the size. The touchpad is good for wavestation joystick control, or ableton control.
I was very tempted today to get an M1R but after using the plugin, which includes every possible card, I am satisfied.
Found the house piano and the "show me love" organ in short order and had a lot of fun.

The M1 is, of all the many many synths I've owned, probably my least favourite. It's insipid, even for a rompler.

Give me a D-50, JD-800 or DX7 over it any day. Now those are SYNTHS!
