What's the deal with Korg Legacy? On sale everywhere

I've gotten offers from stores thrown at me, real cheap.
So, what's the verdict, is it buggy? Hoggy?
Why is it on sale? I admit I'm sceptical.

Legacy vs. CS80?

It´s a steal!!

Got mine for SEK 1995 incl sales tax. About 250 USD 220 Euro.

1: Wavestation is the bomb. Used to have the EX Keyboard some years ago and regret I sold it. Which was god in a way cos since then I told myself never to sell anything that I buy if I aint got a spare. From what I recall it sounds exactly as it used to only better due to never D/A:s

2: The rest of the bunch is really good. Also have the real Polysix and what seems to be the hardest part in VA modelling are the filters, but it holds up pretty good. What really stands out is the Legacy Cell which is a combo of the MS-20 and PolySix with tsome reverbs and choruses on top. Great presets.

3: It´s a steal.

PS.If you´re on Tiger make sure to download the 1.1.4 version before installing. Had massive trouble with the locking code.

Cheap, I'll better dl some contenders and have a shoot..
I worry about the cpu hit, though.

I bought mine at www.jam.se Believe every store in at least Sweden will sell it for 1995SEK. Jam also have the Arturia Bundle with CS80,MiniMoog,MM and Arp 2600 for what seems to be a nice price.

Watch out. Korg has done this in the past. They make a great product, it fails to sell in the numbers they needed, then they dump it and not longer support it.

I have been taken for two rides by Korg and refuse to get in the car with them again.

The lack of support it´s the thing that scares me.
But i got MS-20 for 500€, i can run as much instances as my PC handles, syncing it thru VST and on top it sounds better than the hardware original.
I brings the Wavestation and the Polysix , plus a very efficient bundle of assorted Fx from filtering to delays and everything in the middle.
This one, Kontak and some nice plugs like UAD and Amplitube, or something and i´m quite set.

It´s amazing the cheesy bass sounds i get from MS 20, Disco at it´s best. but there is more to it.
