Korg M3m by louparte
This is a brilliant workstation in a lot of ways. But it's unreliable. It has touch-screen problems. My touch-screen fails regularly. It's quite reliable in that respect. It will reliably fail after 60 minutes of use. So forget gigging with this. Quite a few users have had the same problem.
Now the good points. It's a brilliant-sounding synth with a lot of patches available on the net for free. It has KARMA version 2 built into it. And that is a huge plus IMO. In fact, KARMA is superbly integrated into this synth. The KARMA controls separate it from every other workstation out there, except maybe the OASYS. The 8 touch-pads on the front panel are also fantastic composition tools that KRONOS lacks.
KARMA controls are mostly buttons and sliders. So they are very easy to use. No touch-screen needed unless you want to dig into the menus.
The bad parts of this synth are the unreliable touch-screen & the complicated menu structure inside the touch-screen. Also, if your touch-screen fails, you cannot do basic stuff like load or save anything. There also isn't enough sample RAM on-board. If you want to add 256 Meg, you have to pay Korg about $120 USD.
Bottom line - this is a fantastic-sounding but unreliable and difficult to use workstation. That's my opinion. I'm glad I bought it. I'd buy it again. But I am REALLY pissed at Korg for these stupid touch-screen failures.
