I have a K5000R. I hear complaints about programming for it. I think its synthesis engine is a bit confusing to some. I find it fine. With a technical background, it all seems pretty simple. The interface is not quick and fun to work with, as some synths are. There is a free K5000 SoundDiver edition, which I've used.

I think the Wavestation more easily does smooth and natural sounds than the K5000.
