Evan, and other knowledgeable ones: I'm a novice - just got a K1 in the hope of learning something about synthesizers. Am thinking about replacing a new ROM chip but haven't got a clue as to whether that's a good idea or how to go about it. Any advice/help will be much appreciated. Thanks. - Michael

Not even close to my type of synthesizer. I prefer analog synths with filters for the sounds. People say this synth has nice strings, but they probably haven't heard a decent mono/polyphonic analog synth. The only decent sound was used by LFO. Probably good as a MIDI keyboard, otherwise this is the synth that made me search out a better one and I've never looked back.

Kawai K1: I painfully loaded and saved all the best patches online in sysex into the 4 available banks and now I have one of the most useful synths in my rack. I have the module and the keyboard. The K1 goes LA is the only bell like patch I use anywhere and the fat poly synth patches just blow the room out. This, the Korg M1 and the Korg DW8000 are the best blending synths for big fat orchestral wallop that I like. Get 4 of these and stack 'em. People are givin em away almost. There is another new world in there.

I have a K1M and ran through its presets recently again after obtaining a memory card for it. Now I can use all those E and e banks in addition to the I and i banks. It has the most minimal interface a synthesizer can have and not be a tin whistle. But, while some of the sounds are, eh, pass them by, some of them, like sax and piano, well, I could feel my eyes widen a little and my mouth involuntarily uttering "Damn...that sounds GOOD..." When you can get that kind of reaction for $100 bucks or so on eBay, you have a winner.
