I just bought a N264 from Craigslist. The case shows much wear. But man does this thing have some hot signal. The amps in these things cut through! I play in church and people told me how much better I sounded. I have played Motifs and Fantoms. This old board has the hottest signal. Plus, that old Al2 provides some very familiar electric pianos heard on recordings. I love the velocity switched patches and basses too. I have a Korg Microstation with the M3 engine. The older N264 is almost as good sounding. Very impressive. I'll keep it!

I bought my N264 in 2003. I sold an Ensoniq ESQ-2 for this board. from the jump,she was a work horse, stable & clean. The "N" is also hellified in the studio.Being an ex B3 single act player,I also bought the Korg Triton Extreme 76 for my rig. The N264 sound compliments the Triton Extreme beautifully and I can create/modify all sounds.The Extreme sequencer is my backing band with (16 musicians) allowing me to do full performances with duel board sounds. I don't midi the "N" or load floppys because she still holds her own. At times I gig with full funk/Go Go bands. I leave the Extreme at home and just take the N264. She cuts thru an gives up any sound needed.The best sound for me on "N" the B3 organ sounds.Changing sounds in a live band is super fast. During my single act gigs,I play songs ranging from "Phantom of the Opera to Atomic Dogg.Wish Korg kept the N264,but then again by being obsolete,I have the unique performance system with both my Korgs for all types of gigs. I will never sell neither. Randell Briggs www.tronicvision.com

As a Korg service tech along with all other brands, I have used, serviced and played every Korg synth made.

The N264/364 while being somewhat dated by the technology is STILL a premium sounding synth. The feature set of the 264/364 is expansive enough to qualify to be in anyones musical stable.

Do I want a new OASIS? Yes. Will I retire my 264? NO.

If only Korg could write owner/service manuals as well as they create the electronics. *sigh*

Though I have used many keyboards, I found Korg N364 is the best. Almost any tone in the world can be produced. The most valuable advantage of it is the simplcity in sequencing. Even a child can make songs. The drum kits include almost all oriental instruments. Indian instrument tabla in N264 is an added advantage to indian artists. the only disadvantage is its delay in loading PCGs and songs. I will rate it as the most usefull keyboard in the world.

I have owned one since they came out in 1997. It was one of my first keyboards (sans the Roland em303 when I was like 15), and I still pull it out when I want an off the wall pad or a warm piano. I now own a studio here in Nashville and I am surprised how many musicians like to pull this "dinosour" out because it has all the old Korg sounds they like and then some. Some of the things I did'nt like about it was I thought the sequencer was a tad bit on the lite side, I could'nt really use it live because it never held enough for a full show. And you had to load into it from the disk, unlike the Roland XP-80 which allowed me to go straight from disk. Other then that this thing was a work horse and was great to pull out live for a hard pounding B3 sound or the nice piano. Oh and what drugs was the person on that decided what grouping would go on with the sounds? I mean they are REALLY hard to find anything on it.
