Korg make some of the best workstations going but, to me, have failed to make a lasting impression with their stage piano range. This is just too "gimmicky" for one of the "big boys" in keyboard musical instruments.
It doesn't even sound good! Have I missed something here?
As for their stage pianos, KORG SV-1 sounds completely OK for me - if I had a chance to find one somewhere near, I would probably never be tired with playing.
I agree it does seem rather gimmicky. But in the YouTube clip it wasn't given the best of demos. This next clip gives a slightly better appreciation of the instrument, and it's instability - you could say it really 'rocks'. The last voice that was demo'ed sounds interesting.
Would I want one? Nope. But I guess Korg realise there is a market there, however small.
