interesting.

Im curious as to the pricing and placement in the line. I thought the R3 was meant to replace the microkorg, so this is meant to be cheaper still?

It's akin to the situation with major car manufacturers such as mercedes and audi et al, with an attempt to provide a product for any tiny little gap available in the market.
