This little baby brother of the Ion is a sweet deal especially if you can buy it used. You'll save lots of money if you buy this instead of the ion. Both this and the ion do practically the same thing with the same interface and sounds. This is just 12 keys shorter. It's ease of use is pretty strait forward. Believe me, I own the Microkorg too. This Micron is much eaisier to use due to it's simple little interface. There is an awful lot of knob twidling to get what you want (because there is no room on it to have lots of knobs) and editing the patches can take time, but it is easy. This keyboard, I believe was made to be an accessory to the Ion, but it is a stand alone model especially for how small it is. I really love the funky little presets and step sequensor especially compared to the Microkorg. If you have to choose between this and the Microkorg...please choose this. Also this baby is housed in a steel shell. Nice, compact, strait-forward use...nothing better for it's size and price.

I had others synthesizers else than micron, but micron makes me touch it every day, it have very nice sound, ease on synthesis, and very clean sounding engine. i probably rate it 5/5 if alesis put more knobs and slide on it and not to pointy fragile knobs. alesis should make a midi control or edit board for advanced micron users.

Got a Micron From a pawn shop today in the box for 214.00USD What a buy.. Very nice sounds. Menus are going to take a little time. Kind of a kill-joy. But overall I think this thing is god in a box as for overall performance power(so far).

I fell in love with this little machine as soon as i layed my hands on it! Just play with sounds, twiddles the knobs and be amazed how sweet or how dirty you can make it sound! It is a friendly looking machine that won't scare you off with too many knobs (which is a downside also, but let's continue) and it's really a thing to have!

Since it's affordability is incredible it will attrack many beginners but they may have a second look before they purchase this. Like everybody says the downside of this little monsters is the lack of knobs; programming and editting isn't nearly as intuitive as it should be for someone who wants to pick it up and start jamming right away. For myself using the buid-in stepsequencer is still a bit of a pain (but that can be mostly my own fault).

My conclusion: very, very lovely synth which can sound either brutal or sweet for a lovely. If you are into electronic dance music and you're known with the basics of synthesis this one's a nice addition to your studio. If you're a beginner; this is not the most intuitive synth and be prepared to get frustrated once in a while but the reward is one of the sweetest :)
