The K1 is a good, cheap synth/keyboard.

I like the K1 for strings, pads, organs and woodwinds. It doesn't even come

close on piano or brass. Now that I have a sample based synth (Alesis QSR)

for imitative stuff, I really enjoy using the K1 for synthy sounds. There

are lots of patches around. The keyboard itself has a good feel. Velocity and aftertouch are predictable.

The keys are (mechanically) a bit noisy on release. It makes a good (and cheep)

controller. My only complaint about the midi implementation is that the

joystick info doesn't get sent out except as data entry when editing, and even

then only the x-diminsion. (If you know otherwise, send me email.) It's pretty easy to edit patches even without a computer librarian. I often

find myself tweaking things at practice while my guitar friends do guitar

things. As far as reliability is concerned, I've had mine since '89 and had no

problems.

I just bougth a used K1. May be it's true it is a cheap and old technology synth, but I think it's important to say that as a MIDI controler it really do just fine. I have a Sound Blaster AWE64, and with this sound card I don't care about the defects in its sounds, then I have a good MIDI controler and a dinamic sinth when I want to play around with some folks. And it was CHEAP.
