I have a K5000s and I sadly have to sell it, is the one with the best sound of all my keyboards. I bought it for $400 bot I do not know what the real price is. Please send me an e-mail with the sugest price.

Quite a powerhouse... first, I should mention that I actually have the W version, but since there's no seperate page to review those, I'll do it here. Keyboard action is great... editing can be a bit tedious, but here's the rundown: up to six Additive or PCM sources per patch. Additive sections give you either the first or last 64 of 128 harmonics, adjustable in various groups and each with it's own envelope (!). Additives also gives you a 128-band Formant Filter, with the bands adjustable in various groups or individually, and a global filter envelope. the FF is also modulatable by it's own LFO and/or assignable controllers. Then you have your standard DCO, DCF and DCA sections which all do what you'd expect and are applicable to the PCM sources (which I have never used on mine). Then there is the control section where you assign what does what to what and how much. And a surprisingly decent FX section, with it's own variable routing matrix.

I've gotten some crazy-ass sounds out of this thing (I do sound-design and experimental/electronic music)... the manual is mostly dedicated to the FX section and kind of sucks with regard to adequately explaining the synth engine. For a more thorough understanding of what this beast can do, the Wizoo guide is a must. If you're already synth savy, you should be able to figure a lot out just by poking through the menus. Memory is limited when you use a lot of Additive sources, but I guess that's what the disk drive and sys-ex dumps are for...

I highly recommend this to anyone who is into serious sound-design - though it can be a bit time consuming to gt to where you want to go with it, this machine offers a LOT of possibilities...

The K5000s is one of the most powerful synths I have seen for its price range. As opposed to many synths which simply let you edit preset sounds, this beast allows sound construction with complex harmonics, from scratch! Learning to program the K5ks can take time, but believe me it's worth it. It produces amazing pads which can be programmed to evolve over MINUTES if needed! It also excells at producing hard edged synth stabs and dissonant sounds - it's great for industrial type sounds if that's your thing. The K5ks also boasts a great arpeggiator and has heaps of support sites on the net. If original sample creation is your passion, this synth won't disappoint!

PS Can anyone point me in the direction of arpeggiator patches for the K5000s on the internet?
