Taking all into account, (patch quality, usability, price etc.) this is a fairly competitive machine. As other people have mentioned the preset progs and combis are rather naff. But you can find free O5 banks on the net in syx. which are far superior. Also its worth getting an Editor, cause it is a nightmare to program on a 2mm LCD screen. The GM section is rather handy to have. I have got some fantastic strings on my machine (courtesy of some kind chap on the internet) which would put a Kurzweil to shame. Also some superb solo brass and brass ensembles. Overall i am very pleased with the O5, and wouldn't sell it. In my opinion it was 200UKP well spent.

Nice RAM sounds, easy to use. Optimal for fast song-writing. The solo instruments should be a little bit better.

The GM sounds are pretty thin and the LCD\screen is kinda crammed and confusing, but if you tweak the thing as I do through a signal processor the overall tones at volume max>> are passable . However expect problems switching from your sequencer whilst patching tones ... Right now my Mac crashes in Master Tracks Pro if I even touch the tempo interface...hmmm. annoying But overall I'm happy with my 05R/W.. Cheers from Mike..

I only have my 05R/W since April '97, so i'm still exploring the technical details. But I think I can say something about the way it sounds. If compared to the Roland SoundCanvas products, the Korg has less sounding pianos and guitars. On the other hand the organs, bass-guitars and choir-type sounds are superior. I use the 05R/W in a small setup together with a simple keyboard and a sequencer to write and arrange songs at home. I chose the 05R/w because it has a typically Korg-like mysterious character, a bit like a late night, neon lit scene from a street in a big city in the far east. This is just the thing I need for the kind of music I like to make.

I think this a pretty good unit for the price. I bought mine used and when I'm using the piano sounds when i play chords some of them sound out of tune. Very frustrating. Also can you actually load sounds onto it and is there anyone out there who has the list of presets?
