This is my second time around with the 707. I really bought it again because I wanted keytar capabilities in my studio, as a walkabout controller for my Yamaha EX7, Kawai K5000 and Akai S5000. But when I plugged it into my main mixing board, effects and all...I thought, DAMN what a cool little synth! :-) It really deserves some honorable mention. The layerable 4op FM sounds are really cool...especially when I use them as the "attack" layered with my other synths. Sound great for funk and reggae...and what some other guy said on here about being "modular" like...is dead on! Especially when you layer the thing with other synths. Fantastic! So what will I do? Maybe sample the 707 with another synth and make a whole folder of duophonic programs with my Akai sampler. It's true the 707's 4-operator sounds are somewhat thin and cheesy...but they are somehow essential too...in an elementary kind of way. Don't spend $600 or more on another keytar until you try this little bugger out. It's unique and rather versatile...and cheap as hell. Buy it, sell it...buy it again! A nice little whore to keep around the studio and slap her ass now and then to get a good squeal. (Just kidding, seriously!) :-)

i've got three months ago a 707 for 100 Euro in perfect condition but i replaced the internal battery, so all the presets were deleted during changing the battery. After that i started to create my own sounds and i must say 707 can sound like a modular monster ! it produces very complex pecussive and agressive FM-stuff. In my opinon Korg 707 was one of the last cool and organic synth of Korg. It can easy kick Microkorg or radias away.

One of the worst sounding synth I ever owned. I used it only like strap-on masterkeyboard. There is no usuable preset,but two holds for the strap can be quite usuable (there are just few instruments with these holds with dynamic keyboard e.g. Roland AX-7 -is too much expensive for this fun)

Bought mine last year locally for $50 just to use as a MIDI controller but I'm quite impressed with its flexible programming. I've read the negatives about early FM synthesis but I like the noisy quality of the synth engine on the 707. I also like having real-time control of the filter (though it is very squelchy.)

I'm only using the presets but hope to pick up either a RAM or ROM card for it soon. I really like the synth orchestra and brass tones (they are very early '80s!) and the 707 has a very believable Wurlitzer electric piano tone. And it's very portable. My one complaint is that the velocity sensitivity seems a little off. I have to hammer the keys to get it to respond.
