I found the synth in an out of the way music store (not the usual downtown super store) and got it (ex-demo) for a real steal as the owner wanted to move it it and he specializes in guitars.

No regrets. I thought at the time and still do that the sounds are fantastic, especially as a recording/studio instrument.

The N series never took off big time cos' the lack of an expansion port got it a bad press. Well I just had to laugh, because most people are missing out on one of the most playable, great sounding synths Korg had produced without costing an arm and a leg. I don't want an expansion port anyway. Anyone with any sense who wants more sounds adds another instrument (layered) on top.

My only complaint is I don't find setting it up very intuitive/user friendly, but then I'm used to Roland's interface.

Killer sounds. 1. Piano - Great (Not as good as the alesis nano piano but almost there)

& organs

2. Brass - Ultra realistc(Sax, trumpet, tromponte, especially french horn)

3. Bass - Great (nice clean punchy bass)

4. Drums - Good (Very clear and crisp but bass drum could kick more)

5. Guitars - Good (Overdriven guitar sounds good enough for leads

when combined with an oberheim strummer

6. Pads - Excellenet (Warm and rich tones, or dark and daring)

7. Strings - Astounding, (Its a Korg, Need I say more)

8. Keys - Excellent (Great feel, excellent keys. Could play them all


9. Display - Excellent well thought out. (It's great for live perfomances

beacuse the patches can be accesed through a numeric keypad for

quick response, very usefyl) Bottom line: Excellent sound synth. Great for live performances and demos, as well as studio recordings(no noise!!) If you had a choice between the Roland xp-50 and the korg n364. Definetely get the Korg!

I think that the N364 is the most gourgeous workstation i've ever seen.

with it's silver coat and neat pitch control it feels great as my master keyboard.

I don't use the sequencer but in sequencer mode when i work against midi i have en-

countered problems with the combi-sounds i can't get them to work as i want...

They get separeted on the channels and when i have copied them they won't go away.

i have to erase all the data and start all over again...

The sounds of the synt is great and in the studio we have nicknamed it to the

MOVIE SYNTH..cause almost all the sounds could fit in a movie soundtrack..

The string pads are about the best i've ever heard...

Pluses: Great electronic Sounds (pads, lead, etc), too many to choose.

Combos layed out and layered that can stir up your imagination and creativity. Minuses: Don't even think the acoustic instrument sounds are usable. No matter

how well you can program your sounds, piano, strings, guitar sounds do not sound

real at all. Most of these sounds just sound like the old M1, things from

the 80s...

This synth is really good but I have some problems with the sequencer.

I can't create combination sounds as is combi bank, and I have no idea about the tempo between the apreggiator and the sequencer mode.... Personally I think this workstation is cool
