It's a really good expander for its price: nice at look, easy at using ...

But comparing with &quot;his evil brother&quot; Roland SC 88 Pro, some sounds are more sympathic and most realistic than Korg NS5R ( sax, strings, drums ...) but few of each category . You find very good effects at ears but I regret for the sadly inexistence of some effects I feel important: 3D effects.

So, i finish by the feeling i have about Korg NS5R: &quot;If i have to take one thing to heaven, i will surely take My NS5R&quot;

I write guitar-based music and needed an external module to run from a PC

sequencer (Cakewalk) for synth/piano backing. In use it has fulfilled this

role well but only after I mapped all the patches into Cakewalk. Even then,

the different sounds are very hard to find: they should be grouped or Korg

should supply a reference table by group - I waste so much time looking

for available string or organ patches for example. This is important because

despite all the great sounding patches on offer the GM soundset is frankly

very poor - the acoustic guitars and woodwinds for example are plain awful. As with so much gear these days the user's manual is confusing and not for the

newcomer - are there no good technical authors any more? Too much prior knowledge is

assumed. I don't want to sound too negative because it's a great all-rounder when you start

digging and there are plenty of sounds there. The bass guitar sounds are good

enough that I often sequence rather than play a real bass on recordings! Once I've installed a Yamaha DB50XG on the daughterboard connector (once I'm

positive it'll be OK to do that - ant comments please?)it should be

unbeatable for the serious semi-pro wanting to produce high quality demos.

Well, I have a SB AWE 64 Gold, Roland SCC-1, and, you guessed it, an NS5R. I really like the Roland's drum samples, brass instruments, and the GS standard, but everything else should be handed to the NS5R. It's got everything in the way of samples! It really makes me wonder about the Roland SC-88 Pro. I sure hope that I don't kick myself in the head later and say, &quot;I should have bought the SC-88 Pro!&quot; The SB AWE 64 Gold......??? Well, let's just leave it at that, hahah!!!

I like the module. Been having it for about a year now.

One thing i hate though: ITS NOISY !! . on an unaccepable level for making CD's!.

I start missing top on the sounds - the sounds are not brigth enough!. But still you can have a LOT of fun with this module. Big bang for the buck!. BTW: Where's all those wonderfull midi-files all those happy users must have made! - lets share them!

Oh my GOD!!! I never played something at this level!

Intuitive, fast, easy-to-use, simply the best. The programs are really

the best in the world, and probably the combis are the best in the universe!
