Easy to use for a 1980's era synth.

This is a primitive additive synth.

I disagree with the previous reviewer.
I love the strings and pads so much on this synth,
that I bought a second one. My first one I bought in 1989.
I am utterly dependent on the string pad sound. But there
are at least 8-10 great pads on this synth - classic pads.
If you want to the wonders of the K-1 string pad, go to: http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/66/po...
and play "The Fantomas Waltz" or "Shanghai to Seattle".
There are a lot of big time producers who still have
K-1's in their gear. (Check out KEYBOARD 7/01, Dallas Austin).
Or Rick Wakeman, Ian Babylon. The K-1 string sound is
getting the recognition it deserves. You cannot find it
anywhere else. Rating - 10 for the pads and what someone
called 'space invasion' patches.
The other voices mainly suck.
Reliability : 10
Are you kidding?
I have owned my first K-1 for 12 years!
It still lights up every time I turn it on.
I own synths more recent synths by Roland, Korg, Yamaha
and Kawai. All of them have given me more trouble than
the trusty old K-1. My first synth!
