it's good. Only drawback for me is the limited storage of presets.

I've got the Korg Legacy Controller yesterday and I'm waiting for the software package Legacy Cell Analogue.

The idea itself is really nice, especially that miniature MS-20. Its simulation (emulation?) is certainly a mixed bag but when it comes to filterless digital instruments like the Wavestation (or the M1, if you want to call it an instrument), it

it reminds me a little of 1978
I bought a ms10, my first synth.
did know anything about keys or synths (I played guitar) and when I did "something" with the filter I got sounds like klaus schulze!!!

This was also my first real synthesizer (beside the Casio VL1 I had first). Laughing

The digital resonant filter in the virtual wavestation is OK but not awesome.

The main advantages over the hardware version of the wavestation are:
extra polyphony - you can make up one of those multilayered shifting/evolving sounds, and still be able to play proper chords on it
Easier to create sounds, though not by much, strangely enough.
You get all the PCM card sounds
No whining noise from the LCD (this is a big advantage, really!)

Disadvantages:
Slightly easier to edit, but somewhat RSI-inducing
You lose the great master-keyboard facilityies (if you're replacing the WS keyboard w/it)

I got the Legacy digital edition, I don't play with the software M1 much, you start off on that "universe" sound and it just makes you sound like a early '90's new age musician.

The hidden gem of the package is that little effect processor, that sounds great and is very easy to use.

I don't fancy the analogue legacy pack, maybe if you could get the mono/poly vsti on its own, I'd buy that.

The interface is a nice idea but the build quality is very cheap n' tacky in toy like way and is useless for anything else, the analogue sounds are ok but put it next to an Arturia and they sound very weak in comparison, I also don't see the point of emulating obsolete ROMplers when there's so much more advanced softsynths out there.

Well, erm, the original Korgs *did* sound weak in comparison with the originals Arturia set out to emulate Smile .

I have problems with the Korg Legacy and controller. When I load the software and want to use the software, the computer tells me he can't find the controller.

What's the problem?

Pretty good package I think. I was amazed how close the MS-20 came to the real thing - but close just isn't good enough when talking about the MS-20 Smile Still, it's capable of great sounds of course, and possible to do things that you can't do with an original MS-20.

A very good collection with lots of recognizable sounds. I use it quite rare, because I prefer less "familiar" sound, but it's nice to have it, like "back in time" when Poly 800 was my first KORG synth Smile
