There are no buttons on the keyboard (just a volume and on/off switch on the back). I was worried that changes voices would be a pain, and while it is slightly awkward, it really is not a big deal. I just wish there was a way to tell if reverb and chorus were on or off.
An excellent digital piano for the price!
If you are buying a digital piano to learn how to play with the aid of a real teacher, you need to be aware of a few things. First, you want to make sure that your piano has a 'piano feel' to it (weighted keys), and that the keys are standard size. When you go from your digital piano to your teachers (probably real) piano, you may have a problem if you are playing on non-standard keys; your brain will be training your fingers on where they should be, and on a keyboard with narrower keys, this will not translate well. Even though the Korg's keys are weighted, my teacher has a 55 year old baby grand and the keys are much heavier than on my Korg and that tends to throw me off a bit.
I went to a large music store in Grand Rapids, MI, and tried a couple of Yamahas and a couple of Casios and Rolands, but I kept coming back to the Korg. I love that it doesn't have a bunch of non-piano stuff that I don't care about. The top is not cluttered with panels and buttons for dozens of 'voices'; there is no rhythm section.Read more ›
The hammer action is not the best but it is passable enough. One thing though is do buy another pedal rather than using the one that comes with the keyboard. The pedal is one of those little box like things that sinks into the carpet as you try to set on it. I bought the M-Audio SP-2 pedal and I am happy.
