Fact: everyone needs great workhorse vintage keyboard sounds/effects but most cant afford the real thing. Couple that with the headaches (and backaches!) that many associate with ownership of these old boards and its no wonder that demand for keyboards providing quality electro-mechanical keyboard sounds are at the top of many keyboardists purchase lists. The SV-1 is Korgs fi rst foray into this territory. Though samples of Rhodes, Wurlitzers EP200s, Hammond B3s and Hohner Clavinets can be found in Korgs workstation keyboards, the SV-1 packages theses sounds (newly sampled and optimised for the SV-1) in a completely new way.
