  1. So if I’m reading correctly (I just did some digging on the Opsix SE), aside from increased polyphony and updated visuals, there’s really no difference between this and the original Opsix. Is that correct? I use the original Opsix a lot, but I don’t need the extra polyphony so I’m thinking this probably isn’t a worthwhile upgrade for me.

  2. opsix is the most attractive FM synth on the market imho

    More polyphony is always welcome! Makes the decision easier to get one.
    Great that Korg has the resources and is willing to do hardware updates!

  3. I really dislike Korg’s strategy of obscuring the fact that all of these recent synths are 95% repackaging of older, cheaper instruments.
