Mine too. I love what this machine can do. simple but effective mangling samples for beat sequencing...
One case for two different products: larger target market + $$ reduction on the assembling line´s costs.
Side effects: the case must be compatible for both products. There are some extra holes for the lights and knobs.
Between the Amp-roll-reverse buttons, there´s a big hole. Is where the oscillator´s big knob of the EMX-1 is located.
Also there´s a extra hole next to the filter, for the filter boost knob of the EMX-1.
Now, with two metal covers, is harder to get rid of that extra heat coming from the bulbs. I wonder if the heat affects the components near to them after years of use, like the pitch knob. Many user reports problem with it, mine goes to -48 each time I move it. But I´m also noticing, it makes contact with the hole borders.... don´t know if this is the reason for its shitty behavior.
My slider is also giving me problems, anyway, I didn´t use it so much, so I don´t miss it. But man, I´m "devastated" he he with this problems.
I would say: well, let´s get one of those new units with the SD card.... but they did not fixed anything after all those years! Just added the SD feature.
Well, they save some bucks on it, but it seems customer´s loyalty is a value not so appreciated by Korg. Is a profit that proves to be valuable for organizations only after a long time.
Get some feedback Korg, please... I´m somebody who doesn´t like to smash products throught the web, but, let´s go to the facts... this sucks
