This synth really packs a punch!

Summary: Some criticized the Korg R3 for the vocoder, but I didn't buy it just for the vocoder, any more than I bought the MicroKorg for the same reason. What I bought the R3 for is how much punch this synth has for such a small synth.
Summary: This is a professional keyboard, so if you want some great sounds at an affordable price, this could be perfect for you. Very transportable; incredible sounds; knobs that allow for adjusting sounds; multi-effects processor; vocoder. I could go on and on.
Summary: The Korg R3 is great if you have a creative mind and patience. If your looking for a plug and play synth with unique presets, then not so much. Thing is you are able to create your own sounds, which I have done and had huge success with. The previous reviews knock the vocoder.
Summary: I'm a big fan of Korg products. The Kaoss Pad 3, the ESX-1 and the EMX-1 are some of the best things I have ever purchased. This purchase, however, was a mistake. I decided to buy it after being blown away by an in-store demonstration of the microkorg xl.
Not a perfect vocoder or board, but still very worthy

Summary: This is a strong board, if not a perfect vocoder or a perfect board. It tries to be good at both, and it is, but it's not the best at both. The weakness lies in the vocoder. If you're looking for what's on the radio now, you'll struggle to recreate it.
