hello there
i own a wk8 and i don't mind sharing ideas with other users and i frequently check this forum and in deed it seems very slow maybe because GEM users don't have as many problems as others .
by the way i play oriental music and use quarter notes,i love my Wk8 ,couple of things i hate about it ,the keys and the sounds,if WK8 had better keys and korg or roland type of sounds it would be a killer mashine.
