I love my K5000s. Wouldn't do without it. It is definitely a 'programmer's' synth - if you're into CREATING sounds it's the greatest. If you're looking to play presets, it's probably not for you. They're getting to be hard to come by after the Sam Ash blowout. Used price is typically more than the blowout price (About $600 now, but it's definitely worth that). Hope this helps.
