Personally, I prefer the WK1800 to the WK3000.
While the wk3000 has way more sounds and functions, I never needed all that. I also don't like the button instead of a modwheel on the wk3000. and to go up to the wk3500 for the mod wheel is going up about 100 dollars.
I prefer the feel of the wk1800's keybed to the wk3000.
The only downside I found with the wk1800 I found was that you can't save to standard midi file.
Also the wk300 has the wk1800 beat when it comes to the drawbar organ sounds. But personally, I wasn't using it to gig with and so the organ sounds from the wk1800 were always more than adequect.
I only used the wk1800 in the house. If I wanted to just play for 5 mins, I woild play the wk1800. If I was sitting down to write or to rehearse, I'd turn on the pro gear. But even when writing, It was nice to use the little seq. in the wk1800. Also I used the wk1800 to drag out to the park on a nice day once in a while.
Anyway... It's just an thought.
