First of all, I'll do my best to review this instrument seriously, but the reality is that I can't play keyboards anywhere near well enough to make this a logical, much less necessary purchase. Serious players should take everything I say with a grain of salt.My first thoughts upon unboxing the (Red) RK-100S2 was that it is beautiful, and feels good around my neck and in my hands. It really is a good size to hold on your lap and just play with while watching TV or whatever which is my primary purpose for purchasing. Just to improve my improv.I knew I wanted a Keytar, so it was between this and the Roland Ax-Edge 2. And, honestly, once I started digging around in the RK100's features, I was bummed that I didn't get the Roland. The Roland has a USB port so that you can have tracks to play along with the instrument. I guess that I just assumed that the Korg would have that feature too, because I went looking for who to yell at, zZounds or the Korg rep, but I can't find anywhere that either company deceived me in the marketing material.I did consider returning this but the size and other features on the Korg make it a better fit for my small apartment than the Roland would have been. Still undecided on it, and waiting for the amp to show up, I started messing around with the sounds, and of the 200 voices in the 100S2, I really like 35 of them. There are about another 50 that I think could be wild if I can learn to play this thing correctly. But still, it "felt" less than the Roland read more and for nearly identical prices.Then, I plugged it into my computer (via the instrument jack), and connected the Korg to Guitar Rig 6 and started to play with the pedals and amp sims. THAT was when this instrument came alive! While it wasn't the instrument I was expecting, it is the instrument that I NEEDED!This thing is stupid proof! And I'm the evidence. For real, if you don't press either of the modifier buttons on the neck, then simply tapping, rubbing, or holding anywhere on the long touch strip will allow you to play scales. And the scales change from patch to patch. And you can go in and set the Key, the Modality, and the type of scale to be played if you connect to the PC app.The PC app itself sucks, but it is there. It's one of those apps where it opens a window that contains other windows inside it, but those secondary windows can't be re-sized so, even though I have a 32" 1440p monitor on that PC, the app takes up like 20% of the screen and I need a microscope to read anything. I will never understand that design choice.I know that there is an awful lot of this instrument being wasted on me. Somebody that knows what they are doing could have one hell of a time with this thing. I have been making myself laugh for the last couple of days at just how easy it is to get a really good sound out of this thing. This thing almost has me ready to go on a stage, and I have NEVER been able to improvise anything before.I can play like 70 songs on bass, and maybe 5 on piano all covers. I like to say I'm just good enough to know how much I suck! But this thing has me feeling a confidence that I haven't ever felt in 12 years of lessons. I'm sure it's a false sense of confidence, but give me six months with this thing, and it won't be quite so false.The RK-100S2 can be used as a midi controller too. I suggest that you don't. I tried it out, and it triggers the midi just fine, but the touch strips don't function in anything approaching the same way as they do in instrument mode, so it's like having the coolest looking, least functional midi controller available. There are too many cheap midi controllers out there to waste the RK-100S2's talent there.Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, I contacted Korg, and the "SLIM KEYS" are 3/4" wide, and a standard key is 7/8" wide. That 1/8" makes a big difference for my chubby little fingers, but if you have more of a pianist's hand, they shouldn't be an issue.
