In case anyone cares.

I bought a used Micron on ebay this morning and expect to get it in a few days. I'm very excited. 600 presets is a lot of sounds.

I do original sounds too, but it's fun to play with new different sounds, and they are all tweakable.

So far I've mostly played the Microkorg with some help from a Casio CZ-101 and an occasional sound from my Yamaha PSR-520.

The CZ's keys are crap so I have to play it MIDI'd to a better keyboard.
The Yamaha is a beautiful instrument but the sounds aren't tweakable.
The Microkorg is a blast but it has a certain kind of sound and it can get stale for me when I play it too much.

The Micron has highly respected sound. I can't wait to hear it through my stereo. They say it's a bitch to program with its few controls but I'll just buy the PC editor. I usually use the editor on the MK now. It's so cool to have all those virtual knobs in front of you.
