During the time between blog entries, I acquired the Korg X5DR rackmount synthesizer since I didn't have the budget for the 01/RW. Overall, it was a worthwhile purchase in my book.
The X5DR is primarily a General MIDI module, though it does contain 200 non-GM programs and combinations (each) as well. Partially for this reason, it also has the benefit of both multi-timbral mode and up to 64 voice polyphony! The sounds themselves are fairly bread and butter for the most part, but I enjoy them all the same.
This particular post isn't just a review, however: I also managed to find a way to rewrite 01/W presets to load at all in the X5DR. Obviously, waveshaping is not an option in this module, and there are a few missing samples as well (which I tried my best at replacing with similar ones), but if you don't have the budget for an 01 series keyboard either, then you could consider trying out my converted patches on an X5DR, or its keyboard version, the X5D.
That's all I have to say for now about this module, except to say that if enough people express interest, I may make a followup video exploring the other bank of programs from the module as well as my 01W patch conversions.
