Backed up by investments from Yamaha, Korg made this weird FM synth available in four different colors, using Yamaha 4 operator FM technology and sound chip taken from the Yamaha FB-01 and Korg DS-08 (which looks more like the DW8000, the 707 looks more like the M1). But whilst the DS-08 used dual oscillators, the 707 uses only one (and doesn't have the on-board effects the DS-08 has). It does have it's own sound, rather thin and dinky but still quite fun. Somehow I really don't like editing it, even tweaking the presets is no fun at all. But to be honest, I haven't spend much time trying to figure this synth out. Right now I'm not bored (nor ashamed) using the 707's presets, maybe when I do get bored I might get motivated to dive into this synth. But right now I couldn't care less.more
