Hi everyone, just after a little bit of advice please.
I've owned an Oasys in the past when it first came out, sold it a while ago but I still use one in a local studio (borrow it quite a lot whilst they don't miss it lol).

What I would like to know is I have the opportunity to buy one again in very good condition, but if anything happens to it sometime in the future, from reading this thread, are you basically then stuck with something that doesn't work and Korg will not want to know you, or should something happen, can you get these machines repaired?

Price wise they are pretty good these days, but it would be nice to know there is still support for any failures, rather than spending good money and keeping my fingers crossed nothing goes wrong.

I know there is also the Kronos, but having worked with one too, I prefer the larger screen that the Oasys has to work with.

The first thing that will probably go is the hard drive, which can be replaced. It's very important to have all the discs with recovery and OS, so you can get that new drive going. I'm surprised at how many people buy these units, second hand, but don't have the discs!

Supposedly, Korg is supposed to have a stock of things like the motherboard and several owners bought back up motherboards. I know a repair guy and he says that the buttons are kind of hard to get a hold of. I've brought unresponsive buttons back to life with WD-40 and my 2005 unit operates like the day I got it.

I also just bought the Kronos X, this winter, but my son smashed the display and my repair guy quoted me "two months" just to get a display, as they are back-ordered! (This is a currently produced product.) Thank heavens my 8 year old OASYS is running smoothly. I have to say how grateful I am that it's built like a tank.

Regarding the screen, it's no contest. I have to hunch over the Kronos and the display items are much smaller. I do love the Kronos, mainly because of sample streaming, but the OASYS is a dream to operate.
