Does anyone have experience with Kohler DPs? I know they have a Korg engine and are manufactured by Samick, and have Fatar actions. I would be curious to hear from someone who has one or has played one.

Hmm, this certainly isn't my dream combination of attributes.

• OPOS (Objective Portable Operating System)—multi-tasking operating system, to let you load data while playing your instrument
• Updatable operating system, to add new features from disk
• Solid State Disk (SSD), for any system update—a smart way to replace the usual ROM


They use SSD! That means really big amount of samples. Great news.

Oops, I was wrong, spec says that SSD used for OS only.

2. Turn off the instrument, and insert the operating system disk into the disk drive.
3. Turn on the instrument. A message appears on the display, asking if you want to load the operating system.
4. Press ENTER to load, or EXIT to cancel the loading process. If you press ENTER, wait until the loading is completed. When the operating system loading is complete, a message appears, asking you to remove the floppy disk and press any button.
5. Remove the floppy disk, and press any button.

It took me a while to get through reading these instructions, I had to keep going back and checking to see what century we're currently living in.
