You can get all Mx1000 programs on the internet, and you can load them via Midi.
Also you can do split/layer with 6R!!!!
Only thing that it has 127 RAM program places less than Mx1000.(only drawback).
Anyway, I'll go with 6R...

Gee the M1000 is only one rack space.
That said, if you can spare the rack space keep the 6R.
Bi-timbral/separate outs/front panel editing is definitely better.
I have a M1000 because I can't spare the extra rack spaces.
Only 2 banks of the M1000 are editable, the rest are ROM, though I
just use sysex to tweak the ROM sounds as I go.
