Question about humidity and synthesizers?

Question about humidity and synthesizers?

Hey guys, sorry if this isn't the right place to ask my question, it's my first post here.

So earlier today I was cleaning a bit to finally make room for a synth jam space. Before that, I had my synth (Korg Minilogue XD) in its original cardboard box, waiting in the corner of my room near my window for the past few months. When came the time to finally take it out, I noticed the metal part of the synth was really cold and left light finger marks on it for a few seconds. When I say light, I mean they would only mark the synths for a few seconds. No doubt this is condensation, as my fingers would feel a bit damp afterwards. My question is, should I be worried about turning it on soon? My room isn't especially cold nor humid, but it's getting cold here in Canada (just got to sub-zero this week). My worry is that by leaving it close to the wall that leads to the outside for a few months, I may have messed up by exposing it to a not ideal temperature for a long time. Again, for the few months it was ''stored'', it stayed in its original cardboard box.

Anyway, what do you guys think? Should I be worried about this surface condensation? Could it mean it got in the circuits as well? Let me know what you guys think.
