Overall: While really not knowing anything really about synthesizers except for the Fusion classics of the 70's and Techno jams from my youth. I did some extensive research on the subject and came along the Arp. This Synth is awesome(like knock pictures off the wall awesome). Beware though it does have a learning curve. There are no presets,everything must be done by the user. After looking through the manual at patches I've made really cool sounds. There is also online patches you can look up. I have had it for a month and I'm just getting the sounds I was looking for. In closing I would recommend this synth to anyone. It is affordable for it's power and the fun seems to be limitless. If you're wanting straight out of the box sounds I would not recommend but if you want uniqueness and power, pick it up.

Overall: This was probably the 3rd or 4th time ordering from zzounds. My beloved synth arrived in a timely fashion- (warehouse is not far from my house). Enjoyed the free shipping and especially the awesome payment plans. I don't know of anywhere else who would do a 12 month zero interest plan on a new synth on the market. The arp synth arrived in its factory box that was damaged pretty bad. But luckily this synth comes in a hard shell case. All is good. And they offered a return if there were any issues. Overall great experience and now I have my favorite synth in my arsenal. Thing sounds amazing. All about duo phonic! This thing sounds like a beast. Perfect for any genre of EDM. Put a delay on it and patch the output into the input with the supplied patch cables and you are in heaven. Very sturdy and well built instrument. This thing screams on filter 1 with the overdrive switch on. Don't hesitate to buy! Make sure to price match! This synth is not a beginners synth. Has a bit of a learning curve if you are not a synthesist. But read the manual and you'll be there in no time.
