"The SD-90 was exactly what I was looking for a couple years ago. I am still happy with it. I can't wait until Edirol makes anot"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
If it breaks down I would buy a new one ASAP. Like I said, they only reason I would buy something new is if Edirol makes a new model. It is almost everything I need. The only thing I would like to see is a phantom powered XLR jack
Sound
There are so many sounds there should be a little something for everyone. If you can only afford one module I would say get this one. Since you have so much polyphony you can easily combine different sounds to make all new sounds!
Features
It would be nice to have an XRL input with phantom power. Also, multiple audio inputs would be great.
Quality
This unit has traveled many miles with me. One of the buttons has fallen off but it still works so I keep using it. I love that fact that it is so portable. You can set up a studio anywhere you go.
Value
The price was a little high but I am getting my money's worth out of it.
Manufacturer Support
THE BEST! When I was not sure whether I wanted to order it I called up the company and asked for more info. One of their representatives spent a lot of time explaining things to me and I bought it immediately. The only thing I wish for these days is for them to make a newer model with even more features and sounds. I will buy it as soon as it becomes available.
The Wow Factor
It is the primary part of my little studio. I love having everyone in one little box! I bought it because of its portability.
