I'll keep this long story short. I've spent a total of about 8 hours with it so far and I mind myself spending all my time easily creating patches that have the richness, depth, texture, feel, and animation within the tones that exceeds my other analogs like the moogs and Dave Smith's, as great as they are. For $500, it's a no brainer, if there's just one analog synth you can get, you'll be very happy with this one for a long time. It has many novel features, but I only will give it a three star since it's not multi-timbral and my Tetra is. That should have been relatively cheap and easy to add, why they didn't???
