The synthesiser is great for anyone needing a controller for their EX or SR, fantastic for some drones and smooth sounds. Amazing tweakability also.If I did not own several keys I would not have gotten this.I wanted decent FM sounds and good usable samples and some nice vocal and string effects too. Frankenstein I say, what a monster!
The bass sounds are kind of weak on my EV pa , even with the 18 inch sub. I never use it unless I slot more bass (say from mother 32's or something analog.) The subtle changes and massive changes can be missing in a poor mix. Use delicate touches and compare results I guess. That IS the ticket!
Terrible packaging, dang this is built to last at least 5 years or less....Lots of wonderful knobs, lots of menus that work. Work flow rocks! Lots of patches you can use and write over. Build is poor but sounds useful IF you need it.
Ease of Use
This takes some time to learn to use but is not impossible.I like the upper and mid range tones a lot. I wish it had more keys too or was a module. I needed the joystick too.
I give the build quality a 7 out of 10. My roland jx 305 lasted about 5 years before it went belly up, made a lot like this one is.
I would have paid 2k for a better box with this sound. Add the missing parts from the old wavestation (multiple sections at once) and I would pay 3.5k Add sampling and I would pay 4 thousand at once !
Never used it. Like Korg though.
The Wow Factor
Looks good, finger print magnet, hard plastic with pyramids, wow.Some of the drone stuff is straight out of my personal dreams. Cleans super easy! Worth having if you have other gear!
