This is not my first synth by a long shot (that was the Juno-106 in 84), and included some heavy hitters such as the Kurzweil K2500 and the Korg Triton. This is my first *monosynth* since playing with Berklee's Arp Oddesey's back in the 70s, and it's the first synth I've owned that's really fun to play! Despite (or perhaps because of?) limited parameters and no saving presets, I twiddle knobs, plug patch cords, build sequences, and more. I dusted off my old Roland GR-09 and I'm having a blast with setting up the arpeggiator with that combo. I run it all through a stereo DDL, then use verbs and other plugins in Logic, and having an onboard spring reverb is just the icing on the cake. Having it semi-modular, geared to Eurorack standards, is now making me look at expanding things in that direction...the cherry on top of the icing.If you think it sounds like I'm taken with this keyboard, you'd be right. Great price, great value, great sounds, great fun. If you're at all inclined towards this sort of tool, get it.
