A world of possibilities
by from Cary, NCIMHO just as a midi controller this unit is worth its price. I personally do not like most of the factory patches but that can be remedied by controlling some other synthesizer or hooking it up to a c... read more [+]omputer that has virtual instruments software. Yes that would meam more gear to acquire. Nevertheless, the point is if you are not satisfied with the sounds you do not have necessarily settle. I have been playing live with it for a little while and my band mates have been impressed. While it takes time to master the sound possibilities seem limitless. Along with computer virtual instruments this has become a one stop all in one solution for all my needs. close [-]
