Great but feels cheap
First off, I love the sound,size and versatility of this synth. It covers so much territory and it is very easy to use, but it feels really cheap! Mine does not sit flat on my desk so I have the manual permanently underneath one side so it doesn't bounce around when I play it. Having it mounted on a keyboard stand would easily solve this problem, but I like it next to me when I'm working. Also, the switches and knobs feel like they could snap off if they are not babied. The octave switch on mine will occasional stick in the down position and I have to physically move is back to center instead of it just snapping back like it's supposed to. The plastic casing is also very thin. I wouldn't gig this thing, but it does help me out a lot in the studio. If it had the build quality of the original micro I would give it 5 stars.
