a True Surprise

I just got this last night and already hip deep in this thing!! I will admit however I bought this not knowing exactly what i would get, but I always been a huge fan of the fairlight, and wanted one like everyone else had for years, so in this case it was a calculated risk for me.Not to sound like a Donkey kisser, but sometimes i just trust my rep to tell me the right thing.Mark Maxwell has never steered me wrong and he encouraged me to try this so i took the gamble and WON!!! the drac organ is a (un)dead ringer for the movie organ and theres alot of old, familiar sounds that are true to form, and it too easy to navgate thru the patches. for the price, i think i got a bargain. i dont know what honestly i'd do with alot of these sounds because they may seem a bit dated, but when I think of the old school days in the 70's this was a future waiting to be fortold (if you catch my meaning) in the nostalgia department, so I say, GO for the gold on this one. THE BEAST is more than likely my next target. All in all. I give 4 snaps up(ok,ok, that was old too!)
