A nifty feature that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere about the MT-40 is that you have more bass lines than you may know. Press the G bass key amd get the G Bass riff. Press G and one additonal key above G and get the riff in G Minor. Press G and two keys above G and the bass player really starts earning his keep! 3 keys extra does nothing, but hey, you just re-discovered your MT-40. And for your reference: D Minor is the saddest key.

I now have two MT41(the dark gray version of the white MT40)and they sound great.wierd are the sounds for fuzz synth and cosmic(I believe).I have them in the attic for storage.The units do have one problem though,NO full chord patterns!The single tone(square wave)bass line sucks.The MT45 that came after was better in that area as well as the sounds being more full and of better left and right handed range.all in all I renew my vote having two of these puppies to:3of5 bad bass line patterns,not enough left handed range on sounds.

Twenty years as a street singer in Boston and San Francisco, starting out with a beat-up accordion and then graduating to the 'hi-tech' MT-40!!! I put it through a phase shifter and into a battery powered Moose bass amp, then sang thru a delay unit plugged into the famous Mouse amp, and suddenly I became known as The Space Lady......I owe it all to that cosmic little toy keyboard with a sound that beats all the rest hands down!

I know the reviewer iz only jokin', but hey, I got one of these too, and its a pretty smooth little retro groover. The bass section is cool, really thick square wave bass is possible, enough to overdrive the speakers when its cranked. The earlt digital sounds of these casio's is quite "pure", meaning not harsh and thin, but then again, you got to love the "sound" of these early casio's to get into em', back before they started using horrible sampled acoustic sounds, you know, these are just pure digital waveforms, and thats sounds good 2 me.

The beat box built in iz fresh, and for all you analogue freakz, yeah the drum sounds are completley analogue.

And 4 all you people that love to hack into your instruments, open up ya MT-40. Off hand, i can remember there being 4 or 5 trimpots, which I have replaced with potetiometers mounted into the case. 3 of these (I think 3 anyway), alter the analogue drum sounds. One alters the rimshot decay (up to the point of self-osc), one affects the bass drum tuning....ahh...ummm, thats what i remeber off hand. There is another trimpot inside however which has some extremely drastic effects on some of the Synth sounds (depending on how they a re synthesized i suppose). It turning resembles running the sounds through a high gain distortion unit, like a rat i suppose), maybe it alters the "phase distortion", which is the type of synthesis used on the Cz series, the extremes you can achieve, similiar to the chaotic thick distorted sound of MBV'S Loveless. So, you can mock these machine if ya wish, but it can cause some serious destruction if your mad enough to hack intot he instrument, layering the bass section over this chaotic distortion can create quite a thick and powerful sound.

Just my experience with this machine :)
