Great sound quality and filters etc. The quality of construction is okay, but not good enough considering the price tag. Mine has the new operating system (3.0b), 2 gig drive, 64 mb RAM. It's basically an E4xt, but with the "Hollywood Gold" logo on it which I think looks like s---. They sent it to me for the same price and I got 10 CD's with it, so I'll live. I think the SIMM is bad though. The thing works great for the first 20 minutes then starts to freeze which forces me to restart and lose everything. Gonna call em' tomorrow, and keep my fingers crossed. See ya

Very clear sound-much more natural sounding than AKAIs (though many like the AKAI sound). The Zplane filters are excellent- particularly the High Pass with resonance and the phasers. The low pass are a bit weak thought (it aint a 303).

A very simple interface combined with a big display makes setting it up easy- Can accept 15 assignable controllers per MIDI channel giving it real live potential if combined with something like a peavy PC1600.

Effects are simple but work fine and save on external units-unfortunately thought the sampler and filters are multi-timbral the effects are not-but sounds can be processed and resampled with a bit of chorus/reverb added and the quality isnt degraded.

Probobaly the best sampler you can get, and with a good selection of sounds a pretty good digital synth
