I am gathering equipment and information to help me in my goal of writing and recording a great album. I just purchased a fruity loops producer edition and am having a good time using that, I am looking to buy a synthesiser and I saw a neat one at the music store for about 300. I also went to ebay and found some interesting ones there. I would like to know how to avoid buying the 500 to 1500 dollar synths. And also I would like to know how do I put this all together with the midi capabilities, and step editors in fruity, and what is a midi controller. I am a good singer with a great album in mind and some professional people interested and I am giving myself a time table of two years to get it together. could you let me know. also about recording into the synth and saving where it has a disk drive(can I do a whole song) I am also going to school for music so Im hoping to put all this together to make a great album. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you friend. Demond Wilson, NC

LISTEN FELLAS, THE U-20 WAS THE GREATEST FOR WHAT TECHNOLOGY IN MUSIC ALLOWED AT THAT TIME. WE'ER TALKING ABOUT 1988-89...REMEMBER THAT THE D-50 A YEAR IN A HALF PRIOR HAD JUST DEBUT AND THEN CAME THE KORG M1 IN 1988, SO I SAID THIS TO SAY...RS PCM.RESYNTHESIZED PULSE CODE MODULATION STILL WITH IT'S ACOUSTIC NON FILTERED PALLET OF SOUNDS WOULD GIVE SOME OF THESE SYNTHS A RUN FOR IT'S MONEY.THE KORG M1 WITH ALL IT'S FAME AND IT'S SEQUENCER NOTABLY COULD NOT EVEN STACK UP TO ROLAND'S U-20. THINK I'M TRIPPIN'?!! COMPARE PIANO PATCHES...THEN HOLLA' AT ME.

I purchased my Roland U20 in 1992, to record in my home studio. The piano samples are excellent, which is why I bought it. Shortly thereafter, I returned to acoustic piano and never used the U20. It's been sitting in the closet all these years. If someone is looking for this synth, contact me. It belongs in professional hands that will use it.

I've had my U20 for about 11 years. Operating System is fine, easy once you know how, wish I could say the same about my Casio VZ-10M! There's one not bad acoustic piano, several fairly nice electric ones. Compared to modern synths the strings are a bit lame. I don't think the pad sounds are too bad, but there's a serious lack of convincing organs. High up in the timbre numbers are a few hidden raw synth sounds that are quite interesting. Drum sets had been discussed elsewhere, but the drum card adds rock and electronic kits which is useful - the electronic at least! The switches now feel great after a bit of contact cleaner....
