I just bought one for a little over $1000. Old school sounds with moden reliability.

A truely excellent synth.. I find myself happily tweeking one of the 72 knobs and having a wonderful time!! The sound is so silky smooth at times or chunky organic- this synth reminds me of the best moog sounds, the best roland sounds, and the best Sequntial sounds.. Nothing can be more satisfying than those sounds rolled in one weird monophic synth. It sounds ear delicious. I use it often and the build quality is 100% tough! Get one.

4-voice polyphonic/monophonic with floating voice assignment not unlike that of the old Korg mono/poly. Fully analog built with discrete compononents ! Very flexible midi implementation, but almost exclusively on midi-note info. Can be used as 1,2,3 or 4 synths with stacking of VCO's and cascading of filters. Inserts and external audio inputs give this synth a semi-modular character. Can be fitted with CV/Gate input for each voice when ordered. This makes integration in any analog setup very easy. I use mine in conjunction with a Doepfer A-100 modular system. Works great ! only a few cons: -no PCM on VCO's -combined footage/waveform switch jumps from 32 to 8 setting; 16 needs to be set with manual finetuning -lettering of VCF EG depth is from 0-10 while it should be from -5 - +5 All in all a highly recommended machine. When looking for analog sound and flexibility, choose this instead of all that over-priced, hyped vintage gear with stability problems, lacking spare parts. Rack mounting (5 HE) makes it also a spacesaver over keyboard based antiques.
Sounds warm and lively. single VCO/VCF voicings are thick enough for lush polyphonic pads. independent stero panning and LFO's for each voice contribute greatly to spacious sounds Stacking can make monster monophonic sounds when mixing 4 VCO's
has not let me down in the two months that I own it now, built like a rock
People at HDB audio are very friendly when discussing and ordering options. Instant replies on queries and rapid shipping
Well worth the money Please consider this before jumping into the over-priced, over-hyped "analog" market for vintage machines. Here is an alternative for a very attractive price: -"Old" sound with modern & flexible midi options built in -great price/performance ratio -looks and feels great (I use color-coded custom knobs to improve recognition of all functions) -Easy to have serviced or customized, if ever needed
