This was marketed as a home keyboard with a minimal sampler built in. you can sample about 2-3 seconds at a horrible mono quality. It has no midi The synthesizer part is not controllable in a way where you can make music.. it has 13 envelope style's but that's about it. No mod wheels or any other control devices. This keyboard is however great for techno, or rap where the samples are supposed to sound grainy If you can find one that works, scoop it up. (maybe at $20 in a pawn shop)
Sonic Stays I used to have one of these, they are crap but fun and one of those things that will probably be worth a fortune in 200 years...
