This is a great on-the-go hand held unit, impressive sounds for such a small device. With 306 instruments, 16 drum kits, 28 polyphony, 8 track sequencer, and an on-board mixer with 7 reverbs, and 8 choruses, it is safe to say this is the best protable unit available. if you use it as a module, every parameter on each instrument (lfos,vibrato,cutoff,resonance,...) including the effects are changable through system exclusive. Plus there is no need for a midi interface for your computer, because it has a serial output for IBM & MACs!

Comments About the Sounds:
The string loops are real dirty, but most of the synth strings are decent.
