Weird, got this thing in a garage sale and never heard of it. Looked like a decent midi controller at the very least. Got it home and bout hit it with a hammer cause of the REALLY crap presets. Got into programming with the data wheel and to my suprise, it flat out does a tb-303. Only Casio hybrid made, and I thinks it is rare cause you dont find these all that often. You'll find it cheap priced, and beleive me its worth it just for the 303's, and does more!! Looks almost exactly like an Alpha-juno and programs exactly like one.

bought one off of ebay for 75$most presets are cheezy,but after screwing with the dreaded data wheel,i got some half decent moogish,arpish,and some decent vocal sounds.this unit would kill if it had 2 oscillators.for what i paid,i think i got my money's worth.

This machine is a state-of-art to nowhere. Its simply doesn´t work.

The sounds are poor, the effects are poor, the keys has a big course and difficult solos.

Simply the bad! Bad as my english!

Don´t buy it. The VL-1 maybe its better. Or put more money and try a real machine like KORG N264, like I do.

Sturdy, springy keys. Simple MIDI with some quirks (see previous). One or two sounds useful or at least interesting, but almost every other synth can do them as well if not better.

Use it for entering data into Cubase. I give it 2/5 as it's dirt cheap, and hasn't let me down.

Summary: if someone offers you one for free, think about it before saying no.

perhaps you're missing the point?

it's a low end casio, a step up from the pure consumer market models, but not much so. It's a cheap synth and it doesn't pretend to be anything else.

is someone bitter because they were conned into buying what they thought was "almost as good as a Jupiter 8" or what?
