Got mine when it came out,I was one year old at the time so I must of gotton it as a baby present lol.I just love the sounds from this synthesizer so much that it certainly has a secure place in my studio.I connect a cable from the wave out slot on the keyboard to the mic slot on the P.C and record in Cubase SX. My favourite presets are #32, #59, #12 and a few more!

This is a real beauty! A lot of interesting sounds,eg the no 74 Laser Beam kicks *ss.Nice rythms too. There are some irritating matters,such as the clicking sound all the control buttons give, and the very low polyphony,but these small things are easily compensated by all the good things. Once you get used to the small claviature,it'll provide hours of fun and be a cheap,useful tool in your music making.

The SA-01 is certainly a great keyboard if you can pick it up for a few dollars at a Thrift Store. It is tiny, but packs a lot of really powerful, interesting sampled sounds. There are some very good electro/synthy sounds in there. I would swear some of the sounds also have a sort of echo/reverb effect on them, but they may have just been sampled with the effect on. The sounds are pretty noisy while they are playing (4-bit?), but that might be an attraction to some. I wonder if the big sister to this keyboard would have 8-bit sound. Otherwise the keyboard has a lo noise floor (no hum or hiss when the sounds aren't playing). The headphone-out jack is much appreciated, so that it can be played through an amp. Not circuit-bendable. I opened mine and there are no accessable components, just a small circuit board with a black plastic blob containing the CPU. I know RadioShack sold a version of these without the headphone-out jack. The rythms are also sampled drumsets. They are pretty interesting (although very keyboardish sounding). The SUPER ACCOMPANIMENTS are a lot of fun, but unfortunately you cannot seem to change them so they follow chord patters (i.e. single finger accompaniment). Overall a really fun and useful keyboard in a VERY TINY package. Great 1980s electro sounds and 80s look (mine's RED). Not to be compared with a pro-level instrument, but great for blippy, experimental stuff.
