Its only ok. I would not wast any money on this unit. Better to get the new platform models in the p2000 line. This does not really compare to those imho.

I got the Audity with the Xtreme card. The one and only expansion. I wish there were more. but the new generation proteus mudules are just that. This unit is not for the Desktop musician who wants to make GM songs. This is a great machine with awesome sounds and a great arpegiator. I like the fact that you can use multiple patches with different arpegiators set to the presets and have them all sync accurately. That's great!. I like the flexibility of the Arp that can transmit the midi data to be used as building blocks for MIDI loops. in my sequencer to be used with my other modules. Easy to use and learn. DEFINITELY NEED TO READ THE MANUAL. The new Proteus modules are based on this unit but unfortunately the expansion roms are not interchangeable. You can get the same soundset out of the XL-1Turbo module. Musicians friend has it on sale for $299(Might be sold out by now) and ZZOUNDS and AMS for $399. Get one while you can at these prices considering when they were just released went for $1500. I like it and I am glad I got it. Peace

yes, sound like Fishy needs va or better yet an ra to do what he wants to do. The Audity 2000 is not really designed for that. It has its own place tho and still stands out as special in its own way. If you need some unusual sounds that are not found easily in other machines, the Audity 2000 can be a godsend!! I love mine! Make sure you get OS 2.0 (or 2.1) tho or you will be missing some cool features. and if you can get one with the Xtreme ROM expansion, then you got the orbit and phatt flavors built in as well, and it will make a HUGE difference in what you have to work with sound-wise. I have the Xtreme expansion in mine and its way better than one without. I have played the Audity 2000 without the Xtreme ROM and that is about half as fun. You gotta have the Xtreme ROM for this unit. Crucial!!

gotta learn the machine dude. you havent even scratched the surface. This machine, the Audity 2000 is unique and unusual and you can make it sing if you give it a chance. however, it takes some time to figure out the EMU interface. Once you do, the possiblities are endless!! :0

i kind of bought this module on the strength of all the positive reviews here but i have to say Im dissapointed. Perhaps its my own fault that i wanted to make early Tangerine Dream/JMJ type filter, LFO sweeps and all this machine does is Techno odditys and good fart noises. the filters are brilliant but i have had much more satisfaction out of the MS2000. I make a lot of different music and i also thought i could get some Eat Static type noises, maybe you can but for the effort and time it takes, i could be having a life. Summary, excellent for techno noises and ARPs but not much else.
