My set up in the XL-1 comprises of MP-7,Composer and Sounds of ZR roms this combination covers a lot of styles...I am happy with this but I will probably get another EMU unit with Vintage and Planet Earth...sadly we have to say goodbye to the hardware from EMU but that is progress

This is the best Emu box of those I have (MoPhatt, Pk2 with Techno ROM). Though no rompler is good for techno-trance oriented music and this one is no exception, it's synth sounds may be good for some experimental pop or electronica. But it's not suitable for dance stuff, I guess, these sounds just don't have the edge and class of a real VA. If you ever heard the real analog or VA these sounds would never fool you. But as a rompler synth box I find it very good. I just like the sounds. Never think about it as of VA and you won't be dissapointed. The collection of sounds is very good. Personally I like rompler's synths, they are usually more warm and soft. And the drums are allright. Not spectacular but allright. All in all good box for the money.

Depending on the music you are trying to make, this orange box will become a sad and boring preset machine or a music box full of ideas. Do you play the piano? Forget it! Do you sequence and need lots of great sounds played at certain octaves? Do some quick programming and this little and cheap box is so powerful! No analogue synth, no workstation, the presets suck (aka chart dance music), the interface sucks (but still better than most), but if you can play the sound you want over two-three octaves (as all sample playback sounds) this module has loads to offer! Reviews are useless, listening to demos are useless, you need to put a few sounds together and try it for yourself, only then will you know! Most 'synths - keyboards' are fantastic, what we want these days is something close to presets for our own tastes, because most of our time is at work (sad but true!).
