i'm giving it 5/5 cuz it's good at it's own thing, it's not ment to be a overall GM system or something, and it's gr8 as a solo lead, Piano KICKZ! the reverb is heavy, mixing sounds goes gr8, majorly since it's kewl since when u layer 2 instz, inst no.2 runs on inst 1.'s reverb and envelope settings which really rules! the best is to layer instruments over the monophonic heavy leads (31,32,63,64) since u get pholyphony and heavy fxz. try layering a piano over 32.... anyways the cutoff filter is just so nice there! and it's cheap. get this one for lead/piano roles.

The keyboard is very plastic, the touch is very light but if you mix some of the sounds....

WOW. Try mixing the pacth B bays Piano with the Syn (No 16) and then try reversing it so the syn has the paino underneath. WOW, great puching electric piano with pads.

Now try patch B using syn bass with the the same syn pad under or over, try that at the bass end....CRRIIKKKEYY! Big!

Its limited by the fact you can only edit a sound and save it once, if you edit it again you have to over-write the earlier edit! Bummer. And as for that keyboard shape, what on earth possessed them to make it like that? They may of though it cool but it won't fit into any keyboard flight case that I've got and as stated in the review it won't prop up against a wall without falling over and smashing keys! As I've found out by experience.

Otherwise a great starter synth going for about £150 on S/H market.
