I bought an EX-800 (which is the rack-mounted version of the Poly 800)for about 15$.

You can do a lot of Juno60-like-sounds with it (especially strings and basses).

I use it for percussional sounds in adition with a guitar-preamp (distortion and exciter).

This combination sounds great !!! Besides there are no knobs for realtime control the DEG 3 is

an good alternative to do funny things with the filter section.

There are a lot of problems with the midi-interface but the little sequencer does a great job.

Not the best synth around by a long shot, but can do a few good sounds. The interface is just plain awful, and it makes setting up

patches a bit tiresome, but you start getting used to it. The onboard sequencer is handy tho...

I own currently own one and I wouldn't let go of it. First of all the overall

sound capabilities of this synth are immense, secondly, the intergrated &quot;kinda&quot;

sequencer is fun and easy to use to make arpegiator-like techno phrases and finally,

the synth looks great, is small and is lightweight. CONS: The oscillators have a tendency to detune themselves, a firm shake of

the synth usually does it for me!!! Good buy for a collectioner (I bought mine in a pawn shop for 100$ canadian)

This one started it all for me. Great beginner synth in 1985. Interface leaves a LOT to be desired but nice effects can be created with the MG 6-part envelope. Cute &amp; portable, my teenage cousin has this one now teaching him the basics like I learned...

This keyboard has fatt bass, I use its bass to test my sound system's bass capability, it makes the walls shake. I also made a modification where instead of pressing the buttons to adjust laets say the resonance, now all you have to do is turn a knob, one is for UP and another for DOWN. If you want to find out about the mod e-mail me, I'll have a web page on how to do it.
