I am so attached to this very versatile little machine. Awesome sequencer (16 tracks plus 8 pattern tracks), 500+ EDITABLE sounds, and a very versatile editing component as well. It's not the easiest thing to use initially, but it's worth spending the time reading the manual, and this is coming from someone who hates reading manuals. it really pays off to know the depth of this little thing. MIDI compatibe of course, you can plug in guitar/mic....i mean, no reviews on any site including yamaha describes fully what it can do. you have to play with it.

This little box has everything I need to make my neighbours cat frisky!! I was playing the hip-hop style and it started freaking! Seriously tho, I have never been more delighted than now with such a fine entourage of sounds and an accesable sequencer. I was thinking of dying my hair pink and getting the neighbours cat to come round for some food, yeah, who knows what will happen, I like it alot!

The is a nifty sequencer and scratch pad for writing. Kudos to Yamaha for designing it. However, I do have to agree with Axis II, the 1/8 output is a little disappointing. While it is a stereo output, 1/8 outputs are not the same as 1/4 inch. The connections aren't as solid (look at the connectors sometime and compare). That aside, I think this is a kickin writing tool and I give it a 5.

the 1/8 jack is also a stereo line out. 1/8 jacks have just the same quality as 1/4 jacks. An adapter is easy to find.

Uh, this doens't claim to be a sampler. . this is a sequencer. And a damn fine one at that. Haven't read the imanual yet, relaly don't need to. Everything made sense to me (f course I've used sequencers before, so that may be why).

My biggest complaint about ths unit is that the only audio output here is a 1/8" jack which makes it kidna uselss as a synth in and of itself, which is a shame becuase I dig some of the patches. It makes me wonder why Yamaha would put so much into that part of the unit (Reverb, chorus, etc etc etc) and then have it be kidna usless. . .

That aside, I take this everywhere with me becuase it's such a powerful writing tool. I seriously think this should be in every electronic musician's tool box.

Incidentally, I don't think this is worth of a total 5, howere I think it's better than a four, so to offset the toher fours, I'm giving it a five. Just an FYI
