Sound Quality
I give this an 9 for sound rating, only for one reason. The filter, if used improperly, can be VERY harsh. Honestly, though, with the proper control of it I was quickly surprized at how GREAT it sounds, although I completely understand peoples perspective as to this matter. ALTHOUGH. I had this thing running in a tb303 style sequence and with it's resonance set at about 20% and with tweaking the ADSRD I can get damn good 303 style bass out of it. With unison running, thing sounds aggressive as a chainsaw. I own several keyboards, incl. a polysix, and honestly I am kind of leaning toward this thing sound wise, and not just for the flexibility (which is obviously in every facet more capable) but even with tone.
Reliability/Durability
Well mine is fairly new to me, but granted that it's about 20 years old now I take it's got a good lifespan in it.
Price/Value
General Comments
Massively underated. I hate purists who find comfort in their 303/juno/prodigy/poly sounds. Get one, be careful with that resonance, and you should find that these things are quite the gem.
