Sound Quality
sounds unique, i dont buy synths to make them sound like flutes or pianos. i want them to sound like a synth and the ax80 has its own flavour. the cross mod is excellent. and the envelopes are great. it has the capability of destroying your speakers with its filter. no noise generator so thats a little dissapointing . keybord is a typical plastic key 80s synth keyboard.outputs are very clean on mine .
seems very solid allthough it has done wierd things every now and again but it seems realy solid and reliable.
General Comments
well my ax80 is mint realy mint. i paid 150.00 for it. it may not be the best analog keyboard ever or the most versatile but for what i paid it is amazing. it can make some awesome electronic noises. the only thing i hate is the lack of support for this box. i would replace it if i lost it. would pay up to 400.00 for one. the guy in the guitar shop said it was not very good as it was from the era that synths became digital you can tell this from the display he said. i played dumb and said well its only 150.00 so i will take it of your hands. one of my all time bargains
