Not the best synth in the world but still a very good one. One of it's biggest selling points is the modulation. There are tons of diffeent way to express yourself musically or non-musically with this synth. The step sequencer makes this baby all the way amazing. The fact that you can give each OSC it's own sequence on an old synth lets you know it was ahead of it's time. The sound quality is above average but not the best. That depends solely on your creativity though.Combine it with Ableton live and you'll have truely unique productions.
