I love this synth but as they age they develop issue (just like people). The sounds are really great for industrial, goth, ambient type music. And you can also add on other expansion cards and have a huge library to choose sounds from. Its well known for its glowing orange display ( which has issues with age but is a simple fix). I will say that I've read in several places that the capacitors Roland chose to use in the particular synth arent the greatest. THEY WILL GO BAD. Youll get nice fuzzy notes and audio squeals. But the good news is you can have it recapped for about the price of a new old synth. ($400 usd the last time i checked). But it is a great sounding synth when its working. I Actually made an entire album using one.
