Great sounds, okay keys
This thing has a large number of ready to go patches that honestly sound great. It has very little in the way of editing patches on the synth itself, other than the ASDR + 1 FX and Reverb, but it does apparently have an editing program for PC/mac, which I have not used. The keys are okay they have this strange feeling which leaves something to be desired but it works great as a midi controller and has velocity (I use it with renoise and it makes applying velocity much easier).
So where do I begin? I bought this 3 years ago (I think) to begin my music hobby. I didn't knew anything about it. So I went to a store and looked at some keyboards. This one sounded good in the store, and was reasonably priced, so I bought it. A lot of the accoustic sounds are quite thin I discovered, and the build quality isn't the best either. The pots are a bit loose and don't have a 'click' to notify when its on 0. The keybed is semi-weighted and decent. It has little to no sound modification without the software (which i didn't touch in those few years, I might need to try it...). It has some cheap arpeggio and cheap drum loops. It's an OK keyboard... but if I could turn back the time, I would have bought a different one.
Great for beginners
This was the first non-software synth I purchased when I was beginning to produce. It is a great piece of machinery for someone with limited knowledge of synthesis, as it offers you the ability to tweak the asdr and reverb of the synth sounds without overcomplicating the tweaking and being confusing to beginners. For someone looking to really dial in their own sounds, this may not be the best option, but it still has some great onboard presets. Also, the D-Beam is delightful.
