"This module not only comes with alot of nice preset sounds, but you can also add sounds by inserting an Expansion Board. I often use this to 'test out' different sounds and see what kind of sounds would best match the song. But one point that I don't like about this module is that there are often some tiny little bit noises included at the end of each sound."more

Like every 90's rompler, it needs a lot of resampling to stay a current sounding synth. Good for basic pop rock sounds. Still pretty usable even for todays R&B (with heavy filtered ambient sounds). Effects are dated. Not a must have, but you can keep it and use a lot.

...amazing sound module! I use this for 'normal' instrumentation, such as strings, pianos and percussion. It does have some great synth sounds, but there's not a lot you can do with them as programming is rather limited. It does sound absolutely fantastic, and you get access to a lot of sounds, especially with the expansion cards. I have 3 cards and have over a thousand presets to play with.
