    They are ridiculously versatile. The presets for the most part are very good (apart from the trance ones which are just awful). But with very little tweaking you can get very individual sounds out of them. The build quality is great and they look pretty lovely as well.

    I use a Korg MS2000B which I find is pretty much the exact same only you can actually play stuff on it as opposed to the kiddie keys on a microkorg.

    What do most local bands use em for though? I use a synth to add another sound to a melody line seeing as we dont have guitars, it's a replacement, kinda.

    I use mine for the vocoder function as well as the synth itself. Some of the presets are really nice but you can get some originality out of it -albeit a limited amount. I actually find the CSX Yamaha synths more rewarding.

    Will this be the noise you make when you rupture your spinal column carrying the thing around? Or perhaps the appreciative gasp at all the patch cables?

    :shock:

    The key size thing seems to be an issue for loads of people but I actually prefer it for synth lines (obviously not so good for piano style playing). I use a microkontrol as well which is essentially the same size.

    Oh come on, I'll bet the Moog at least starts more than 1 in 4 times when you go to start it up. :lol:

    Oh ok I'll give you that - maybe I should have said its as reliable as you sending an email :-D .

    And to be fair I have used it, I used it at the Mandella Hall at the Big Buzz thing where it was more out of tune than me and more recently I have been using it in guide tracks for new material. In its defence, it maybe just has a personality.
