Yep, no denying it a trusty workhorse - mines getting pretty knackered, one thing to watch out for is that the LCD display fades away till you can't see much on it. My scsi is also acting up as well but I've had it for years.

One of the best things about it is that it's so simple to operate - partly cause it doesn't do very much - that's a bonus in some ways. Acesses an enormous sample library - if you can get hold of the 4.04 OS you can read S900/950/1000/2000/3000 samples.

Comments About the Sounds:
the sounds are great but you cannot mess them up much
