Next step up from the s900 model, with the added features: more ram (2.25megs) and scsi interface (optional) aswell as software features which the s900 can now sport with a OS upgrade. Pretty simple to use, and fairly cheap! Nice sound quality if you're into the 12bit crunchy type sound, 8outs plus the loop features make this machine great for drums, also major tool for the hiphop producers used in many studio's.
