MT32 has great drum parts but lacks in some instrument especially piano, but it has been around for 10years now so. If you are handy you can create your own patches using sysex, many game makers have done this(SIERRA) and maked it sound fantastic. The reverb is very good and some cases even better than new synth modules.
I bought an MT-32 new and still have it. It adds some hiss to the basic noise level of a mix, but it's arco string and pizzicato string patches still are great. It has a great reverb capability that I have not improved on with equipment 10 years newer and costing twice as much.
I keep it IN CASE, rather than as a primary. It's variance from GM format is a nuisance that dates it more than it's patches and sound quality. Brass are fair to poor (as most brass from synths are).
Comments About the Sounds:
Enough sound to supply basic needs, drums, bass etc. Pretty thin though. No editing possible at all. The piano sounds are crap. No portamento.
