Out of all the synths I own, this is probibably the best one. The keys are smoothy silk like a feathers el goucho es samilla del torre.

I've had one of these for about 7 years. Although the keys are full size, its not a full size keyboard.

Its purely for use of playing since its useless as a synth. It has no effects so to speak and even worse, no midi.

It sounds half decent but once again use it as a piano, not as a synth.

3 out of 5. Alright, but not good or great.

Got one of these things when I was seven; it's pretty craptacular, but after a good 11 years, I've finally realized that it's actually useful for some things - you just have to get really creative with it.

It's noisy, plasticky, thin, and cheesy. I decorated mine with a cut-up "Clinton on a Milk Carton" bumper sticker and now refer to it as "The Ultimate Death Machine". I play it as half of the two-piece comedy band "!Weird Bob!", along with some of my other cheapo gear. ^^

Some of my Ultimate Death Machine tricks:

-I sampled myself playing major/minor/2nd/4th triads with some of the brass patches, and combined them in Fast Tracker 2 to make some thicker seventh chords, looped 'em, and what do you know, they make a pretty smooth and surprisingly lush pad background for my sorry attempt at a jungle/DnB tune. -Some of the reeds and synthier sounds make half-decent leads. -Stay away from the drums ^^ -Play around with some outlandish effects on the thing. I put this through my Zoom 506 bass effects, set to a phaser and distortion or something like that, and with only my little 15-watt bass amp I was able to shake the walls around. A possible live application? Eh, maybe =P

In conclusion, it's an interesting little keyboard if you're into cheesy tracked music, comedy music, or anything unorthodox and wacky like that. I give it a "2" because it's pretty much unusable for anything else. Maybe pick it up if you see it at a flea market for ten bucks, but make sure you know what you're getting into first ^^;

Yes, I am a beginner, and I'm not very much into synths / keyboards.

Anyhow, I happen to own CA110, and I wonder, why it doesn't get any good comments? I think this keyboard rules. Well, alright, it sucks in professional and part-time use, but it is ideal for hobby-ist or a dude who wants to have some fun.

The beat bank has some extremely cool 80s beats. I think this thing could be used when making some retro-stylish game music, a.k.a NES-music.

I give 4 out of 5. I know, I am stupid, but haha, I just like CA110. Anything cheap or free goes, and I got this for 22 dollars.
