i was introduced to the SK-1 thru a friend of mine. i still have this instrument, covered with stickers and used almost daily. the drums are cheeee-zeeee kewl, the hihats are kraftwerkian jewels of sound. there are many cool things lurking under the surface on the SK-1. i've grown to love the little additive synthesis engine on the box, and enjoy mucking about with its internal sequencer. it's fun to do things like run the SK-1 into an unused channel on a big guitar amp, sample a splurt of distorted guitar plugged into the main channel of the guitar and instantaneously produce a doubly distorted rhythm guitar part that is as accurate as a sampler can be. a friend recently showed me a little trick you can do: with vibrato enabled, smash down a tonal/chord cluster while simultaneously _enabling_ portamento. if you get the timing right, the entire group of notes will start from highest or lowest possible frequency and slooooooooowly glide to their destination pitches. this synth is truly priceless. every one in the world should own one.

Cheap yes, I got mine for $10 at a pawn shop. The sampler is low quality, it can sample up to 1.4 seconds. There are mic and line inputs for the sampler, with a auto record threshold. (Can't be silent static, ,ust be loud enough, so no vinyl static samples!) THe flute can be used for nice dreamy pads, trip hoppy, put it on porta with vibrato, and play the low registers. the piano is nice, for chord stabs, or single keys, portamento makes it trippy. The poly is: _4_ and audio does have an output. Has built in mic. And MINIMAL record functions

This was my first keyboard ever -- the only thing I played with on it was the sampler, and it's still the only thing I play with on it. I don't think the little bugger ever sounded anything near desirable.

On the lighter side, it's a great thing to have knocking around the house, and it's perfect for sampling a speak+spell. Oh yeah, if you want drums that sound like total crap, this one's for you.

I give it a 3/5 because its entertainment value renders it &quot;god-like&quot;
