I will never sell this! it sounds like living breathing Sound waves. All the kiddies can use reason and ill Kick all their asses with more control,and a real big wall of evolving sound! Real filters and Occilators make a difference. I have a virus Indigo TDM Plug and I after I purchased my PEK I couldnt go back to my softsynths.

I once owned a prophet-5, and all I have to say is this thing is an instant classic. Such power, even more conventional sounds like the first patch 'Big Sawz' makes me scream for joy...if you have the bucks, and want something new, and yet something different all together...get it...I can't imagine why anybody would be dissapointed. This can do pretty, wierd , crazy , nasty...whatever you like. Just a little mention here, the ocillators are super stable, so if you want the instability of a classic, then get a P-5(or whatever suits your fancy), but if want you reliability, and unprecidented sonic possibilites(the tuned feedback section alone makes this thing jump out at you) Get the PK4...sure its pricey...but it stomps almost any v-a to the ground( The only va I think that would come close would have to be a virus, but still it doesnt come that close). Once again an instant classic!!! forget a 5 I give it a 10... this thing will kick your ass!!! P/s. I could go into detail about this thing, but why- everything about this board is killer...the ocillators, filters (Low Pass, and High Pass)the envelopes,tuned feedback, delays, Distortion,the 4 LFO's, the modulators etc...they all rock!!!

Just got a PEK, so quick first impressions:
The sound is absolutely excellent, it just stomps. I own two mono evolvers so I thought I knew what I was getting, but for some reason, the polyevolver sounds even better; I don't know why. It's alive and organic in a way most other modern synths aren't; if you're just a bit disappointed how your VA sounds, this might cure you. I bought this instead of an Andromeda, and although the A6 is excellent (and can do some things the evolver probably can't, and has a lot more polyphony), but to my ears the PEK just sounds better.
The PEK build is top-notch, the semi-weighted keyboard (same as A6) is great and very playable, the controls feel good, the design very classy (real hardwood ends).
Probably the only real downside for most people is the limited 4-voice polyphony. You can hook up more evolvers to increase the polyphony; I have have two, but haven't tested that function yet.
[A small but annoying thing is that the PEK follows the recent trend and uses some blue LEDs as indicators -- and they're _way_ too bright; I don't need my eyes seared from their sockets every time I look at the front panel, thankyouverymuch... It also uses illuminated mod/pitch wheels which I find quite distracting, and there's no way to turn off the illumination.]
