Just got My audity 2000. Only £147.

a few disapointing reviews here but I think its great. After doing some research yes you relise the xtreme lead is a newer version but if you dont get the turbo you are lossing out on your 4 extra out puts your s/pdif. you can only put 1 expansion in the non turbo models unless you expand it to a turbo.

Best way to look at it is as the proteus 2000 is the same as the turbos the proteus 1000 is the non turbos and this comes somewhere in between (the version 2.01), not exactly true but kind of...

only prob with the whole range is the crazzy level of programing but how else you expect to do it from 1u of rack space...

Amazing programming potential - tons and tons of modulation possibilities. Absolute pain to program however - unless you enjoy scrolling through endless menus, and annoying 6 stage Rate/Level envs (no Sustain paramater, but 2 Release stages!) It IS a modular wanna-be, which just doesn't fly on a tiny LCD display. EM-U packed this baby with a gazillion parameters because they could, not because they're useful. Be warned - you can even edit a layer (up to 4 per patch) that you have muted, meaning you can tweak away on something you're not even listening to (unlike the Wavestation). Oversight.

Lots of filters and FX which are all kinda digital 'n' sterile. Lacks sonic punch! The presets are just awful, and do not do this synth justice. I spent 2 years reprogramming mine, only to have the synth reset itself for no reason! (Back up your work!) IMHO you'd be better off with a nice MKS70, although you lose the MIDI syncing options of the Audity. A re-invented wheel that may or may not move your music forward. Now the Novation A Station, on the other hand.......

I've just bought a second hand Audity2000 which sounds quite nice (though I came from yamaha AN1x which was amazingly buttery, cream, punch ..etc). The reason why I give a 5 to this module is 'cause I has extreme modulation posibilities which is great for someone like me since I enjoy programing sometimes much more than playing, besides I paid 240€ for it; It's a 5 combination to my eyes.

Besides this it still has the OS1.0, I've been trying to get it from E-MU, but no results whatsoever.

Could anyone of you e-mail the OS 2.01 to me?

Thanks

What's wroung with you people?! Just the specs alone should give it at least a 1 out of 5. 64 note ploy (with latest OS), 16 part multitrimbral, 16 appreiators syncable, 5 assignable controller knobs, 6 outs, digital out. Ok you can't upgrade the ROM - big deal - here's an idea try programming instead of paying a stack for factory sounds & samples (it's not as hard as people make out). The virtual patch bay so you can modulate anything form anything else is v. cool.

For the prices you see on ebay this is great synth, sounds this thing makes are truly distinctive great filters, ok it's not a virtual analogue - but you wouldn't buy this if that's what your looking.
