Once you learn the programming procedure,amazing sounds can be created using the onboard banks of samples and the links that can be added.I bought my Emu Vintage Keys with the plus board already installed and paid$500.00 for it in 1998. I got it mainly for the Melotron sounds but have grown to love the many other sounds as well.For a controller I use a evolution MK-149 49 key board.I run it through a Alesis Nano verb into Yamaha 4 track porta studio then to a stereo amp and speaker system for monitoring.I am very pleased with the results.

I paid 250.00 for mine and I'm kinda glad I didnt pay anymore. The Rhoads are worthless along with the sped up leslie on the B's. The only worth I am going to get from mine is from the ARP's, moogs and OBI's they are all pretty nice. Also the fx choices are very limited and programming really responsive sounds can be very frustrating as the presets are mostly trash. Dont get me wrong though, I like Emu products infact I have the B-3 module, its great. What do I know?

As others have said, great sounds out of the box. To me, sounds aren't hard to change, but editing does seem tricky (then again, I've been spoiled on an M1). It groups sounds by category, (organs, pianos, leads, resonant, bass, etc.) which makes sense. Moog sounds aren't as fat as I expected, tho I think it matters what speakers you're playing thru. Basses are very nice and give nice variety from aggressive to laid-back R&B. I love the Wurlitzers the best. Organ sounds are good. Aftertouch brings in Leslie sound as good as I'll ever need. The organs beat anything else I've heard.

Just bought this synth in Santa Cruz, CA at music store for $299. Mint condition with manual, in original box shipped 1992. Always wanted this particular model to improve my selection of keyboard patches. It is a classic, indeed!
