I've had my p2k for 3yrs now and I'm going to break the convention here, I absolutely love it. The reason why is that i find that this machine is the best all-rounder I've ever used. I would agree in part that it may not be on first listening the most inspiring synth i've ever heard but I think EMU delibrately gave it some limitations to make us all go out and buy the other members of the family.I also have the Mo Phatt turbo and the Orbit 3 these guys have a job for life in my synth rack.I am bit lazy and can't be asked to spend loads of time programming, so I like the loads of presets idea. The thing I love most of all about the P2K family is the programming architechture I found the operating system instantly easy to use straight out of the box without having to study the manual. I think some of the reviews have been overly harsh, there have been times when I wonder if some of the other reviewers are talking about the same machine. here in the UK the P2K always gets a high secondhand value on ebay you never see them go for less than £270 so,maybe it's just a cultural thing as most of the reviewers here are from the US. I would say its not really a choice between it and say one of the XV's or Motifs for me they do a different kind of job. For me Korgs and Rolands always have good pads and strings but the proteus wins hand down for bases and drums. If you only have enough dosh for one module I'd say the P2k gives you loads of bang for the bucks and even as a second module it still deserves a space in most peoples rack.

This machine is a waste of time. When I first purchased it, I thought I had hit the holy grail of sounds. I was only inspired for about 3-4 songs, the sounds are very repetitive and even when you edit them, they still sound the same. The reverb is horrible and the sounds NEVER seem to change, you have a million sounds all competiting to sound the same. Go with Roland or Yamaha, I am getting rid of this and getting a Motif. I do suggest this for techno, new age, or some of that line, any other music will suffer dearly.

I just bought this nice piece of equipment and i'm very happy with it no matter what the critics are.It has everything i need and to make good music has to do with your own creativity instead of purchasing exspensive music equipment.Like i said i'm happy with it and recommend everybody to go bey this one.

Absolutely the Proteus 2000 module is a winner. More features than you will ever need and the abilitiy to swap sound boards is just awesome. Mine has the Holy Grail piano rom, the Ensoniq Project rom (which has all the sounds of the AsrX urban dance project and the real world expansion boards) and the World Expedition rom as well as the original composer rom it came with. This fully loaded Proteus 2000 is just awesome. I have never seen a rack module so packed with potential in such a small package. I love mine. The sounds are way better than the typical Roland sounds that you hear in every commercial. Great full bodied lows and nice crispy highs. This baby stays in my rack. Very well built too. Emu does it right!
