I own the ZR-76 for almost four years. First what caught my attention when I was shopping for workstation at Mars Music was the feel of touch of the keyboard – almost identical to the real piano. Second – the sound of Perfect Piano. And the third – features, including the sequencer, drum machine, powerful effects. After searching around I could not find anything on the market at that time that would come close to the ZR-76 in comparison, including Korg Triton. After installing this beauty in my house I realized that I missed another advantage (most important for music creators) of ZR-76 when was comparing workstations in the store: ease of use. The ZR-76 is so easy to learn and use that I did not even need the manual to create my first composition at very first day! I can’t believe that the Ensoniq with its powerful ZR-76 is history now – shame on marketing department that have put this great company out of business. I recently acquired one of the most famous (for late 90’s) workstations – Roland XP80 (with three expansion boards) – a keyboard that you would see on stage of almost any concert. Great sounds, but I would use the XP80 only as add-on to the ZR-76, not as stand alone unit, because XP80 will never replace the ZR-76 as workstation: not easy to learn as ZR-76, sequencer is way too complicated, the endless cursor move (I would add a mouse to this thing for saving time on selecting settings), and there is no built-in drum machine as on ZR-76. I would give ZR-76 10 out of 10!

David must have got a lemmon or somebody poured beer all over his keyboard....probably the latter. And for the flavor of the sounds, Ensoniq is a certain flavor that many pros love. People who want to sound like every body else should get a Triton or Motif. The Ensoniq offers a unique sound that is not found with more mainstream boards. Ensoniq appeals to connoisseurs of sound so if it doesnt appeal to you, well, that's a good signal that its definately time to sell it. You wont have any problem selling it if you can just stop complaining long enough to close the deal. Many people are looking for the zr76.

Love my zr-76... it took a full year to appreciate the best of its features (especially the 16 track recorder). I'd kill for the world music module but I still think it is the synth ever sold for under $1,000.

I have the sounds of the ZR ROM for my EMU Vintage Pro and its quite nice. Im a big fan of ensoniq sounds for a long time. They are all very fine to my ear. The ROM is full of so much character that it makes me interested in the ZR itself. If i find one for a good price I will certainly snap it up without a second thought. Pure Sonic Pleasure!!
