I LOVE this synth. Don't consider it as a sampler, but as a real, fantastic

synth with (limited) additive and (wonderful) substractive synthesis. I find it

very easy to program, and I made analog string sounds which can easily remind of

CS-80 ones ... The reasons ? A very nice 12/24 dB filter, a pretty oscillator

sync, 2 usable built-in digital delays. The cons : no pitch envelope, no PWM.

But if you want a cheap, very interesting synth (and if you have enough physical

strength ...), consider buying this one.

Best synth sounds : strings, fat sync solo sounds, brass

A bit lousy : basses, thin solo sounds

Crappy : sampling part ...

There doesn't seem to be anything this machine can't do ! It's a limited sampler by todays standards but it's still great for sampling most short duration things

and then you can synthesize the sample and layer it with whatever you want. As a synth alone it's great ! Buy one if you can! By the way, without a manual this thing is very hard to use -( I've got a third party &quot;bible&quot; thats about 200 pages long ! I don't have the factory manual for it so I can't help you guys out who are looking for one. :-( ) I paid $500 for mine at a music store in Regina on the last tour.

I have been using my Dss1 for about 5 years now, I am looking to finally sell it regretably, it is in Good condition with no internal or mechanical problems whatsoever the machine works like a horse and it has some of the best sounds that I've heard for the money,(the #1 button is missing on the front panel,however you can steal program by either replacing it or use the tip of a pencil like I do) I will sell it to an interested person for 350.00 firm; plus shipping and handling.

I tend to agree with the other reviews. It can make some cool synth sounds,

it's not at all user-friendly. Brass:good Strings:ok Bass:fair piano:fair If anyone is interested, I'm considering selling mine. It's mint cond.

Includes several disks by New Age Software. Some good sounds.
