I forgot to add: Don't even compare this thing to a JUNO. They're completly differnt animals. The JUNO's are DCO synths, BAH! The Polysix is true VCO, Hurrah! :)

I really like this analog synth. It has a very unique sound, really dark and scary. It also is capable of making a really clean electric piano sound. The Polysix is very easy to learn and program. Okay, Okay, so Vangelis uses sounds like this. So what!? At this point in history Vangelis is cool and should be respected by all synth lovers. It's not the best synth for techno purposes because the only way to sync it is by sending a click through it's arpeggio trigger. This method is fun and produces cool possibilities, but is a little limited for automation. There is a professional in the SF Bay area who will add a MIDI in for $60.00. He also quoted me an extra $20.00 to replace that nasty battery with a LI+ coin battery. Pretty good deal! It is a really fun synth to play. This is a poly-synth (as the name might suggest) so it's good for real musicians who want to play chords and leads. The only problem i've noticed in poly mode is that if you play six single notes, the seventh key pressed is silent. It's like it starts over again counting to six? I don't know if it's just a problem with mine or they all do that? Anyways it doesn't always happen when you hit chords. True, it's not the bassiest synth, but you can't have ONLY bass in your music, AND it's still capable of breaking your monitors. The sounds easily come out sounding full and interesting. It's not a really expensive synth either. Mine seems sturdy. All the knobs work well with no looseness or scratchyness. I give a 4 out of 5 because of the battery problem that every owner needs to fix.

I got one to replace my juno that died. this thing is a beast. it's way more flexible than a juno it has a much more harsh sound plus I got it for half the price. definately total analog. I got the battery replaced that was easy luckily it didn't eat my board. The only down side, and it's minimal once you know how to handle it, is that you have to tune her every so often. once you get this down it only takes about 10 minutes. I've had a few roland analogs and a digital analog and this thing blows them all away. If your thinking about getting one do it.

I had one. It died due to the battery problem. I wish that I still had it. A very dark synth. I loved it way more than my stupid Juno 60. This is a very underrated synth. Nowhere near as flexible as other synths of the time such as the Jupiter 6 that I had, but I still love the way that it sounded.

I got it today after 8 years in a bad technician trying to add mono CV GATE to it.

This is amazing!!! After having had all the Roland Dated Polyphonics, Junos, Jupiters,MKS 80s ...This beast blows all them. His sound is savage,notlike the mellow and soft Rolands,the filter is super AMERICAN,moogy style(SSM),the envelopes,amazing too even better with negative settings.

The Ensemble chorus of t is WOW!!! I have been looking for years for the Polyphonic ensemble 2000,but I can do that with this.

Has memories too,NICE.

It looks great too,and matches my Minimoog!!!

This the early 80´s films sound I was looking for years

I will buy another one for spaers as they are cheap and very underrated( lack of midi I guess)

I prefer it by far to the MONO/POLY,only the MONO´s arpeggiator is better than this . To me after the Linntronics MemoryMoog,the BEST poly EVER!!! It bashes Expanders,Junos,Jupiters,etc.

Time to sell my Super Jupiter now
