I have to give it a 5. It's surprisingly versatile for its lack of features and anyhow I love the simplicity of it and its McDonalds membrane. Bass, leads, 80's video game tones...It always sounds great.

I've had my Casio MG-510 for about 7 years, bought it second hand. Have had several other electric guitars previously, but this is the most versatile one I've ever played on. From crispy Fender sound to more jazz-influenced sounds. Really nice to play on also, better than most other guitars I've tried. I use is mostly as an ordinary electric guitar but sometimes together with a Roland (old) synth-module. Nice to be able to play for example piano or accordion on the guitar. But you have play very precise when using it as midi-guitar.

That's the thing, in many ways it covers sounds similar to a Mini-not quite as fat but still fatter than most.

I've never found any problem with parameter changes using the one data entry wheel, very quick; in fact if many of the digital synths had this it would make it much easier; i remember that Roland smartly used the same technique on some of their synths in the 80s, which really helped.

I owned an Oberheim OBSX. Sound wise the Source is grail like. I miss the knobs, man. Miss the knobs. Without interfacing technology to slave and sequence it's beautiful sounds, and without the knobs to make playing it alive, I'd say it's a neat sounding mono poly piano. It's got all the sound and looks of a player, it's just not the same as tweeking a knob here and there while holding a note and controlling the sound. The membrane, aside from it lacking longevity, makes me feel like a cashier at McDonalds. I'm still giving it a 5 because it's fat as hell and if your going to centralize to one knob, why not make it an optical perfectly weighted one. The single knob is even fun to play with when the powers off. I'd trade straight up for a mini but since this is a mini at half the price, and it looks cooler than a mini, it's a 5.
