i bought one fully expanded(drum,synth and audio) for $1500 in early 98.its ver1.0 i think.some bugs reaally when i switched the patterns,glitches and delays appeared.hope the later os improved 'ocz i sold it already.the kick is fat and ditry but lacks some punch,the snare is good,hihats also good,and the va synth bass is my favorites,it can emulate 303 lines.but still have some bugs when i assign one more synth part(basically its got only one,but w/ the synth and audio exp. u can two synth parts),it changed its programs randomly.now the price goes down,still is a good buy.

for fast drum programming and creating kickin`stomping fat drumsounds this unit is excellent. Mostly I sample the sounds and put the loops and single sounds in the sampler for next programming. The sound i search i will get from this machine. Many knobs and big sound for a good price!

Hey,

I've had mine for about 4-5 days and i must say the 309 is a great piece of kit the hands on fell is unlike any other machine i've used.

The bass/lead is PHAT it uses AES analog emulation synthisis and it does a great job.... it's got vco,vcf,oscillators,groove ect great fot those trance techers leads.... And the cut off resonance Accent ect is right infront of you for unlimited tweaks and hours of fun....

BUT the drum kit is by far the best part of this machine it's a cheap 808/909 i love the percussion sounds tweak the tone and good for psy trance. The sequencer is ok much rather cubase but it reminds me of the old analog ones tb303 ect if you want to compair this machine DON"T YOU JUST CANNOT and if you want the used out tb303 sounds you can almost get them in my opinion the 309 is better so's the sh-101.

Last thought just buy one there unique and the drums are wicked...........

The Kik drums on the 309 are incredibly superb, thick and versatile. The Korg electribe doesn't even compare (12 bit toy). I especially like the overblast for its adding to the monster bass hits. When played in combination with a good polysynth (Juno 1,6,106,tb303,etc..)it compliments it well enough that you start to wonder how Love inc. got so popular. The Hi-hat are awesome and offer what's missing in the snare drums which offer dull thuds and tweaks. If your looking for low-bass analog lead synth then there isn't much choice except for a few good leads. I also found that looping low bass creates a cracking sound when it repeats but the kik is so $&$#%$ hard I can't even hear it.

I heard this as i was just going out of the door of a music shop. Stopped in my tracks to see what it was. Didnt have the dosh to buy it then so gotit later. I luv it. The bass is phaaat ( maybe that other geezer has a naff machine). Everything is nice except the snares ( corny old shite).I have a lot of quality gear but this is my most pleasu7rABle and creative tool.
