Well,

This keyboard rocks, Ive had my two for about 18months, and they complement my arsenal beautifully. Yes..i have 2 of them...its a long story, suffice to say, if quasimidi fucked up all their orders in this way, then thats the reason for them going out of business....thats right..they sent me 2....but its good, double the poly, 2 vocoders, 4 (mediocre) FX processors...ITS ALL GOOD...for all those ppl bagging this synth....stick ur casio's up ur arse, coz ur obviously not talking about the right synth...I have no complaints. I dont see what all the fuss was about the sequencer being fiddly, It took me about 3 days before I figured it out.... and if Bass is what your after...look no further (if u can actually find many for sale) I now use :- novation supernova2, roland vp9000, akai 3000xl, 2 x quuasimidi sirius, 1 x polymorph (quasimidi), roland jp8080, roland Juno106, Korg electribe EA1, ER1, and ES1, and Propellerheads Reason v1.0. and i have to say, the sirius' are a main part of my music :))

Peace.

Of course no matter what anyone says about this kybd you just have to play it yourself (if you can find one!). It's true that the vocoder isn't the best but what would you expect for an 11 band vocoder? It does have a good step sequencer but you can't chain the sequences together. If you're looking for a good synth to add to your set up I would recomend the Sirius. It has some really cool specteral wave samples in it. It also has some really good meelotron chior samples too! :-) It does have a sound of it's own... which is good huh! As far as sound designing it has some rather limited features like only one LFO and if you want to stack sounds you have to use the sequencer to trigger both sounds from two seperate midi channels. If you are using another sequencer I recommend you get an AMT 8 because the Sirius eats up 6 midi channels if you're using all the sounds on lit at once. So IMO if anyone says this kybd sucks then they that's their opinion. The Sirius is very capable of really fat and very unique sounds. It's worth getting IMO.... again it all depends on your preferences!

aside from only having 2 outs (yawn), this fucking thing rinses it stupid! first off,if youre saving all your money to buy a stand alone "all-in-one-studio-in-a-box" instrument, you either want to waste money or you have no intention of "doing it right". hobby-ists should pay more attention to specs before dropping all their hard earned prostitution loot on on "dance-workstations" ... find out what youre really supposed to do with these things. with any amt. of creativity you can pull rediculous sounds out the sirius... you get a lot of sound manipulation options on this thingand plenty of space to put them. it has a sound all its own... not to mention that sound creation doesnt end at your synth..... -i shouldnt have to specify on this.... this is a great addition to an established arsenal! adds lots of character easy to get to know- good manual for newbies to the quasimidi family.

by the way if any one is unsatisfied with theirs post a reply and asking price.... hehe

I gotta say here this synth is so phat it'll break your neck.. People who say it has limited sound capabilities are on crack.. this thing has an option that you can take your single sounds and internally merge them the vocoder option is NUTZ The beats are insane (it's like having two seperate drum machines inside it) and the three synth lines on patterns and such is AMAZING.. I've wrecked my speakers playing bass on this thing.. people who think this is thin or a toy are crazy, I've never heard a jp8000 or an ms2000 burn this in thickness it's amazingly fun just to program and play with and an actually intuitive arppeggiator is a nice addition. This thing rocks out.. if you can find one under 1000 laugh all the way to the bank and snag this thing.. It burns up man I've used this and the Virus (rack mount) and I gotta say, those are all you need synth wise.. screw the jp8000 roland has let us all down.. go for german manufacturing .. (come one their cars rule too!)

The Sirius is a great drum box, the factory drums are quite good but you can really edit some insane sounds. The synthesizers are a bit thin due to the single oscillator, but with a some fine tuning and some vision you can get what you want (esp. if it's primitive 80s sounds). The sequencer is weak and I've had problems with it. Hook it up to Logic or Cubase and you're set. The vocoder can be ignored (toss that gooseneck number). All in all, it can make some nice electro/techno/bass sounds but it just won't do everything.
