sirius is the bomb for sound manipulation. never seen anything like it as far as grooveboxes are concerned. but dont let that scare you. its in a world all its own. serious sound design. just remember its better suited with its presets than used as a workstation, its a groovebox at heart. but everything from the kicks to basses and leads can be adjusted out of control. limited effects but total control over parameters take your pick. quasimidi has some very unique instruments all with the same funky sound character. not a stand alone but a nessicity for anybody making electronic music.

for the $375 i paid for mine its a great value for the money. i was expecting a 309 with a keyboard attached, but this is a bit more than just that. i had a fully expanded 309 and hated it. everything about it i hated. the sirius sounds much better and is alot easier to use. very intuitive lay-out. the most impressive is using the "random-sound" button on the bass drum. always end up with a huge range of weird and heavy kicks.

it has a couple drawbacks tho, like the crappy feeling keys, and the lack of alot of the effects that were found on many of their other products such as the Technox and Raven (both of wich i also have)

the random button - greatest invention of the past decade.

I haven't got those drums anywhere from any other unit. Sirius sounds much better than Rave-O-Lution (I had drum/audio expanded). Effects sounds better and usually the delay is only I use but reverb is nice for some drums and percussions. I had Polymorph too, which has the best synth-engine of the Quasimidis but Sirius has killer drums, so I'll keep it. Synth sounds are "interesting" and I have used some. They sit well to the mix. Nothing really bad to say...really.

I've had this keyb for 2-3 years now. Here's what I think of it (one argument per finger:

Pros (right hand): + Really easy, logical and fast to use + Has its own sound + Everything works well + Well built, doesn't break easily. + Unpredictable filters

Cons (left hand): - Can't really emulate anything well - Only 3 synth channels and 4 dedicated drum channels (bd, snare, hihat, percussion) - Effects arent that good, barely usable - Has its own sound (a con if you're the type that gets easily tired of certain types of sounds) - Unpredictable filters (a con if you want nice smooth filtering)

Now you can weight your left and right hands to find out if you'd like one of these.

In my opinion it's not a great machine for making that uniform "mainstream" trance (the kind that 'needs' a 8080 supersaw) but it works well for creating any kind of original sounding music.

If I have to name something I'd change in this box... First: it's the effects, they could be better. Second: more synth channels (Buying another one of these or recording parts in should do the trick). Third: nothing
