People who complain about the Darkstar being a bitch to create sounds and the unit being Hissy, I think they need to LEARN how to create Sounds and program a synth in the first place. I've been programming and creating sounds on Synths since the early 70s and I am Amazed with what can be done with the Darkstar. All the Noise patches that are heard on a Moog, not only have I created them, but also saved them in the synth memory banks, all within 40 minutes. For the price and the ease of programming, NO ONE should have any complains about the Darksound. Can't wait to try out the Vocoda chip. WELL DONE "REDSOUND" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Darkstar is fun to play with and the Vocoda chip will get you some extra miles for sure. Hope Red Sound will follow thru on the other upgrades for this beauty. I think when they use a "promise" of upgrade chips to sell synths if they dont come thru, then they lose face and $ in the market because they lose their credibility and nobody believes any future promises. Trust is a valuable thing. We hope Red Sound doesnt blow it. We trust you to follow thru on your promise and thank you in advance RedSound for your integrity on this matter. Keep up the great work!!

After owning the DarkStar since it's initial release (purchased for $400 USD), I thought it was time for me to write a review. I wish I could be kinder but I feel the DS was a waste of my money. The sound quality on the synth is horrible. It has so much hiss, I have to keep its mixer channel muted when it's not in use. If you want to really tear your hair out, try running it through an expensive effect processor (I’m using TC Electronic’s M-One) only to have the hiss amplified.

Maybe I'm overly sensitive, but I can not stand the hiss. I've owned two DarkStars (I thought the hiss on the first one might have been a fluke) and both of them sound the same.

I’m also disappointed that we have yet to see the Mono Synth upgrade. The possibility of this upgrade is the only thing that’s keeping me from tossing it in the trash.

The DarkStar is quite a bargain. It's ultra-simple to program and it has a sound quality all its own. No, it can't really compare to the MS2000R (which I also own), but it wasn't deisgned to do that, either. For $200 (new), it's a great deal!
