baught one for 150$, second hand, altough never used in box. i like it. it is small, cheap and multitimbral. lots of sound on a little space, and i have barely any room for more synths.. (now that's a luxury problem). weak filter, but hey, im happy anyways

This is a great synth for the money. I wouldn't use this as a stand alone, but with a good effects unit and a sequencer, you will make sounds that other synths much more expensive couldn't do at twice the cost. I would say this is more of a trancelead/fx synth than a bass engine like the 106 or Nord. The cost of a FX unit to enhance the sound could make it a problem for ppl on budgets, but since most ppl are recording and using the effect units on all there equiptment, it will do fine. There is an intuitive way to the synth paremeters that could be descibed as weird.

I've had my RedSound Darkstar for about a year now. I agree that the factory presets are just absolute dreck. However, reprogramming the instrument isn't that hard, not any worse than working with my Roland workstation. Even though it has thirteen knobs, I'd have preferred it had they also added a two or three line data display rather than just the three digit numeric display. Sometimes it is a bit difficult to grasp what function page you are on and a good display would make that easier to deal with. It isn't as easy to work with as say my Korg Electibes or Quasimidi Polymorph, but as an adjunct to my studio I feel it was a good deal for the money. I only paid $325; and I got it from the sponsors site, Musician's Friend.

This is one of the best bargains I have ever found.....and is it a blast to play or what?? Its full of unique and unusual sound making possibilites. I love it!! The joystik looked cheesy till I learned how to use it and whoah!...what a cool extra feature!! This Darkstar will keep me busy with new explorations. I got the Vocoda chip too!! Very cool concept and they are coming out with more conversion chips too, so I hear. This think is just AWESOME!! I LOVE IT and I cant believe I only paid $200 for it!!!
