I bought mine a few months ago and just got the 1.06 upgrade. I love it, it does a great deal if you are willing to dive into programming it. I like the multitimblral stacking ability. I've programmed some really nice leads and fat poly patches and even a decent acoustic guitar sound. I've used it live and even managed to get it on a soundtrack I did shortly after I bought it. Redsound has excellent customer support too and on top of that, this box looks cool, too! Its red and black look go with my red AX-1 which I use to control it. It's a treat to use it with my old real analog synth, a Korg Polysix.

I got my DarkStar last Friday and I'm extremely happy with it.

I recommend this synth especially if you like me just owned a sample-playback synth (like my CS1x, which I still love by the way)... The sounds you can make with the DarkStar is simply amazing, especially if you compare prices of some competitors.

Now that I have played with it non-stop for 3 days, I think I can conclude that it was the synth I was looking for.

As I get more experience, I will post a real review.

It is a synth you really need to put some time in, that is one thing I know for sure at the moment... and that's a very good thing IMHO.

My first conclusion is simply that it's EXCELLENT for my purposes, so I will give it a 5 out of 5.

true,it's no dream machine, but it does almost anything you want from an analouge emulator. i've had mine for months now. and i have noticed it's unique qualities, in particular its sizzling sort of 303ish sounds are like nothing else. this puppy realllly stands out from the rest of the em-boxes. and at $500? you can't go wrong...red sound are on your team youngsters.....make music.

Granted ... it's no Access Virus or Novation nova.. but it holds it's own against the JP 8080 and Nordlead... I think in terms of sounds it beats the An1x easily... and at the same price... I thinks it's neck to neck with the nord lead and competes well with the JP 8080... the thing is you have to dig into to it to program it well.you can get some fat bass... great pads..lush stringas.. great all around.. the demos at the web site are terrible.. don't listen to them.. and the presets are shit as well.. for 500 get one.. worth at least 2 times the price....
