I just picked this up a week ago and now not sure what to think. The potential for this sound module is great. So many parameters to play with, a great analog sound, and the joystick is the greatest idea yet (similar to a Kaoss Pad except with a stick).

The downfall is this: 1: The O/S sucks hardcore

- When changing patterns with the appregiator on it accelerates the appregiation on the new sound and after a few seconds slows down. - When changing patterns the change isn't always consistent. I've caught this thing jumping to random patterns and can sometimes be difficult to land the pattern you want. - It would be nice if the appregiator was capable of being set to each program independently like on many sound modules. No matter what the setting is for it it remains the same for all patterns when changing them.

I keep hoping that they will release a patch to update the O/S, but from the look of things this probably won't happen. The website hasn't been updated since Sept 2002 and rumours are Red Sound is gonna go under. Hopefully this won't be the case and they will thrive.

well, just depending on what everbody is preferring there is need to differentiate: the eleVAta is a very unique sounding machine! One may like the sound or not. If one wants the sound of a Nord, Virus or Q then get one. The eleVAta is different!

I bought the Elevata for 399.00 and it is truly great sounding. All this comparison to a nord or a virus is just dumb. This thing has real character. It is a bargain at what you can get it for.

This is a good synth. It may not be a Nord Lead II (I personally think it sounds better in a mix than a nord, and reacts in a more intresting way when played with a good controller, and is more flexable), but it's a third of the cost (if that), and very convienent to use with it's 3-rack size and tilting body. Like the Darkstar, it will find it's audience when it goes into deep discount, and the poorer and less trendy users get hold of it. (I mean, if you can afford an Andromeda, what the hell are you looking at this thing for?) This is probably a love/hate synth. I love it now. With an effects box (I use a VF-1) you can do godlike things in multimode, believe me.
