One of those synths which just isn't worth buying. You will have to buy an effects unit to make anything of it. The D50 goes for nothing, has effects and does sooo much more. This is a thin sounding dollar shop synth fron the 1980's. You can buy other, later stuff for peanuts. Its alot like the DX27. When the DX7 can be picked up for a hundred bucks, whats the point. It can do alot of the D range stuff. It is a simple DX10 without the effects. Its reasonably light to carry about and thats its best feature. I would recommend any other digital synth above it. The strings sound good through a decent effects unit. It is not simple to program and has alot of limitations.

This Synth is suprisingly good for 1989, I've mainly done Darkwave and Sister Machine Gun kind of ndustrial with it, and it works. First, the complaints. The keys on these things seem to break very easily, but if you dont move it alot that shouldnt be a problem, and, the buttons have a tendency to fall in. Granted, this thing is almost 15 years old, so it shouldnt be huge, but its a small thing i dotn like, also, their is no built in sequencer. Now the good parts, this has great bass sounds, and if you hook up a external sequencer and a few effect pedals, this thing is great. Its ok for beginners, but the programming can be time consuming. In short, its old, but still kicks butt. Rock on.
