not a bad synth, but i wouldent take it that seriously. Im not gonna diss it coz its a relation to the JX-305 (which i also own). The 305 is it's big brother if you like, and thats where i create catchy trance. The EG-101 has many features which sometimes come in handy, but as a stand alone machine, it cant do it.

not bad but for the money you can get a mc303 that has an 8-track pattern and song sequencer integrated with the exact same soundset. i only bought mine because i got it for $100 and i have external sequencers and controllers. pretty much outdated equiptment now, there is too much other great stuff on the market these days to get this as anything but part a vintage synth collection.

I just got the EG-101 off ebay for $200 dollars. What a deal! This thing is incredible. It is so fun and easy to play. This is what music is all about. Don't get caught up in the hype that you must spend thousands of dollars for a synth. That is bull! You can buy a $2000 dollars Waldorf Q and sound like crap. You have to be creative. Don't get me wrong. I would love to have a Waldorf Q, but I would never spend that kind of money for that. I can tell you from experience that this synth rocks. I used to have all kinds of synths in the past. The EG-101 kinda reminds me of when I played around on the Korg Triton LE. The Korg Triton LE is a great synth, but it cost $1200 dollars. The EG-101 cost me $200 dollars. You figure out the math. It's a no brainer. I'm having as much fun with the EG-101 as I had with the Triton LE. I used to have a Nord Lead 2, which I spent over $1000 dollars for. I bought it because of the hype. A couple of months later I picked up a Yamaha An1x in mint condition for $400 dollars. The Nord was sold a month later. The An1x was so fun to use and program. The Nord was not. It was so frustrating trying to program sounds in the Nord. Remember, don't get caught up in the hype. It's all about having fun when you make music, and the EG-101 is definitely fun. I've only had the EG-101 for one day now and I can't stop playing it. Thanks Roland for the wonderful groove synth.

The EG-101 is the best all in one synth I've ever owned. Yeah I'd rather use this baby over a Korg triton. It's hands on. I make Electro music and the 101 is perfect for that. The bass sounds I get are awesome. People don't believe some of the sounds I get from this thing. They expect to see a huge mega-synth in my studio. The point is you have a keyboard that gives you plenty of good basic sounds and a Sampler and speakers. By using this thing called IMAGINATION you then shape the sounds and make them even better. People who winge that this keyboard is crap don't know anything about what this baby can do once you master it. I run this baby with a Roland MC50 (One of the greatest hardware sequencers of ALLTIME) and my efforts have me on the verge of clinching a recording deal with a dance label. Now the peeps on the label could careless what kit I use. Only that it rocks them get it? I'd give the 101 11 out of ten for value for money and hidden potential it's the business.
