The MC-505 is a very deep machine indeed. If you are getting a deal, then jump on it. However, you will want to be prepared to learn the machine and all its capabilities which are extensive. Be sure and get the manual (very helpful) and I also recommmend getting the video manual. Theres a lot of detail to this machine and if you take the time to learn it, you wont be sorry. The possiblities are endless with the MC-505. Theres really nothing like it out there IMHO--its awesome!!!

I have had the 505 for a few years and this thing is absolutly amazing...Alot of the preset sounds aren't that great but the synth engine is very deep and lush sounding..I can make searing leads,Lush pads and wonderfull piano's FOr a while it has been my only synth until I recently got a Micro Modular but the 505 is just so wicked...the drums even sound alot like older drum machines...And for live use don't even get me started...you could run a whole live show off this one machine ( I have )...If you want to hear some great sounding ambient stuff I made goto www.mp3.com/lucid-484 it'll show you some of the awesome sounds you can get after programming it yourself..It also work great in a midi studio and works perfect alongside cakewlak in my studio...I paid $1300 when it first came out and I believe that price was fair when I paid for it...if you could get it cheaper than I wouldnt hesitate on getting one!!!

The MC-505 is powerful. It is SO far beyond the MC-303 that its not even comparable. I used to have the MC-303, but the 505 makes it look like a toy. I had no idea that this 505 would be THAT much better of a machine!! Mind-blowing and easy to operate too although its very deep. It will take some time to access all its potential. A heck of a lot of fun to play with right from the start. I love it. The possiblities are endless.

Just got back from vacation and only had my 505 with me. But due to big delays at airports, I now have a fat ass track. I just wish this thing were battery powered, so I could play on the flight too.

The 505 has a real nice soundset, yea, but where it really shines is in the manipulation of it. It's never been easier for me to turn a piano into an organ grinding drone, or vice versa. The LFO's are intuitive to tweek as well. This machine is great if you wanna break into some new styles (i.e. ones you make yourself) and really inspiring to the knob twiddlers.
