I'm fairly happy with this synth though i'm still struggling to find sounds that i'm REALLY satisfied with. I've been concentrating on getting some really lively bass lines out of it but am yet to find something that really cuts through like a Virus etc..(price/ spec difference duly taken into account!). Any tips from anyone?

This synth certainly does not warrant a 5! The stepping problems and distortion aside (which can be minimized by turning off the bass boost), the Oscillators are rather weak. The oscillators are generally what makes a synth either 'shallow' or 'deep', and the nature of the sampled waveforms on the SH-32, assures this synth, at least in polyphonic mode, will be 'shallow'. There is not enough harmonic content in the oscillators for it to sound 'deep'. That said, I can get a pretty decent monophonic sound out of it, especially with the filter cutoff past 3 O'clock. It even gets close to a jupiter 8 sound, or at least closer than the Junos! For this it deserves a 3.

The SH-32 is fantastic! I bought one on e-Bay for less than $250. Great MIDI implementation. Easy to program. Unbelievable sounds from just a 2-oscillator synth! This is like an old ARP 2600 on steriods! Not an ideal live performance synth, but perfect for studio use.

If your not into soft/synths and tired of looking at the computer try this unit out. Nothing else like it for the price. Hands on fun. Takes a while to learn but not that much work. This is a great unit for the price they are going for on e-bay these days. Not your only synth but a good addition. Love the Arp.

I picked it up used for $300. Lots of usable sound for the money. Great for midrange sounds with lots of movement...leaves my (scarce) VCO's to do the heavy lifing in the bottom and top ends.

As all synths there are stregnths and weaknesses. Play to the strengths of the sh-32 and you will be very happy. It has a sound all it's own...one that I am quite happy with.

It's solid enough to gig with, and my really expensive stuff stays in the studio...safe and sound.

I Guess it's like a scooter...fun to ride until someone actually sees you on it.

Does it misbehave when pushed to it's limits...yes, but so does my K2500.
