A gimmicky, ugly and complicated synth. Roland have bunged alot of there stuff together to make the sort of synth that works musically today but not tomorrow. These will collapse in price when music tastes alter slightly. A bit like the karma. The light beam stuff is cool. Features Roland and their reps think are great, I think are pretty pointless. Buy a Z1. It's much better. Some sounds are very lush and work well.

This is one of those synths I dont understand.

The concept behind this thing is a amazing and what it can do is amazing as well.. but theres only 2 problems:

1) It's ugly 2) It Sounds like Ass!

This is THE synth for sheer sonic madness. Do not get it for pianos, strings & guitar patches. This is a true niche synth, the one to get with your tax refund money (hint hint), and it will provide you with years of pleasure.

As a VA, it's half-baked (at best) but passable. Also, its sample memory is anemic...so it cannot be used as a proper sampler. But in terms of sound mangling, it's unequalled. There's a horrifying amount of damage you can do to a raw sample or preset patch...I promise you will cackle in disbelief, and compose entire CD's worth of material with the V-Synth alone. Ideally suited for experimental music.

Out of all the synths I own, it's the only one without a "wish list." It's simply perfect. WHAT IS IT? (Simply perfect, Chef!).

Paul Nagle a professional user from UK writes:
The V-Synth is a classic case of the whole being more than the sum of its parts. None of its impressive features are new -- they've all been seen on previous Roland products -- but nevertheless, it's the best new synth in years. We explain why...
