Can't say enough about this thing, it is the complete package for the money. The new XV patches are great and try the XV drum kits with the 4 way vel switching I guaranty your drum sequences will sound more real than ever! 4 SRX expansions would have been nice instead of two but there are 4 SR-JV80 slots and there are some great cards in that series. If your looking for a bread and butter synth with great matrix control, this is the one. You'll be hooked after you hear the first note through those great converters.

If it's so tight why would you give it a 1? I used to own one but foolishly sold it. It is a great piece for the money. I will have to pick up another some day.

Yes, this is my workhorse. The sounds are all cool and usable (which is the most important!), tons of unique pads, cool leads, nice piano, orchestral sounds are not realistic, though fit well in the mix which is the most important. The only thing it really lacks is number of multi effects processors - with only one it's hard to work in the multitembral mode. Well patches still soun well, but if you compare them to original... You'll want to use them with fx! And this is the problem! I use it every song - check my music at www.ampcast.com/georgeicefield and you'll find loads of XV sounds there - they are easily recognizable!
