It's a nice piece of equipment (price/result). I also have some extra sound cards. I use it as and addition to the rest of my studio.

I don't understand the tone 'Nordic Dance'. Is it some sort of a japanese joke? I do like the fact that it has six outputs. That's useful when making a mix. I'm not too thrilled about the effects though. I hope they make a U­220 with 64 voices, 16 parts MT and snappier drum sounds. 6+1 parts need a lot of managing, even for the relatively simple popsongs and ­arrangements I write.

I use the U220 for many years, mainly on stage. I do like its sounds. They are always present, and do not loose their character, though using different PAs, or having different acoustic conditions. The disadvantage is, some parameters (e.g. transpose) can merely be programmed in timbres, not in patches.

I love the U220 - let my Juno and sampler and Sw60XG do the weird things and the u220 happily makes sesnible noises. Shame the sound cards never really caught on - a 3rd party manufacturer almost started making some, but I don't think they ever managed (unless you know better). Good bargains going, and I heartily reccommend it, though I'm sure the U20 version sounds a little better (though it has even less card slots and only 28? poly). Some more real time control would be nice. And has anyone found a good shareware editor/librarian for it? Only 4/5 for fiddly control - Roland had the solution with the Juno Alpha Dial, then abandoned it for fiddly D and U series!

I've used the U-220 sparingly since it first came out. I think it sounds great, but I find it totally maddening to use. The Roland configuration heirarchy is insane, and I don't think I have ever successfully figured it out. I'd love to crack the code, because I think it has a lot of potential. Every once in a while I play one of the factory demos and get very discouraged.
