a great little piece that probly will get overlooked as i did as 1st. This was the second synth I got (1st was a Memory MOOG). I have found it to be the easiest to use and the sounds you can create are beyond comparing to other synths. The presets are great, but I have about 50 of my own sounds stored. Very stable and hold memory well if you have a fresh back-up battery. Id recommend dumping all your saved patterns via midi (like to tape from a midiman box). It has rattled more than my studio windows and has had more hands on it in the studio than my MOOG (maybe because no one has ever seen this thing before). With the one value button its the easiest to adjust patterns live...this is a huge thumbs up for me!

If you want fat and warm, this is the way to go. This thing is sooooo *MF* FAT!!! Leads Leads Leads!!!!!!!!! You can actually make it talk to you(if you can play) It beats the F**k out of a Roland. Don't get me wrong; I do love my Roland gear. After buying my Six Trak, I sold my Juno 1 and my Juno 106. My S80 and RS-5 replaced them. I don't know what I'll do if this thing stopped working. No synth can reproduce the six trak sound. I will buy another one for back-up.

So far, no problems---it's built like a tank.

After playing several synthesizers (including some moogs), this is one of the better ones!!! Trust Me!!!! Buy it if you see it and pick up a reverb. You'll love it.

This one's really cool, it has a fat, raw analog sound and filters that just scream self-oscillation! Mine had a bit of a tuningproblem when I first got it but as I started to play it more and more it got better and now the problem's gone! It's not too fun to program though so I just might write me a programmer one of these days. Check out the unison mode and stack mode, they rock! I mean, imagine 6 mono bass synths with each their own sound, triggered at once and just slightly detuned against each other -how much fatter can it get? Get one of these over any of those other overprised things -you can get a lot more out of many cheaper synths than one minimoog! But make sure you get a manual because otherwise you'll miss a lot of the nice features of this lovely machine!

I traded an AN1x for the SixTrac, and although I may have been ripped off a bit, I don't regret it very much. Sure, the AN1x is an excellent piece, but it's a pain to program and it doesn't sound nearly as good as the SixTrac. The SixTrac is beautiful, bread and butter analog synthesis. It has that sweet, blurpy, round, squelchy sound that so classic. I can't say the same for the AN1x. Now, I do agree that the knob makes it a bit tedious to program, but oh, the sound, THE SOUND of this unit is simply amazing. Plus, I know that the value of this unit is enduring, whereas the AN1x is only bound to go down in price as more people get rid of them. Take my advice - the SixTrac is worth it. If you see one for $300 or below, it would be foolish not to buy it.
