As you read through these reviews, remember this statement: It's a programmers synth!!! As there aren't dedicated knobs for every parameter, you actually need to know a little about programming to make the best out of it and this can also be time consuming, therefore I would not recommend this as a beginners synth. Just like on the Jupiters you'll have to find it's sweet-spots...you can dig into it for a while without finding anything special, but suddenly... it bursts upon you, and then...you're in analogue heaven! There are 36 different parameters listed right in front of you, just dial in the number and tweek the programmers knob, so in fact it isn't to difficult to program after all. The good thing about this is that you can see the value for every parameter in two digit nmbrs. Note them on sheets and, if sysex fails, you'll be able to reprogram your best sounds manually. Soundwise, this is wholly american analogue; sounds are phat, warm and dry, compared to the junos and most other japanese analogues. This in my opinion is a good thing...add a little reverb and this thing shines like nothing else! For leads and bass it is truly supreme, one of the all time best IMO; but other synths, like the prophets, jupiters/junos are better in the poly-department. It shouldn't be compared to anything else like the Junos (I own two of those also), the prophets or moogs, etc. It's different, and it's very analogue, nothing like VA's, in any way. Having had my hands on a lot of synths and currently owning 17, I can with certainty say that this one is special, and for the programmer it will be gratifying. An analogue lead and bass monster.

I never owned one, but back in 1985 I had use of one that was owned by a college roommate. This was my first exposure to a synth that you could multi-track on, and I was very excited by that feature at the time. This was of course long before the age of cheap and fully featured PC based sequencers. It was also the first multi-timbral synth, but if anyone had told me that in 1985 I wouldn't have known what they were talking about. In retrospect it wasn't a really very phatt sounding synth, but I liked the sounds I was able to get out of it, and 'songs' I was able to create on it. A bit overpriced these days, but a nice beginner's synth nonetheless.

Hi, Now I've got two sixtrack working together. guess how much I've paid ? The two synth for 35 dollars.....(in Switzerland) good deal, very good deal. they are working good.... I think the sound is good but a little thin....it's not a problem because it's up to you to make it better.... just turn the knob..... SYD.B

A nice bit of wood and cheap, thin steel. The sounds can be quite deep, but unusable in stack mode. Not like a real synth as some has said. The process is long winded. Nothing organic. Single oscillator stuff. Not as fluid as a 106 or anything else in its price range. The sixtrax has been dragged along by other Sequential synths. It is very overpriced in the UK. Not rubbish but not great.
