I like it. Looks and sounds cool. I often use the strings for my electro music. But also the mono section is nice. Good basses. I wish the poly section had some more control.

Compared to other even cheap synths the Siel Cruise is very limited in its possibilities.

You might say that it is not a real synth at all but more an easy-to-handle preset keyboard with some additional facilities.

There are two reasons for which I think I will not sell my Cruise: First it was my first more-or-like synth at all, which was the start for my biggest hobby und second it has a few very characteristic sounds which you can´t really achieve with other synths as far as I can say.

I like especially it´s remarkable bass and lead sounds and the strings which sound a bit "mellotronic"

Not a real good buy, but has it´s pros.

Very warm and smooth sounding though large and heavy. Not very versitile and it's presets never really sound that great. But every other feature is dead on---the strings sound very early cure and joy division - like if you're into that sort of thing. Currently it's the only analog keyboard I own--and it's great for making "boards of canada"-style eerie 1970's documentary music. I actually love my siel cruise--big and brown plastic with yellow writing and flashing lights--very cool---also a very cheap alternative to buying a minimoog these days!!
