I've owned a Sq1 for four years and I think I could say I feel quite good with it. It's not a very "synth-sounding" synth, but it's exellent to

use for backround music to guitars and the drums are kind of usefull. The drums are good, if you want to program ordinary music, but if

you want to make dance-music this is NOT the synth for you. Th built-in sequncer was usefull back in those days i did'nt owned any

sequenser-program for my PC, now it sucks. Rikard

I like it. I've had mines since 1994 and each time I use it I max it out to the fullest during my songwriting sessions (I'm into urban/contemporary r&b/rap) and I'm very satisfied. Synths on the market today are alot more refined and give you more for your money; but thats the way technology goes. Also synchronizing it (the SQ1) to your 4 track with SMPTE or FSK and bouncing your tracks from your key board to tracks 1 and 2 on your 4 track, gives the possibility of turning your set up into a 32 track midi studio. Use your imagination and look beyond the units limitations and you can get alot out of it. I also purchased the Ensoniq factory sound cards SC-1, SC-2 and EX-1 along with some sounds from Sound Source (master ram/Filmscapes). The three sound cards were very nice; fat drum kits, basses and synths. In my view the sound source sounds were ok. Yeah I almost forgot; I've got the SQ1 32 voice Plus. Some synth owners might have the older version (the regular SQ1) which doesn't enable you to use the extra sounds provided on the 32 voice plus.

Sorry for my bad english, i'm italian! I bought the SQ1 in the '90, when the Korg M1 was the soldest workstation. For me, SQ1 is better, for the simple but powerful sequencer and some sounds like the distortion guitar (not real, but the best in '90). The only problem is The Operative System. The SQ1 crack usually 1 time for year and you need a total memory reset. The sound problem (for me) is the bass drum. No one have the "charge" to make a cool "Tump".
