I agree, I wouldn't use my MicroQ for the entire drum kit, but it does manage to produce an amazing clap, and I daresay the best kick I've ever heard. Ever!

I agree with everyone here. This synth is a beast! I'm having fun with my Guitar triggering the Vocoder! With a little imagination you are capable of anything! Nice filters, great pads. Fantastic Leads! A great compliment to my Nord Lead II. Drums leave much to be desired (no worse than the Korg Prophecy though!) Worth every penny! Keep it at the bottom of your rack and away from deep components! This guy is so shallow that it's tough to switch cables if your not into contorting yourself into impossible ways (which I'm not-thanks for asking!) Had to tape the wall wart plug into the back. I know it's cheaper to build it with an external power supply, but a wire catch wouldn't even cost a nickle! HELLO!! Manual is really helpful!! Will walk through someone who is new to sound synthesis. Very user friendly!

I just got mine yesterday, and I love the machine. I traded in my redsound darkstar and Akai s2000 for it. The sounds are fat, warm, cold, thin, beautiful, ugly, wahtever you want it to be. Editing is quite a breeze considering the few knobs, but I also have sounddiver. A real bang for the buck, great presets, suposedly compatible with the Q, so there are some patches floating around the internet. Mine does have some bugs though (OS 1.17), some glitches when doiong a program change and the OS crashed on me once, which is a bit of a nuisance since it has a software power button, so I had to pull out te powerplug to restart it. Apart from that incident, no problems, and I recommend it, alhtough I hope the bugs are fixed soon.

This thing sounds good ! It will not beat my Mks80 in unison mode but it's very divers

Just try to sweep all the waves in the wavetable ;-)

This machine is a beast for sure

and if you think it sounds very front242 you better learn how to dive deep into a machine.

versatile is the word

Any doubts about this synthesizer should be extuinguished in my mind. Its easily programmable, the interface isnt hard to follow at all once you read the great manual they have provided. The sounds are dazzling, they have a digital edge to them which makes this machine absolutely perfect for techno/trance/ industrial/gothic music. Delve deep into this machine and you will experience sonic qualities about it that will surprise you. Like someone noted before, this is not just another peice of gear. This is an expressive and powerfully intriguing monster. Waldorf could have made the organs and strings a little better in my mind. The percussive sounds it has to offer are wonderful. Give this machine a shot and you'll discover that 4 knobs are plenty to program with. I have barely begun to use the Micro-q and Wavetable synthesis and find it has earned itself of high acclaim for its sound, this is a programmers synth, spend some time with this machine and play the sounds that emulate from your mind...It can do a lot, even with the 4 knobs!! For 750 bucks there isnt a better deal in my mind out there...BUY IT!
