Just picked this puppy up a few days ago in good condition at a fair price AND with the Access controller also with OS v2.0 !!! What a catch, im really happy with it. At first when i got it home i played about with the presets and some of the saved sounds from the previous user and i thought "oh no...what have i bought" but then after a few days of playing with the wavetables and the knobs on the controller im beginning to appreciate what a joy it is to program some nutty sounds out of it. I've already encountered some good noises like a Vangelis bladerunner type "horn-synth" and also some creepy sweeps and interesting trancey basslines. All in all a great buy and i wil give it a 4 out of 5..may it live long in my rack ! Respect

Compared to the XT the MW1 sounds not so harsh and digital because of the analog filter. IMO the analog filters give much more deepness to the sound and make it live. the xt or MW2 is surely better when you prefer the harder, needle-type sound. my waldorf wave sounds very close to a MW1 (when you forget these extra possibilities and filter-types), but the MW1 has even more in the low-end. if you are a access virus user there is a template which turns the virus in an access MW1 controller!!!

If you have a W1 and MKS80 synths in your arsenal then you won't need anything else, with these two monsters; there's nothing you can't do when it comes to creating sounds. They both sit perfect in a track. uW1 has the sweetest sounding analog filters. It is capable of lush string sounds and at the same time razor sharp icy sounds. And all the routing capabilities. If you can get all the ROM cards (as I was lucky enough to find) for it then you'll be in a wavetable heaven. I also use the editor from "itelios.com" which is not there anymore. I also have the uW2. But these two synths are completely different sounding. If you see one then get it. Make sure it's rev 2.0

Ow, this one is so very cool. When I bought it, I espected to have something very special. But when I heard the presets and tried to edit them, it was quite disappointed. I just didn't love it. That interface... I started to use it in my songs (my first multitimbral unit) because I had to and the sounds it created were ok, but still I wanted to sell it because of...that interface... Because nobody wanted it for the price I had bought it, so i kept it. Suddenly I saw that wicked Acces programmer for sale and jumped on it... Since then, the MW lived up. I still use it in every songs and it still surprises me for the infiniteness of sounds you can create with it. It has both warmte and glassyness in the sound. That programmer did wonders to me. Leads, basses, bells, all warm and digital, it's impressively beatiful...

Yeah, just get it and work it.
