Horrible, horrible, horrible... The sounds are poor, basic and bored tones, don't have inspiration.

.. this thing is portable and runs on 6 x AA batteries .. it is extremely easy to use and the manual is well written .. I use rechargable batteries to save money ... it doesn't save sequence data and also doesn't have a storage memory to save any settings after the power runs out .. it does have midi in/out for storing and transfering settings .. you have to use midi to get 2 instruments or more to sound on the same note .. the little keypad is handy in a Midi Rig and can be used to send midi-notes data .. so it is pretty versatile in a well thought out midi rig .. I often see pro-keyboard players with these velcroed somewhere into there rigs so they must be handy for live rigs too .. I think all the instruments sound very reasonable and are highly useable in a mix also .. keypoints .. small and portable, GM midi Set, Miniature Keyboard, Midi in/out .. the main downside to this unit would be lack of tweaking options of the onboard sounds and no onboard sequencer .. if you are looking for a "real synth" this isn't it. These fit in real good with existing rigs and are versatile enough to be kept handy .. I paid about $90US for my one and bought it off ebay in August 2005 .. I will keep this instrument, it compliments my home studio rig beautifully without taking up space ..

I bought a Qy8 and a MU5 and if you connect it you have a sequencer and a tone generator for only $200, very great!

I´m still very sorry that I bought this sh*t. But back in 94 I was in desperate need for some sound module and the Mu-5 was it. hm. Well, for the first timer, the entry level musician on a low budget, these little toys can help for a little time. No possibilties to edit sounds, boring GM sounds only, the drums are ok.

It's only $300... I paid 225 for mine a few years ago. It was the first sound module I had ever bought. It has a great acoustic bass , great drums (except the "analog kick" sux much ass) and overall worth the few bucks I paid for it. It could probably do decent D+B or Jungle, but not much else. There are NO effects what so ever, which really blows chunks. But oh well. I sold it about 2 years ago and now I kinda miss it.
