I've been grateful surprised with the sounds of the S03: organs are very good, and so the strings and syn pads. I agree with the fact that the keyboard is not a positive point, but the octave buttons and the category search work well.

And, finally, does anyone know how to access to the two SFX kits? Thany you!

Okay, most negative reviews I've seen regard the ability to tweak using the computer software. If the midi is your thing, read another review. I'm good on a PC, but stage performance is my love. I use it as a top tier keyboard in a church to add some flavor to the house keyboard, and I love it. The sounds are wonderful right out of the box, the price tag is good, and although you probably want your primary keyboard to be something more powerful, like a Triton or Motif, the S03 definitely makes a great addition to the keyboard bank. I'm still experimenting with all the sounds, and the percentage of stage quality sounds is much higher than anything I found by Roland or Korg in keyboards twice the price. Plus the simplicity of finding sounds makes the S03 easy to use. Solo, it's just okay. Midi, I really haven't bothered to find out. But as a second keyboard in a bank, it really is worth every penny and more (and it doesn't cost that many pennies).

I love this synth. Just bought it on vacation & have been missing everything while I hole up in a hotel & play with it. Very versatile, and the FX are great. (you can use 3 at a time. Cool.)

I bought my S03 in May 2001 and I haven't been able to leave it alone since! I especially love the Rhodes sounds. I don't have a particularly heavy touch, so the keyboard's light, fast action is great for me. It inspires me to try things I normally wouldn't with my Korg X5D. I haven't tried programming it yet; it sounds great out of the box. The XG sounds appear to be the same as Yamaha's PSR series of keyboards, which range from okay to pretty good. Now if I can just find the time to learn to use the XG works lite sequencer software that came with it...

Great deal for the money, quality sounds, a bit obtuse to program. Excellent FX.
