I love mine. My opinion has changed. Beware. Red ones are being sold on ebay for mega-money. It used to be silver ones making more. Red ones are no rarer than silver. They look more toy like and have the same features. Avoid over-priced red. It's a recent con. It is not the same as red SH101 Rolands. Now, what a great little board this is. Indestructable and funky-looking. It is a proper midi controller. Honestly! One of the 3 must have mini Yamahas. The CS-01, any VSS sampler and the SHS-10. All great things. The SHS sounds are thin. The drum beats are pss stuff. Thats not the point. This can run any midi gear. It looks great on stage, not like Roland and Korg remotes which look ugly. The Yamaha looks cute and retro. Look out for badly listed examples on ebay. You can get a bargain. Well listed ones will make $150 and more. In England they can make nearly £200! Wow!

Realy good fun. The sounds are naff. The midi possibilities make it an interesting proposition. It can be a proper controller. It looks quite good. Is it a toy or a serious instrument? Possibly a toy for a child with lots of money, gear and ambition. You really can strut about playing your Andromeda. I know, I've done it. I also got it to play 'Last Christmas', the demo, on my JD800. This board is a must for 80s tribute bands. when I tried to get one, people wanted loads of money. Up to £100. I paid £55 on an ebay deal. It had leaked batteries in it. Must have added a quid to the postage. The sounds are 2 op FM...like it or hate it. The pitch bend etc works over midi.

All-in all, an interesting little beast. It's much lighter than an ugly Korg or Yamaha remote. I can't think of anything quite like it in synthdom. They are fiercely collected. Remember to get one with the strap and battery cover. Both red and silver look good.

Undestroyable? When working on batteries (fully charged) mine tends to stop working (no sound at all, while the numbers are still illuminated), and doesn't do anything on an adapter. It used to work fine and then I always carried it with me at school, making up annoying songs about people that walked by... And who can refuse "last christmas" as a demo?!
