The sequencer kicks ass. You can record in real-time, or you can punch in different notes individually. This machine also has it's own tone generator, drum kit and voice editing(sythinisizer) ability. It can serve as the centerpeice of a midi system.

Price paid



It's reasonably easy to use most features, but some features reguire a lot of knowlege and technical music how.


The sounds that come out of thing are not the greatest. i'd describe them as mechanical and robotic. The machines sounds are orintated more towards techno music. But with a lot of tweaking, a decent hip-hop song can be created.


Iv'e had the machine for several years, and the only thing that has gone wrong with the machine is one of the keys loss its pressure sensitivity. I have to really press hard for the key to signal the sound.

It's ok. It's not meant for hip-hop though.
