« Great instrument, brilliant sounds, excellent synth engine »

This workstation (synthesizer, sequencer, sample-reader) is a joy to use. The sounds are really great and definately take after GEM's predecessors (the S-series synths). The only two little nags are in the display (waaaay too small) and the lack of polyphonic aftertouch. The drawbar-section is a very nice addition with a number of brilliant organ sounds already in memory. I really like the Equinox a lot, though I'd prefer the S3 as a performance tool.

Oh, and another minor downside (of all GEM-synths) is it's weight. You really don't want to carry these machines to gigs, it'll hurt your back.

They go quite cheap these days as this is an underrated synth, the last serious machine that left the GEM factory...

Try one if you run into it. You'll like it.
