Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Quality is pretty good. You would definitley want a hardshell case to take this out to gigs. Key action is good for leads and it is extremely easy to use and get up and running quickly.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
I like all of the features with exception to the genre knob. I am ok with how the bass, lead, and vocoder banks have been separated and the A/B switch is even fine. I would prefer that the sound type have larger banks but I suppose it doesn't take long to learn where your go to sounds are and there is a nice LED screen there to read which patch is up.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Very easy to use. Plug it in and away you go. Very straight forward and easy to edit with the downloadable software. Manual is helpful for hardware features and software manual is on-line. Software editor is great and easy to use.
How is the tone?
Sound quality is great. Bass quality is fat. Synth sounds are punishing. I am very happy with quality of sounds. Exceeded my expectations actually.
Was this item an overall good value?
I think this is an awesome value. I bought it mostly for the Vocoder which is of a really high quality. I was very impressed with the Polysynth, Bass, and Lead sounds that were in as presets. The bonus with this synth is that it has a very cool arpegiator built in to it that can be applied to all sounds. Very cool for under $500.
