What is your overall opinion of this product?
I do a lot of project recording in a well-equipped home studio. For the work I do, I need a synth that provides me with high-quality, useful sounds without a lot of tweaking. This synth is a perfect fit. While there are plenty of tweaking options available (if that is your thing) the preset sounds are great in multiple musical genres. I was shocked at the high quality of the guitar sounds -- I am one of those people who swore I would never use synthesized guitars in a recording. Since I got this synth about two months ago, I have used the guitar sounds on three projects, and my clients have been thrilled with the final products. The strings, particularly solo violin, are fantastic. The keyboards and pianos are what you would expect from Yamaha. The pads and lead synth sounds are useful, nothing special. The basses are solid. Controls on the synth are generally intuitive. The keys feel solid. Great little synth, particularly if you are on a budget.
