i dont own one, but i've spent considerable time playing with one in a music store (the only store near me that stocks synths only has korgs), and i can safely say that the interface is dead easy to learn, tweaking is a breeze, and just to see, i replicated a patch i had been using on my mono/poly o...

the poly 800's dead memory was the reason i joined this forum in the first place, theyre fun, and as stab said, they like guitar pedals, some nice distortion and delay/reverb goes down well with them. also, if you dont want piles of 80's cheese, think of it as a blank canvas, because most of the pre...

what will you be controlling with your midi controller? presumably you will be using a softsynth of some description? if so, then your sonic capabilities are very wide, but some prefer the more tactile approach of a hardware synth. the microkorg is a good synth, and can be used as a midi controller ...

the dead key thing (as was already stated) is probably dirty contacts, (my mono/poly had the same thing, 2 dead keys, and one that worked sometimes. its quite easy to clean the contacts, as the synth is very take apart friendly. the "electrical smell" worries me though, is it the same smell as a bur...

the mono/poly is an awesome synth, its really versatile, and the poly mode isn't that bad, despite being paraphonic. i agree with the sentiment that an external chorus/reverb unit does help a lot with the poly mode, but the mono mode need absolutely NO thickening! :D its a great board, you'll like it

its not a pedal effect, but i've used the zoom RFX-1000 for a long time with both synths and guitar, and it works perfectly, i dunno how much they go for, i got mine off a mate a while back for about $20
i know its not pedal, but if you can consider rack gear, its quite good.

have a good one,

i hate the "mono/poly is a bad polysynth" line sure its paraphonic if you wanna get technical, but its definately not the POS that some people make it out to be i use mine almost 50/50 in either mode. also, the aforementioned "why do you need another keyboard? arent they all the same?" drives me up ...

Native Instruments Kontakt does those things, it's quite fiddly though, you need to spend a lot of time getting it right before you perform, otherwise its good.
