I wasn't debating that 23... the 777 looks great ... and whatever I said in my thread that you quoted could be said of the 777 as well (except the new part) ... but I'd rather have the XS, that is all.

If I didn't want another XS so bad I would.
I was originally going to hop aboard that train of thought that 23 so eloquently expresses about the 777 vs. XS, but not having tried an XS, I was reluctant. But as long as the door's open on this subject, let me just add two things here, bakeded:

1) It might be nice to keep the 777 around to just to add a slightly different flavor to your layer of sound.

and

2) There's something to be said for a unit having its own onboard sequencer. That split-second decision in a live situation is often more easily carried out within the same physical unit (especially if the "reach" distance is shorter for your fingers). Also, the physical differences of the two sequencers (Orb vs. 777's built-in), may give you more latitude in your playing style.

Just my 2 cents here for you, bakeded. You made your decision to sell the 777 before the Orb even arrived and I just wanted you to have ample opportunity to think it through.

That was probably a good decision bakeded... one of each has got to be a lot cooler than two of the same.
