  • Part of me likes it for the available filter types, and the spectral morphing that can be done.
  • Part of me likes it for the layered patches with overall function generator.
  • Part of me likes it for the ability to arbitrarily set loops, allowing for hard, buzzy leads, drones, and noise.
  • Part of me likes it for the dated, yet well-done samples from the classic E-mu library. There's something about the aesthetic of these short-loop samples that does it for me. They have a certain degree of artifact that I enjoy - realism, but not at all realistic, if that makes sense.

cheers,

Yes it does, very much so and a great summation.

Yamaha DX1, my freaking huge and unwieldy Fairlight CMI, Kawai K5000, Alesis Andromeda A6, Ensoniq Fizmo, ancient Prophet 5, and my dumb old Synclavier. And my Kurzweil K2600xs. Nah, just kidding, I don't own any of those. :lol:

Haven't played my Fizmo for a while because of a missing power supply.
