It's worthless junk. Only worth about $10.00.

Please let me know who is selling it and I will give them twice what it's worth (that $20.00 U.S.) just so that nobody else gets suckered into buying this utter piece of c**p.

Don't worry, I am not just trying to score one of these and I don't have a place in my rack waiting to be filled by one....

Sorry, I couldn't resist trying to be funny.

the original SE-1 is well worth the $600-750 they are selling for these days, but the SE-1 is well known to have the worst quantizing/stepping on the parameters especially the filter out of any analog synth ever made.

even the X model isn't snappy at all compared to a good vintage synth or pure analog synth with no digital control. But you can't argue against patch storage and midi, plus they are small and weigh next to nothing!

I think comparing to a voyager or anything really isn't fair because it has it's own sound. I think it's a very useful synth if you don't try to make it do things it can't.

Sorry, I was having a bit of fun. Pretending it was bad so that you'd let me buy it for $20.00. IU forgot to add the little emoticon that would indicate I was being sarcastic. I hope I didn't dissuade you from buying it because I was trying to be a commedian.

I hear it's a good synth but I have no idea what it's worth. I would buy one if the price was right.
