I saw Stevie Wonder using one as well. Also bands like the Deftones and composers like Hans Zimmer and Danny Elfman (2 of my favorites btw) have also used them as well. So definitely versitle! :D

True....and if I'm not mistaken doesn't Access have patches available created by Icon of Coil? Also, I thought some time ago Tom Shear of Assemblage 23 put out a bank of patches as well, but I may be wrong.

How are the Tom Shear ones? Worth looking into or not?

They're decent. Several are actually patches from older A23 songs.

....hmmm, if they are patches from old songs perhaps I don't need. I guess you could always take the patches as a starting to point to branch off into something else though.
