E Mu Vintage Keys Module

What do you guys think of this ? Think it might be a decent addition if I can find one for a hundred bucks. Sounds decent to my ears.

Actually, it is one of the very few things that I didn't keep long. I preferred a lot more the sounds from the Roland M-VS1! But I didn't change the presets, so there might be more to it that I just didn't see. I havn't seen any for a hundred bucks, so you'll have to keep looking to grab it: mine sold for $160 in minutes, and it was the cheapest one I've seen in 4 years!

-Roland TR707
-Yamaha DX7

Definitely worth $100. Great for the Rhodes and Wurli samples, etc. For synthy stuff it's kind of limited and not fun to program, but I didn't get it for that anyhow.

It's not worth it if you have a sampler that can load EIIIx CDs. They are good sounds though, I still use them in Kontakt (used to have an ESI4000).
