It is incredible. And when you consider the other odd gear I have (Soviet synths and drum machines and other bizarre items), it looks great too. I just got this cartridge for it "Music Composer", man is that the most opaque program ever (I don't have the manual). It's easy enough to figure out the synth part, it's just programming patterns/songs into it is what I haven't yet figured out.

Well I got/am getting my gear from a friend, but looking at the site it looks like the stuff is still available...but I dunno. If it is or isn't doesn't bother me personally, since I've got the stuff ;) ---ferko
