My Comments
I wasn't entirely sure to call this a module or a keyboard. As I don't have the keyboard attachment, it is sort of like a table top module, but if I get the keyboard, it would certainly be a synth. I haven't had a chance to really go to deep with this but the vocoder is very good. The string and choir sounds are vintage awesomeness. Almost all the controls are on the top panel so it isn't too hard to use. The only thing I haven't been able to test is the sample sequencer. But from what I hear so far this is awesome. The things many people have complained about, are a line in (to be a true vocoder), and the limited polyphony. While these features would be nice I think I am happy with what's here. I remember looking at the VP-770 and even used it was about 3 times the price ( maybe more now). Anyway it was a good buy. Oh and I guess they are discontinued now so I got it just in time. Oh yeah this is my first actual brand new Roland purchase!
