It’s a very flexible synth and sounds pretty great, but it is quite old and the user interface does feel it a bit. Particularly thinking about the 2 line LCD display, even though there are plenty of knobs, you do end up using the display quite a lot and it’s not the best… so while it doesn’t require “menu diving” for everything, when you do need to, it’s not that great. But if you see a great price on one, it is a lot of synth for the money and I’m still happy I tracked one down!
I’d definitely consider the Peak if you can stretch to it. Great interface and sound and very flexible.
