These are a pretty cool alternative to the Yamaha FM synths (DX7, DX21, etc.) in that the user interface is novel.
* While you can go in and tweak the individual parameters like on the DX's, there are sliders on these that control the fundamental parameters. Underneath the hood, they were using yamaha FM chips.
* Basically, with FM synthesis, you can get drastically different sounds by small adjustments, so this means that you can pull a patch up, and experiment with the sliders and voila...you have something fun.
* Super high-quality construction with metal housing and really nice keybed. Keyboard has pressure (aftertouch), which is also really fun as you can map the pressure to FM parameters for some really wild effects.
* Built in effects
Cool synth just selling as I have too many other synths
