When I first saw this a while back, I thought "TOY!!!" - I was going through a major clear out of my studio (for "studio" read - box room) and getting rid of most of my gear, because I was relying more on software synths.

Out of sheer curiosity, I bought one off ebay (175.00 - after all, what else do you spend redundancy money on to cheer you up?)

I am now stuffing my vizzog with copious ammounts of Humble Pie - this "Toy" is stunning, truly stunning, a bitch to program, but stunning. It's way better sounding than my previous Virtual Analogue, a Roland JP8000, which I was starting to miss, and can emulate an Odyssey quicker than you can say Fick Off.

Next purchase... The full sized Ion.
