Anyone familiar with this? One just went up for sale in my area and it seems like it's worth buying (still have space for a full-size in my room)

I never had the luck to try one out in person,
but I've heard quite a few people who's opinion I trust rave on about what a great sounding synth it is.
If it's not too pricey, I'd go for it.
Too many of us (including me) have an SH101, Juno60,...
so it's always a good idea to have a synth in your arsenal that not so many others have.

a few days, a few months

here's one with the ax60 doing most of the important sounds ... chords, bassline, some hats, percs, etc. there are some other drum samples and the kick isn't being generated by it (although it can do kicks quite well, especially nice murky ones)

I remember buying one at a Pawn Shop in Texas a long time ago. The filter is kind of dirty sounding. Forgot what happened to it.
