Sorry for the late bump but I got the 3p when it first came out in '84 and still love it. The punchy brass is the best.
The strings are also thick with the proper detune and chorus and an added external chorus delay.
The best compliment I ever got was from a music professor who listened to one of my classical recreations who said "How did you do that?"
The programmer is fast, versatile and feeds creativity on the fly.

The only draw back I found on this was no portamento. Not sure if the others have it but its a huge hole on an otherwise great synth.
