Damn right about that.
I lusted after this one a year after buying my DW back in the 80s, but couldn't afford it. Finally got one in '03 and had it up until about '10. It's a beast. Same analog filters as DW, improved 12-bit waveforms over the DW's 8-bit (had a beefier sound as a result), twin DDLs over the DW's single one, and best improvement of all: OSCILLATOR SYNC on sampled waveforms -- a synthesizer rarity.
