I still love my Hawk-800 MkII!!! I'm able to make sounds with this synth that none of my other gear can match. Using a simple Novation Remote LE-25 controller makes it even more enticing because of the velocity response and other realtime tweaks. Even though I have the Moog Slayer pots, 12/24db filter switches, digital delay time pot, and FM-800 pot I barely have to touch the Hawk once it is set properly. The Remote can access enough functions to keep me jamming for hours. This kit has been very well thought out and I would not give it up for love or money.
