Yamaha QY100, any opinions?

I've been thinking of buying this, but I'm not sure. It's just for private use to fool around with, for now.

What do you think of it?

Re: Yamaha QY100, any opinions?

I had one for a couple of years, but sold it a few months ago. Basically, I found that everything the QY did (playing midi files, sequencing, backup patterns, etc) was easily duplicated with the laptop -- only much better. If you're into midi sequencing on the fly, then the QY would be good. But if you're looking for a portable practice tool, there are better, cheaper, and smaller products out there. For what I do, the QY just didn't fill a unique niche.

Incidentally, I hated the guitar overdrive tones in the QY. The clean sounds were good, but the distortion/overdrive tones sounded lousy.
