What a synth.

The 505 is full, the bass is thick, the controls are simple and easy to use making it fast to create a killer sound 25 seconds after firing it up.
It does round bass, strings, fat leads and chunky pads really well. Not the synth for you if you're looking for the same sound every time you turn it on, becuase it really does vary with the slightest setting change. It's perfect for creating cool samples to reference again or to fill out that chorus that just needs some more warmth or fatness.

Bummer to see it go but I really believe that if you're not using your gear all the time, you should pass it off so it doesn't die. 

I'm happy to do some recordings for you and cycle through some sounds, let me know if I can help let you know if this would be a good choice for your studio! Send me a message. 

Just to note, cosmetically it's in great shape. It has a few scratches on the siding, as pictured. As well, the "MOD" header has rubbed off.
