I have a PS04 and I absolutely love it. I also have my "major" recording equipment located in the basement, and can't get down there as often as I'd like, so the PS04 gives me the ability to lay down ideas in between visits to the "studio". I also have 1 1/2 year old daughter, so I pop it on my waste and can move from room to room while overseeing her at play. I travel a lot too which makes it all worth while. You'd be amazed at the options with the drums and bass, everything for that matter. I suggest downloading the user guide to get a feel for what you can do creation-wise. The quality is very good for the price point and I have very often loaded the recordings from the PS04, right into my workstation, not changing a thing other than adding some more tracks. You simply can't be the abilities this thing has for what it costs.
