I have the Genesis 3 and the Control X floorboard. I bought them the first week it came out. I really wanted a desktop model since I play on my computer so much and its the same exact thing as yours but its a desktop. I liked it a lot more than the pod when I played it at Mars Music. The only thing I dont like about it is the fact that changing setting on it is so cryptic...i mean there is a lot of stuff packed into it for it to only have a few little knobs here and there and a few buttons...just never liked the hit this button and turn this knob at the same time and it will turn this thing on. I am of the opinion that if you try hard enough you can get some great sounds out of all the recent modeling contraptions...its just a matter of figuring them out.
