If you could only get one, which one would you get, and why? They aren't that far apart in cost, but I don't have money for both. Listening to samples online They both sound great. I use YMF-71x cards usually, though my collection goes from SB1.5 and up with a large variety through time. I think my rarest one is a Logitech soundman games. Anyhow, one thought I had is being able to use the SC-88 with a larger range of sound cards without wavetable headers?

Please let me know your opinions 😀

Depends how you plan to use it. X2 is great for GM, but if you want to play something that uses GS, then X2 is limited to the dreambank, so 88 would be better.

Modules: CM-64, CM-500, SC-55MkII, SC-88 Pro, SY22, TG100, MU2000EX, PLG100-SG, PLG150-DR, PLG150-AN, SG01k, NS5R, GZ-50M, SN-U110-07, SN-U110-10, Pocket Studio 5, Dreamblaster X2

I would go for the X2 with the GUD bank instead of sc-88 , the GUD bank is really nice

Are you preferring GUD to Buran too?
