I have the "198-machine" version from a few years ago, and it's come in handy a few times, although I do have some terrific sample libraries and have been lucky enough to personally sample some popular machines (including some great old 'rhythm boxes') and those get sourced the most.
I think it's odd that existing companies that once made machines (like Roland, Yamaha, AKAI et al) don't offer legacy sample libraries, since just about everything is virtual now. I have several versions of the classic Roland sounds, but I'd pay to have "official" files from the source.
But it's nice to have access to these grey-area libraries with sounds that are otherwise gone forever. :)
