- Arranger keyboard with 61 keys pressure sensitive. Touched kind synth. A bank of 100 rhythm patterns and another 100 sounds divided into 10 categories (Rock, World, ect ... for patterns, and piano, winds, sets, ect ... for sounds).
MIDI In and Out. It's a good point!
Jacks for headphone and sustain pedal.
Tone knob to adjust the pitch.
9V DC power jack.
No effects section.
Ability to record his compositions with the small included memory.
- Configuration (too) simple. Nothing is editable, everything is already pre-registered.
Almost nothing is realistic in this arranger, both sounds (ugly, it must be said, except the sound of cathedral organ, which I liked), and in terms of patterns (too mechanical and repetitive, and often do not really correspond to reality).
To play chords on beats two possibilities: either they are really playing (the keyboard is able to recognize the main types of agreements, reversed or not) or was the Casio system: it plays a note (eg C ), the agreement is major (C major), two (Do Re), the agreement is a minor, three, was a dominant seventh chord, four, was a minor 7. It's good for a child, but to learn to play really ...
Each pattern has a right to intro (long or short), a wagon, a fill-in, and a coda (short or long).
Ability to independently adjust the volume of the battery (or drums), and the other intruments.
I never read the manual, except for learn how to use MIDI.
- Overall Opinion
- I used it for over ten years. I improvised and composed my first songs on it. It was a gift, and I've always been very happy.
He is now in the basement (there is a button that is not responding).
Its features are completely outdated today, it is also why I no longer use it but it is a keyboard which I like because it has sentimental value ... my first contact with a musical instrument!
And, on occasion, I may be reused in me as a master keyboard ...
- - 5 octaves.
- CONTRL can not hand the keys of the piano with our fingers: D but it is possible to connect a small pedals to sustain.
- One headphone / output.
- MIDI in, MIDI out.
- A small knob "tone".
- 100 sounds and 100 rhythms with accompaniment.
- The keys are not agile.
- In terms of configuration is very simple: there are not any!
We choose one among the organs, trumpets, pianos, harpsichord, drums, percussion Chinese and whatnot ... and we play.
You can play over the trimmings on offer with the right hand, followed by the left hand (it runs the accompaniment by playing an agreement) ... mmmouais, blah ...
But at least you will find no easier (part may be a piano: D)
- Overall Opinion
- Prt of it - play ... Except that it's ugly! This is an old synth with trs trs old sounds! There are three piano sounds, and they are ugly all three! Even when there are few things that ring true, but for nostalgic 80's only!
When I was offered this synth I had 5 or 6 years then j'tais forcment not hard: D
But hey it's not his fault if he is old! I think c'tait plutt not bad for the era!I never use the trimmings (except a few that I use as mtronome) and I use that synth just to play the piano. I plug it on my SE-50 for reverbs and phasers, which makes it a little drinking prs.
So I do not use a fifth of its capabilities, but I play a lot since I have no other synth or piano.
This synth has t same when my first contact with music, so I'm may be a few places, so I know if I sold it (by the way that would?) but one thing is sure, when I'm rich, I Achteras better! That - that just a latest issue!
