The WS1 is a keyboard / arranger down on PCM (2 MB ROM).
CHARACTERISTICS dj t have the say in the Previous opinion, I do not rpterai!

In any case, the arranger has good CHARACTERISTICS trs. Note that I possd the WS1-D which has a floppy drive 3 "1 / 2 HD (720 KB) to store sounds, styles, etc ...

UTILIZATION

Trs nothing complicated with this arranger ... It's pretty much "choose and play!"

The complaint I have is at the option of synthse: plutt limits (no filter cutoff / rsonnance), but an arranger! Nanmoins can leave the sounds and effects trs INTERESTED if the head is growing well!

The particularity of the arranger is that it has a sound of strings and choir particulirement excellent compared to "toys" playskool now (like the Triton, not the name). For the era, Admont! I doubt it has done better since in the Contents (except Kurweil THE REFERENCE remaining K2000).

In short, trouble free use ...

OVERALL OPINION

I possd the arranger for 3 years, 3 years of loyal service!
Haaa ... good memories! Sounds squence jarriennes, choirs and strings thrs poustouflantes ... And so beautiful are synthtico-bizarrodes ...

This is an arranger, but full of sonic possibilities!

I have to sell it against-heart, and a honntement EMBT me well ... m'embte and forever! I Rasht one in a while, may be (with a Virus or kB kC)!
This is an arranger who watched trs well ... And I could not do without!
Maximum score for much of this feeling towards arranger, like my D50 ...

UTILIZATION

The handling of this keyboard is very easy. Its screen, small size, is sufficient to show the settings and menus are easily discover exploitable.
Editing the sounds is limited to basic functions, but can already s "a little fun. Remember that this is not a synthesizer but an arranger keyboard. Porpres can create his style.
The manual is clear and complete, you can see here:

OVERALL OPINION

Finally, "Small keyboard with sounds correct and easy grip"
Its price / quality ratio was correct at the time. The number of function which it is equipped that it has good care and if I had to do it again, I would buy this keyboard again. With many years of use, it has always satisfy me.
The notes given correspond to the notice given in August 2003 compared to use spread over more than 7 years and can not be directly compared to latest keyboards found on the new home market today.
