Value For Money : Correct
Synth 4. octaves, 4 virtual analog parts
pitch (original but functional) Modulation assignable pedal (great and indispensable if we do not want to play that with one hand)
midi in / out (missing through) 4 sories sustain pedal and analog modulation
99 prog base extension on PCMCIA card (no floppy drives, zip or USB .... shame!)
polyphonic 10 channels (just a little)
But lots of extras filters, with two oscillators, two LFO etc ... well supplied with all pots (it's like really analog)


If we used a synth so, otherwise it's a synth .... have to learn.
Yes, while potentiometers
A fair bit, especially for MIDI


A gogo techno sounds to me was the best at the time
It has fishing, careful speakers especially in the bass, big sound.
Effects: there is none, if you want to add in the plan is behind a multi-effects (reverb, delay etc ...) and off ......
The touch keyboard is okay.
Sounds very typical, we like it or not is a matter of taste. But the editing possibilities are enormous, he's great live!


I have one for 3 years and I still discovered every day ... not about to part with it.
Only drawback: extension of its banks only on PCMCIA cards, otherwise, we must work with the South. A small floppy disk, zip, or better to host or USB would have been welcome.
Value for money: correct
I have many others: korg, roland etc ... but this one is the only pseudo analog and it is very typical.
I trade it well ..... against a nordlead3 but not another.
