Virtual Analog - emulation of Oberheim OBX / 4Voice, etc..
Keyboard Octave 4 / 49 keys
+ + Pitch modulation ribbon, velocity + aftertouch
Polyphony 12 voices, 4 stamps
4 digital outputs + 1

UTILIZATION

The keyboard is excellent. It is a tool very solid and well built.
Very easy to use (for a synth that is plustot complex) - A button for everything, and a very Grod LCD explains what is happening.
All settings are stored / transmitted via MIDI.
The manual is very poorly translated from Italian.
Technical support (via email) is good.

SOUNDS

Think American rock style Rush. Or Japan or others who have used the Oberheim synthesizers 70 & 80 year end. For me, it sounds rather charateristiques Moog.
The presets are terrible, but are easy to reprogram.
It's a real synthe - not one of those General Midi keyboards that are packed with imitations of instruments.

OVERALL OPINION

I found a nine 777 euros. (Cologne - Germany)

At that price, it can not be up the pole.
