Laurent0300's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" it sounds good this expander!"

Akai Professional VX90
6 votes, stereo output, taken 3 at noon ...


Although the screen is tiny, editing remains correct.
This sounds so good expander we want to spend some time editing sounds.

Except may be for those accustomed to the "all virtual", with screens of 300 inches!


At a time when all the synths sound almost the same, it is good to have found a few very specific grain in an old nail as the VX90.


its grain so special, I love it!

When I buy an expander where a synth, I want a device that will fit well in my set me in opening new sound horizons.

It all the same to a fatal flaw!
It does not transmit or receive the sysex damage ...........

machina's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" to discover"

Akai Professional VX90
polyphonic synth, analog, noon and stereo (rare) very underestimated and undervalued


super simple, not very practical edition lacks knob, easy to use, however it is not nice shame and lack of access to manual setting, but it's a detail once the stored presets


the filter of this synth really surprising is its main asset, interesting chorus effect, stereo


to be missed for those seeking a polyphonic analog, however, very rare

This is the version of the AX 2U 73:
<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>
The AX73 Was a simple analogue synthesizer based around the Curtis CEM 3394 chips That Were Used in Sequential Circuits SEVERAL synthesisers at the time. Thesis Offered a single chip voltage controlled oscillator (VCO), a voltage controlled, resonant 24dB/octave lowpass filter (VCF) and a Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA) and six of These Were employed to create the six-voice AX73. Because all the true voltage circuitry Used controlled circuitry, this has warmer sound That Gave the digital synths (or the digitally controlled analog synths) of the time.

The AX73 aussi HAD Some unique features Such as totally variable "pulse width" on all waveforms (sawtooth, square and triangle) not just the square wave. It aussi Allowed cross-modulation of the filter by the audio oscillator for a Variety of ring-modulator sounds dangerous. It featured aussi Various dual, and split play modes unison and a single (order Slightly noisy) analog chorus unit to fatten up the sound Even Further.

A 73-note velocity sensitive keyboard Chosen in preference to WAS the 5-octave keyboards unresponsive Used by analogue synths MOST of the time making the AX73 a very competent master keyboard.</span>

6 oscillators per voice
1Midi in / out / thru
1 stereo output
1 sustain pedal
In a sampler
1 Line mono output
1 output Phones
1 tape (in / out) (to save the sounds on K7!)


Gnrale trs simple config (15 pages ...)
One button auto tune to tune VCO and VCF


DMOS few sounds on this site:


It's a good machine with extremely simple ue easy shipping. We hack and there are sounds aisment. The possibility to pair it with one or S9xx intrt S612 increases the machine: you can play the samples through the filters analos.

This sounds trs "Akai" even if the sound is a little more dirty than hab '
100 factory sounds and not otherwise on k7 edition is using ...

The rating is about 300, del is theft. For the price and reliability I would do the same choice.
I think it's an alternative rack of Juno.

The BCAN by a tilt (not six, it would be really a bomb!)
filter a vca, trs simple config.
6 lanes polyfonie like all BCAN the era,
monotimbral (single preset time), and 100 presets on hand


So very easy to program with the knob straight
to give the left and right hand selects
paramtre edit; (1 1 vco vcf vca 1, one can not


The filter is beautiful, the sound can "husky"
desire, his bold trs, trs hot filter!
This expander is part of the park's keyboard sound Bjork!
yes, yet no one was embarrassed when with
you see the look of an old tape deck of the 70s!
is to say how much this is going inaperue fuse
in the world of musik.
I love the sounds of plants, they are kitsch wish, pianos
Farfisa particular type, we must keep them Kelker is inimitable!
the sample & hold is formidable sound of madness.


In complment a set, I make it as attractive
an Oberheim Matrix, a little less critical,
Obviously with sounds much less complex,
but the machine is too big, not VSR ...
not even sensual ...

the important thing is not what k'il's in the box?
