Oberheim sound typical, big, broad, powerful. to the brass matrix, it is. factory sounds are typs synth 80's but it is possible to obtain a Ralite trs (trs) wide sonic palette. there are patches in sysex in NG and on the net. More suitable for tablecloths, sound effects and sounds more evolutive trs's percussive sounds, although it is possible with the fm to simulate attacks fairly straightforward. you see the synth sounds of Toto? it's him. no effect.
CHARACTERISTICS: the device is taken in hand soon, the teeth (there are three, one for the patches, two for parameter editing) clear. the right contains the organizational chart from the bowels of the beast which helps a little. for the technique: 6 channels (12 is half a matrix without keyboard), VCO 2, synthse subtractive, FM and modular. 90 VAC (you read), 15 DIFFERENT types of filters (cutoff of 0127, with reso 0 63 63 = oscillations), 5 envelopes, lfo 5, track 5 (mod envelope functions) 4 generations of its ramp, a way to extend the lag modulation up to 1/2h (according to the manual), but can modulate everything with a max of 20 modulation sources (!) by paramtre . pity that the rsonance not only have 63, with 127 it would be better bcp. Memory areas 100 single and multi mode patch, splittage keyboard split into three zones or overlay, and implmentation avelocit noon with aftertouch, polyphonic management following the prophet 5/OB8/Modular4 fashion, something gnial the device sends each manip the corresponding sysex, ideal for squenceurs. no standard type of MIDI CC cutoff and resonance (on silent in 84). 6 outputs an output Stereo audio spares, 6 between CVgate / midi, 2 inputs for external trigger, 2 between pedals. the matrix 12 does not output spares him.
is found from 1400/1500 to okaz on the net but it's pretty hard to find. prices can soar up to 3000 .. If you seek acqurir, 2 / 3 vrifier things: - the self tuning of the analog part must absolutely return "PASS" for all channels: TUNE PAGE / ALL -> 5 times "PASS" should appear on the screen at the bottom. is fundamental **. ** - Mode assignment means "rotate" (a new way to use each note), the sound must be exactly the same ** ** (once the pan in the middle RULES for each channel: MASTER PAGE / PAN -> MID for 6) for all channels. then we can assume that there is no default key. - Versions of software: the most days possible. on mine: Processor: 1.2; voice: 1.6; tape: 1.0 (MASTER PAGE/PAGE2/VERSION) - also vrifier six rotary knobs, the values ​​must s'incrmenter / dcrementer without jumping (the leftmost knob jumps a little on mine if you turn too quickly) a tip: If your display starts to have a blur, the meticulously disassemble, remove the electronics of the front and clean the display gas, and green filters with a cloth and alcohol. everything will be super readable. 2h prvoyez for opration. especially no alcohol on the front, with age the plastic tends to dsagrger. the manual in English can rcuprer on the net, it is didactic trs. This synth is well worth it for synthse crazy, it's been 6 months that I have and I get hardly evaluate the infinite possibilities of the craft. no I do not sell to http://www.soundofmusic.se/synth/xpander/xpander.htm see also links, news Retailer, sounds ... (source of the opinion: macmusic )

UTILIZATION

Configuration gnrale Is it easy? yes
- The edition of sounds and effects is it easy? very simple choices are endless
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

SOUNDS

The sounds they agree your style of music? Yes
- Are they ralistes? Not
- The effects are they effective and responsive? Yes
- The expression is good? (Raction VLOC the aftertouch)?
- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?.

OVERALL OPINION

How do you report qualitprix?
expensive but well worth the number of the oscillator can jopuers at the same t-ime is on the order of a hundred.

Just to make a precision complmentaire's opinion below:
if your owner of the US version trs research with software version 1.0, the test for the autotune not 5 but 4 parameter. So if you have 4 times past, it is ok. IF you do not PASS 5 times, not worth a heart attack, the 5th paramtre Has adding the next software version.

UTILIZATION

See below

SOUNDS

An important precision: the SINE waveform exists for those who have bothered to read the manual. No need to break the sugar on the back of this powerful synth trs reproaching him without SINE waveform. Just enter the value 63 into resonance.
For bass sounds, adchire, possdant a mini, I know what I mean ....

Meets Control Change (4 configurable as we want).
Export sounds / sysex banks (without wanting to do the pub used midiquest it really is up to save its banks).
Modulation matrix free, almost everything is adjustable to a maximum of 20 "cables" per patch.
Modulations to quantization effects of stairs.

A monster without much current equivalent capable of working at home as well with a daw with a setup in cv / gate is rare.

UTILIZATION

The editing panel is excellent, it can be more clear, there is space and to help screen is very well designed.
In the config in itself we feel it is 20 years old, unison is set in the master section. No way back by patch is a bit unfortunate but at the same time the master section is very complete, would stay again.

Too bad there have not mix by waveform 12 as the Matrix, there are just a by tilt.
It's a little beast with a hundred some VAC on board ^ ^

The multiplayer mode is very easy to use but there too small "defects". Unless it's coming from me but I have not been able to drive two different cutoffs in a muti example.

He has little finesse, however, as a patch to compare changes before saving.

For the game master with a keyboard is essential knobs, the knobs of the Xpander is notched and it takes a few rounds to completely close the filter, for example.

Back in the master section:
We might as well decide to play the way 1 2 and 3 in unison noon splitée area as a keyboard track 4 runs with a sequencer cv / gate which is the pitch of the split part 2 keyboard, and finally the third area of ​​split channels 5 and 6 duophonic for a pad or something or other.
It is not clear like that in writing but is configurable keyboard, stereo placement of the vote, the areas of splits, the MIDI I / O or CV / gate, the game mode channel (Rotary, reset, harmony ... etc.).

It can even be chains of presets for live and move forward with the pedal, ooaah!

The principle issue is simple: right section of the shortcut keys that lead to different modules (VCO, VCF, FM / lag processor, envelopes, lfo's ...).
The settings will be displayed on the central screen.
On these screens the central "soft keys" selection buttons settings / values.

Depending on what is selected on the central screen (one parameter or its value) the row of buttons is high or numeric keypad to enter values, is used to select a modulation source.
You first select your destination on one of the central display and one or more sources simultaneously.

Almost everything is modular, imagine the possibilities.
The only thing missing that would be like on my E-MU E6400 can modulate the action of a depth of modulation patching.
Otherwise about E-MU and Xpander: there are strange similarities in the overall operation, it hit me I feel like "home" the day I ' have received.

SOUNDS

Bah I find the sound fairly fantastic because it can make a simple funk bass or web ethereal sound sequence teknoide proficient crossed but always with finesse or potato choice with many filters and VCO sturdy. It has a much broader scope.

The 15 filters are great, top choice, I do not know how to say but the adjective that comes to mind every time is "sweet" sound so sweet because of the resonance typed .... gargoyle that it caramelize, it's pretty and it's good. ^ ^
Unlike other synths here when you push the resonance there is no loss of volume even with the low-pass 24 dB, the sound will become bigger and a little dirty, it's excellent.

He rarely sounds too big, it's easy to make a piece with him where the sound is full and wide and it bavouille not.

In my case I love and I am not at all in the eighties ... Zique pad analog Oberheim brass, Toto, Van Halen and all that ...
It&#39;s not my trip and these old machines waiting to make the breakbeat, the nubreak, dub, drum & bass of the ..... grandpas take out the name name, plus poly-arthritis in their whisked away a second youth lol!

OVERALL OPINION

Pfiou I do not exploit it fully, how I would do it in just one year abroad.

I had some synths analos, will, digital (keyboard G2, NR3, waldorf microwaveXT, Roland SH1, sequential circuits Sixtrak) in the past but this one was my Holy Grail.
I thought unaffordable until the day I came across this very honest German, Dieter thank you to you again. It cost me less than a virus OCCAZ keyboard of a big deal.
I do not sell because I think there is much to do to operate and the sound is the opposite of boring. He died at home I think.

Yes it will eventually die as unfortunately all those famous synth equipped with EMC channel chipsets (if I remember correctly) almost impossible to find.
It&#39;s sad because the Xpander is a fantastic machine noise.

Knock on wood ... the sides of the Xpander want ^ ^
