This is another perfect example of a brand that wants posititionner his instruments on a market price today closed compltement on.
The SE-1 is an analog module mainly complete and ddi-sounding bass and Lead since it is monaural. I said monophonic 1495 USD, making clucking softly. But hey ... It possde output Stereo Main, 300 internal presets that are expandable with extensions not available ROM :-)

UTILIZATION

Simple. Notice all lovers of synthtiseurs Moog analog type (source / memory / 55 / prophet 5) one finds all the joys of the edition with all its inconvnients. The SE-1 benefits from an ergonomic enjoyable which is much more intuitive than all the current machines. Here are the new English SPEC MODELS the SE-1X-You be the judge:
Improvements on SE-1X SE-1 year Theme:

4 ROM Banks (396 locations).
4 RAM Banks (396 locations).
A total of 198 new sounds - includes the dynomite "Lexington G" and "Allec Series" banks.
The stunning "Scroggins Synquence", an electro-styled bank, available for $ 89.00 Additional year.
Creatively expanded Modulation capabilities (future 2nd quarter 2002 rev.).
Greatly enhanced MIDI specs.
3-Syncables MIDI LFOs (future 2nd quarter 2002 rev.).
Tight new look - phatt new logo, sharper, more attractive front and back panel graphics and text.
Flash-ROM Web-updateable Operating Software.
Smoother tweaking and MIDI transmission of front panel pots (switches send info. As well).
External Audio Input.
1 year Parts & Labor warranty coverage.
Custom Graphics available upon request.

In short, more, Much More, of "Caswellz Genius", and the Globally acclaimed programming savvy of Rionero's Sons, virtuoso sonic avengers Those, masters of shadow and the illuminant.

VOICE ARCHITECTURE

Three voltage controlled discrete analog oscillators
Waveforms: triangle, sawtooth and variable width square. All output waveforms simultaneously. Syncing of Osc 2 to Osc 1 & 3.

Two voltage controlled discrete analog filters
24 dB (classic Moog), 12 db (classic Oberheim). 12db low pass filter HAS Incorporates and band pass modes.

Three low frequency oscillators
Waveforms: triangle, sawtooth, reverse sawtooth, square, noise, random. Two destinations and Amounts For Each LFO with delay, key trigger, phase, and MIDI sync.

Four multiple envelope generators internship
Attack, decay, sustain and release with inverting and multiple triggering. Envelope 1 fixed to filter frequency. Envelope 2 fixed to amplifier level. Envelope 3 & 4 are assignable.

Additional Features
Noise generator. Auto triggering external input processor. (Future 2nd quarter 2002 rev.) Parameters: input level, trigger level, mix level, window. Glide and auto glide, linear or exponential. (Future 3rd quarter 2002 rev.) Ring modulation.

Modulation Destinations
LFOs 1,2 & 3: VCOs 1,2 & 3 frequency, VCOs 2 & 3 mix level, ring mod mix level, noise mix level, VCF resonance and frequency, 1,2 & 3 pulse width and volume.
Envelopes 3 & 4: 1,2 & 3 pulse width dynamics, VCOs 2 & 3 mix and sweep oscillator dynamics, ring mod dynamics, noise dynamics, resonance dynamics.

MIDI Controllers
Dynamics, ModWheel, pressure, tracking (future 2nd quarter 2002 rev.) And breath control, EACH with 2 destinations and Amount, Including all LFO and envelope 3 destinations, eg, VCOs 2 & 3 oscillator sweep dynamics (future 2nd quarter 2002 rev.). As I, MSR, write this on 2/12/02, MOST of These "LFO and envelope 3 destinations" are connected and Willing. Here's the Dealy: That in future aforementioned quarter, this piece Will Effectively rock the Omega Series Synths Controller / Modulation Scheme. Bender: pitch and filter frequency. Fixed continuous controller assignments for all key front panel controls. Additionally Receives: program change, bank select, glide on / off, glide time, volume, and Obviously, SYSEX.

MIDI Specifications
In Out and Through.

SOUNDS

Cot's is Correct. I would go up well. Now even if we compare the price of the module, we also move towards a Intrets SuperNII Nord Lead 2 or even a virus associated with a K FM sound module type FS-1 or TX at Yamaha.

Admittedly, the SE-1 possde this heat, I'll go up to say the sound color that caractrise vritables Analog Devices years 80-90. Be converters madness is good but when they do make the difference.
TOP: filters and LFO without them ..... oouf!

OVERALL OPINION

I dtest by DEFINITIONS take a bad picture of a machine yet possde features and sound CHARACTERISTICS intrinsques INTERESTED trs. But please Mr. Studio Electronics, lower your prices. The analogy is more than one price, the analogy either.
