    + analog sequencer keyboard ....
    nicknamed "the bag" is a portable VCS 3 ...
    Synthtiseur collection of only 200 t were produced ... It possde 3 oscillators (OSC1: sin, square) (OSC2: square, triangle) OSC3 (it is a sub tilt frequency sawtooth and square). Obviously it possde rsons filter, a high pass cut down output, and a cut above the low pass output. It possde a system that envelope a bit unusual trapezoid with a mini spring reverb (INTERESTED) and essentially its ring modulator ... that we know mainly for its unique grain, used in music normment concrte .. It possde CONTRL a joystick, two line inputs, two mic inputs, two outputs plus two controls output .. ultimately, it possde Furthermore, a noise of gnrateur INTERESTED trs and first and foremost ... MATRIX connections .. this little gem is completely modular ... each element of claiver can CONTRL another ....
    The novice may be surprised to dpart from ergonomics and the matrix of connections ... but it's exciting to discovering the prototype of the history of synths and understand the connections between diffrent lments ...

    UTILIZATION

    A logic and will integrate APRS you can make sounds trs complexes within seconds .. having had the chance to have the manual (should have kept a copy on line, you can sk me the way), I quickly understood the Systm matrix .. for the habitus of modular synths, no surprise, VCO, filter, envelope, output .. typically found the way to gnse sound .. temperatures requiring this much diffrencier signals CONTRL voltage audio signals etc ... short, time to adapt and APRS is pleasant, fun, inventive and hyper edition allows a single big sound crazy ... I'm totally a fan of this small matrix ... to confess, I t's because I thought it would be harder to understand !!!!!! simply gnial and ergonomic!

    SOUNDS

    ... Big synthse subtractive .... the small n in 1972 is a bubbling synthse .. thousand times more powerful than the minimoog, the Systm patch allows millions of combinations .. heat and power of sound is unique, the instability of oscillators provide the charm on keyboards ... I generally use the aks audio sources to deal with (the prampli is wonderful even if it blows through !!!!) filters, oscilloscope and especially ring mod and a lot of the synth to CRER parliaments ryhtmiques powerful, super groovy, and volumes continuously ... trs beautiful sounds of psychs are ditables, the fx, basses monos of death, or 3 leads oscilloscope ... the possibilities are wide trs .. grain can be hard if not totally hyper industrial ... the highs are Scaille, impressive, almost audible sounds UTRA, infrastructure can be controlled with pany !!!!!
    Both say without dwelling THIS IS NOT A GAS PLANT THERMO NUCLEAR POWER PLANT BUT .... To give you an example, the only synth Submitted on DARK SIDE OF THE MOON is the AKS!! rcouter the album and you hear the sound .. You can Listen to the album "RUOK" Meat Beat Manifesto produuit only with the large EMS Synthi 100 (very close to the AKS, quasi indented) .. The EMS team as more proccupe Whereas by artistic avant-garde, and Aesthetics of an atonal and microtonal composition, the comfort of the player silent
    anecdotal. The AKS silent destiny to express sound sculptors, explorers IWe spectra, and other composers concrte, plutt as "keyboard-heroes." Forcment, the sound .... it is an appointment !!!!!!!!
    Users of madmen AKS:
    Daniel Miller (Mute Records boss: Depeche Mode, Neubauten, Nick Cave, Vince Clarke ...)
    Brian Eno (note the synthesis of HEROES with Bowie)
    Pink Floyd
    Chemical Brothers (Dig Your Own Hole! Y'en it everywhere)
    Stereolab
    Yes
    Depeche Mode
    Aphex Twin
    Autechre
    Jean-Michel Jarre
    Astral Projection
    Vince Clarke
    The Who
    Todd Rundgren
    Recoil (Alan Wilder of Depeche Mode)
    Freddy Fresh

    and me too .... !

    OVERALL OPINION

    Following what I have described, not boast about how a thousand times the MRIT this machine I'm in love ... I had two keyboards (with the double matrix) and I have a spare now that I do not because the love story is too long and painful with my AKS ... t was the first in Japan to rev brok expensive (5000 euros) I confess that I would not consider me unless I prfr Spare to the keep in my studio ... but alas, unfortunately, the existence and Ralite make it impossible to keep everything ... This synth is a UFO, I know nothing of equivalent ... I do not believe to be the only synth because it is the bedside of many artists ... Brian Eno, Pink Floyd (R. Waters) ... Previous or point ...

    UTILIZATION

    It's so easy that the manual patch is completely useless.
    All modules are fully assignable and can be used via the patch matrix out of the modules on the left and in the top. So gymnastics is: I took my osc 1 on the left, I send it in the filter that I rcupre on the right towards the envelope (and about and do vca a) I takes on the left and the branch in the output. It is now that Poile, I located the triangular signal from the left and I OSC3 sending CONTRL osc1 the filter and then I made the same with 2 osc will CONTRL on 3, and why not do a loop by taking on the osc osc 1 2 ... and yay! ETS is just turning our beautiful knobs, the machine starts howling like an old wolf of the steps!

    SOUNDS

    Sounds ideal sound research, so either the exprimentales or for lanscapes or it must sampler.
    Sounds anything but and that's a ralistes we love this synth is a wild bte ... it's true to the sound of nature, type of insects that rpondent is nickel!
    This synth Ragit like clockwork (sauvage!), but is totally unstable (grooaar!)
    Sounds obtained with the RingMod and reverb are beautiful, but what I prfre is when it surprises me!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 8 or 9, I love its wildness and nothing I pnible with this machine since it is always a pleasure repatcher!
    I think the current rating is largely false survalue because it is incontrlable, I can explain in the CONTRL noon, but Mr. walking 1/3V / October which does not .
    But if I see one, I jump on it!
