The matrix allows for the Oberheim sound. While this is not a obx-a but it comes close, the sound color is the same.
The ideal is to have access programer to work otherwise it sounds tedious. Editing is very comprehensive opportunities out sounds fat and thick really give an interest in this synth.
The sounds are not realistic, it is not the purpose of the machine. Its strength lies in the sounds typical Oberheim style "jump" of course, pad, toto style brass, strings very soft.
In addition to this bizarre effects, fuzz etc.
The bass is very analog I left sounds crazy at this level. It is very round, very soft. The bass sounds sharp and dry is not a priority or even a little soft.
Coupled with a multi effects ensoniq DP4 style is the foot.
I, I keep it. I also have a 1000 matrix, and I cover the whole range of his Oberheim.
In his alter ego could actually be the roland JX8P with a very soft and round while being different.
