The edition of the machine and very simple. Only the range of modulations requires reflection (many routing). It is also possible to work in polyphonic or monophonic modulation (sound delirious!)
The ergonomics and superb, this is not very difficult to lose.


RSF is the sound, analog, warm and beautiful.
There must have been, normally, the Velocity and Aftertouch on the machine! bin and it never worked (at least on mine nada !!!).


Objective is the machine! Despite all these very big problem, I likes a lot. Well, aftertouch and velocity does not work, the polysequenceur also kidding (I rarely see him walk)! . At the time Serge Fernandez had said that to solve this problem ... and non-ben!
Another problem is the fragility of these cards (the hell). If you find one, I advise you to never moved. I used a lot for a complex sound. His little brother Kobol (keyboard) also a great place in my studio.
There are two machines-the world that are truly excellent: the Polykobol and Memorymoog (meeting of two machines that only have galleys)
