The T8 has a 6 octave keyboard third (76 keys) FABULOUS.
It is a wooden keyboard, with a simplified piano touch half-heavy, taken elsewhere for Synclavier.
Noon, driving dynamics, relaxation, and mono and polyphonic pressure (only for generating internal pressure poly).

8 analog synth, classical architecture: LFO, 2 VCO, VCF, VCA, 2 Envelopes.

Sequencer 670 notes 8 shares (very useful notepad).
The chassis is therefore not the small box, rather the coffin.
It features an expression pedal to look a piano.

UTILIZATION

It is very easy to use, one button, one function; difficult to get any easier.
The manual is very detailed and complete.

SOUNDS

Then, I'll be honest: I hate the sound of Prophet.
Matter of taste, others love.

It seems the sound of a P600, but with envelopes faster because with him, two microprocessors.
The expression is excellent, with great potential for modulation.

As I have other synths, I am not using the sounds of that.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it in master keyboard, its expressive possibilities via MIDI are significant. Master in keyboard, apart Midiboard Kurzweil, there is no better.

I said, I do not like the sound, I have purchased for the keyboard, and I have not regretted it.

It is expensive, but there has not been much made, and when you see the design of the keyboard, with its keys and hammers wood, it was a delusion and a technical tour de force for the time.
