If Ikutaro Kakehashi named his company with this typical European name, it wasn't to honor the famous traditional song of heroic deeds. Since its inception the company has been committed to export, and the first goal of its founder was to find a name that was easy to spell and original enough to attract attention.
I just pruchased one of these. I like it alot. What I am not clear about however is the SHAPE button. Does the SHAPE button have to be on in order for the presets to work or for the EQ controls to work??
