Trs prsentation nice tool. Screen a little small and lightweight lack of visibility can rgler even if the contrast (may be I need glasses!).
MODEL aisment rack. Some buttons are a bit small and the still empty combinations not always remember (like shift + alt + ctrl) but it must be accder the multiple functions of the non bte?
USB port and headphone faade is good. Two expansion cards can be grafted into the abdomen and the list of these cards is consquente although I do not know the quality.
Three MIDI IN OUT THROUGH. Four standard output jack. An S / P DIF optical and coaxial format the rear.
1083 diffrent waveforms corresponding to the instruments.
10 banks of 128 patches (including GM2). 10 rhythm kits constitus groups of four sets 2 Different.
The choice there!

UTILIZATION

Not too complicated to use, it MRIT to consider it a time to exploit all its possibilities.
The edition of the sounds takes time if you do not pass through the software.
The manual is comprehensive and clear enough. Deferrals can link to other pages or other topics and find information fast enough research.
Small error confirms the allocation of numbers to banks G and H in the manual. But we quickly found the solution.

SOUNDS

The sounds are good overall. Ism lacks a little in the brass but it is known that certain instruments be more difficult than others reproduce (or the number of samples is not large enough).
The effects are numerous and effective. Be careful not to put all (the temptation)!
Some layers are in hell and excite the imagination. Piano just faiblote. Ralistes low and few. Guitars (although I am guitar) not bad at all. All this is not real but sounds Obviously instruments will complete without ridiculous poses a model already well on an instrument rel.
The drum kits, as the many, to become INTERESTED ism.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year now but continues to believe that another expander could come complter the sonic palette. Next manufacturers, quality is felt in some chantillonages instruments. Previously operated with a Boss and a Korg, I miss this complementarity. That said, it is superior in quality and m'vite shuffled to multiple MIDI tracks with identical sounds to achieve a more enhanced ism. But ...
The MODEL suprieur me t if the deprecated function Sampling is not actually used full wisely. The Difference in price between the two devices do not parat justified in view of the sound diffrence.
I am still happy with my choice despite the small dtails and convinced that this is not the tool that made the man but his imagination to get the most out of the machine. To do this ... as for the good cif ... it takes time.
