UTILIZATION

Everything is srigraphi: there is an array of versatile left-notch, the modal switches under the screen, finally notched a wheel and other switches on the right.
The shipping is fast if it goes through the shortcuts and knobs on the left are the minimum synthse subtractive type.
If we enter the menus, one falls into many powerful opportunities. Then the imagination that takes the control ...
The manual is large trs, Retailer and pdagogique.

SOUNDS

This is oriented electro synth. Many wave forms such as "hit" in tmoignent. In contrast, the waveform loops are an excellent starting point for everything we want. But nothing that is imitative or pseudo noise. No way.
Personally, I use the XK6 in a pop-rock band / rock fm the middle of a diverse and varied set (DXII, Station A, M3R, MPC ...). It enriches the palette of sounds well and passes can not be better in the mix. This synth is really used for anything other than that which he does destiny. With work and imagination, it produces good leads and trs trs beautiful pads, warm, powerful or LGERS and Arians: Zplane filters are for many.
The momentum is remarkable, it is the same harness ...
As with any synthesis of research and an ide clear that we want to make a good instrument trs. The controls and menus are enough to get a quick rsultat.
Live, better will integrate all of the same set in a gr squenceur, even what to call the many sounds with messages bank / program change. However, it may be a good keyboard matre in multiplayer mode.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it recently: I just acqurir on Ebay. But I'm used to romplers amliors and synths of all kinds over the past twenty years. EMU does not fail with this reputable his MODEL.
Some waves are redundant and appear "cheap" at first. Other foundations are stable and rich in harmonics. Even in some limited signals prdilection the crushing that you can do will give you a personal rsultat trs. As always, just get started.

This is a "real" synthtiseur, cheap and well made.
I plan not only to preserve it, but to add the extensions Pipelines Limited.
