- Configuring / editing enough "sport" we say, but I love it when synths and work the brain, not as tiring as programming a sequence of one or tb 303 mc 202 ..

- The interface is damn good, we keep a finger on the same series of button for quick access to a function, although they are very numerous. It's almost annoying sometimes but still nice overall.

- There is an online copy of the original manual that has been scanned, and French, it may render services, but I do not consult, after having built the architecture of the unit ca becomes more fluid.


The sounds are typical of an era, as you imagine, especially since it is sample playback oscillators. Although the possibility of stacking, tweak, modulation is huge, it is easily identifiable. His drums kits (4) are listening, personal, I pass in a disto .. Besides, I love this machine, easily recognize pianos / keyboards used in most standard House for the first time (and sampled 1000 times since), sounds to Depeche Mode ...

The effects section is full and varied, but very effective 80/90 also ...


You'll understand this synth is very very strong, sonically speaking, and its purchase should be a deliberate act (apart collectors) as it corresponds to a time and so it is far from classic analog synthesizers, VA or otherwise. It will make things a lot will not and will not do the basic thing of any basic analog.

EC synth was very widely used for larger pieces and House Detroit House for the first time, are his keyboards and piano are very sought after. There is also a module Korg (P3) that includes only the piano and keyboard M1/M1r/ex M1r


We had the M1 in 92/93 and I bought a exM1r to 40 euros, at this price, yes, I remake this choice!
