Superb synthe manufacturing Germanic, robust and a fabulous blue, with a Petic ct vintage moog type the trim, juno on the flanks.
- Cot keyboard - great velocity and aftertouch
Cot-controllers - Pitch 3 wheels, assignable modulation and a third filter, susytain ....
Classic Connection - midi in-out-thru, audio left and right stereo-mono, and foot sw, German what ...
sound - 512 sounds and 100 performances a library of all editable effects, a veritable killing for fans of John's MI and Vangelis, Depeche Mode ... short a wealth of analog.
To my editor connasssance not PC, as the bte is 96 'has less transit a lover, I do not think we will see a one of these days ....
64 voice polyphony, what more ... on some ground they are useful trs.

UTILIZATION

General Congiguation simple: very simple, it's a synth for children under 2 years old, beginners dals synthesis, you imagine, you rules, you listen, you pee happiness.
You click on edit, you're walking from page to page, one after the other to cut the sound, and voila ... You recommend the second OSC, you add an effect, an ARP, and here a performance of Death, in short the synth for Dummies publishing.
The manual is simple and complete and is available in french on the net.

SOUNDS

Style of music is hurting the bottom, it is very specific, sometimes 80's, but I did often Dance Rock with a prod, just dpend on what you want to do, it is very difficult Able and goes everywhere.
Do not expect a moog or a virus, it is between a 106 or a JD800 Jono for tablecloths and strings and a mini moog or a supernova for the low, the sound is round and pais, low sound and ground transports, leads to the lovers of Van Hallen or A-Ha to recognize is specially not his strong point.
It is very atmofpheric transandentale and I understand by it have not yet t meet the rank of the divine of the water ....

OVERALL OPINION

I look, I'm dreaming, I find .... two years it will take place on the top of my stand, my gods, it is beautiful ...
I do not use it every day but every time it is a joy.
What I like most is the sound, atypyque and password everywhere, always in the Submitted prod's.
What I like least his drum kit, and a lack of effect of a more basic Arpegio
I have a thirty analog creatures, including a Moog aniversary, a 106, and even a JD800 and a MicroKorg Doepfer, so I can compare it and its place in my stands, it does resemble is nothing to otherwise, it looks like we've put in all the good old 80's synth.
Qualitprix, blah rarely so expensive but are found on the net + / - 500, there are plenty of site for sounds and info
If I had the choice the era I would buy new, it's a collector, it is now in the production of high retouve Dance style 80's revival ... Eryc Pryds, Justin Timberlake and is in the parking Robby Williams Tower, a real go anywhere this one.
