Farfisa Matador MRPublished on 02/04/13 at 02:49
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
What type of keyboard (synth, piano ...)? How many octaves?
Soft keyboard, vintage, 3 + octaves lower.

What controllers (pitch, modulation, sustain ...)?
None directly on the dashboard but two or three taken to the pedals (I did not, so I will not talk about).

What connection (Audio, MIDI, pedals ...)?
Two line outputs / headphone jack, mono it seems.

How many sounds effects? What styles?
As much as you want but there is no memory in the sense "snapshot" modern. Effect "vibrato" and that's all.
No editing on PC / MAC / Amiga / Atari or even ORIC is the basic and the computers of the time standing in 30m ² at least at the time.

No editing on PC / MAC / Amiga / Atari or even ORIC is the basic and the computers of the time standing in 30m ² at least at the time.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is it simple?
Yes, it is difficult to make easier to hand, can be a triangle?

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
Yes.

The manual is clear and sufficient?
I do not have the manual. But I do not miss it, except for the whole "collection".

SOUNDS

Sounds they agree your style of music?
Oh yeah, it is!
This is typically the organ sounds cheezy Italian / cheap 70s. Love it or hate it. Not the sound of an organ "overpriced vintage thing", but a good grain and soft enough hovering.

Are they realistic?
Yes, except for the sounds of the drum machine (presets) integrated. But it's kitsch to death.

The expression is good? (Response to velocity, aftertouch to)?
Yes, if we consider that the velocity and aftertouch are absent.

The effects are they effective and responsive?
Yes, like vibrato vibrato.

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
When you love the grain of the old cuckoo all sounds it produces are worth.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you been using?
Few months.

Did you try many other models before buying it?
This is my first Italian organ of this type therefore difficult to compare.
on the other hand I have had a lot of synth sounds "organ" of samples, VST, etc ... and I prefer the old grandpa and his face "old school".

What is so special that you like most and least?
I like his visage, he has a really good mouth.
I like it fate, soft grain and unpretentious, which goes very well with effects (I use a Pod X3 Pro + Korg Kaoss Pad 2 just for him, and the memories of Pod this is a killer, see mona screws on the Pod X3 Pro).

How do you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice?
It is a gift, but I know its rating used and it is really nice for a "contraption" less than 100 euros. So I really want to buy one or two others in the same genre, but lack of space ...
