UTILIZATION

Buttons used to access each part of the synthse:

SINGLE-for groups of sounds, used tools synthses analog modular ...

-MULTI is a new mode in synthse Akai it seems simple but I 've not yet used as the first is clear and simple (Vas me I have to put a C4!).

-SAMPLE to sample! and cut, etc. etc. you know the drill.

EFFECT-Do I really explain?!

GLOBAL-rglages

EDIT-Ben edit the first four that we saw.
-LOAD
-SAVE

Simple operation, the only thing that Drout is the possibility of the machine, the nophites synthse suffer.

SOUNDS

The converters sound from the 12-bit prdcesseur cold enough.

That the effects are good and choice, you have got the right of use.

The filters are quite powerful 12 dB of numrique one would have expected a little 24 (when it is even possible in the rglant FITRE multimode low-pass using the same cutoff frquence) but ...
a sound, without becoming arson incontrlable provided.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been two weeks that I have, I have had has to complain of one thing there is no clear explanation on how to configure a SCSI zip through what I was asked not evil of hours.

Before this I had an S950 fewer opportunities, less simple, especially for lime rhythm, but hey we move the sample in a good 12-bit decimator and it will be a little closer.

I pay € 370 with 32 MB Ram + drive SCSI Zip100 € 35 for the price should not go without if only for multi-effects. I would do without this choice hsiter is too powerful a machine without tural ambiguity.

The price break OCCAZ n'hsiter mouth if you see - from € 400 5 years ago was worth 20 000 F!
