UTILIZATION

The panel is CONTRL Detachable (RESOLUTION catch 320 * 240) so I can minstaller cushy in my chair to set the bte, what happiness! The interface is super intuitive graphics and the handling is IMMEDIATE. Ldition samples, programs, menus, functions are quick and easy. LOS is stable, but without the typical Windows bugs. Cest the sampler as simple users who have given t in May to see.

SOUNDS

The converters are neutral and the sound is crystalline prcis and powerful. APRS sampling, the sound becomes more dynamic rendering is excellent especially on the acoustic sounds dinstruments. All that is gaining percussion punch.

The card EB-20 is effective for apprciable dlais effects and reverbs (use small doses because the rendering is quite mtallique ...), modulation type spatial flanger, chorus, are quality mdiocre. In lensemble, the effects make service provided to use it wisely.

OVERALL OPINION

I chose the sampler for its openness to the world PC (USB card / format native DOS / Wav) and his panel Detachable CONTRL is infinitely practical, but also for its CHARACTERISTICS (16 outputs, 128 voice polyphony, 32 multitimbral channels and memory capacity). Programming options fit me well, they are standards ... The multimode and organization of keygroups are flexible and powerful modulation matrix is ​​Designed and MIDI timing is the road well on large squence. The 26 filters are effective and rsons cratifs although they are not as good as Dému, but instead sounds good knock it right. In short, cest of lartillerie heavy!
