128-note polyphony - 6 effects - full connectivity with AIEB1!
Very good converters, impeccable sound quality at the time!
128MB of RAM, enough for a session, but not for large instruments multilayers.
Features on top at the time, only a Akai or Emu equaled him!

UTILIZATION

Simple Config ergonomics but close to the suicide attempt!
I have never sold so quickly the gear!
Editing is as simple as animating a puppet with son!
Although I am convinced that the puppet, she moves more easily!
Editing effects is if I remember quite simple but what they are bad.
Nothing to do with high-end effects of yamaha, far from those of the EX5 or mixers professional brand!

SOUNDS

This bridge is the only positive ... the sound is excellent, really!
Convertos are very transparent I would say!
But filters are average and not terrible effects!
It's still stupid to have such treatment when you have a perfect sound reproduction!
Sometimes I tell myself that it is really done on purpose!
Sounds available via cd's are really high quality, it has a whole range of sounds of acoustic and electronic instruments.

OVERALL OPINION

I used 3 months, but given the time spent on editing knobs, compared to the time spent in music, I sold quickly! Not without regret so the sound I had more. These knobs are a calamity, a pale copy of EX5, for a screen a bit better defined ...
Basically, it's a big waste of time, unless you want to enjoy the sound quality of the sampler, its 32 multi-timbral parts, and its connections! View the banks!
But forget the effects (except for the lofi) and forget editing, What realize its difficult and laborious use!
It's a shame, because with real knobs, it would still be valid!
