«  Lack of dynamic and minimalist screen »

Publié le 03/10/12 à 07:23
Half-rack with 64MB of sounds. 64-voice polyphonic. Comes with editing software for Mac or PC. 6.35 mm jack stereo outputs and RCA. MIDI in, out, thru. 768 Patches, 17 Rhythm Sets and 64 Performances. Expandable via two SRX.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration is simple but not easy in view of the "screen" (7 segments - three characters). Editing sounds is still very manageable difficilemment because of the screen. Fortunately there is the editing software provided which allows for all settings on your computer screen. And the manual is clear enough.

SOUNDS

The sounds include sounds XV found in the series. What to do, with just under 800 sounds, not counting those of the excellent SRX that can be added. 2 in all.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for 3 years. Its greatest assets: Group XV sounds and two card slots SRX. I bought the XV-5050 later for not buying two times the same hardware and can add SRX I wanted. And compared to the XV-5050, I sold it. Indeed, the dynamics is significantly lower (converters). And the screen is really a parameter prohibitive. We fumbled, just choose a sound. must be in front of the potentiometer. It's annoying in the long run.
The price / quality ratio is insufficient. If you can afford it, invest for the XV-5050, you will not regret. So with the experience I would do that choice.
