Gnrale configuration might seem a bit complex, but in view of the multiple functions of the instrument, it is generally pretty convenient and intuitive
The edition of sounds and effects, from the time when we have understood the principle of operation and synth trs is clear and efficient.
(It is complicated a little song and pattern mode but with a little experience, everything flows from all sources)
It is evident that this keyboard is not for beginners, a good knowledge of the keyboard is almost essential to tackle such a monster

The only default: the record .... I put 9 / 10 because of this, but when it comes out even in spite of this manual at least ratbr />
You will report page by page constantly and you will see that the order of particular steps of learning is complete anarchy ... good luck


It sounds very simple, mind-blowing!!
An incredible ism, for me the top
The instrument strings are down, acoustic guitars and basses
Very good violins, tablecloths, fx, excellent battery kits ... in short a real joy!
Unquestionably one of the keyboards with the best sound range (both the quality as the number, stunning!)
The mods in real time are also very Russian electro lovers

The effects are perfect ... Do not trust what you see in the performance of the keyboard, it's not just the chorus and reverbs!
But fiddling with effects like the ring mod, rotary speaker, flanger, phazer, distortion, delay tempo ... and many other effects masters + + equa ... There's something to do!

There's no picture to the sounds and effects, it's 10 out of 10


In conclusion, this keyboard is a gem
With the sequencer sampler Intgr very powerful, it's really a very pro workstation

The only problem (by setting the record), get ready to buy a lot of options still needed.
The keyboard provided free RAM (SDRAM DIMM 100/133) can not sample without the addition of two bars ... it will be necessary to hand in wallet
Without pripherique USB storage you can not save your twelve o'clock Creations

But this is nothing compared to the happiness that comes from such a machine

A wonder

Run a try, I can not recommend a choice
