    I notice in the manual (page E-32), that there are two different waveforms for the drawbar organ: Sine and Vintage.
    Anybody compare these?


    I noticed that in edit mode and heard zero difference between the two. Just tried it again to verify and still hear no difference.

      I wonder if it's to do with the tuning?

        Well I went back once again to see if I could tell a difference and there is, but it is BARELY audible. When going from SIN to VIN it is very much like adding the smallest amount of the 2' drawbar. But again, the difference is so minute.

          It controls "drawbar leakage"

            That makes sense. It's very subtle.

                Hope they include a roll of paper towels in the XW-P1 box to mop up the mess.

                  Anybody else bought one of these?

                  I have been combing the interweb for user reviews, but they are really sparse.

                        • Someone, somewhere, must have figured out how many synths are bought and never leave the buyer's home. How many keyboard buyers are actually gigging musicians? 10%? Less?

                          Anyhow, there's obviously money to be had in building inexpensive keyboards with lots of great sounds inside plastic boxes. Korg Micro X, Korg M50, Yamaha MM6, MO6, MOX; current Roland Junos, etc.

                          Ironically, many of these boards are marketed for live use, given how lightweight they are. And the fact is, I just don't see many accounts (if any) of musicians using these lightweight synths and breaking them during gigs.

                          Honestly, I think my MOX6 would fare better than my TI Polar (which weighs a ton and is built like the proverbial tank) if both were to fall three feet off of a stand.

                          • Agreed, apart from him being great on any gear, it is slightly harder to show of than the P and he did a great job. I guess as some new users get better we will so more demo's...

                            There are more vids of various artists using it at events which are OK, but this chap did show it off better. Sadly not for me... but nice to know afordable stuff is here...
