      Another awesome demo, Rich!

      By the way, does the EP-1 include the SV-1's spring reverb effect? Just curious, because I'm a big fan of that spring twang.

                I love the sound of the phaser - nice and chewy.

                I am still trying to decide between the synth action and the 88 key hammer action, though I am still leaning towards the latter.

                ...Music can be used to stimulate mass emotion, while mathematics cannot; and musical incapacity is recognized (no doubt rightly) as mildly discreditable, whereas most people are so frightened of the name of mathematics that they are ready, quite unaffectedly, to exaggerate their own mathematical stupidity.

                    Same question here.

                    Nice vid of a nice machine, though.

                        Rich: When using the VOX wah pedal effect can you use an expression pedal to play the wah live or are you limited to the "auto-wah" setting and only able to adjust using a slider as in teh video?
                        Just curious. Awesome video BTW. Thanks for what you do and keep them coming!

                          Thanks guys, glad you like it.

                          Citizen Klaus- EP-1 has pre/mod effects from the SV-1, but not the reverb/delay section.

                          Synthbot- You can use one of the pedal effects, but there are also 16 other effect processors you can use simultaneously. The pedal effects here are unique because they're part of the synth engine.

                          midinut- You can set it to sweep automatically, or based on a controller (such as an expression pedal).

                            Hey Rich
                            Hitting "play" does not constitute live performance.
                            The DX7 is to keyboards what Coldplay is to rock.
