Sound Quality
With 6 voice polyfony sound evolves like goon analoq and sound are quite good... Nut when you put 2 VCO:s per voice (3 note polufony) this beauty starts to sing. Electronic voices. Good Ambient or anything experimental... I thing everything electronic or electronic rock. Not very good for realistic instruments. You can get quite good flute out of it. Oscillators are extreamly good. Very LIVE! ...filter is an another thing. Really nice for bass. Not very clean or sterile. Very analoq. resonance is quite dirty... Ever dirtier if you overdrive self oskillation (you can turn it over 100% of feedback). very analoque industrial distortion efect. Filter is a little bit "sharp" if you play it upper wight higer tones. With bass this is a beatiful machine but as universal lead syth this is not so perfect anymore. You can edit nice evolving and very anlogue sound on higher notes too, but possibilities are more limited there. Still... Oskillators of this baby are exreamly lively. There is no way that my Matrix 1000 can complete with this in bass sounds... but you cannot get silky eerie saund with thisone no matter how you try... Moaning SQEEEEKS... are hoe ever wery easy to get. Also wery good sible but analogically evolving ambient pads.
Seems to be a solid cube.
