Especially the integrated vocoder is a pure delight. The memory is divided into several banks, as is often the case. You click on a tab and a large page appears, with all the details in clear text. Wav in the machine I did a tutorial on this. Watch You-Tube videos all the Roland videos are on You-Tube as well. Same amazingly powerful synthesis engine, minus some of the on-board perfomance controllers like the D-Beams and Trip Pad.
The instrument is a bit expensive these days and saw his spcificit prsence especially on the market for machines like the Alesis Fusion can have standards trs cheap, but Roland has hits hard and delivers a synthetic finish copy the characters unique sound and design ingnieuse. What type of keyboard synth, piano. I did not go looking to buy one, nor had I any intentions of ever buying one. Resampling is also possible, allowing users to capture any performance with the TimeTrip Pad, D Beam or arpeggiator - or even effected sounds - as an entirely new waveform. It is a synthesizer, not a workstation.
Using the TimeTrip Pad, you can scan a clip forwards or backwards with your finger, or change colors using the Twin D Beams. For now, I'm in love. The V-Synth's programmable arpeggiator can modulate sound parameters to provides additional rhythmic and timbral controls. According patches or can go down to 3 or 4 notes. The third oscillator type is External Audio Processing, which lets you process any signal arriving at the V-Synth's analog inputs. In my view, some additional effect parameters assignable controllers such as feedback from a time. Due to the number of machines I have, its polyphony limit does not pose a problem to me but I do not understand why we can fall EmS this synth has never t sold as a workstation.
Also, nice color screen and the ergonomics of the system encourages to go a little further than the simple game preset. This is a minor issue, but it still irks me. The unit reacts very well to my playing. Here we have for each project 512 patches, 869 tones and 999 samples. Abrviations not requiring the use of the manual except for a list of Controller in the edition of the modulation matrix. We then realized that this is a synth sound design destiny be used either in conjunction with other machines, or enrgistrement audio track by track. A totally unique feature perfectly suited for live use.
Nothing prvu for drum kits. It is better to have knowledge of use of synth. The arpgiateur, for him to record in real time or not not. The touch screen makes good editing. The connection is complte, nothing is optional: analog inputs and outputs between a micro dedicates 48V for the vocoder and sampling, and out in numriques coaxial and optical. Editing sounds and effects is it easy? Use the analog or digital inputs to sample your own waveforms to be used in the variable oscillator.
For the rest of the programming of the sounds is good trs. No heavy touch of the keyboard. The edition of modulations may be a little more complte. Choose from over 300 preset waveforms or sample your own. It is possible to play both a patch from a sequencer.
A good edition because no software exists. Roland claims it's due to the unit being rack-mounted and a D-Beam wouldn't be practicle to use. I wonder if the version is no more interesting to use. With all this said, I'm still a little miffed about the absence of the Dual D-Beam. No need to use the navigation buttons: one button, it said. Yes, it's pretty intuitive, but can be a little difficult for a beginner. The other issue I have is with the number of knobs.
Polyphony also can cause concern. Roland is therefore not expect excellence in this field. In fact I wonder if I will not return to the store. The Analog modeling offers several fat-sounding analog style waveforms. Nothing extraordinary here, but this module is nice. Warning it is not possible to play several patches at the same time from a sequencer.
