    SPECIAL FEATURES

    • Morph: One or more continuous (knob-type) parameters can be controlled by keyboard velocity and/or the Modulation Wheel/Control Pedal.
    • Impulse Morphs: Both continuous (knobs) and switch parameters can have alternate value settings activated by Impulse Morph buttons. 7 unique Impulse Morphs possible by pressing a combination of the 3 buttons.
    • Master Clock: The LFO rates, Arpeggio rate and Delay time can be synchronized to an internal or external (via MIDI) clock, with selectable rhythmic divisions.
    • Mutator: Automatic program generator with adjustable style and strength.

    GENERAL FEATURES

    • 49-key octave velocity sensitive keyboard (keyboard version only) with octave shift buttons, +/-2 octaves.
    • 3 momentary Impulse Morph Buttons, 7 combinations.
    • Keyboard Split with 2 slots for the upper and lower sections.
    • Modulation Wheel (keyboard version only).
    • Pitch Stick with no dead zone at zero crossing (keyboard version only).
    • Programmable Pitch bend range, up to +/- 4 octaves
    • Separate up/down bend range: -12 or -24 semitones, + 2 semitones
    • 1 pedal input for sustain.
    • 1 pedal input for expression pedal.

    USER INTERFACE

    • 3 character LED display, 29 knobs and 20+ buttons for program and performance editing.

    OSCILLATOR SECTION

    • OSC 1 generating sine, triangle, sawtooth, fixed and modulateable pulse waveforms and 128 wavetables.
    • OSC 2 generating triangle, sawtooth or fixed and modulateable pulse waveforms or noise.
    • OSC MOD section with Hard- and Soft sync plus 3 different Frequency Modulations of OSC 1 from OSC 2.

    FILTER SECTION

    • Multi-mode filter with 12 dB (2-pole) low pass, 24 dB (4-pole) and 48 dB (6 pole) low pass, band pass, high pass, Ladder M and Ladder 303 characteristics.
    • Cut off, Resonance, envelope amount, envelope amount controlled by velocity.
    • ADSR envelope.
    • Filter keyboard tracking can be set to off, 1/3, 2/3 or 1/1.
    • Adjustable Filter Distortion.

    MODULATION SECTION

    • LFO 1 generates a square, triangle or any of 4 different types of saw- and inverted sawtooth waveforms. LFO 1 can be routed to Filter Frequency, Osc Mod, Osc Mix, Osc 2 Pitch, Amplitude and FX section. The modulation amount can be set as positive or negative/inverted. The LFO 1 rate can be synchronized to the Master Clock.
    • The LFO 1 section is used to control the rate, range and directions for the arpeggiator. Arpeggiator: Range: 1 - 4 octave. Modes: up, down, up/down, random, Poly. The Arpeggio rate can be synchronized to the Master Clock.
    • LFO 2 generates a square, a regular and inverted sawtooth, LF filtered noise and random staircase waveforms. LFO 2 can be routed to Filter Frequency, Osc Mod, Osc 1 and/or Osc 2 Pitch, Pan and Pulse width. The modulation amount can be set as positive or negative/inverted. The LFO 2 rate can be synchronized to the Master Clock.
    • Modulation Envelope (Attack, Decay/Release) for Osc Mix, Osc Mod, Osc 1 and/or 2 Pitch, FX section and LFO 2 amount. The modulation amount can be set as positive or negative/inverted. The Modulation Envelope can be manually triggered by the Impulse Morph buttons.
    • Patterns: the cyclic waveforms of the LFOs can be replaced by a pattern behavior. There are 128 different patterns, grouped in 6 different styles.

    AMPLIFIER SECTION

    • ADSR envelope, velocity control on/off, gain control.

    PERFORMANCE SECTION

    • Voice modes: Poly, Legato with portamento, Mono, True Unison 1, 2 & 3.
