Light weight workstation for comfortable "everyday" job.

Maximoff, 08.12.2017
This synth was bought for working in cover band. About 3-4 times a week we perform at different events.

After transportating big 88-key full weighted stage piano, that has about 27 kg with case and cables, this synth is almost wonderfull.
Very light, but has looper, pad-sampler, very good synth sounds - very good choice for often job.

Pros:
- Light weight and small size
- Interesting design with luminous logo
- Friendly interface
- Very good synth, pads, drums, strings. And well enough brass and E.Piano.

Cons:
- Piano sound. In truth - it is not Kronos. But for that price do not wait for miracles.
- Non aleophobic front panel
- Very strange system of "Favorites" (shortcuts). When you choice one of favorite programm - you can not change it in realtime. Hope manufacturer will fix it in future updates of the OS.

I played yamaha PSRs, some old KORGs, Roland Juno Di/DS, Kurzweil synths. I can say, that this synth very good one in its class. With all modern features for modern music. Easy and comfortable keys for live performing.

A lot of money, a few constraints

Herbert P., 17.04.2018
The workmanship is good, the three controls are fixed, but the two encoders are very shaky.
The keyboard is of the smoothest sort, similar to the much criticized keyboard of the Nord Lead, apparently one wants to make it a greater distance from the 88 version.

Most of the sounds are good to my taste, some natural instruments are by nature not comparable with VST instruments.
A few synth pads are well-fed with effects very good, the lead sounds editable, which works well.
The synth modulation options are more powerful than the Korg Prologue, which, for example, does not make delayed vibrato possible.

Unfortunately, the Step Sequencer can only play drum sounds, so no Berlin School possible.
In Combi or Sequencer mode, reverb / delay / chorus, etc. (Master Effects) are only possible for all tracks simultaneously, unlike the software sequencers.
I also miss a tone length quantization very much.

Thus, you get a very compact and lightweight all-rounder, if you take the mentioned restrictions into account.
