With over 1200 voices, comprehensive controls, a sequencer, a raft of effects and a 61-key, semi-weighted keyboard, this synth is a very versatile addition to both the studio and the stage. This is also a very portable workstation, at 50% lighter than its comparable previous model it will make life much easier carrying it around to rehearsals or gigs. The keyboard is able to produce a range of sounds from vintage analog to modern digital synthesizers, and the Virtual Circuitry Modeling effects mimic original analog circuitry of old to get those classic tones. Included is a bundle of software such as Cubase AI, Prologue and Yamaha’s “Clonewheel” organ emulation. Combined with the USB interface functionality, you can record four tracks, including two analog inputs for vocals and or guitar, turning the synth into much more than just a keyboard.
