LFO each partial features a single syncable delayed modulator (shapes: sine triangle, sawtooth up, sawtooth down, square, random, bend up, bend down).
Modulation destinations are:
A- LFO to amplitude
B- LFO to filter cutoff
C- LFO to sample pitch
RESAMPLING 2 samples can be combined in 6 algorithms or structures same found on synthesizer module JD-990. These are pre-fixed audio patches that connect 2 samples into variable setups mixed with 3 audio elements: amplifier (TVA), filter (TVF) and ringmodulation (R)
SEQUENCER the RPS sequencer (Realtime Phrase Sequencer) features 8 tracks. The RPS is like a litte notepad for idea on the fly, since it does not contains edit functions like sync, quantisizer nor even a simple metronome! not the best.
MEMORY sampling 2 Mbytes factory expandable to 4 Mb using standard 30 pins SIMMS (1 mega each) for 512 samples
+ 255 partials + 64 performances. Special MEMORY WALL setting allows to split memory for LOAD-WHILE-PLAYING option.
