TECH VSS system handles sampling process + a bunch of presets on the ROM wavetable.
Monophonic SAMPLING process is based on a YM2416 IC (common on all VSS series) + DRAM at 8 bits resolution.
Sample edit The sampled sound can be edited with 5 basic functions:
- loop mode
- reverse sample
- uturn: alternates forward + backward
- overwrite: sound on sound, bu it quickly saturate
- voice editor (see "VOICE EDITOR" below)
VOICE EDITOR 4 internal sound effects, quite surprising for such a "toy":
- ECHO is a kind of delay, not really a DSP effect but a kind of envelope trick with 15 preset settings.
- FUZZ adds a simple fuzzed effect No control on fuzz.
- MODULATION is a simple modualtion LFO on pitch - 8 presets fixed rates
- AMPLITUDE MODULATION is another LFO but on EG vibrato
(note: AM modulation shares same LFO rate as FM frequency modulation)
11 internal preset sounds with no possible edit, however they can be arpeggiated or processed by various amplitude or modulation functions.
PRESET LIST: piano, vibes, strings, clarinet, harpsichord, marimba, jazz organ, galaxy, banjo, crystal and brass.
very simple MUSIC PROGRAMMER offers a maximum of 500 notes recorded in real-time (also chords) at 1/48 resolution. No other special functions.
1 EG 4 segments ADSR control for sample amplitude: just choose the segment and change to one of the 8 stepped values tapping the increase/decrease buttons.
- now pricey
- toy cult status
It is bigger than vss30 and handles 4 parts. 1 single channel for sampling but no more interesting effects. My less favourite.
biggest of the series 49 keys, and 2 seconds of sampling and 9 effects. Special internal resample mode.
