This instrument was used to make some heavy hitting albums of the past, and you will find all of it's power and nuance still intact. The step sequencer is very easy to use and gives you instant readout of the notes played per step so you can keep track. There is also a cool screen where you can see a depiction of each waveform as you alter it. This synth is polyphonic and is capable of playing chords, and having chords on single notes in some of it's functions. All of the knobs allow you to alter parameters of a sine wave allowing for almost countless different effects and sounds!
