||Samples ("PCM", Pulse Code Modulation), 340 internal waves
unlimited number with PCM card, subtractive. (What's ai² ?)
||A "program" (patch) is composed of 1 or 2 PCM elements.
||?? bits; 44.1 kHz(?); internal ??
bit processing; ?? bit DACs
||61 keys, velocity sensitive,
mono AT, light action.
many of which are the loop portion of the complete samples.
128 + 8 drum sets in ROM, 200 + 4 drum sets in RAM,
200 + 4 drum sets on RAM card

200 on RAM card
||32 PCM generators.
In program mode : 32 notes for single
oscillator program ;
16 notes for dual oscillator program.
||priority to last note, dynamic voice allocation.
A program can be polyphonic, monophonic or drum kit.
Monophonic mode does not have portamento.
||time-variant ; 1 LPF ?? dB/octave per oscillator
||One pitch LFO, one amplitude LFO
and one filter LFO for each oscillator.
||Attack time, attack level, decay time, break point, slope
sustain level, release time for amplitude and filter
of each of 2 PCM oscillators
Start level, attack time, attack level, decay time,
release level for pitch (shared by the 2 oscillators with
Envelopes can be controlled by velocity and keyboard tracking.
||?? samples. One General MIDI compatible ROM kit,
seven alternative ROM kits
four programmable RAM kits.
||2 stereo programmable effect processors
47 types of effects assignable for each. Real-time controllable.
1 type of serial and 3 types of parallel routings.

punch-in, loop; records on one or many tracks/channels at
a time; event edit; control change generator; real-time or
track/measure quantization (the latter selectable by event and
with strength and offset parameters).
||1/48th or 1/96th of a quarter note. More time signatures with 1/48 resolution.

|| Very good sequencer.
Very good effect processors.
Good synth-action keyboard.
