Two 6W amplifiers drive the high-definition bass reflex speakers for a clear, detailed sound.
With the assignable Live Control Knobs, you can adjust your sound quickly - just like an analog synth. 10 DSP effects can also be assigned and adjusted by the knobs to tweak the dynamics and pitch. Using the Pitch Bend wheel bring voices such as guitars and saxophones to life. The arpeggio function now offers smoother playability. By making use of the Hold Mode and the allocated key-range you are free to focus on improvisation. The included 150 arpeggio patterns evolve dependant on what you play for ultimate freedom.
The USB to HOST terminal gives you the opportunity to record to a smart device or computer. By connecting to an external audio player via the AUX-In jack, play along with your favourite songs.

Recording to a USB flash drive couldn't be any easier as you can load or save any settings as well as transfer information to your PC.
