Akai VX90

Akai VX90 Image


With an identical voice structure to the AX73, the VX90 is little more than a rack-mount version. It is a MIDI equipped six-voice analog synthesizer with advanced digital controls and functions. Like the AX73 it has an auto-tune function and a really nice VCF lowpass/hipass filter and envelope section. The VX90's memory capacity holds up to 100 patches. It can be played polyphonically or in a stacked unison mode for that thick lead sound for your rave and techno anthems. A really cool feature of the VX90 is that you can plug the Akai S-612, S-900 and S-950 samplers in to it and run their samples through the VX90's analog filter and envelope sections.

This synth is clearly underrated. Not a synth with 1.000.000 routing possibilities and special FX, but it's enough for the most butter & bread stuff (Pop/RnB/Elektro). The handling is oldschool & simple, so it's easy to use. It sounds very alive and "smooth" to my ears and it has it's own unique character. Not "in your face" but "3-dimensional" and always fitting in the mix. It looks a little cheap, but it's definitely on the same level as my Korg Polysix.
