i have an akai ax73 and i quite like it, its 6 socketed chips in there for 6 voices etc... dont think its a VCO synth but i havent looked that closely. its got a nice sound to it and a quirky filter - its very harsh and flips into fizzy resonance around 38-40 on the slider. not sure how i feel about it, bit of a shame that it flips over so quickly but its still capable of making some nice sounds.
the envelopes are ok on it, editing is fine, unison is great fun
im sure you'll enjoy it!
(hello to anyone who remebers me from a few years ago, nice new site eh)
