"Possibly one of the best polyphonic synthesizer in the modern era...maybe ever! Combining elements of digital and analog in all the right places gives you an outstanding amount of control over your sound shaping abilities.

OSCILLATORS
Five DSP-based oscillators per voice (including one sine wave sub oscillator)
Four classic wave shapes (saw, square, triangle, sine) per oscillator
Twelve selectable complex shapes per oscillatorThree noise types per oscillator: white, pink, violet
Analog VCAs
Shape modulation
Oscillator cross modulation: frequency modulation (FM) and amplitude modulation (AM)
DX-style linear FM
Hard sync on each of the four oscillators

CHARACTER EFFECTS
Five high-quality digital effects. Thicken the signal and add harmonics or completely destroy the signal pre-filter.
Girth and Air are high and low shelf equalizers with harmonic excitement. Useful for thickening and/or adding air to the signal.
Hack and Decimate are sample and bit rate reduction algorithms which can add subtle grit or completely destroy the signal. It’s harsh yet musical!
Drive is a soft saturator for adding soft distortion and harmonic content to the signal

FILTERS
Famed Curtis 2- or 4-pole resonant analog low-pass filter (self oscillates in 4-pole mode) per voice
2-pole resonant analog high-pass filter per voice
FEEDBACK AND DELAY
Tuned feedback
Four-tap syncable multi delay with feedback and amount per delay per voice

ENVELOPES
Four Delay + ADSR envelopes (LPF, VCA , and two Auxiliary envelopes)
Auxiliary envelopes 3 and 4 freely assignable to multiple modulation destinations
All envelopes can repeat/loop

LFOS
Four syncable LFO’s with phase offset and slew per LFO

MODULATION
16 x 2 modulation matrix with 26 mod sources and 100 mod destinations
Modulation assignment buttons enable quick and easy modulation routing

ARPEGGIATOR
Sophisticated programmable arpeggiator with up, down, up+down, random, assign modes
Arpeggios are editable and saveable
Re-latching arpeggiator
MIDI note output

PROGRAMMABLE DISTORTION
Independent programmable stereo analog distortion per layer.

CONTROLS
More than 50 knobs and 50 buttons enable deep and comprehensive editing with little to no menu diving.
Backlit pitch and mod wheels are easily visible in low light situations and have a smooth yet precise feel and response.
Independently adjustable upper and lower pitch wheel range.
Two assignable position- and pressure-sensitive latchable touch sliders for enhanced interactivity and control.
Full-sized, 5-Octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch

MEMORY
396 user and 396 factory programs
Direct program access using numeric keypad and dedicated User, Factory, and Bank buttons
Playlist mode for generating easily accessible setlists of your favorite programs. Create four play lists with up to forty programs each!

IN/OUT
1 MIDI In, 1 MIDI out, and 1 MIDI Thru port
USB port for bidirectional MIDI communication
1 Sustain/footswitch input
2 expression pedal inputs
Main stereo output (2 x 1/4″ phone jack)
Layer B stereo output (2 x 1/4″ phone jack)
Headphone out (stereo 1/4″ phone jack)"
