AKAI AX-80 vintage Synthesizer QUICK DEMO, no effects

Published on May 31, 2020 Mindburner

"Some say the AKAI AX-80 is thin and uninspiring. Well maybe some of the presets are but the synth can be dark and moody and powerful with 3 LFO's

This one has the Tauntek OS which improves the use of the filter in that you don't have to re trigger the keys to hear any changes you make. It still steps a bit but I don't mind this at all

For some reason, these synths seem to get treated pretty badly and abused. Broken membranes, bricks dropped on them and cigarette burns galore. This one was save a few years ago. I have just finished calibrating it, which improved the synth greatly.

I like them so much I have 2

Must get an AX-60"
