ABOUT This is a special Synth since it has the look and feel of a subtractive synth but is in fact FM with "analog" surface under the hood. Assumably it was made for thos who wanted FM sounds but feel hard to learn FM..?
ABOUT Der 707 ist wie der DS8 unter der Haube eigentlich ein FM-Synthesizer, hat aber die Oberfläche eines analogen Synthesizers, die Idee dürfte die Vereinfachung sein für den Nutzer.
DETAILS as said: it is a 2OP-FM-Synth with "subtractive interface". the filter is also a simulation in FM!
DETAILS eigentlich ist er ein 2OP-FM-Synth mit "subtractivem interface". daher recht speziell.. das "filter" ist natürlich auch eine FM simulation!
SOUND cool effects and percussion stuff, not fat but very special for its FM nature
SOUND abgefahrene Effekte und Perkussion, nicht fett aber speziell und mit Effekten.
