ABOUT 2 VCOs , structure is 2 tones per patch (Roland slang is upper and lower), AD env for pitchmod, USB for audio + midi, edit software, strange: 32 ram patches only. d-beam it's a VA version of the Vsynths VA engine.
ABOUT 2 VCOs und 2 Tones pro Patch (bei Roland upper + lower), AD env für pitchmod, USB für midi und audio + editor software, nur 32 speicher. d-beam - er ist letzlich die VA Sektion des Vsynth.
DETAILS Nice two-OSCed synth, it has 2 filters: one for audio processing, the other is the "normal" filter for the voice. There are Dual and Split Modes, so it is in fact 2x multitimbral but only via one midi channel, so it's just like earlier Poly-Rolands.
DETAILS ein netter 2 VCO Synth, einer der Filter ist für Audio (rot) der andere ist der "normale" Filter, der aber auch auf Ext. gestellt werden kann pro OSC. Dual oder Spltmode gibts (damit Layerklänge) aber sie werden über den gleichen Midikanal gesendet/empfangen, so wie früher eben auch.
SOUND bass and lead, close to vsynth sound engine or the jp8000..
SOUND bass und lead, klanglich nahe am vsynth/jp8000
