ABOUT Very simple ROMpler with just a very little sound tweaking parameters. The U220/ U20 can do more (ADSR etc.) and has more memory and more PCM Cards. It's based on the LA-Synthesis (D50 etc.) but since it shows no more than a few parameters to the user it appears to be rated as a simple structure preset thing.
ABOUT Sehr simpler Presetracksynth ohne viele Eingriffsmöglichkeiten. Der U220 / U20 kann mehr, der U110 ist quasi eine Presetversion der LA Serie (wie D50 etc.), man hat jedoch keinen Zugriff auf die meisten Parameter oder Layers, weshalb er hier als Simpelteil gelistet wird. Der U220 bekam auch mehr Cardslots für PCM Sounds.
DETAILS Nothing special, really. Uses 32kHz Samples in ROM (2MB).
DETAILS 32kHz-ROM Samples (2MB), echt nichts besonderes.
SOUND Not so flexible preset synth with almost no access to parameters
SOUND Relativ unflexibele Presetschleuder
VERSION U220 allows ADSR access, U110 only allows LFO Settings and Dynamics and Pitch Vel. Env Settings.

U-20: keyboard version of the U-220
VERSION U220: ADSR Reglung möglich, bei U110 nur LFO, Pitch ENV (AR) und Dynamik anpassbar.

U20: Keyboardversion des U-220
