  • Summary: The best thing about this axe is the keyboard feel. It is the best in the industry. The S6 piano sound is very subtle, but doesn't have the growly bass that I like. The bell-like highs are very good though. The CIII grand is an exciting, live sound, but without the nuance of the S6. The sound set from the motif xs is excellent. Great Hammonds, Rhodes, strings (I love the phase string). Some usable synth leads.
  • Pros: Excellent Organs Etc, Responsive / Good Action, Very Good Piano Sound, Well constructed
  • Cons: Bad Display, Heavy

It does come with a manual and you will need to look some things up if you want to understand how everything works quickly.

Nur die Bedienung... ich weiß nicht, wer sich so ein Konzept ausdenkt. An einem Synthesizer, der besonders für den Live-Einsatz gedacht ist, müsste man doch auch ohne PC-Editor an den Sounds schrauben können. Dabei geht es nichtmal um Hüllkurven oder LFOs, sondern z.B.
