Using the AiX tecnology, sounds are produced to a high standard with deep bass notes through to crystal clear high notes. Sounds are reproduced from acoustic instruments with delicate treatment of the note's resonance. The Digital Signal Processor (DSP) employs numberous algorithms to suit the expressiveness of the performer. Powerful sounds are produced from the two 15W speakers, whether at home or at a performance venue. The red detailing on the speaker certainly makes this keyboard stand out.
Faithfully reproducing the acoustic sounds, the AiX Sound Source allows you to customise tones to your preferences using 100 DSP effects which uses complex algorithms, reverb, chorus, delay and 10 EQ presets.
A vast library of 800 tones and 235 rhythms cover a wide range of genres suitable for a myriad of applications including composition, arrangement and performing live.
