Enormous sonic changes are possible when playing live thanks to the 49 semi-weighted sensitive keys with polyphonic aftertouch! The aftertouch is transmitted individually for each note played, so that the individual pressure of each finger affects the individual keys, creating individual data streams for modulation purposes.

In addition, it includes new sounds and samples from names like Howard Scarr, Richard Devine, Kurt Ader, BT, Matt Johnson, Reinhold Heil, Jörg Hüttner, Mike Huckaby, Thorsten Quaeschning and Sascha Dikiciyan.
