Does this mean that it is only using the monophonic bass region of the Quadra for the bass? Anyway, the poly brass sounds like it's coming from a different keyboard.
With regards to the comment I made about a P5 responding to touch, I'm not talking about the keyboard's features (i.e aftertouch), more it's specific character. One of the things that is distinct about the P5 to me is its round yet snappy sounds, i.e. along the lines of 4:08 in the WP recording. You barely hear the notes that comprise that downward series of chords -- nevertheless, there is a wonderfully rich exhale with each stab, a sort of puffing texture (better example in Burning Down the House off of Stop Making Sense). I've never heard another synth do this -- maybe I am in this recording, so was wondering what it is.
If you can articulate that tone better, would love to hear it. It's my ideal snappy sound, and would love to own a synth that can make it (all of the polysynths I have played are not snappy enough -- I'm assuming it's the envelopes?).
Thanks guys. If anyone has more insights into what synth that is, I would appreciate hearing them!
