Description

The Korg X****1 is a very underestimated synth. What it was intended to be, was a stand alone guitar synthesizer. What it now represents, in these enlightened times, is an all analog, quite unique, signal processor/effects unit. Whereas a true guitar synth really requires its own dedicated pickup arrangement, this unit simply accepts a standard 1/4" jack input. Just patch your guitar, microphone, or other instrument into the X****1 and play one note at a time. Sporting both CV/Trigger inputs AND outputs, these features alone, make it quite a useful little toy. The front panel is divided conveniently into semi-preset traditional sounds, called "Instrument", and more adventurous sounds with the nomenclature "Synthe". The Instrument sounds are named Electric Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Dist. Guitar, Violin and Flute. The Synthe sounds are designated as graphical waveform icons (Pulse, Ramp, Square). Every voicing has adjustable parameters, with most of the Instrument sounds having a filter control, bar the Violin, which has an envelope control. The Synthe sounds all have envelope controls, namely Attack and Decay.

List of Synthesizers featuring rare features

Here's original thread: https://www.gearslutz.com/board/electronic-music-instruments-electronic-music-production/633683-list-synthesizers-featuring-rare-features-keep-me-updated.html I had been inactive so it became archived and therefore isn't able to be edited. Also, for anyone complaining like "you list a 'rare' feature and then 30 synths are included?": The point is not to show some ultra rare features that only include couple synths, but to make a list of somewhat uncommon...
