i think this is a great sound module, but i now can no longer get it to receive a midi signal. i have tried multiple masters, cables, and combinations of buttons. i have tried to power it on after the master. i have two, and both have the same situation, i say situation because i hope the "problem" is with me reading the manual and/or pushing the buttons incorrectly.

any suggestions? thank you, rt cook coronetrtcook@aol.com

This is the secret weapon of Vangelis! Just listen any albums of 90's and the choir you can hear is always this modest module! Maybe best examples can be heard from El Greco. Here's another song where you can hear how great this choir sound can be when used right effects:

Luckily no-one seemed to know how great sounding module this is... oops I revealed it now =P

The Symphony has the best choir sound I've ever heard! I've used it for many years and still cannot find a better choir sound. The strings aren't too bad but sound a bit brittle. The brass sound is very thin and useless. The church organ is also impressive. Get it for the choir sound!

Bought it a US$25 mainly to layer piano+strings on my mono-timbre Kurzweil SP76. Serves the purpose well. Multi-timbre is a plus, together with assign 2 outputs. Should be as the 01/W but strings sound can compete with newer synth like the N series. No much choices for patch. Only 7 sounds. Ensemble strings, brass, organ and chorus are good. Solo strings, bass/guitar/drums and pipe organ are poor compared to today's standards.

Conclusion: Well-worth US$25!!!

No pitch-bend, no sound editing! Only preset PCM based sounds can be achieved from this 8-part multitimbral sound module. The sounds are great; try the choirs, starting from bass male voices arising to female sopranos, and you'll get quite impressed with their reality! If you can find it with a piano-card expansion, it coul'd be a good buy.
