first post here
I'm evaluating the purchase of a synth, and... guess what? I'm fascinated by all the features of the S70XS
Since I can't find one here at any of the local shops to try it out ( ), I'm going through the manual to try to check if it can fullfill all my needs.
There are a couple of things I can't understand though, and I'd really appreciate if you could shed some light on them.
Here are my first questions:
- one of the first features being explained is the ability to store up to 128 "programs" (let them be either voices, performances, etc) and recall them with a single button press: but what are the buttons designated for this? How do I move from one stored "program" to another during a live concert?
- I see the synth has input for two (continuous, right?) foot controllers, can I use one of them to control a parameter different from the volume, i.e. the attack speed of a string voice / sound?
- given that the previous has an affirmative answer, will I be able to store that setting along with the voice / performace / master I'm configuring? So that when I recall a stored program, the pedal settings will be recalled too?
- I read that there's the possibility to record or reference (or similar, I didn't get it all) a wav file on the synth and set it up so that it is part of the performance being played: it that right? will I be able to, e.g., play a portion of a song with a piano voice, then start the wav file reproduction, then stop it and continue with the piano portion?
Thank you very much!
