This is a string machine, this is a synthesizer, this is a bass synthesizer. And it could be all of them at the same time, which is why the original unit was billed as “Analog Orchestra”
We also added: Vintage Analog Choral Machine (as an alternate generator source for the Synthesizer part) and uncovered numerous hidden parameters of the vintage String Machine model.
The X-505 offers all the layering and tuning capabilities of its glorious ancestor, including its precious balance between strings and precise balance for all inputs of the quad (yes, 4) BBD Chorus block.
What’s more: many hidden parameters are now available to tweak across the different X-505 panels for a wider sound palette. Luscious sounding analog phaser and vintage reverb add to this palette.
