   0 reviews  -  1278 views

    The VX90 from Akai is a 2 space rack version of the AX73 6 voice Polyphonic Synthesizer. Again the unit is considered part of the Akai ecosystem of music gear interfacing their pro samplers with their synthesizers.

    The instrument is a 6 voice synthesizer with 2 vco's per voice offering sawtooth, sine, square, or, pulse waves, including noise for the oscillators. It also features the autotune function to help stabilize the oscillators works through MIDI to tune to other instruments.

    The VX90 holds 100 patches and offers 1 LFO and 2 envelope generators. The user can play as a normal polyphonic synthesizer or stack all 6 oscillators as one big mono note unison mode. The rack also has the 24 db/oct low/high pass filter from it's companion AX73.
