   (0 reviews)

The Generalmusic S2 Turbo Series Music Processor is an instrument conceived and developed with the most up-to date technology to guarantee a high degree of reliability and durability. The name “Music Processor” describes the instrument’s ability to handle the complete, creative process, starting from sound synthesis right down to the registration of multitimbral songs and the complete control of the entire MIDI setup.

The S2 Turbo Music Processor is a digital synthesizer workstation with 6 MB of sampled waveforms as the basis for the oscillators which are processed through two variable filters and a programmable envelope. The S2 Turbo Music Processor came standard with 2 MB of sample ram and with the new Turbo feature, it allowed sample data to be loaded directly into the S2 from floppy disk without having to be converted on a computer first. Other new features added were 2000 sounds up from the original 1600 plus 100 Performances.

The S2 Turbo retains all the great features from the original models like 209 waves in rom and two 12db variable filters that could also be set to act as one 24db variable filter. The keyboard still has Aftertouch and Velocity. With it's multiple sliders and buttons, plus two sets of MIDI jacks, make the S2 Turbo a great MIDI Master Keyboard Controller.
