The SOLTON MS50 keyboards is a fantastic new generation instrument, designed to meet the needs of musicians looking for high quality sounds combined with top level professional performance.   The potential of these two incredible instruments is practically unlimited, considering that they are able to load new sounds (PCM Voices, PCM Rhythm Grooves etc.) and new musical soft-ware (MIDI backing, Styles etc.) by means of the incorporated Disk Drive unit.

KEYBOARD

61 velocity sensitive keys (4 Dynamic Curves) with Aftertouch, Modulation, Pitch Bend, Portamento, Global Transposer, Octave Down, Split,Arabic Scale.

256 ORCHESTRAL VOICES

The superb sound generation of the keyboards comprises 256 Orchestral Voices specially created with Multi-Synthesis Technology.  (Ascolta un brano eseguito con questa tastiera)

The sounds are sub-divided into 16 families according to General MIDI standards and can be selected from two separate banks.  The voices have been sampled using the very latest Pulse Code Modulation methods (PCM) to reproduce the natural “feeling” and playing techniques of each instrument.

128 USER VOICES

The 256 Internal Voices of the keyboards can be edited by means of the Attack, Decay, Release, Cut Off, Resonance, Tune, Octave and Modulation parameters. The User Voices can be memorized in 128 internal memory locations or saved on Disk, and when in the PLAY mode perform in exactly the same way as the Standard Preset Voices, providing alternative sounds for the making of new Programs or Patterns/Styles.

12 DRUM SETS – 192 PERCUSSION SOUNDS

The MS60 and MS50 are provided with 11 Preset Drum Sets and a User Drum Set with which the player can create a completely new Drum Set to his/her personal tastes using the 192 percussion sounds available. The User Drum Set is also used to remap the drums in the MS5, MS4 and MS3 musical backings. The percussion instruments are divided into 7 separate groups: Bass Drum, Snare, Hi Hat, Cymbal, Toms, Hi Latin and Lo Latin. Each group is provided with independent Volume, Reverb. and Pan Pot controls and can be included or excluded while playing by just conveniently pressing an On/Off key.

PROGRAMS

The Programs are combinations of 2 or more keyboard voices (max. 4), of which the Volume, Chorus, Reverb., Octave Shift, Detune, Pan Pot and Sustain On/Off parameters can be separately controlled. Particularly rich and interesting effects are obtained when the voices are superimposed in the various keyboard areas using the PATCH mode or dynamically controlled by the keyboard with the VELOCITY SWITCH function. DUET and TRIO harmonizing effects, as well as the possibility to restore the original Programs (RELOAD), are also provided. With the keyboard split into two, some Program voices can be assigned to the Arranger section (backing effects for example) and others to the Solo section by means of the 4 programmable split zones.

GENERAL MIDI

The General MIDI Standard with 16 MIDI parts and 16 separate MIDI channels are used for both instruments. All the sounds have an 88 note range with 28 note Global Polyphony.

DSP EFFECTS PROCESSOR

The keyboards incorporate a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) that produces various effects such as Reverb., Chorus, Rotor, Delay, and Echo Repeat. The amount of effect can be varied separately in all sections of the instrument and can be memorized in a Registration.

64 REGISTRATIONS

64 Registrations can programmed in which it is possible to memorize the major part of the Edit functions provided, as well as the control panel settings. It is also possible to memorize the situation of the 16 MIDI parts of a General MIDI Standard Song in a Registration, enabling a complete reconstruction. Each time the Song is recalled from Disk the corresponding Registration with the new value settings is also activated.

PCM SOUND LOADING

In addition to the excellent internal sound generation, the keyboard can also load all the PCM Voices of the SOLTON Disk Library into the internal memory: Orchestral Voices, Special Effects, Ethnic Instruments or Drum Grooves. This prerogative opens up the keyboards to continuous innovation and sound improvement, thereby obviating the natural obsolescence normally associated with electronic keyboard instruments. The new PCM VOICES or DRUM GROOVES can also be loaded in the MULTITASK mode, that is while playing on the keyboard.

SEPARATE OUTPUTS

The keyboard is provided with 4 separate output sockets to which the player can assign any section of the instrument (Solo, Bass, Rhythm etc.) or even a single percussion section (Bass Drum, Snare Drum, etc.). This characteristic is of prime importance to those who use the keyboard in live performances or in recording studios, as it enables the equalization or effects patching of single sections of the instrument, excluding the internal effects.
