Electronic Musical Instrument
  • 32 mini keys
  • built-in speaker (with unpleasant, loud mid-range resonance)
  • monophonic main voice
  • 8 OBS preset sounds {violin, organ, harpsichord, piano, celesta, trumpet, clarinet, flute}
  • 12 preset rhythms {rock, disco, 16 beat, swing 2 beat, swing 4 beat, samba, bossa nova, beguine, tango, march, slow rock, waltz}
  • volume switch (5 steps)
  • tempo +/- buttons (16 steps?)
  • ROM- Pack music cartridge slot for melody guide and "auto play" (jukebox mode)
  • "melody guide" keyboard play training feature with key lighting (32 red & green LEDs above the keys), 4 levels and automatic rating
  • 2 "one key play" buttons (to step note by note through ROM musics)
  • semi- analogue sound generator similar like VL-1 (only monophonic keyboard play, but additional 4 note polyphonic accompaniment during automatic ROM music play). The digital envelopes (with audible zipper noise) are linear and thus sounds unrealistic because they fade silent too soon.
  • rhythms consist of dull and distorted digital (squarewave?) blips + simple shift register noise {base, low tom, high tom, snare, cymbal}
  • CPU= "HD61703B01, 5L  13"
  • tuning adjustment trimmer
  • headphone and power supply jack
