Middle button, formant shift:

  • Up formant (analizer 123… -> synthesizer 234…)

  • External patching through rear connector, no internal connections (LED’s off)

The VCO is not 1V/octave, but it makes it easier to get started or to do a demo.

Stereo was achieved by mixing odd synthesis channels to left and even to right.
