The EMI MD900 is one of those synthesizers that flies under many people’s radar. Despite being a great synthesizer, it doesn’t get much attention. Fortunately, Sonicstate and MATTHS made a video (find it below) about it that gives a good idea of what the MD900 is capable of. While it feels at home in many genres, a colleague of ours called it a dub techno powerhouse – and we completely agree.
But what is the MD900, really? It’s a high-quality polyphonic desktop synthesizer with 16 full stereo voices and multitimbrality with 4 parts, each with its own effects section. The audio path of the sound engines is completely stereo – oscillator, mixer filter, amplifier and effects.
In addition, there are sample-based drum instruments, a versatile arpeggiator, and a step sequencer that lets you control the internal sound engines as well as external MIDI devices.
The well-organized user interface lets you control all the major voice parameters with a dedicated knob in real time. The large touchscreen and several smaller screens help you navigate through the synthesizer’s numerous parameters. This makes working with the MD900 truly intuitive, despite its enormous capabilities. Great usability, high-quality materials and top-notch converters are the hallmarks of this unit.
We recommend testing the MD900 in our showroom at Kottbusser Tor. Bring some time, there is a lot to discover! But first, the Sonicstate video:
