the top-end 'art' model, with its four separate channels, offers both a 32- and a 33-voice analogue synth keyboard plus a full array of synth voice controls plus a large, fully-featured performance control panel.
other features include two fully-featured midi output modules, one 24-slot fx processor and a 1/4' headphone jack. the instrument comes complete with an excellent set of software presets for creating a wealth of rich, expressive sound.
with the 'art' model you don't get all the bells and whistles of the 's' version, and it's £200 less than the top-end s model. but for this price and for the ease of use and reliability that the s model provides, the art will appeal to many keyboard enthusiasts.
