Notes The MKS-70 is an identical rackmount version of the JX-10 synthesizer. Released in 1986, it combines two individual JX-8P synth engines for an outstanding warm and analog sound which is used in many modern studios all over the world. It comes with an onboard "chorus" effect and offers a wider range of programming using the optional PG-800 Programmer. This programmer is highly recommended for those who will be programming unique sounds since editing from the rack-face itself is cumbersome and tedious. The MKS-70 has a "chase-play" function which allows programmable delayed repeats of voices from either of its tone modules. The chorus is either off, slow or fast.
