The MCX202 also featured
pretty much the same sound set - two string footages and a 'brass'
sound (i.e. the sawtooth through a simple filter) and the two chorus
settings added various degrees of lushness to both. Like the RS202,
it also featured simple control of amplitude envelope with two switched
attack rates and a fully variable release control. Further comparisons
with the RS202 can be found in the MX202's keyboard split options
that allowed different sounds to be played simultaneously in the
low and upper halves of the keyboard.
But despite these 'paper-spec' similarities, in practice,
the two instruments actually sound quite different, the MX202 being
somehow a bit 'fizzier'.
I have been given a comprehensive selection of sounds
from an MX202 by John from Inverse
John has carefully multi-sampled his MX202 to provide
an excellent representation of this rare instrument. This has been
carefully converted to Kompakt for Nostalgia.
