"'At last, a digital synthesizer that permits the fusion of synthesis and analysis! The 16's touch-sensitive control panel gives access to all Dynamic Additive Synthesis parameters with unprecedented operational simplicity. With its General Audio Processor, a specialized A/D converter, the 16 can analyze and reconstruct acoustic sound with 64 harmonics, making the analysis and synthesis processes perfectly interchangeable.' We've never seen a Technos 16 and believe that Technos concentrated instead on developing the Acxel Resynthesizer."
