It also features 128 polyphonic voices for smooth performance, even with stacks of sounds playing at the same time.
Prelude is packed with a wide variety of contemporary sounds and intelligent backing styles, plus loadable banks of ethnic sounds and styles from around the world. Style Converter and Playlist Editor software is included so you can customize and arrange your songs via PC.
