Diverse Orchestral Voices

By selecting a voice from the three parts. ― Organ, Symphonic and Orchestral ―. you can create layered textures for both the upper and lower keyboard.

Acoustic-instrument expression with Articulation Voices

Using new technology called Super NATURAL, the most subtle and expressive characteristics of acoustic instruments such as breath and articulation anomalies are faithfully provided. This technology can be applied to the four Articulation Voices: Violin, Trombone, Cello, and Tenor Sax. In addition, you can control vibrato, pizzicato, portamento, and other expressive nuances to get just the sound you want.

Easy-to-use control panel based on traditional organ-playing principles

With its simple panel layout, AT-800 has been designed with priority given to the real-time needs of playing. Buttons are color coded according to function.

Creative potentiality with expressive Lower keyboard and Pedalboard

The lower keyboard uses a Waterfall keyboard that does not catch the fingers, and is well suited for glissandi and other styles of playing.
