Balázs Neumann Profile:
Check out the popping groove Baláz lays down with two different clav sounds.
This beautiful string improvisation shows the power of a single MODX+ part.
Check out this soulful EP performance. As he plays, Baláz increases the key-off noise with a fader, engages both chorus and tremolo effects with the assignable switches and brings in a pad at the end. Beautiful!
