How many Voices has the NordLead2?

Sometimes it looks if there are less then 16 Voices available without the use of the Unison (which provides the half = Voices).

To keep the keys triggered I used paper tape as soon the sound is there.
Staring with the highest note in a particular octave setting and keeping this note pressed, I pressed and taped the lower octaves. The 17th keypress mutes the highest note (which can be clearly heard) and replacing it with the sound of key press 17, e.g. a two octave lower one.

Conclusion: there are 16 Voices available without Unisn.

Listen to the mp3 file.
Enjoy the looks of my heavily abused Lead...

During above tests I noticed some tones were out of tune. The next mp3 file has a little detuned sound at the 6th sound of this Arpeggiator configuration. Playing a C maj chord together with the mp3 file changed it back to normal.

Only on headphones.
Something psychologic?

At http://electro-music.com/forum/topic-34664.html&sid=768a0641bafe23e20e06657388bc7737
there was mentioning about irregular hick-ups.

The only way to archieve something like that is using Percussion mode and mute some regions.

Note the highest sounds have Glide and Unison for FX (by the NL2!)
