I have owned a Crumar Multiman for many years. In the mid 80's I customized it to be playable via midi. It is a great instrument for it's time. I've had a lot of fun and creative times with it!

With the advances in keyboard technology over the years I decided long ago to return the Multiman to it's original setup so it is back to it's original configuration.

I have the Multiman's schematics if anyone needs them.

a heavy, rugged machine, everything on it feels oversized. warm, creamy sounds. i actually like the piano sound, when mixed with the clavichord. i recommend sending it through stompboxes. the strings have a nice low end to them that sits nicely in the mix. they are cheap and abundant. if you have enough space, and love its retro sound - get one.

The piano sound is totally rubbish-it would never cut through in a mix, but the clavichord sound is pretty cool- like a very trebly harpsichord. Bass sound is too resonant - the notes ring on for ages after you have played them- the brass and string sounds are fantastic- great filtering effects available in the brass section- plenty of scooshing

I bough my Crumar Multiman-S (it's the European version of the Orchestrator) for 30 euros and I have to say that it's worth ten times that! Piano and Clavichord sounds are worthless and the Bass is only good for that "Crazy Diamond" imitation. But those strings sound just lovely!

I also have a Solina String Ensemble and a Moog Opus3 and their strings all sound a different, but equally great. Multiman's strings are closer to the Solina than the Opus. The biggest drag is that there is no attack control for strings.

Multiman's Brass section sounds really nice too and IMO it's better than Opus'. Unfortunately the attack and decay for the filter don't work on my Multiman, which really sucks. If someone knows a fix/has schematics please email me!
