I have played Crumar Orchestrators for the last 25 years. I purchased 2 of them in 1974. I now wish that I purchased about 8 of them!!! I use the bass patch on the left hand side while doing chords on my more modern keyboards. If anybody out there has an orchestrator for sale e-mail me. I would appreciate it.

I do love the "orchestrational" sound you get from the Crumar, the ability to mix and volume control for build ups in songs. I've been using it for so many years along with other keyboards. It gives me the sound I want every time.

I recently purchased a Crumar Orchestrator (AKA Multiman-S). I payed $80 dollars for mine. It wasn't in the best condition either, but it's the sound that I care about. The brass is the 'best' sound on the synth, IMHO. When I first bought it, the brass filters contour/emphasis (cutoff/resonance) were a little weak. I poped the top off, and there were cutoff/resonance range controls. It sounds quite cool now that I've tweaked it. I also modified it more, putting an extra rotary cutoff control in the side plastic compartment. This makes it easier to control than the verticle cutoff slider that always got stuck. The cello and violin's also sound alright. Overall, the tweaked brass sound can make some cool acid-like sounds, so I'm happy.

The filter for the brass sound is phat..............very powerul without the resonance...... a few of the string sounds are okay too...........but beyond that..........it is handy with the filter pedal...........can achieve some cool high end filter throbs and swells......... I found mine in a closet at my church..................

I used to play an Orchestrator when I first started playing in club bands. Only the string and brass sounds were worth anything, but it had kind of a cool sound. Probably not anything that would have any relevance now. I remember it being very heavy, looking extremely stupid, having cheap sliders and keyboard, and not being very reliable - and that was 17 years ago. Pass on it now, but many of us have fond memories of it who couldn't get our hands on an Arp String Ensemble, the king of 70s string machines!

P.S. The Orch's little brother, the Performer, was the lamest turd to ever be called a keyboard.
