I had one of these back in 1977. My mom picked the thing up at a estate sale for $1 US. It was labeled as "Organ, broken". Most awesome damn toy on the planet as far as I was concerned. I used it for about 7 years until it got stolen out of the van after a gig. The patch bay was great, and you could generate some of the most insanely whacked sounds by patching the lfo's into each other and pulling a parallel patch to drive the S/H at the same time. I used to patch guitars into the thing, and run the output into a stereo pair of marshall's with a morley echo chorus. I'd rigged up a few voltage pedals to modulate the LFO's and filters with, and coupled with a bastardized home made hex pickup, I had a really unique guitar synth. Phenominal unit, and I miss it dearly, and would kill to find another one, even though I no longer play professionally. Seeing the picture of it here nearly brought tears to my eyes.

This synth is an anolog lover's dream!! If you can ever find one I highly recomend at least checking it out. There is absolutly no patch recall, and if get a patch, and then lose it your pretty much screwed. What I did is relied heavely on the Lfo functions (even though it;s not called an Lfo), and let it go wild, as there is a tremendous amount of drift. Once it started making a cool noise I then sampled it. I filled abou disks full of great Lfo samples before I had to get rid of it. It defenitly deserves the nickname my friends and I gave it: "The crazy synth".
Another cool feature was the fact that with the patch bay on top, you could bypass the circutry and run any external audio through the filter, and ring modulation.

Uh huh!!!!! This is the coolest synth I've encountered ever. If you get your hands on one prepare yourself for years of companionship with this machine. Everytime you sit down in front of it...if you have the imagination....you'll find yourself dealing with a totally different type of sound. Try modulating the filter with osc 1 in high mode and tuning it so the modulation is in tune with the pitch of say osc 2 and then do the the same with osc 4 in high mode. It has to be the most screaming pyscadelic sound and analog could dream of and kicks the screaming kurweil from what i've heard of it, its sought of like a ringmodulation of the filter. It rocks and baby it rolls. Good luck with controling via midi, I'm sure as hell trying. Its 1.2v per octave, I think the kenton pro 2 is scaleable so that'll do it, also you'll need to hack into it the keyboard input jack to add a combined gate/trigger. Reagardless its a hell of a lot of fun. And nothing in the world sounds like it. It can be just as much hardcore as it can be mellow. I recomend it over any analog around its price range eg. ms-20's, minimoogs, you know the drill. Happy music making bueno estente, Project plutomic (gamma insight)
