It's worth pointing out that it's a Syntorchestra, not a Synthorchestra.

i loved it. it is so quirky and difficult to play. it just made you work so hard. once you put a little delay and 'verb on it it sounds fantastic in the right setting. you can see one on vangelis' set up on the photo inside of 'heaven and hell'. if fact i'm sure thats what he uses for the sweeping parp at the begining of that album.

I have one of these; I got it probably back in '75, and it still sits in the basement.

It was purchased mainly because I couldn't afford a moog, and I really wanted something polyphonic. It never lived up what I'd hoped from it. The sounds were uninspiring, and the keyboard was always one octive short.

That said, there was one sound which was a "mistake". If you took the right-most poly "stop", and pushed it half-way down, it would just stick and produce a clavinet-like sound, which to my ear was the best sound on the synth.

It hasn't been turned on in 20+ year. I wonder if it still works?

I have one of these..wooden version. I was offered it for my birthday! 3 or 4 keys don't work in Piano mode and octave change is tuned only for poly sounds..no big deal, everything else is fine. Sounds are oldschool (Klaus Schulze used it a lot!!) and totally greassy indeed! It's fat and easy to use, sometimes you can close your eyes and pretend you play a fat Memorymoog pad, or a thick milky lead like a Mini or Odyssey(white) can create. It is definitaly a psychedelic machine that will fit nice in an ambient or trance tune.. It is a simple synth but very punchy and non typical. As it not usual to come across one, this is one instrument that will give an original touch to your sound, which is a luxury in this digital world totally formated.
