I meant to give it a 4 but accidentally gave it a 3. This 5 should balance it back out.

I really like this synth. Even though its monophonic and only has one oscillator I think it has a great sound. Better than my Moog Satellite (thats not saying much) and has way more control over the sound. Not the best synth but a fun little noisemaker for sure. If you can pick one up for 50-100 dollars then do it. Its a steal at that price for these kind of wild analog sounds.

I used one of these on stage in the 70s. For performance it was a great machine within the limits of a single-oscillator synth.

It made some great sounds. It stayed in tune (once it warmed up). It was easy to move from sound to sound (remember, no memories in those days). Solidly built. I'd buy another if I saw one.

a very cool synth, got it for 30 punds from an old man! I agree with ryan. I wanted to add that the finish artist "Jimi Tenor" uses it live!!!

This is a mean machine. One of the grungiest, nastiest analogues i've ever

played or heard. Get beyond the stupid hardwired presets and you'll make some

of the strangest noises you'll ever hear from a synth like this. Put it on the

Tuba preset, set Attack Bend Tone to Full and Quick, a fast envelope, Full

resonance and low cutoff, with the Touch Sensitive Wah.. go nuts on crazy bass lines.
