ABOUT little multitimbral Synth. At the time of release midi was new and multitimbral synths something very unusual.
ABOUT Kleiner multitimbraler Synthesizer (zu der Zeit war Midi neu und Multitimbralität nicht selbstverständlich)
DETAILS in dual mode it sounds nice, fast LFO. waves can sound simultaneously. HARDWARE: 6 CEM3394 uP Voice CEM3372 Filter/Mix/VCA - one of the first mono mode midi synthesizers. 6 voices. and a very simple sequencer. todays view: you can switch it to double mode and tune up the LFO for nice FM filtering.. it's only one VCO per voice, thats why it's better to go to dual mode.. stable but you need a nice info about the progging stuff (midi and stuff is progged by those numbers on the right side!.. the parameters are printed on the case.. but the midi stuff isn't..) -eg: double mode is track rec & select 2 -midi clock input: speed full left -prog change enable/disable: ctrl rec.+1 -local on: track rec.+7 -local off: track rec+8 -wheel/param.change: ctrl rec.+4 -dump to midi:ctrl rec+2 -dump all 100: ctrl rec+9 dump seq: ctrl rec+0 midi modes: omni on: track rec+1 poly on: track rec+3 mono on:track r.+4 good to know, huh?
DETAILS schneller LFO, im dual mode bekommt er 2 VCOs, dann klingt er auch fett. waves können unabhängig aktiviert werden (und gleichzeitig erklingen). HARDWARE: 6 CEM3394 uP Voice CEM3372 Filter/Mix/VCA
SOUND has a fast LFO, so it's good for FX.
SOUND FX sounds liegen ihm, da er einen schnellen LFO hat.

SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS known or written as SCI or Dave Smith
sequentialcircuits synth manufacturer logo - Hersteller Logo

Dave Smith was founder of SCI, he runs Dave Smith Instruments today and continued what he started in the late 70ies building the first synth based on SSM chips (later Curtis) and it was polyphonic. Yamaha aquired the rights for SCI and Prophet later, so Dave won't name his synths prophet in the future..

Dave Smith war der Gründer und Macher hinter SCI, heute arbeitet er weiter unter dem Namen Dave Smith Instruments und führt fort, was er mit SCI begann. SCI startete ende der 70 mit dem Prophet 5. Basis der Idee war einen polyphonen Synthesizer auf Basis der damals neuen SSM (und später Wechsel zu Curtis) Chips zu bauen. Die Namen SCI und Prophet gehören heute Yamaha.
