  1. I like everything about it except the name SY-1, just because that was a Yamaha synth. Also curious about the mentioned-but-not-shown steel case.

    1. Thanks, y’all, I withdrawal my criticism of THC taking the name from Yamaha. Now I’m surprised Pearl got away with it.

  2. Count me in for 1-2 Units! Are you willing to offer full build Syncussions? In the unit i 1v/oct of tuning like in the original SY-1?

      1. no. correct . .. but does this one have the tune input like the original ?? the original with insert cable plugged in you can tune the sy1 with CV ..

    1. Pretty sure that’s just a CGS Gated Comparator type circuit.

      Pretty stoked for this to come out. Glad I sold one of my syncussions recently.. Noe I can fund 5 new ones 😀
