Another great specimen from behind the curtain. Not to sound facetious but I can’t help expressing my appreciation for someone with that many synths who uses an ironing board for a stand.
and this is the joke 🙂
ironing board? where? this is a irony board. lol 🙂
A commie analog poly synth! I want one!!
And about the ironing board – the struggle is real! If you start collecting vintage synths you’ll run out of things to put them on sooner or later!
I have one for sale, and a lot of new spare parts on top.

how are all those organ sounds coming out of something purely analog…id say theres gotta be some sample waveforms in there surely….
the sound character is almost a bit organ like. combinied waveforms

When I first read the title, I thought the synthesizer itself ran off of six volts of power.
