The Moog Opus3, a classic string ensemble, brass, and organ
in one synth. Has Moog filters and a Minimoog type pitch bender. Has that 70's sound that is tough to reproduce
without the real deal. Introduced around 1979-80.
The Sequential Circuits Pro-1. Another classic monosynth. A one voice Prophet. Has the
added feature of two programable step sequences and an arpegiator.While the step sequencer might not be as usefull
today, it is just the ticket for electronic space music. Introduced in the early 80's.
The SCI Prophet VS rack. I had to cheat a bit here, as this is a MIDI module
that is a Digital/Analog hybrid synthesizer from around 1986. But it is a classic synth that has some unbelievably cool sounds.
A vector synthesizer that used 4 digital oscillators that can be vectored in time with automation or the joystick, while 8
analog filters shape the sound. I originaly was going to use a Roland RS-09 string/organ, but it sounded much like the
Opus3 and didn't quite cut it as my only other poly synth. The VS fills that void nicely. I will control this from the MS2000
