Sequential Circuits SixTrak

via this auction
"6 notes polyphonic
6 notes multi-timbral
(probably the only multitimbral analog synth under 1000$...)
100 patches : onboard memory to store your own sounds
onboard sequencer (basic but quite fun)
arpegiator (3 mode)
Unison and Stack-Mode
(the Stack-Mode allows you to layer six sounds from the 100 in bank and trigger them all at once....Huge sounds !)
pitch wheel, mod wheel
stereo out (1/4 jack)
midi in, midi out
switch pedal input

36 parameters (for each of the 6 voices) to control from the onboard knob or remotely via any MIDI controller or sequencer (Cubase, Live, FruityLoops, etc)! Yep !!!

VCO : Coarse, Fine, Glide rate, LFO on
ENV amount, ENV invert, Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release
Saw on, Tri on, Pulse on, Pulse Width, PW LFO on (you can mix the 3 waveforms instead of having to choose between them !)
Osc/Noise mix
VCF : Cutoff, Resonance, LFO on, Keyboard tracking amount, Freq Mod (sounds a bit like a ring modulator but less metallic)
ENV amount, ENV invert, Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release
VCA : Voice volume, Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release
LFO : Frequency, Prog amount, Tri/Square waveform

Really cool to program and automate from softwares, totally integrated, it's like having a synth plugin excepted that you have a vintage analog sound instead of software emulation"
