This should be arriving next week and just thought I'd share with the people here some pictures of this neat little synth.

This is an offshoot of the very rare Syntar, The first real "keytar". Ahead of the moog liberation even.

Congrats, Heath, its a great-sounding board with some unique features! I can't think of a better caretaker than yourself and I'm sure George agrees! :thumbleft:
Best Regards, James

"There can be only one" and he is Heath McFinn of the clan McFinn born in the hinterlands of the North in a small,but well stocked Synth shop a mere 400 years ago.

Yup, just one. Although the circuits live on in the Mattson Mini Modular.

Bend, Oregon?!
I really wouldn't have thought it!

I was wondering to see who this was going to after I saw the Matrixsynth post. Very nice Heath. Post up samples when you get it!
