particular example is the duophonic keyboard version:



Nyle Steiner told me a while ago that he sometimes made custom equipment with silver panels long after they had switched to the black painted ones.
The biggest reason they switched to black painted panels was that when making the silver panels, they were sanding the aluminum themselves. This
was a laborious task and it was difficult to get consistent results. The later brushed aluminum panels were made by using a wet wire brush and that
worked well enough. Nyle recalls there was also some discussion with his partners about using black because it seemed to be a popular color for synth
panels at the time.

Hello Micke, do you know on what recordings this synth was used? This is one of those machines I've always been intrigued on, I don't know, it seems interesting and also I read that at some point, when you bought this synth, Steiner Parker gave you a Free Sequencer!! Cheers

The Steiner Double-synthacon, Synthasystem modular and EVI are all over the Apocalypse Now soundtrack (1979).

Other users of the Synthacon and Synthasystem were Alex Cima (on the LEM album "Machines" (1977) and "Cosmic connections", 1979) and Larry Dunn of Earth, Wind & Fire.

Moreover, the synthacon was used by Stu Goldberg of Mahavishnu orchestra (possibly on "Inner Worlds", 1976), Bernie Krause ("The New Nonesuch guide to electronic music", 1980) and Suzanne Ciani (though I'm not sure if she ever recorded with it).

More recent artists using this great sounding synthesizer include Depeche Mode (on their new album) and Moog Cookbook ("Ye Olde Space Band").

Can't think of any others at the moment...

Hope this helps

Thanks Micke, of course you help :), of those records I've only listened to Depeche Mode SOTU. I think I must get the Apocalypse Now Soundtrack, it's been around this forum a lot.

Yeah, I do recommend you to get that soundtrack. In my opinion it's one of the best synth-scores out there.

To set things right: Stu Goldberg used a Steiner synthasystem modular on Mahavishnu Orchestra's '76 album Inner Worlds, not a Synthacon.

So I wake up this morning to find this:

http://montreal.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sel ... Z135461468

And I quickly send an e-mail to receive this as a response:

Hi,


Thanks for your inquiry. The price is $1800 , it is in perfect condition as you can see in the pictures. The price is low because i am in need of some money QUICK (some bussines issues) and i would like to have a quick sale at this price. I am located in England and a friend of mine told me to sell this on the Canada market because i might sell it quick there. I would pay for shipping and insurance to Canada. If you are interested to buy it we can use eBay to make the deal safe and quick.

Let me know what you have in mind.


Respectfully



:( :( :( I was ready to jump in the car and go out and grab it.
