Gleeman Pentaphonic

   0 reviews  -  1203 views

    Give your most powerful performance with the Pentaphonic's ingenious chord sequencer. It lets you play a live synthesizer duet with the musician you know best yourself.

    To perform a duet solo, just switch the built-in sequencer to RECORD and play normally on the 37 note keyboard. You can store up to 300 notes in any mix of polyphonic or monophonic/glide. Switch to PLAY and the sequencer begins repeating your phrase exactly as you recorded it. Use it as a background melody while you punch through with your lead in poly or glide. It's an effective doubling of your performance power.

    The Pentaphonic's sequencer serves double duty for special effects and composing, too. The sequence rate, delay, and volume can be adjusted to create rapid cascades or deliberate dirges. Perfect for composing, the sequencer is a powerful analytical tool in developing your music.

    On stage, the Pentaphonic delivers the mas-sive sound power you need to grab the spotlight. Three chorusing oscillators in each of its five voices provide great tonal depth. Each oscillator gives you the choice of eight selectable waveforms, two octaves, and vari-able gain. The oscillators are temperature-stable, never need retuning, and can be instantly transposed to any of thirteen different chromatic keys. Add the fully polyphonic filter, sequencer, and modulation, and you have powerful versatility.

    We want to double your performance power, not your muscle power. That's why we miniaturized the Pentaphonic into the ultimate portable. It measures only 6 x 13 x 25 and weighs a mere 18 pounds. And if you're really traveling light, leave behind your sound system - the Pentaphonic speaks for itself with its own powerful five watt amp and 4 x 10 speaker.

    So take control of the Pentaphonic and get ready to make your power play.
